Finally, towards the end of the hunt, things seemed to let up. But some of the other PH's would'nt hardly speak to him. He even started tipping early to break the ice. He told me that he was the first black to hunt safari with this group. I have a hunt scheduled for this year in RSA. We met the PH in person here in America and he seemed ok. But I'm a little nervous about how my family will be treated in RSA. This is an upmarket safari and I'm pretty sure we will be the first black clients. I know that all people are different but generally, what should I expect?
