    Marshain,
    Going to RSA is not the same as going to Wyoming on an antelope hunt. Yes, you can book your own flights and fill out all the paperwork for SAP, but I look at a good travel agent as good insurance and well worth the cost difference if any. If you are not a very experienced international traveler why do you want to take the risk of messing up your travel plans?

If I have my firearm permits completed and paperwork in order, what is the point of a travel service such as Gracy, etc? Has anyone encountered problems at OR Tambo with corrupt officials wanting bribes. etc when it comes time to pick-up my guns or some other reason a travel service is needed? It seems that for a level-headed and prepared person, you can do all your travel planning solo, unless Im being naive. Thanks.
    Yes, Sir. We strongly recommend that you consider a travel agent which has experience in traveling to Africa with firearms. It would save you stress and hussle...
