I hope your soon-to-be wife is also a hunter; I'm lucky to have a great wife who loves to hunt. My buddies are jealous b/c she'd rather have guns than jewelry. We're headed for our 2nd Africa trip (Zim) soon...Have fun!

Congrat's dvdegeorge! On both counts! My wife and I spent our honeymoon hunting in the hill country of Texas. It's great to have a wife that hunts....only now it cost me twice as much!!! LOL

Yes especially since she isn't a hunter!
Johnny Vivier has a beautiful luxury camp with pool and spa so I'm sure she will have a great time also.... How could she not she will be with me!

Congrats dvdegeorge on the wedding and the "huntingmoon" nicely put by Jerome! Glad I'm able to help with the travel arrangements and look forward to working with you along the way. I'm not sure you should answer the wedding or safari question outloud - just to play it safe but I think we all know!
