first-time safari seminar
If you attend the 2010 SCI convention, you may want to reserve Thursday morning from 10 to noon for attending the "Your First African Safari" seminar.
It will be the 21st year that I have moderated it, and with up to 200 people attending each year, it is SCI's longest-running and most popular seminar.
I'm only the moderator. The experts are Johan Calitz (outfitter talking about what outfitters and PHs expect of their clients), Craig Boddington (arms and ammo for Africa), Jack Atcheson (retired taxidermist talking about what to do to be certain your hides and horns produce the best mounts), Beverly Wunderlich (booking agent, talking about the nuts and bolts of travel and safari), and Ludo Wurfbain (publisher of Sports Afield and Safari Press, talking about what to read before, during and after your safari).
Hope to see you there.
