    Default Somewhat New

    Even though I have been a member here for a few years, never spent much time here. That is changing, I am leaving for the Eastern Cape of SA May 6 for my first ever African safari. 7 days 5 animals (Kudu, Impala, Blesbuck, Springbuck & Warthog)

    Going to be quite an experience for me as it is my first ever guided hunt.

    Learning lots on getting permits from Canada (Alberta/Saskatchewan border)

    I am bringing my new Tikka .300WSM that I just got.

    Looking forward to this trip! Just not the plane ride, lol.

    Sounds like you are going to have some fun.
    Congrats on your booking.

    Should be great. The flights are certainly not the highlight.

    Permits (Alberta/Saskatchewan border)? Got me on this one.

    I have written a little on Canadian Permits.

    I guess I could have been clearer, I was getting at that is where I am from - Canada right on the AB/SK border, in this case, literally

    You are not that far away geographically in relation to the rest of the membership.
    I have actually been through town, on both sides of the border, once or twice.

    So, what outfit are you hunting with in EC?

    Kubusi is an AH member you'll have to tell them to jump on the forum again.
