Virgin Safari Planner
I am an avid whitetail bow hunter from Pennsylvania. My Dad has been asking me to go on an African Safari for several years. We have decided to do it in 2013. We are in the planning phase and I found this web site. So far, I have been impressed with the site and all of the information. Thank you all for your input and education.
I am so overwhelmed at this point.

If your overwhelmed now, wait till your first sit in a blind on a waterhole and you watch the Noahs Ark of animals come in.
Send Chris Troskie a PM. He is one of the most honest operators over there.Time spent in Reconnaisance is never wasted.

Welcome to AH
Use the outfitter button to check for PH and outfitters for the country you are looking at going to.
Have fun 2013 is doable and should be a very good time.
I like going the daily fee rate and pay for the trophies i select to go after.
you will have to balance the 2 out to see what is best for you.

Enjoy the planning as it is delicious! Figure out the animals that most intrigue you and where they live, set up your budget and start contacting booking agents or outfitters directly. Agents can be very helpful for the first timer and can help abbreviate the process somewhat and they get their pay from the other end. I have used an agent on all my hunts and feel it is helpful especially for the travel aspects. Jack Atcheson in Butte, Montana is one of the best in the business and has hunts all over Africa for just about every budget. Good luck and have fun!
