    Enjoy the anticipation and waiting..its "almost" as fun as being there!

    Take 2 cameras and 16 gig in memory cards..you'll be glad you did. I may have looked like a Chinaman in NYC..but I'm glad I did..I've looked at them everyday since we've been back!

    Thanks James...I am going with Hotfire Hunting Safaris - Hotfire Hunting & Fishing Safaris - met the owners a couple years ago and have gotten some great personal referrals of their operation.

    Thanks for the camera tips! Ive got the DSLRs ready to go and hopefully I'll have some great pics to post after the safaris.

    Welcome to AH Gully.

    First trip, how wonderful. Enjoy every minute and write in your journal every evening so you don't forget anything. You will look back in it.

    Don't forget travelers insurance, it's well worth it. Give us a report and picutres when you get back.

    Hey Gully,
    Exciting planning the first trip isn't it?
    Make sure and visit the shot placement guide.
    I even printed them out in full color so I can take them along to review anytime.
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Just remember my tag line-
    IF YOU GO ONCE-YOU WILL RETURN-DEAL WITH IT
    Lots of good info here on this forum. You will be here every day until you leave even if it's just for easy reading.
    Search my most recent Namibia post and then look for what some of the other "veterans" here have to say. You'll learn lots as I did when I started. Take the entire experience in and not just the shooting.
    Again as many have said, WELCOME, to the best forum on the internet.

    Dear Gully
    ...enjoy the planning process of your scheduled safari - it is a huge part of the safari...
    The magic of Africa will entice you to visit and then draw you back time and time again.

    Welcome to AH Gully! You'll love the East Cape headed back there myself in 15 days.
