    I have always wanted a piece of the Africa hunting safari experience, but I have only modest expectations as I am not at all interested in a trophy on the wall. All that I want is a few days to hunt a warthog and have it for dinner. The second part is to be brought up reasonably close to Cape Buffalo. As it turns out, I have a short contract in Doha, Qatar for about a month - ending in late April 2014. Due to being on business, taking a rifle is out of the question. Does anyone have a suggestion, other than to "stuff" my dreams? william_weddendorf@hotmail.com. P.S.: anyone from Nigeria need not be asking me for my bank routing number to put down a deposit.

    I assume there was more to your question than just the rifle issue. Your best bet would be to contact a few of the outfitters on here from South Africa. This would give you a chance to book a few days of hunting and a maybe a few days at Kruger Park to look at big game. Conversly some outfitters have buffalo and other large game on their properties where you may choose to see them but not shoot them.
    And there is lots better eating critters than warthog I promise you! You might find once you get looking into this that you will want to do a bit more than just one animal. Good luck!

    Agree with Sestoppelman, chances are you will want to experience the many different flavors and challenges that Africa's game will tempt you with. In my opinion the eland has some of the most delicious meat I have ever experienced, especially the liver. Not to mention the back straps of an impala. Once you go, you will know, and you will catch the bug dear sir.. Good luck and I hope you get to experience the many flavors and challenges of Africa very soon.. :)

    Don't know about the bank number, but I could point you in the direction to remodel your kitchen and get a love potion to bring back your lost lover.

    Those are just 2 of the many services provided on AH!

    actually, being a pharmacist, I sort of do have "love potions".
    Viagra for the men and Anafranil for the women.
    Most people don't know about the unusual side effect of the anti-depressant drug, Anafranil, on women.
    It seems, in some women, to cause orgasms anytime and every time they yawn. To be a great lover for them,
    all you have to do is get them sleep-deprived.



    btw, welcome to AH William

    William you have to be careful with this crowd and twisted humour.

    There are plenty of Outfitters who will have Warthogs on the property to hunt and will be able to roast them up on a spit (braai) for you.
    Getting close up to Buffalo should not be that tough to do.

    Within 20 yards close enough..

    You might get some other surprises to.

    Welcome to AH William !

    Warthogs are tasty, but eland is much better, and well cooked bushbuck is a treat.
