    Does anyone here have any experience hunting elephant with Graeme Pollock Safaris in Botswana?

    Areas 47 & 49 in Botswana.

    Thank you
    George

    I'm still trying to figure that out.
    You must be Brian from California that booked yesterday on the 18 July date that I wanted to go. The early bird gets the worm.
    It seems like a great opportunity!

    That's me. This will be my first Elephant hunt and my first trip to Botswana. I am doing this simply on the recommendation of Jack Atcheson,

    Will you be going on other dates?

    He's a well respected outfitter. You should have a great hunt.

    Yes but we are having some difficulties communicating with Graeme in the bush to nail down arrival dates.

    I got booked the 2nd-3rd weeks in August. I got your contact info from Jack and will be looking forward to hearing about your safari.
    As I stated before, the more I looked into this, the more I realize what a tremendous opportunity we have!

    I hunted in Botswana with Graeme several years ago (Kalahari KD1/KD2) and found him to be a terrific guy and a top notch outfitter/guide. I am confident that Graeme will work hard to make sure you have an enjoyable and successful hunt.
