    Just want to say thanks for all the great information this site provides the prospective safari client. I have been dreaming of going to Africa to hunt Cape Buffalo for a long time, and now I am leaving to do it in July. Will be hunting with Jaco Strauss in South Africa. Many thanks to Jaco for answering my endless questions and getting things lined up for my hunt. Looking forward to the departure day.
