    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.

    Make him work like a dog.

    Congrats, you'll have fun with Jaco.

    The tax is always a hunting report with pictures!!!

    Good luck.

    Thanks Mike I too look forward to sharing this special experience with you, if I was you I would get upset with all these guys instructing me to make you work like a dog....(Us I mean.. :) ;) :) ;) )

    I mean honestly is there any other way? :)

    Looking forward to your arrival....

    As always, only my very best....

    Thanks everyone for all of the encouragement and nice comments. Really looking forward to what will hopefully be a good trip over, a great hunt, and a good trip home. Hopefully will have a good story to tell with some great photos to share. Counting the days!
