    I have just recently gotten engaged and plan to have the wedding in April 2015. So we have decided to leave the wedding planing to her and let me plan the honeymoon. With that being said, I am an avid hunter who's dream it has been to hunt in Africa. So what better opportunity than have a honeymoon over there and kill two birds with one stones. Problem is, my wife to be likes to hunt but, would rather be on a beach somewhere. I need to find a great camp with a HIGH end lodge to keep her happy. Meaning if there was a day or two she did not want to hunt, she could be entertained. I am looking to hunt Lion, Buffalo, and 4 or 5 plains animals.

    Any suggestions on a lodge and outfitter???

    Thanks guys. Glad to be apart of Africa Hunting.

    Welcome to AH.

    Check out some of the AH sponsors.
    They will be more than happy to hunt a Lion and Buffalo with you while keeping your new bride entertained on those days she does not want to come along.

    There are also plenty of beaches in southern Africa that are more than capable of doing some payback after the hunt as well.

    Crain8 hope you get to go soon that way you can kick yourself in the butt for not going sooner. Hope the rain in your area didn't hurt you we had flooding here in North Alabama as well. This is a pic of my yard 30 minutes after getting home from work monday.
