    Hi everyone. I have been browsing this site for sometime and thought it was time to introduce myself. I am from Michigan and have hunted Michigan, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. I am also a part time gunsmith. I am planing on a photo safari to Tanzania this fall and a hunting safari to Namibia in 2017 after I retire. If anyone knows a good tour guide in Tanzania send me a message. Thanks for such a great site and good bunch of guys.

    It's a good day to be inside looking at a computer screen surfing the web.

    Welcome to AH.

    Can't say I have a Photo Safari operator I can suggest.
    Christophe might be able to help you out if he is not on his way to CAR.

    Yes it is a good day inside. 3 degrees with the snow blowing sideways. Chat with my daughter in Tanzania today 110 degrees differance between my wind chill and her heat index. Looking at all the African pictures and dreaming.

    At 110F I figured she lived somewhere along the costal plain. You should be commended for raising a daughter with a heart to serve.

    Welcome to the site! The right guy for your safari is undoubtedly Johann Lombard from Johann Lombard Safaris. I include his website address for your perusal. johann lombard safaris | Home

    He specializes in photographic tours and guided tours tracking dangerous animals like the Big 5 on foot. He knows Tanzania better than what I know the pattern on my hand.

    When making contact you can use my name and say I referred you. He might give you some discount!

    All the best in your planning.

    Regards,
