    Hey all I'm heading to the Eastern Cape of SA in the morning to hunt with Marius Goosen of KMG Safaris. This is my first safari, I booked in January of 2013 so the 17 month wait has been killing me. Got everything packed and as usual purchased a lot of new stuff, so I'm excited and nervous at the same time never been on a plane for this length of time. So thanks to everyone for their post, pictures and advice, I feel I'm better prepared because of all of you. I will post some pictures and a hunting report when I get back. Kurt

    travel well, tay50
    17 months of anticipatation will be well worth it mate .
    hunt hard ,and while doing so enjoy the African bush and all its sights,smells, and creatures .
    return safely with pages of hunting reports .
    the flights to and from are the only negative experience in my opinion .
    the rest will be a blast
    enjoy

    You will have a great trip! The plane ride is brutal but soon forgotten. Have fun and remember you only get one First safari, so savor every moment, remember every sound and smell. Africa is a wonderful place, enjoy.
