    Well about time I make it to Africa, been wanting to go for years but always say next year, so I sure I ask all the standard newbie questions lol. I had a great hunt in New Zealand couple years ago so looking forward to planning a plains & buffalo hunt with all you guys help.

    So anyone want to trade a airboat ride for hunt (just a joke) but I am avid airboater, hunter & fishing so I only work to feed my habit and maybe the wife & kids. I guess no helicopter hunting like with Shane Quinn in the alps of NZ. lol

    Welcome to AH Bigun! Africa is a great place to hunt, have fun planning it as that is half of the fun the other half is the new friends you'll make and the animals you'll hunt.

    Enjoy your planning process for your potential safari since it is huge part of your safari.
    You either hate or love Africa...
    If you determine after the first two days in Africa that you love Africa and want to return to Africa, adjust your wish list accordingly to have "reason" to return to Africa...
    More than 80% of our clients return to us for a follow up safari because they love being in Africa so much!
