    Thanks everyone, for the welcome.

    Marius - I plan to do a basic plains hunt (for species that are hunted by stalking).

    Welcome to the site! This is a great site for any information about hunting in South Africa.

    I was thinking that somewhere near JNB or accessible from JNB would be very convenient. I live less than a one hour drive from JFK airport and can get that nonstop flight on South African Air. That is really convenient. However, my wife is aware of the penguins that are near Cape Town - for all I know, she will want to plan the whole trip around the penguins!

    First. Welcome to AH!
    Well the good news is just about every animal can be stalked :) so that makes the list endless!! Pull out the credit card and go to town!! Or you can be more conservative. Enjoy the planning, its one of the best parts.

    Do you have one animal you just couldn't live without on your safari?

    Sounds good. Luckily there are short flights from JHB to anywhere in the country, so you could end up pleasing your wife at the same time as having an awesome hunt! Good luck.

    I did not think that far ahead. I always thought it would be nice to hunt for zebra.
