    Hello, just taking a moment to say hi to everyone. I recently found the website and thought it would be right up my alley. Though I have dreamed of Africa for over 30 years, my first trip will be in June of 2015. My family and I are super excited. Hope everyone is well and good hunting!

    I am going to SA with Crusader Safaris. We will hunt buff in the greater Kruger Conservatory, then move south to the Eastern Cape to hunt plains game. I am really excited. My wife and kiddos are going with me. Should be a great trip.

    We are in the same boat, Gizmo.

    At least 40 years of dreaming, and my wife and I finally go next June.

    What a great adventure awaits you. I just returned not 2 weeks ago with my wife after we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a PG trip to the Eastern Cape. The next year will hold you in high anticipation but the reward will be life changing.....trust me.

    I'm new here myself but if I can help with anything I will be very glad to do so.

    Welcome aboard

    I will add my welcome Gizmo. All the years of dreaming will result in a grand adventure for you and the family. Will your family members be hunting as well? My son went with the wife and me on my first safari last year. It was just as much of a thrill to watch him get an animal as it was for me to take the shot. And oh how they smile........ Good luck to you and yours and may you smile all the way there and back.
