    Wow! I have a big family a beautiful wife of over 20 years and three dogs and I'm not sure that my family would welcome me with this much unless Mrs was with me or one of the dogs.
    As for a safari my main objectives are to get my feet wet,fair chase and hunt hard. I don't need luxury or a tape measure! I don't want put and take! If a monster warthog presents its self for an easy shot at the water hole and it's legal I'm in. Time away is a premium for me and this first time needs to be less than 2 weeks away from home.
    Thanks again for the welcome

    Hard hunt or hunt hard?? I have been reading a lot.:think:

    Fritz has some Hellatious stories are far as "hard" goes, but, if you mean you want to earn your kill without killing yourself, I am sure some of the outfitters here will fit the bill. Good luck to you and happy hunting. There are a lot of good outfitters here.
