Needed to share my excitement with people who would appreciate it Wednesday, July 30th and frantically trying to make sure all is ready for my first safari. Hunting with Frans Troskie of Sitatunga Safaris and they have been great to deal with. Leaving THIS SATURDAY, August 2nd. Flying to Johan then into Zim on Frans' Cessna for a Cape Buffalo and Sable hunt. Hoping to add Zebra, Kudu & Waterbuck as well. Taking my 20 year old son for him to shoot and impala and warthog (he's spoiled enough already without letting him shoot the world!!!). He is awesome with a GoPro and at editing film so we are filming everything which I will share upon return. Guns (CZ in 404 Jeff & Whitworth in 375 H&H) are sighted in and I'm shooting well off the sticks which really helps with the confidence. Been dreaming of this since I started reading and devoured everything African related I could get my hands on. Special thanks to Peter Hathaway Capstick (whom I got to meet once), Robert Ruark, Earnest Hemmingway and all the other authors that fueled my passion with their writing over the past 50 years! Need to give a big thank you to Lori Ginn at Travel Express who has been fantastic and responsive. You can see my earlier post about my problems with another travel agency that makes you damn sure appreciate someone like Lori, can't recommend her highly enough.
