    I want to send out a GIANT thank you to this site & it's members. From day 1, very welcoming & inviting of knowledge. You know who you are.... And a special shout out to my boy Phoenix Phil.... That dude was HUGE....a wealth of intel & patience!!! I beat him down with so many questions, I'm sure he's ready to strangle me. I still owe him a Biggo Texas steak dinner! Again.... Many thanks to you y'all.... Made a dream a reality!

    Glad you had a great first hunt. Love the old worn down springbok. The Zebra......very unique. Congratulations! Thanks for sharing the report and photos.

    All the best.

    Thank you G! All your words of wisdom were indeed appreciated & heeded! It was all great.... Exceeded expectations! I will be back God willing.... Lion.... I don't know just yet... Still a lot of PG to take! Okay.... Not a lot... Some! 10 was a good round number for first safari. Maybe just 5 next time if wife has anything to say.... Best of luck to you... Few more months & you are Eastbound!

    You are most welcome. :) You WILL go back to Africa...it is just a matter of when. In the meantime, you have great memories of your first African adventure. I'll let you know how September goes for me...another adventure with Jacques in South Africa! :D
