    I can certainly understand that, as Kudu are very special critters and are usually at the top of everybody's list, as they were mine.

    However, be prepared to get enlightened by the feeling that you may get once in the presence of other certain animals that you will encounter there...

    For instance, I never figured that an Impala would make such an impression on me, but I absolutely love those dang things! They're so regal...

    of course, that's just one example. I fell in love with a lotsa critters on my first trip, and can't wait til this next one, in just 3 days.

    Have fun!
    Jeff

    Forgot you were on your way to OR Tambo. That checked baggage to destination sure would be nice to do with every airline.

    Getting riflepermits.com to deal with the permits was a smart move, we also had them do the VIP service as well. I think it took 10-15 minutes total from the time we got off the plane until we were walking through security for our next flight.

    Sitting waiting for that one as I type.

    Got a Impala, Kudu, Blesbuck, Springbuck & a Blue Wildebeest. Hunted hard for 2 days for a good warthog, but was never able to get a shooter.

    It was the right time to go, most of the animals were in full rut.. according to my PH that helps us get what we did.

    It always goes so quick. Congrats on your success.
    Rest up and we'll see the pictures when you are back in the proper time zone.

    Drug yourself on this plane ride.
    It is the LOOOOONGEST plane ride you will ever take.
