    Enjoy every moment! It may seem obvious, but you only get your first safari once.

    Four years? Wow. I'd be a nervous wreck with that much lead time. :E Crazy Eyes: Anyway, good luck and enjoy your safari. Like the rest of us, I'll bet you get hooked on Africa and will want to return. Shoot straight!

    I would have heart burn for months after that long. Can you give us any details. Who you hunting with? What is on your wishlist? Who is going? Etc. take notes so you can give us a great report. Have fun.

    :Nailbiting:We are hunting with Legelala Safaris.
    There is 3 of us headed on this adventure, myself, my daughter and a good friend. Plains game is the target.
    with Kudu, Gemsbok, Zebra being my big 3. Will likely add a Impala, Warthog and common Springbuck. But we will see how many game time decisions are made!!!

    Just returned from my first safari in South Africa with Legelala Safaris. Had the time of my life
    Day 1, my first ever African animal, very humbled and in disbelief when I was able to place my hands on this Gemsbok!!!!

    Great first trip. Beautiful animals all, but I love that Kudu. Beautiful shape and they are awesome when they start that 3rd curl. Very nice!
