Actually, it's only 28 days and a wake up when we'll arrive to the sands of the Kalahari with AAA Serapa. I intended to post up 30 days out but work has been wild lately. Looking at the calendar, three of the next four weeks I'm working out to town. I know time will fly by before my wife and I are boarding the flight on Emirates. Good thing we are already 75% packed to go. My world has been chaotic over these past 20 months and a good vacation is just what the doctor ordered. Here's the agenda- arrive in Joberg June 24 at 5:30 am and travel to the Kalahari to hunt with Jacques and AAA Serapa. I first met Jacques at the AH get together at the DSC in 2016. We briefly talked but I never thought I'd be able to hunt AAA Serapa. Once my wife saw the AAA Serapa booth at the DSC show the next day, all she talked about was the beautiful lodge. I told her if the room comes with the young lady in the bathtub they have advertised in the brochure, I'm in I kept in contact with Jacques over the next year and he finally made things possible for my wife and I to come out and enjoy our 10 year wedding anniversary and celebrate my 50th birthday. The Kalahari has been high on my list of places to hunt. Number one priority- track a giant blue eland bull in the sand !! Next on the list are several springboks, black wildebeest, monster gemsbok, and possibly sable. The second leg of the trip will take us back to Great Land Safari owned and operated by John Henry Keyser. I hunted with Great Land in 2015 and just had to get back. Nestled at the foot of the Waterburg Mountains in the Limpopo region we'll hunt klipspringer, giant impala, bushpig, honey badger or any small predator that comes by and anything else needed to fill out my bag. 55+" kudu are also always in play here and I wont pass that chance should it present itself. I killed a 58 1/2 last trip. The weather is really starting to heat up here in Texas. We look forward to cooler weather and colder beer ahead !
