    New member here, a friend recommended the site. I have hunted Africa 4 times, and spent a season working for a safari company in 2001. I haven't made it back since and I miss the place, so this site is a great place to go when I feel "Africa".

    Thanks for the welcome, and yes, the Africa drug is permanently in my veins. I worked for Tshabezi Safaris, headquartered in West Nicholson, Zimbabwe. I actually published a book about the season, "The Last Safari", although selling the book wasn't the reason I joined the forum. I haven't been back for 9 years and it doesn't look like a trip back is in the near future, so I wanted to at least make contact with people who are going.

    Welcome to "Africa". 9 years is too long to be away from Africa. Has your book been published and where is it available?

    Thanks
    Werner

    Yes, 9 years is too long, but then I waited 39 years to get there the first time. The book has been published, it's available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The full title is "The Last Safari, a Season of Discovery in Zimbabwe". I get to speak with some of the PHs I worked with every year when they come to the States for the various Safari Conventions, but that isn't the same as being there, of course.

    Beautiful cover Bruce. I see that you have gotten some great reviews for your book. You should have mentioned that you have a website, for everyone interested in the book check out www.TheLastSafari.com.
