    Welcome to AH Rhett! Check out the top of the AH page where it says “Safari Guide”. Lots of good logistic info!
    I will never forget the magnificent giant old oak trees in Baton Rouge! Beautiful!

    Welcome aboard Rhett. Being physically challenged myself I can say that on both of my safaris the Outfitters and PHs I had went out of their way to accommodate me. I can't walk very far, perhaps 200 yards without stopping. That has to be on level ground. I'm 75 and long since retired, if you want to chat about this I generally available.

    Welcome to the family and the forum Rhett, you are in the right place!
    Nothing like AH for information and getting people on their way to Africa.

    Rhett,

    Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.
    Also, I’d bet a pretty penny that, we can put you within a couple hundred yards of some very fine critters, in spite of your mentioned challenge.

    Best regards,
    Paul

    You are in the right place. I was just reading and asked some questions. Next thing I got serious when there were a few offers for a cull hunt. Lifelong dream but it was never priority being on an average wage. But I’m satisfied with a cull hunt and nothing is wasted.
    Good luck and make the most of it!
