Growing up in Alaska there was only one place you ever dreamed of going that could top your backyard and that's Africa. I finally went last month and now I'm hooked (no surprise). Already planning my 2nd trip for later this year. This site has been a great resource so I wanted to stop just browsing and give a little back. I chose South Africa for my first hunt to "ease" into it. Based on recommendations from friends and forums on this site I hunted with Zirk Roeloffse, formerly of African Sky. Couldn't be happier. Everything was seamless from arrival at the airport to drop off of my trophies. First class all around and was fortunate to avoid any and all pitfalls I've read about here. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to share their experiences...it's a tremendous help.
