I am not an African hunter; but one who dreams of one day becoming one. Without dreams, after all, where would be the enjoyment of life? In the meantime, I love reading about all types of hunting and the rifles for the task, as well as shooting and reloading for the ones I own. Having visited this site for quite some time, I find it very interesting and informative reading. Thank you to those who have shared their expertise. I look forward to learning more.

Welcome aboard Mike53. YES you are correct dreams are where things start. What kind and caliber rifles do you own? What do you normally hunt with them?

Shootist43; in addition to Remington and CZ rimfires, I have rifles in 7x57, .30/06, .35 Remington, and ,375 H&H. Then, of course, there is my .54 muzzleloader. I hunt the game available to me; which would be deer, bear, wild boar, and elk for the most part. I also hunt with handguns; mainly an old 1959 Ruger Flat Top .44 Magnum Blackhawk. I enjoy handloading and bullet casting as well. Virtually all of my hunting is done with my own loads. But my experience is small compared to that of many on this site.

Since you already have a .375 H&H, from a weapons standpoint, you are ready to go to Africa now!

Welcome to AH and the beginnings of your African addiction. The enablers on here will help you get to Africa sooner than you think. As said above that 375 H&H is all you need.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
