It isn't very often that you accidentally stumble upon a wealth of resources provided by genuinely nice people, willing to assist in every way, but this is definitely one of those times. This is about 2 weeks overdue as I've been researching the threads and corresponding with some members on here already. But wanted to say Hello from Kentucky! I'm currently planning my first African hunting adventure dream and next to actually being in the woods after some critters, this is some of thes most fun I've had in a while. My heart starts pounding with every picture and every tale I hear from you Africa-Nuts! I'll hopefully be joining AA soon (Africa Addicts that is). Glad to be starting into the family!

Welcome! Just remember there is no such thing as a stupid question here. Ask anything you want and all here will try to help.
Planning the first African hunt will be 1/2 the fun of the entire trip. Trust us on this!

I will soon be making a deposit with Kanana in Botswana. I was really looking at SA and Namibia originally and had run a spreadsheet comparing rates, amenities provided, transportation etc. and grouped them into categories. I grouped these based on price, overall appearance/reviews and if they allowed bowhunting/combination. And I'll have to say, some of the finalists for me are active members on this forum. I contacted my top choices and this place just stood out as far as the correspondence I've received and its hard to beat the price as well. My wife and I are planning on going and looking at doing Eland, Kudu, Gemsbok, Blue Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Zebra, Impala, Springbok and Warthog. Its not going to get here fast enough!

Welcome Wildside - I spent time with Jason and his wife at Dallas and Houston the last two weekends. I'm sure you will have a fantastic time! Be sure and post a report with pic's when you return!

It isn't very often that you accidentally stumble upon a wealth of resources provided by genuinely nice people, willing to assist in every way, but this is definitely one of those times. This is about 2 weeks overdue as I've been researching the threads and corresponding with some members on here already. But wanted to say Hello from Kentucky! I'm currently planning my first African hunting adventure dream and next to actually being in the woods after some critters, this is some of thes most fun I've had in a while. My heart starts pounding with every picture and every tale I hear from you Africa-Nuts! I'll hopefully be joining AA soon (Africa Addicts that is). Glad to be starting into the family!

Welcome Wildside! Seems your addiction has already started!!

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!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
