    My Dreams of one day of going on safari has been renewed by my uncle who told me of this site. I have wanted to hunt Africa since I was a young boy , and yes that to involved the readings of Capstick, and Ruark, but time passes and I continue on hunting and fishing here in the states , always thinking that a safari was out of my reach. Seems like I have the drive again to go on safari, because I realize that it is within my reach , and not just once but maybe two or more times are possible. Thank you to my uncle who has been twice to RSA , and has given me ideas, advice and even some gear to get started on this journey.
