Hello everyone,new hunter to Africa here, looking for knowledge about outfitters. Right now we plan to go to Africa next year for our first hunt. We are looking at Africa Hunt Lodge and Somerby Safari, does any one have any experience with these outfits? And does anyone have any recommendations?

Welcome aboard John18. I live on Grosse Ile an island between the U.S. and Canada South of Detroit. Where are you from? I haven't hunted with Somerby but I've talked to their reps at a SCI Hunting Expo for the past three years. They seem to be straight up guys. I'm retired and available most of the time except for Tuesday Evenings and Sunday mornings. If you want to talk send me a Private Message with your contact information.

Welcome to AH sir! Somerby Safaris are good people. They are at our Kansas City SCI expo each year. Never heard a complaint about them!

Welcome, I'm near Ann Arbor.

Havent hunted in Africa yet but we are booked with KMG safaris for 2021 and from all the reports and high praise you will easily find on this site, I'm confident in the choice and excited to go! Marius has been extremely kind and responsive with all my first timer questions :D

Good luck in your search, lots of good options just do your research!

Hello John18,
Welcome to AH, a truly special forum due to the quality of the members (and Admin!) along with the knowledge and experience they willingly share.

To you, Shootist43, and Mikecatt13, I live between Pontiac and Brighton. Sure would be nice to meet up for dinner some night. - Bill

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
