Welcome, good luck and shoot straight. Make sure you take a journal so you can do up a report when you return.

Welcome Brian to AH and it’s always great to hear someone is taking their family to Africa with them!
You are going to have a great time!
What trophies are you looking for?
What rifle will you be taking?
Are others in your family hunting or observing?
Who is your outfitter?
Don’t forget to practice off of sticks!
Have a grand adventure!

Welcome!

If there's anything I can ever help with locally, I'm in the Greensboro area.

Welcome aboard Brian. AH is the best site on the web to get answers to all of your questions about hunting in Africa. Take a look at some of the forums, they contain old posts that no doubt will have the answers you are looking for. There are a number of outfitters that cater to families but almost all of them can accommodate them. Hunting in Africa is an unforgettable experience. Who did you book with, what animals will you be hunting?
