Hello everyone, good to make you acquaintance.
I've been dreaming of an African safari for year and got bit by the bug bad when I attended the NW sportsman show this week. Was able to talk to all the outfitters that were there, now time to start planing the hut.

Best regards Mike

Mike

Welcome to AH.

What outfits did you visit with and what country (s) are in your plans.

Look in the outfitter section for PH reviews to help you in your planning process.

What ever you decide to do make sure to do your research, get all the prior years clients so that you are able to make contact and find out there positives and negatives before you book a safari.

Thanks for all the replies, the countries I have been looking at is Mozambique and Zimbabwe. I talked to many outfitters and PH's at the show. I was talking to Russ Field Safaris and DWD Adventures (Deka Tail Safari) the most.

Mike, I'm going to ask you one question...because I have been to Africa. Wouldn't it be best to hunt in a county where the PH or outfitter resides most of the time? Meaning they have a history and solid base. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of guys that operate in multiple countries, very good guys too. If I'm hunting in Moz or Zim, I would make triple sure I have the right person.

One PH I can recommend in Zim is Martin Pieters Safaris. I would contact him to check out any legit offers in Zim.

Moz, I'm less certain. DSC has a list of outfitters they use. I don't trust the SCI list...some are good, others not so much. Moz doesn't have a very strict PH regulation.
Just my two cents.
Check references extensively!

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

im happy to do these deals for 2021

i will knock off 10% off each deal if you take 2 so $18000 per package

look forward to your response

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
