Hello everyone, I found this website during my frantic search for more info on all things Safari after a good friend introduced me to Peter H. Capstick by sending me "Death in the Long Grass", which I consumed within a few days. Suffice it to say I have been losing lots of sleep catching up with PHC's other works! I've been hooked ever since and now we're looking into a safari plan within the next couple of years. I come here in hopes of learning from and enjoying comraderie with those who are inflicted with the same bug.
Thank you,
JDM

PHC is a good read. Several times. Welcome to the forum.

I have it on good authority that JDM is "in rut" for some good safari stories.

Welcome @JDM. You've definitely come to the right place. I found this site a little over a year ago and am flying out tomorrow on my first African safari.

The safari planning guides are an outstanding place to start. The countless hunting reports will give you a great idea of what the various outfitters offer in terms of accommodations and game. And the members here are a wealth of information, having hunted in almost every country in Africa. You'll even occasionally hear from legendary PHs like Ivan Carter on this forum.

Sounds like El Cajon or someplace east of there.

@PHOENIX PHIL have you heard anything about flights getting delayed out of PHX due to heat? We're flying out tomorrow....

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
