    Greetings Ladies and Gents of AH, My name is Matt Anderson. I've lurked around on here for years and now that hunting Africa is a real possibility, I decided to join. My Wife and of course my ten year old Son are both interested in sharing the experiences with me, which definitely makes it more doable than having a spouse resent a solo trip but indeed a bit more pricey.
    I'm lucky enough to say I've been quite a few places across the globe, however, being Veteran, the trips haven't always been the most glamorous. That being said, I've always enjoyed the adventure and appreciated the wildlife wherever I've been.

    I'm excited to learn as much as I can from you fine people and have already started saving my pennies, so I guess I'm officially in the pre planning/planning phase.
    Advice is welcome!

    Currahee. -Matt

    Welcome Matt! Uncle Sam has some piss poor travel destinations for the lowly enlisted man. I got to see quite a few of them myself. Looking back though I wouldn’t change a damned thing though. Some of the finest men I’ve ever known were met there.
    Enjoy and plan wisely, you only get one first Safari.
    Cheers,
    Cody

    It is never too soon to start the planning of your first safari! And you have come to the right place. Having a wife that is excited about it too is a wonderful thing!
    Enjoy the process however long it takes :)

The folks you will "meet" here come from all walks of life but have a common thread. That being their passion for hunting. There are subject matter experts for virtually every aspect of the sport. Sit back and enjoy the ride, but most of all feel free to join in and post your knowledge of and or thoughts on subjects being discussed.
