I am closing in on 79, and am looking forward to our first safari to the Limpopo region in RSA. with Limcroma.
It will be a couples safari and we are going with a large group, and will be hunting plains game.

Up until now, I have been mostly a deer hunter, but have been fortunate to take many other species of north American game, in 69 years of hunting, along with most of the exotics available here in Texas.

Although my health hasn't been the best this past year, I am looking at this as a trip of a lifetime, and have already started getting myself physically fit to do this.

Robert, welcome to AH! This sounds like it is going to be a fun time!
At almost 72 myself, you’ve got a bit of mileage on me. I hope to stay in good enough shape to still be hunting at 79 as well.
Never hunted with Limcroma, but I’ve met people on the plane and read nothing but good reports about them.

Hi Robert
Welcome to AH! I am sure you will have a great hunt with Limcroma and that you and your group will enjoy Limpopo! May is a good month to hunt with the onset of winter. Days are warm and nights are cool - nice comfortable time of the year.

Closing on 79 and doing an African trip is good going! You are blessed! If you have any health challenges, share it with your outfitter and they will adjust and plan your hunting trip accordingly. Enjoy!

Welcome to AH Robert! I’m sure your safari will be the pinnacle of your hunting career. Safari is truly special.
You are embarking on your first safari at 79. You give this old guy hope.

Welcome aboard Robert. Don't be concerned about your age. I went on my first Safari at 72 and my second at 74. Both hunts took place just prior to my birthday. Let your outfitter and PH know of any limitations (physical or otherwise) that you have and they will accommodate you. Hunting Africa is an absolute blast.

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
