    Hello,

    I just signed up in order to learn, prepare, and plan for a safari to Africa. I look forward to learning as much as I can and getting to know the folks on here. It’s a dream to hunt in Africa some day. It’s something I have to work towards, I’m a high school teacher, married with two little girls. Only in the last four years have I begun my hunting journey but it has been wonderful. I look forward to expanding my knowledge and I pray to learn from y’all.

    Y'all have been great. Thank you for the welcomes, it's great to a part of this website. Is there any specific topic I should start looking into to prepare for a African Hunt? I would like to start with plains game, I'm use to Whitetail Deer and Fallow Deer hunting. I use a CZ 550 Sporter in 30-06 for most of my hunting but I do have other rifles. Thanks again for all the help.

    Your 30/06 will be fine for plainsgame, my father used his twice in Africa and was very successful.

    Thank you, I hope to teach them. My 3 year old loves to watch Hunting shows on TV, we keep a trail camera in my wooded back yard. We check it to see the deer visiting, it thrills her little heart.

    Welcome aboard! You'll find some great stuff in the Safari Planning section. You can find info by country, a good planning guide, and the "Before & After" section has various topics that have a lot of good detail. It's where I started planning for my first trip that I leave for in March.

    Welcome! I have 4 daughters and the youngest is the most serious about hunting. Take your kids hunting and you'll never have to go hunting for your kids (saying from a Namibian outfitter I hunted with).
