I've only been once, but really wish I had taken my wife along for the experience. Now, I'm looking into safari #2 and my wife is letting me know that she WILL be going along this time. If your wife doesn't already have a good camera, get her one, my hunt was with my brother and we took lots of pics. It will be the best hunting/travel experience of your life.

We are budgeting for a new camera. I just bought a go-pro to take. I would like to get our hunts on film.

The wife will no doubt take lots of pictures. My bride shot 1600 of them. She has made two very nice scrap books to show off the hunt.

Hello, just taking a moment to say hi to everyone. I recently found the website and thought it would be right up my alley. Though I have dreamed of Africa for over 30 years, my first trip will be in June of 2015. My family and I are super excited. Hope everyone is well and good hunting!

Welcome Gizmo,

This is the right place for sure.

Cheers,
Velo Dog.

My non-hunting daughter and I just returned from a week of Plains Game hunting and a week on the garden route from Port Elizabeth, SA to Cape Town. I would highly recomend looking at one of the new bridge (bridges the gap between a point-and-shoot and the professional cameras). I bought my daughter a Sony RX-10 and she took 2700 photos plus a few videos.

Dreams only comes reality by living them. Welcome to this great site.
I think it is great to plan a safari to Africa with your family. Enjoy every moment of your plans up to the REAL safari.

Welcome Gizmo! It sounds like a great first safari. I'll be on my first safari Sept 2015, but mine will be plains game only. Enjoy the site and the planning of your adventure!

I too like the idea of a leather / hide bound scrapbook. Thanks for the idea!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
