    Awesome! Have a wonderful trip! (y) And always heed @BRICKBURN ’s sage advice. Take pictures of everything! That is always my regret, wishing I had taken more pics.
    Eat well and shoot straight :)

    The planning is over, now it is time to just sit back and relax and enjoy the moment. Will you be using your own or "rented" rifles? Pictures, pictures, pictures. You lucky stiff!! I wish I was the guy from the "States" that you mentioned.

    I like your choice of rifles. I own a similar 404 Jeffery that I used to drop a nice Eland in its' tracks in July. My buddy keeps hinting that he'd like me to buy his 450/400 Merkle 140 but so far I've been able to resist.
