    Hi All

    I'm from the UK and now having been hunting here for the last fifteen years I'm looking to spread my wings to Africa. I'm really keen to hunt Buffalo, Croc, Warthog and Sable. All in good time as and when funds allow. I'm in the process of buying a Heym 88 in .375 for the job.
    Love reading the threads and will hopefully be able to contribute my own adventures myself soon.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Paul, welcome to the forum! You have an absolutely grand list! Oh and the best cartridge to cover your list! I know because I took them all using the same.
    Start planning and saving for your adventure!

    Thank you for you kind welcome. I'm looking forward to getting more involved and learning from people more experienced than me when it comes to larger game, as I have none, YET.

    1st Pattern Paul welcome aboard. You will find that AH is the best site on the net for researching anything related to hunting in Africa. You proposed 375 H&H should serve you well. What other rifles and or firearms do you own? What do you currently hunt in England?

    Hunted/Stalked most of what Great Britain has to offer. The last pic of the CWD I'm holding my favorite rifle, a Heym 44b, single shot Kipplauf.
    Currently paying for an 88b for Africa and looking forward to the next load of adventures.
