    Hi
    I have been a deer stalker in the UK for more years than I care to remember,
    A good friend of mine has hunted in Africa several times and has told me many stories.
    On a recent stalking trip, after an evening of story swapping, we decided to start planning my first ever trip to South Africa!
    I am really looking forward to being part of the forum and learning from you guys before our trip (May 2020).
    Please excuse any rookie questions I may have and, be gentle with me :)

    Welcome to our place Russ. As is often said here the only stupid questions are the ones not asked. There is a world of experience here that all are willing to share

    Welcome Russ to AH! It will be very helpful to have an experienced friend go with you on your first trip to Africa. Great idea!

    Thanks for your kind words fellas.
    We are confirming our booking this weekend. We will (hopefully) be going with Settlers Safari.
    There will be three of us travelling, two from the UK and one from over in the US.
    I am sure we will have lots of questions !!
