    Well after a year of planning and a ton of bothering members on here, I am about to walk out the door on my first hunting safari. I am leaving St. Louis, flying though Atlanta to Johannesburg and then on to Windhoek. I am leaving my house at 9am on May 20th and hope to be on the ground at 9:30pm local time in Windhoek on the 21st.

    Thank you to all those who take time to help me plan, I will update on this thread as much as possible. IMG_2263.JPG

    Good luck and enjoy the experience! I'm 17 days away from my 2nd safari in Namibia. I can't wait to get there. I live in the STL area too. Maybe we can meet up over a beer and swap stories once we're back.

    Well the first part of the trip is in the books, I am in the Intercontinental at the Johannesburg airport. Due to storms in St Louis and in Atlanta, Delta 200 was over 90 minutes late getting us here, so I missed my connection to Windhoek.

    I had about 25 minutes from when the plane doors opened to make the flight, I missed it by less than 10 minutes. So I am booked on another flight tomorrow.

    For those who have wondered how this would work if you have checked your rifles all the way through to your final destination, Delta is holding my bags and will check them in for me tomorrow.

    Talk to you all soon.
