Hello all. I'm Dave.

My wife and I are in the initial phase of planning our first hunting safari in Africa. We've done a couple of safari tours in Kenya and Tanzania previously but have never hunted on the continent before. We're looking forward to it. Hoping to learn a lot here before we make the trip.

We're not really sure yet where we will go, or who we will hunt with (again, we're just starting to plan), but we seem to be leaning toward either South Africa or Namibia right now. We're also undecided if we will do a plains game hunt, or dive in deep and go for cape buffalo. Hopefully we will start making some final decisions soon and start preparing.

Welcome to the forums, there is some great info here, plenty of advice and more than a few tall tales. Check out the deals section for some hunt offers from the site sponsors. There are some fantastic deals available this year.

Dave,

You've come to the right place. Study this site and go to a SCI or DSC show and you will learn a lot.
There are so many choices for a first Safari these days. I invite you to check out www.arugamelodges.com in Namibia.
I promise you all of us wish you a great first safari!

Regards,
Philip
