    Let me know if there are any issues in Atlanta, because that is the way I would like to go, as long as firearms aren't an issue.

    Best of luck. This Canuck is also going to Africa for the first time in May. I can hardly control my excitement. I'm hunting for plains game with Kowas Safari in Namibia and have a side trip to Etosha planned after the hunt. Looking forward to hearing about your hunt and comparing notes after all is said and done.

    You booked with Kowas? Be ready for the time of your life. I hunted there last May, and will be there again April 23-28. The Kowas owners and staff are as good as it gets.

    Will let you know how it goes when we get back in May.

    Hopefully there is no problems flying through the US should not be if I have all my papers in place. Using Air 2000 in Jo Burg to help get into South Africa smoothly.

    Had great time they treat you like friends and family. The flight through the US was no problem for myself but my traveling companion got the wrong customs officer and spent 1 hour in secondary until someone with knowledge of the transiting through the US laws. The only problem that I had was Delta was almost 2 hours late leaving Atlanta and we missed our flight to East London.

    I also took a Blesbok, Zebra and an Impala. All were old mature animals but the Zebra which was a younger mare so the hide has no scars or bite marks. We are all very happy with the quality of the trophies that we got. The days ocean fishing and goose hunting were a blast as well. Want to get some geese for the taxidermist the next time. the goose hunt was a last minute thing and the trophies were already at the taxidermy 3 hours away.

    Hamy you will have a great time.

    When I have some time I will tell the story of the trip, this should be in a week or so.
