    New guy looking to hunt in Africa for the first time, experienced Rocky Mountain hunter for elk and deer. Any advice as to recommended PH and guide, and best rifle caliber would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to AH. There are plenty of Africa hunters in SE Pennsy. There is usually a winter banquet for the SCI chapters in that area. It's a good venue to meet others with a lot of African experience.

    Welcome to AH jhausladen! Depending on where and what you plan to hunt in Africa, the classic 1 gun hunt has been a 375 H&H. I have taken from duiker to Cape buffalo with one.

    Welcome aboard. Before providing an opinion regarding caliber, what are you planning to hunt? One thing for sure, 22(s) are not recommended for elephant, besides that, they don't qualify as a DG caliber. More info please.

    Welcome to AH @jhausladen ! The calibre of choice will really depend on, first of all, what you would like to hunt as far as species are concerned, and second of all, also which part of South Africa. Terrain varies quite a lot from the North, as compared to down South where we are situated. If you would be so kind to drop me an email at: info@huntsafaris.co.za or drop me a Personal Mail right here on the forum, I will be more than happy to assist.

    Take Care,
    Marius Goosen
