Hello all. My name is Ken. My lovely wife just purchased (lay away) me a new Winchester 70 SE in 375 H&H and a 3 day safari to go along with it (Kuche). I have hunted my entire life and have longed for the day I could experience the dream called Africa! now it can finally happen!

So, with that said, I figured it would be wise to join Africa Hunting forum so I could go ahead and start gathering valuable information and advice from those who have been there and have the experience to offer sound advice to a newbie. As well as enjoying conversations of hunting.

Thank you all, and I hope you have a great one!

Hi Ken! Sounds like you have a great wife. Very exciting to plan your first safari. What are the main trophies you would like to bring home?

Hello all! Thank you for the warm welcome! I heard you were a great group!! I am looking forward to many fine conversations with you folks!

FireBird, Thank you, I am a lucky man! The safari comes with 3 days and 3 trophies; Impala, Warthog, and Blesbuck. I would love to add Zebra, and Gemsbuck. I have several others in mind if I can save for the fees.

Welcome to AH, enjoy the planning it's part of the fun, if you can make it work I would check into extending your hunt by a few more days.

Welcome to AH, Ken! You will have a great time with Kuche! I have a good buddy that also bought a rifle that came with a hunt from from them and he had an awesome time.

Like others have said, add more days(and animals) if at all possible! That's a long way to go for 3 days!!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
