    Good morning. I joined the forum a couple of weeks ago and am just getting around to introducing myself, more of a lurker than joiner.

    I hunted a lot when I lived in Texas but not so much since I moved to Colorado but I still get out now and again. I’ve always wanted to hunt Africa and have decided now that I’m knocking on the door of turning 60, it’s time. 2019 if I can make it happen, if not, then 2021.

    I’m looking forward to picking the brain of a those who’ve already hunted Africa. Thanks to all who have already shared their experiences.

    Chris

    Welcome aboard Chris35w. If anyone can help push you over the hump we can. This site is filled with guys and gals that offer nothing but encouragement (and knowledge as necessary) to those harboring any thoughts of hunting in Africa. I just recently returned from my second safari and I'll be turning 75 in a week or so. Don't wait too long

    Welcome Chris. Another Colorado hunter here. Just turned 60 and had a great trip to Africa in June.
    As @Ridgewalker said the sooner the better.

    Welcome Chris. Namibia is definitely your best choice for a 'First time Africa' safari. Free range plains game, affordable, and politically one of the most stable countries in Africa. Happy planning
