    Hello, my bucket list includes hunting African game. I am disabled with a bad knee replacement. I own a custom 375h&h magnum rifle. Any ideas or recommendations would be welcome.
    Thanks,
    David Zimprich

    Hello from a fellow Minnesotan, in fact same town. I came back from Africa last week from my first safari. It is truly amazing. The outfitters will accommodate you with whatever your needs, they are amazing over there. Best of luck and welcome to AH.

    Welcome David. I'm from Minnesota also although a bit North of you.

    Yea many Outfitters can accommodate your needs. You can shoot from the truck if you wish. And if you cannot climb up into the back, you can probably hunt from the front passenger seat.

    In fact your timing could be great. Check out the threads about Bossie at @Limpopo Big Game Safaris. He's probably going to be a bit gimpy himself for a while. Maybe you guys could make up quite a pair;) Knowing Bossie pretty well, I'm positive he'd put a custom package together for you at a sharp price. Perhaps some hunting out of blinds, some out of the truck, and some short walks if you are up to it.

    Welcome aboard David. I'm sort of beat up myself. I have two bad knees and can painfully manage a hundred yards or so before I need to get off my feet. I've been on two safaris. One in 2016 and one last summer. Be up front about your physical challenges and your outfitter and PH will do everything in their power to get you on some good animals. On my last safari I bagged an SCI Gold Eland and a Gold Nyala. Your 375 H&H will work just fine.

    Welcome! I’m in Minneapolis, so we suffered through the same winter.
    You definitely will find accommodations. I hunted with Jamy Traut safaris last summer. @Jamy Traut Hunting Safaris
    When answering my questions about good shooters, PH Louw Lotter told me about one gentleman who was an amazing rifleman but had limited mobility. The hunter took a full bag of game.
