    Welcome Nigel!

    You have come to the right place. Feel free to contact me if you need any assistance.

    November is not the best time because it can be very hot but possible.

    Welcome to the forum Nigel,

    You will find a lot of information on here, if you have additional questions please do not hesitate to post them or send me a PM.

    Good luck planning your safari and we are looking forward in assisting where we can! BTW I love my 30-06 as well, I load mine 165grain Nosler BT and they work great in Africa!

    All my best sir,

    Jacques

    Nigel, welcome to AH. Keep reading these pages for the do(s) and don't(s) tips and tricks etc. about planning an African hunt. Take a look at some of the threads as they may contain the answers you are looking for. BTW your 30-06 makes a fine PG rifle. What are you thinking about taking on your first Safari?

    Welcome aboard Nigel.
    Just ask if you need any info.
    I reload my 30-06 with 180 grain Sierra Pro Hunter and it is a very affordable bullet that groups very well in my Dakota rifle and the bullet performance on our African animals is more than adequate.
    Sincerely
    Hans
