Hello! I've been checking the site regularly for a few years now and thought I might as well get in on the fun myself. Currently saving and planning to take my first safari in the next couple years, and hoping to gain some insight from everyone's experiences.
Welcome to AH! First trip planning should be fun, enjoy it!
Good day sir @Cls.44
Welcome to AH forum.

Starting to plan your first safari is always exciting and I believe that you’ll find all the necessary information regarding your planning right here on the forum.

And if you feel need to talk with an Outfitter just to get more details ( pricing, lodging and so on ) feel free to get in contact with us @DERIAN KOEKEMOER SAFARIS we will gladly assist you were we can.

Kind regards

Welcome to AH @cls
You are welcome to stop by if you are ever passing through Mansfield, Ohio. Call 419 961-6900 a few days in advance and we will set up a mutually convenient time for a visit. I would suggest mid-morning so I can buy lunch afterwards. Please note, the address on the website is not where you would go as we try to fly under the radar so we do not attract any unwanted visitors.
Welcome to AH
Welcome, you are in the right place. I am in the same position as you, planning and getting ready for the first one. You will learn so much from everyone's experience and I promise you, no question is too dumb. I have asked a few and everyone has been very respectful.

Good luck
