    Welcome aboard Jim K. What are you planning to hunt? Will you be taking your own rifle(s)?

    Jim K, I have taken my 35 Whelen to Africa twice. The first time as the larger rifle for PG like Kudu, Gemsbuck, Waterbuck & Wildebeest. I also wound up taking a cull female Eland. The second trip it was the smaller rifle used on Nyala and Sable. Those animals are quite a bit larger than our White tails. Correct shot placement will be required. There is a small paperback titled "The Perfect Shot Mini Edition for Africa II" that will prove invaluable. They are relatively cheap under $20.00.

    Good cartridges all around and will be a good hunt. Will you both be shooting off of sticks? Good luck and don't forget to practice. :)
