    Just joined AH. thought I would stop by and say hello. Recently have booked my first hunting trip to South Africa. Trying to learn as much as possible about going over there and enjoying a great safari. I know that July 2013 is still a little ways off but really looking forward to it. Any helpful hints or things that you think I should know would be great. This is my first time leaving the USA on a hunting trip. Thanks Jerry
