Hello and thank you for accepting me on here. Me and my wife will be coming to South Africa in August for our first hunting trip to Africa. We will also be returning in 2020 with our son and daughter-in-law. We are very excited for our trip and would like any pointers on what not to forget. Thank you

Welcome aboard Heath Johnson. Take a look at some of the packing lists, most are pretty complete. The problem comes more from over packing rather than not packing enough. Get a one month international call plan for your phone, use Rifle Permits to assist with importation, their VIP service is well worth the cost unless you enjoy standing in lines. Practice shooting off sticks a lot. What outfitter are you going with? What animals are you planning to hunt?

Welcome to our forum Heath. You and the wife will love it there. If you are going this August, you are most likely already locked in! Good Luck!

Going with Stanley Pieterse Safaris, this trip is more for my wife than me. She has always wanted to hunt Africa. She has a good list of animals she wants. (Good thing we will be spending 20 days with Stanley) I'm going to try and get a Croc if time permits.

Welcome, 20 days will be awesome and more than enough time time to fill your wish lists ! One of the biggest mistakes people make is going on a five day hunt with arrival and departure days making parts of 7 days. The flights are a big part of the expense so 2-3 weeks is minimum for me.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

im happy to do these deals for 2021

i will knock off 10% off each deal if you take 2 so $18000 per package

look forward to your response

regards
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
