    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.
