    Welcome aboard Nolan. Judging from your introduction you've "fallen amongst a bunch of thieves" as John Wayne said in the movie In Harm's Way. This site is loaded with experienced guys and gals that have been there and done that. We were all "rookies" once so just ask away. You can get a lot of information from reading previous posts in the various forums. Sit back and enjoy the ride. BTW who did you book with and what will you be hunting?

    We booked with Bosveld Jacobs Safaris out of Limpopo. The list seems to grow the more I research. I am pretty set on the Spiral slam and the Springbuck slam if that is possible. the opportunistic list is Sable, Roan wildabeast. My wife wants to work on the tiny 10 so her list is for the little guys. all told 15 animals for 14 days of we connect on them
