I'm a semi retired educator and a lifelong hunter. I have been dreaming about hunting in Africa since I was 14 reading Outdoor Life and other hunting magazines. I have watched many videos and talked to a few hunters at gun shows. I'm 67 and still in good shape so I need to go soon while I am still active. As in this year or next and Namibia is my destination. Yesterday I read and thoroughly enjoyed a Canadian hunter's experience and detailed writings about his hunt. This excited me even more and thus I joined this fine forum.

Welcome aboard Mekis, If you continue reading about the hunts other AH members are experiencing you will soon become infected by a condition for which there is only one known cure. The only piece of advise that I have to offer is don't wait too long to bite the bullet. It is a little late but not impossible to book a safari for this year, but you are right on schedule for a trip in 2019. AH is the best site on the web to help you plan your "hunt of a lifetime."

Hi,
I remembered you mentioned a dealer in Gauteng regarding a Rigby 350? May I ask who that is? I’m a collector of rigby rifles. Many thanks. John
I am alive and trying to find some hard-to-find reloading dies in .475 #2 (not Jeffreys)
Hi, I’m going on a Leopard & Lion hunt, I’m taking my 338 Blaser mag loaded with 225gr Nosler Accubond moving at 2850ft/s. Will the Nosler Accubond be an excellent bullet on this leopard & lion? Thanks
