Hi from the SW Rocky Mountains of Colorado - glad I found this sight which is very informative and friendly.I sure enjoyed my first S.African safari of 10 days in the Limpopo region near Botswana.I had a great time both there and in Capetown after the hunt.I was extremely successful in my safari objectives and a great Gemsbok harvest was a thrill in itself.Looking forward to learning from all the members
Hello all. New member also. Just returned from my first hunt in South Africa. Amazing experience for my entire family (wife and two teenage sons ). Been home 7 days and already planning next trip. Where is the best location to do an outfitter review ?
@JDS you can post under Hunt Reports. Welcome to AH.
@Mo Soudani and @Russel. G. Keith
Good evening Gentlemen,
I am currently in the UK and will be here until late August.
Please if there is any questions you have about hunting in South Africa I will gladly do my best to drop by, introduce myself and we can have a chat about hunting. Feel free to send a PM on here or email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to AH.
I would love to add the Roan antelope to my collection one day, but as you say the price is just too high for me for just one animal.
Johnny, thanks for your opinion regarding Roan. For me it's one of the most interesting and difficult game to hunt and then I mean it should be hunted in Zambia or eventually in Tanzania or the western Roan up in Cameroon or Benin... not a farmed one in RSA...
Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm just beginning my research into an African safari and plan to hunt in the next two years with my good friend. Both of us are Africa newbies. I've hunted North American big game, including elk and deer, but Africa is new to me. I'll be doing a bit of research here prior to booking with an outfitter and deciding where to go. So far, everything I've seen on this forum has been a great help. Thank you to all.
Welcome @Lrntolive to the forum. Planning a trip to Africa is half the fun and I am sure you will enjoy it as time goes on.
"Facta non Verba" I like that!
Please if there is anything we can help with please feel free to contact us or just ask any question and I am sure the guys on the forum will help.
All the best
Glad you like the family motto. Comes from my father's Scottish roots. That is the motto on our family Coat of Arms.
Trying to decide between Namibia or South Africa for a first safari. My hunting buddy is making it tough as he is only interested in one animal, kudu. I'm interested in a few more for my first trip; impala, springbok, blue wildebeest and maybe a warthog. That's my "first trip to Africa wishlist."
Hi thank you for letting me in.
I'm an ex Army officer who is now building rifles (offering some custom Mauser builds soon) and also a shooting instructor (rifle and shotgun).
I'm a keen game shot and stalker but a young family has slowed this a little.
As a teen young adult I spent time growing up in Africa so cut my teeth shooting there also luck to have traveled and shot in N America and Eastern Europe as well Germany and France whilst in the Army.
Great site...glad to be here.
Thank you for the welcome! Been a member now for a while, just not much of a chat room participant, I read them while searching for information.
My back ground; a USAF retiree, lived and hunted all over the western states including Alaska. Looking to go to Africa fairly soon, maybe in a year or so. A certified rifle loony and passionate handloader. Bow hunter as well but that has taken a back seat in the last several years. I live to hunt, and serve God, sometimes my hunting can tend to pull me away from Him, so I try to watch it. Look forward to looking around this site with more enthusiasm in preparation for my first Safari.
Hello all, just checking in for the first time. I have a hunt planned for Africa this coming July/Aug. Thought I would do some research before I arrive. What a great wealth of information.
Hi, Would like to hunt in Africa. This site recommended by friend ( who goes by FWB ). He asked me if I wanted to hunt in Africa, and I said that I think every hunter wants to go to Africa. Will get some info here...........Cris Kime
