I am new to this forum and have never been to Africa. We do however have tickets and Itinerary in hand for a trip to Dar in January. I am going to interview for a Job in Dar and the whole family is going for a nearly three week trip. That is my son (Now 4 and 1/2) on my avatar. If all goes well we will be moving back just as soon as we can part company with a bunch of stuff that isn't worth moving to Dar and say goodbye to family. I have already learned a great deal about hunting in Africa from reading posts on this site and hope to gain more knowledge of hunting opportunities for resident aliens.
Hope everyone has a very Happy New Year in 2010 wherever the New Year finds you.

Welcome to AH ECHIV! Sounds like you've got quite an adventure ahead of you. I personally think that when children have the opportunity to experience living abroad that it expands their horizons and benefits them later in life. i hope that everything works out for you and that you're able to make this big move happen! I can assure you that the hunting alone will make it worthwhile... Keep us posted.

Welcome ECHIV that sounds so exciting! Good Luck on your trip I hope everything works out for you and your family. I imagine that Tanzania is the ultimate African country for an avid huinter, what an awesome opportunity!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. The family and I will be arriving in Dar on January 15 for a 2.5 week visit. If all goes well and as anticipated we will return soon with our resident visa and hopefully a MUCH longer stay.

Moving to Dar

Just found out Sunday I got a job and we are moving to Dar. Will be in Dar March 30 on a 3 year contract which can be renewed. Hope to be there for a long while.

Welcome

Welcome to AH ECHIV

Congratulations and good luck with your new job!

Nice to see an upcoming hunter and fisherman on your lap. Is that a fish your son is holding up?

Neil, yes it is. He caught that 11.5 inch redear sunfish a couple of years ago. He really likes fishing and wants to start hunting. He will be five in may so we will have to wait a few years on that one.

Wow, nice fish. Well done for exposing your son to fishing and hunting at such a young age. He will thank you one day.

Niel,
Thanks, He has already caught Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Bluegills, Redears, lots of other sunnies. He already thanks me. His first fish was a Crappie that was 13.5 inches long. It weighed about .75 Kilos. Very Tasty.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
