I'm on day 9 of a 10 day safari and after 8 days of sunny 78 degree temperatures we got a morning of heavy wind and rain rolling through so I thought I'd take a moment and give a quick report. Travel: DAl 200 ATL-JNB. 14.5 hours. No drama. JNB: I have a large wheeled duffel bag that made it just fine through JNB to Kimberley airport. No issues. Saw lots of duffels including the ones they said not use going on the conveyors. Will see how it goes on return flights. I was supposed to fly to Bloemfontein but there is no security there to handle firearms at the moment. This occurred about 3-4 weeks ago. I found outat as I was checking in for my flight. Luckily I was able to contact my PH and coordinate for a Kimberley pick up and SAA express was great at handling the ticket changes. Check ahead if you are going through Bloemfontein. The Safari: I am hunting for the 3rd time with Ashley Hobson of Eastcape and Karoo Safaris. We are at their Karoo Lodge in the Northern Cape. Primary targets: Buffalo, Roan, Nyala, Waterbuck, Steenbuck, Warthog. Firearms: Blaser R8 Proffessional Success Monza w/ .375 H&H and .300 WSM barrels.
