Ok, so this is a little overdue. I've been swamped at work and I've been putting this off for a while, but I'm sitting in an airport waiting so it's as good a time as any to start. We originally won this hunt during a Friends of the NRA dinner in April of 2017 on a silent auction. After discussing options with a local US rep and the outfitter we picked our time and began the wait. Outfitter: Global Safaris PH: Ronald Barnard Location: Limpopo Province, near Thabazimbi Species Taken: Blue Wildebeest, Blesbok, Impala, Gemsbok, Kudu, Zebra, Waterbuck, Nyala, Black Impala, (Warthog) Species Seen: Above plus Giraffe, Golden Wildebeest, Sable, Duiker, Steinbuck, Vervet monkeys, Baboons, Red Hartebeest, Eland, Jackal, Bushbuck, Ostrich, Reedbuck, Cape Buffalo Travel Day(s) We were flying out of DFW, so the day prior I decide to do a varmint competition. Stayed up all night - we didn't have much luck, got our 5 grey fox but no bobcat which was the primary goal. Anyways, I got a couple hours sleep and off we drive to Ft Worth. Up the next morning and head to the airport. We flew Emirates, and the check in was super easy. You do have some paperwork to get done ahead of time, but @Travel Express will take care of all of that for you. Jennifer booked everything for us and it was well worth it!! Back to check in - they spotted me as I walked up, said right this way, and the supervisor had all my paperwork printed out and ready to go. They escorted me to security for a quick check, locks back on and away we go. Flights were great, really good service and food, excellent entertainment, etc. Little longer travel time than Delta, but I would use them again. We arrive and get through customs no issue, had an airport employee come up and let me know they had gotten my rifle already and it was waiting for me at the SAPS office (I was the only hunter and had my camo backpack on). Called Africa Sky as I was a little confused on the airport layout, and thought they might be waiting by baggage claim after customs. Got that situated and we exit to the arrival hall to be greeted by Gilbert. We breeze through SAPS after a quick serial number check, and head to the lodge. Upon checking in, we grab a drink and head the room to eat as they had made us each a plate since we missed dinner (arrived around 10pm). We try to get some sleep and manage a few hours anyways. Up the next morning for some wonderful breakfast and wait for our PH Ronald to pick us up about 9am.
