From my first safari in RSA. I hunted in the Free State by Potchefstroom and North West by Rustenburg. I had a great time. I hunted with Wild Footprint Safaris (Rustenburg) and will definitely hunt with them again.

No time right now for full story and all pics, but here is a pic of the waterbuck I shot on the 4th day of the hunt.

I will also say I had a good experience flying Delta. I flew from Kansas City to Atlanta to J-burg. Same on the way back. All personell were very accomodating in checking my rifle case and other luggage.

The BEST part I can say about Delta is that we DID NOT have to stop in Dakar to refuel. It was non-stop both ways from Atlanta to J-burg.

I'm about wore slick right now so will get the other stuff posted when I have time.

Tarina sent me an email, told me you got a nice Waterbuck. Looks like the CZ .375 H&H in the picture. I think I will take the Delta flight next time. Don't want to stop in Dakar again.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
