The planning for this trip started roughly 30 days after my 2018 trip with Gerrit at @Bos en Dal Safaris. I had such a great trip in 2018 which was my first trip I became addicted to Africa! Dates were set for May 27th arrival and departure for June 7th 2019. During the planning I originally was going to concentrate on more plains game and finish my Spiral Slam. I had two friends that were going to accompany me for there first time trip to Africa. After Gerrit posted up his Buffalo Special I switched gears and decided on a Buffalo/Plains game trip. My friends would be plains game hunting. Two days before departure one of them had to drop out due to family issues. Monday May 27th arrived and myself and Bo were off to Houston for flight to Atlanta and DL 200 to Johannesburg. The flight was uneventful and boring as usual. We arrived around 5:30 pm on the 28th and Riflepermits meet and greet got us thru Immigration and SAPS quickly. Gerrit,Frikkie and Louie were waiting for us when we entered the main hall. We were off for the 2 hour or so drive to camp. When we arrived at camp we were greeted by staff and a delicious dinner and drinks by the fire. We got settled in to our rooms and off to bed. Day One to follow!
