    I just returned from a 7 day hunt with WWB Safari's. It was an amazing experience and more than I could have expected. This was my first time hunting in Africa and every aspect was beyond my expectations. I took a Blesbuck, Gemsbuck, Impala and Warthog. I can't wait to return and hunt with this outfit again. Logistics were laid out in detail prior to trip by WWB which made it very easy. All of my many questions were responded to quickly before leaving. Lodging, food and daily laundry/cleaning was more than I could have hoped for. I brought four sets of clothes and that was two more than needed. I was part of a group of four that went from the states. We hunted in pairs assigned to a PH and tracker. Our PH, Whitey, was one of the most interesting people I have every talked to. His professionalism was top notch. Whitey and our tracker/skinner, Daniel, put us on our animals very quickly and did not pressure us to shoot if not 100% comfortable with the shot or specific animal we were taking. It was a relaxing, yet efficient hunt. Had I wanted to (afforded to), I could have taken many many more species. I learned a lot from Whitey, and to say he went above and beyond in all aspects in an understatement. In addition to professional hunter and outdoorsman, he should include professional photographer to his resume in my opinion. We took over 500 high quality pictures and a significant portion was his doing. I will look back at them for the rest of my life and appreciate how he and WWB captured this experience. I highly recommend this outfit and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

    First of all, WELCOME TO AH!
    Congrats on your first safari. It sounds like you had a great time.
    Please add some pics of your trophies and camp. What guns and bullets did you use?
    Have you begun to plan safari number two? What country? What critters?
