This will be my first trip to South Africa, I have been following on AH for awhile now and ask any for any advise the seasoned hunters may have. I have had dreams of going for over two years now and had been planning on a 2019 or 2020. But thanks to Gerrit with Bos en Dal Safaris it has been pushed to June of 2018 !!! I won a trip from them on their Facebook Page!!! I don’t even have a Passport! So here are what i think priorities may be and any input would be greatly appreciated. 1. Start Passport process this week. 2. Airline Tickets. Will call Lori at Travel Express from what I have learned on AH 3. Finalize dates depending on airline flights. 4. U.S. Customs forms ( taking my own rifle) 5. SAPs paper work. Questions I can think of being a first timer and going it alone. Do I need to get help for rifle permits and paper work? From a service like Rifle Permits? Do I need medical like Global Rescue? Travel Insurance? I know i will have more questions. Any help or advise will be appreciated. So excited don’t really know where to start or what to do.
