    After about 8 months of dreaming, speaking with numerous outfitters from 3 countries over the phone, through email, and in person a decision has been made!

    A fellow Tarheel and I will be going to Zambia in July to pursue buffalo, hippo, croc, and a variety of plains game with Strang Middleton of Balla-Balla Safaris!

    Working on airline tickets now then the waiting game starts!!!

    Very excited about being able to hunt in Zambia....

    reedy0312, is your buddy an AH member? If not you should introduce him to the site. That way you won't have to do all the planning. LOL What day will you guys be leaving? Charlie, Toby458 and I are flying out of Atlanta on the 18th of July.
