Been back about a week from my first Africa hunt, my son and I spent 10 days at Nduna Safaris, had the time of our life, the 16 hours from Joberg back to Atl was tough.

I just got back from there less than 2 weeks ago! Check out the Trad Harvest thread to see all the critters Tim and I shot! Lammie will treat you right! Tell him and Allison that Bisch said hi!

You are about to have the time of your lives! I bet you will be planning your second trip over there before this hunt is over!!!!

Have fun and shoot straight!

Man we have a 2000.00 deposit with a place over there. And we just lost interest and quit making payments. Every time I see an Africa thread I think about how I could get my money back. But it is a non refundable deposit. Looking forward to your story and pics, maybe it will ignite that flame in me again.

My son and I just returned from 10 days bow hunting in South Africa, killed 12 animals all spot and stalk. The wildest, most alert, string jumping critters on earth, can't wait to go back. Hope the mood strikes you to go, might be the time of your life, was for us.

Wow. I used to feel the same way but if I dropped that much coin on the trip I would either go or try to get someone else to buy it out.

I'm applying for my passport so I can get a trip arranged in the next couple years.
