Hoping they will ease the travel restrictions. Talked to Bushmen Safaris last week, they are not sure when they will start to take clients.

Was scheduled to be there this past Sept 19th, but that got nixed. Will meet with my outfitter in Feb at the DSC show to see when he wants me to come, probably in Sept again hopefully.

African Arrow Safaris for Cape/Sable bowhunt.

Seems like flights with Delta are the way to go but there are not very many scheduled right now for my dates.
United Airlines has alot of flights going from Bush-IA to Newark-IA then direct you Johannesburg.
Anybody have reviews on using United to fly to Africa?

Those of you that I’ve already gotten their flights who are y’all using?

I'll probably be doing buff in 2021. Flew Emirates last time and was a good flight- just a little longer. I think the United flight is new unless you are missing a leg somewhere as Delta was the only American airline with non-stop to SA for a long time.

Went in Feb 2020 before this broke wide open, flew Qatar air and saved some money. Little longer flight time but $715 RT Houston to J’borg.
