At our last reunion (New River '09) a few of us expressed interest in doing a safari in Africa. If any are truly interested in going to rifle hunt or photo safari in Africa I can assist you in all aspects pertaining to travel and hunting. Also, if there is enough interested in going then I can accompany a small party from beginning to end of their safari. My participation will be of my own expense and I do not receive any compensation of any sort from the safari provider. I just enjoy going to Africa.
If you are interested, you can contact me directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at anytime. I'd be glad to answer any questions. Also, you might want to contact Bert Goodfallow, who has done a couple of safaris in South Africa, and ask him of his interesting experiences there.
Hunt: Eur 2920 = US$ 3800 (7days, 3 trophies, full board for 1 hunter and 1 guest) Air fare: US$ 1400.00 to 1800.00 from the West Coast, less from the East Coast.
- so the minimum it'll cost will be US$ 5200.00 for one hunter and US$ 6800.00 for one hunter and one non-hunting guest. That includes air fare.
What is included in the hunt?
3 trophy animals (1 Greater Kudu or 1 Blue Wildebeest, 1 Oryx or 1 Red Hartebeest, and 1 Warthog). Also 1 Blackbacked Jackal may be taken free if the skin is not exported. Additional animals may be taken for the added trophy fees.
Full accomodations, meals, and drinks for 7 hunting days.
Full service of professional hunter, trackers, and skinners.
Preparation of trophies to be sent to the taxidermist.
Transportation to and from the international airport and the hunting concessions.
Assistance with the immigration and customs regulations and procedures.
Assistance with touring arrangements.
Let me know if you have any questions or even have the slightest possibility of going on safari in Africa.
