Planning an African Safari

ISBN: 9781466940598
Release Date: 2012-06
Genre: Travel

This book will give you detailed information on planning your safari. You will receive invaluable tips from picking an outfitter to shipping your animals' home. We even cover which seats to pick for your flight. For years I worked and saved, and saved and worked. I spent what felt like a lifetime waiting for the day that I might make my dream African safari come true. The information found here was gathered through my experiences in planning my two safaris over the past few years. As we all know the best way to learn about planning a trip like a safari is to talk to someone that has been there and done that. I would like for you to consider this book as your conversation with an old friend. Most of us are not like the hunters on the television hunting shows. In essence we are not paid personalities thus we must pay to play. It is a very detailed business of planning and executing a hunt in South Africa. I wanted to "un-muddy the waters" for those who've shared the same dream for a safari as I have for so many years, but didn't know where to start. With the information I am providing, I will help you to avoid the many pitfalls that plague so many hunters as well as the overlooked details that can turn a trip of a lifetime into a nightmare. I am living proof that a safari is attainable for the everyday working man.
