Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it 9/13

July 19, 2018

Africa is a value. Once you get there, it is not overly expensive to be there. Hunting camps vary greatly depending on where you are and what you want to hunt. That being said, hunting 4-5 head of plains game is often cheaper than a guided elk hunt here in the US. That is somewhere […]

Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it 8/13

July 18, 2018

A few general reasons: Africa is an adventure.  You never know what is around the next corner when you are in Africa. I go to hunt, but this is a plus for the photographer as well. Not knowing what the hunting gods (or photography gods) are going to reveal to you on any given day […]

Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it 7/13

July 17, 2018

The love of nature and being immersed in her wilds is another reason I enjoy Africa. The brilliance of the sun breaking over the horizon as you glass for game in the morning is a special time. I can liken it to being in a cathedral. It is quiet, peaceful, and the grandeur is breathtaking. […]

Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it 6/13

July 16, 2018

Chasing game in Africa is unlike anything I have experienced anywhere else. Whether it is with a rifle or camera, it is an adventure.

Speaking of locals, the people I have met over there ARE the reason I keep going back. I can hunt anywhere, but the friends I made when I started hunting Africa all those many years ago are the best. I put my life in their capable hands time and time again. I trust them completely. […]

July 10, 2018

Reason 3/13 Another thing I am fond of are the tented camps. I like the luxury of the lodges and chalets but staying in a luxury tent is high on my list as well. What is a luxury tent, you ask? How does hot and cold running water sound? Ensuite toilets and shower are there too. […]

July 9, 2018

Reason 2/13 The concerto of sounds and the darkness of the night are a reminder of the uncertainty of what can happen in Africa. Not knowing what is just beyond the light sets one’s sense on high alert. Is there something waiting to take a bite out of me or stomp me into a gooey […]

Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it

July 8, 2018

As I was batching it one weekend, it is of little wonder that my mind tended to wander from time to time. On one such occurrence I found myself daydreaming about my upcoming trip to the Caprivi Strip in September. My mind quickly changed gears from the itinerary to why I was looking forward to […]

A response to the African hunting trophy ban. My personal thoughts. Part 4

December 5, 2017

Last thing I want to mention and one of the things I want folks to think about is who the heck are we (Americans) that we think we can tell people in another country how to live and what they can do or not do with their animals within their borders. What would you do […]
