Your First African Safari


Craig Boddington moderates a blue-ribbon panel discussion that will assist you in planning that all-important first safari!  This is SCI’s longest-running seminar, now in its 23rd year, and attendees “shopping” for their first safari will find it invaluable!
Ludo Wurfbain will discuss books and videos that will help you prepare; Beverly Wunderlich will talk about paperwork and nuts and bolts and advantages to using an agent; Jack Atcheson, Jr. will cover trophy care and taxidermy; Johan Calitz will offer advice on what you should expect from your outfitter and PH…and what they should expect from you! Craig Boddington will discuss guns and loads, packing tips, and shooting tips.
If you’re looking for your first safari, don’t miss this one!  And if you’re a veteran looking for new hunting grounds, join in!
