One trip that is still on my bucket list is a photo safari to South Africa.
So I visited the South Africa vendors in Outfitters Hall. It may never happen, but one can dream – and to make a dream happen we must sometimes take the first step. 🙂
Some of the safari vendors interested me, others not so much.
After Jim Shockey’s program, I asked Cerwin if he wanted to visit some of the South African vendors – and dream with me.
In between visiting South Africa vendors, we stopped to admire several taxidermist displays.
Just about the time I thought we had visited every safari vendor, we came upon this one – Bosbok Safaris.
What a delight to meet Phil and Kate de Koch.
We know the Wagners and Martins who hunted and did photo safaris with them, and thought it would be fun to find the outfitter they used – but didn’t really expect they would be here.
They showed us lots of pictures of the Wagner family’s visit last year – and even had 2017 calendars for us to take to John and Joyce. The calendars featured their children and grandchildren who had successful hunts.
Now we know where to go for a safari in South Africa – but we are still in the dreaming stage. 🙂
