So I was wanting to pick the brains of folk on here of who is best to book a safari with? I've been looking into this for years and am almost at the stage of saying "stuff it" and just getting it booked.
Do most folk go for package deals? I've got a rough idea of what I want:kudu, Impala, zebra,(is that weird?) and possibly something else . Generally these deals never seem to tick all the boxes.
I would probably get the taxidermy done here. Am I correct in saying your about the same again to get the animal to the uk as you are to shoot it even if it's just caped,(or packed).
Also I've seen videos of folk using a .270 to good effect but am I realistically going to need something bigger? I'm good to about 250 yards but I feel like practicing beyond this would be essential too?
so many variables but I'd like to try and get the ball rolling. Realistically I'd like to have whatever I shot shoulder mounted or on a pedestal because a bleached skull doesn't quite do it for me. Costs will be the biggest issue. The trophy prices on paper seem okay but I imagine everything doubles of not triples by the time it gets to your wall.
