WACO, Texas - "Most of us are not like the hunters on the television hunting shows," author and safari hunter Kerry Thomas explains. "It is a very detailed business of planning and executing a hunt in South Africa." In his new book, Planning an African Safari: For The Everyday Working Man (published by Trafford Publishing), Thomas gives readers detailed information on planning their own African safari.
"For years I worked and saved, and saved and worked," Thomas explains. "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."
Within the pages of Planning an African Safari, Thomas takes readers by the hands and walks them through each step of the journey, from picking an outfitter to shipping their animals home. Readers are sure to feel empowered by the end and be more knowledgeable and confident knowing they have the tools to plan their own hunting trip.
"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."
