In short, it has been a spectacular season.  First and foremost I just want to say thank you to the team of professionals behind the camera and editing screens that have made our production possible. The cameramen who stand firm often in the face of chaos and danger, and the countless hours of film capture our editing teams spend at the screen all result in our weekly effort to provide the thrill, adventure, and danger that is safari.


Getting a little dusty!

I wish to say a special Thank You to our sponsors. They are part of the Safari Classic family, and without their support we could not do what we do. These companies are leaders in their respective fields, and we are grateful that they choose our program to reach out to their consumer customers. The new Tracks Across Africa look and feel has been getting excellent feedback, and I am excited as we start to edit and create our 2013 safari season for OUTDOOR CHANNEL.

Our Highlights include Hector Carbajals Botswana tusker , one of the last safaris to go through the Okavango delta. Hector made us all proud, taking the biggest Botswana elephant bull in the country for 2012 with me. That is no small feat in a country with the highest average and a quota of in excess of 500 bulls – Well done hector! I might add that cameraman Simon Elton captured the moment superbly, and it will become a truly memorable episode of Tracks Across Africa.

More than anything for me personally, this year was a year to highlight just how important hunters dollars are to wildlife in the third world. Our facebook page has received a great fan response, and I have tried my best between long hunting days to keep everyone up on what we are up to on location around Africa.

This makes it sound like its all about me but let me just say I have the easiest part of the job. It’s the cameramen who stand firm in the face of danger and adverse conditions who bring home the magic. At that point our producers the editors work their magic to give the final product the look and feel that Tracks Across Africa is known for. It is a team effort, and I am so proud to be a member of such a talented group of professionals.
