2 questions. . . .
1. Any problem having bow, arrows and broadhead in London? (where is Barty?) We'll be staying two nights in London after the AFrica portion of the trip
2. We'll be spending a couple nights in Capetown. Anyone have recommendations for good hotels?
All I can tell you is you are going to have a blast! Looking forward to your stories & pics.
Seems to be lots fo places near East London, but not that many near Cape town...
Frenchman. . . No. We're hunting near Port Elizabeth with Crusader Safaris.
My wife and I are headed to Cape Town in April...similar circumstances. I ended up booking our hotel through hotels.com after staying on top of the booking rates every day for a couple months. I ended up getting a screaming deal at the Cape Town Lodge Hotel...but there were quite a few places down on the V&A Waterfront with decent prices...depending on how much you are willing to pay of course. Several were way out of this guy's price range, but several were in my wheel house.
We have 3 days of tours booked with African Sky in/around Cape Town...seamless bookings, payment methods and correspondence has been great with these folks.
Like you, we are also hunting in Port Elizabeth after spending some time in Cape Town.
Sorry haven't relied to this yet...Briefly, don't have assembled broadheads in your bow quiver and make sure archery equipment is labelled as exactly that; don't carry a locking blade knife in your pocket when out on the streets[3" non-locking blade or shorter is ok, ie Swiss army penknife].
Don't fly anywhere near Rotterdam with BHs [previous posts on Bowsite African forum will give more detail]
Good luck and good hunting
