.338 won't help for Africa

If you do get an opportunity for Africa, by all means TAKE IT!!!!

Great place and not really as expensive as you think especially compared to a nice elk hunt, etc in NA.

But, you don't need the .338 for plains game. Most of it is taken with 30-06 or 270. You can't use it for dangerous game (at least in South Africa). South Africa hunting laws require a .375 minimum for cape buffalo and the other dangerous critters.

BTW, you will see more game in RSA in the first few hours you hunt, than you will see in a lifetime of hunting in NA.
