My Name is Jerry Jacques.

 

A full time professional guide and bush pilot in Alaska for 39 years.

Our family owns a Bush Flying Safari/Guide Service and a Remote Lodge in Alaska.. We cater to photographers, adventure travelers, fly fishermen and aviation buffs. I have listed all the details of the lodge in my profile.

 

I was referred to this sight by Spalding and am enjoying reading posts on Africa. In the past I have made 7 month long safari trips to southern Africa and loved every day of the 7 months. With family and business obligations my last safari was over 20 years ago.

 

My wife with our 2 youngest kids are planning a self drive photo safari in Kruger for late March 2017. We are enjoying all the info available on this sight and it is helping us plan our trip. My kids are reading things here and seeing photos that are getting them excited.

 

I want to thank everyone that has contributed all the valuable trip reports and information.

@Alaska Grizzly Safaris welcome! You live in a beautiful place. I have only visited once, but hope to go back!  We have some trip reports on Alaska too, but you may have found those already.  They are sprinkled in here amongst other reports from non-Africa destinations http://safaritalk.ne.../219-worldwide/

@Alaska Grizzly Safaris I hope that you enjoy your safari to Kruger National Park.Can you explain to me why Canada allows both indigenous people and American hunters to shoot polar bears? What's truly vile is that the United States allows their carcasses to be imported.  I hope that you find this site to be as invaluable as I have. I have to say that it has literally changed my life for the better.\

@Alaska Grizzly Safaris welcome! Ahhh, so cold in Alaska as the song goes. What a beautiful part of the world it is. I had the good fortune to find myself there many moons ago and I'm possibly the only tourist to spend 10 nights in Alaska and not see a single Moose! I did see one of my top 5 wildlife encounters of all time in AK though; a pod of Beluga Whales cruising up the Turnigan Arm at sunset one day. Amazing, just breathtaking and I hope to make it back that way one day to see a few bears...maybe even a moose :-)

Hello and welcome!  I'm a longtime lurker and recently started planning a trip for next year.  SafariTalk is a great group of people.

 

Alaska has long been on my bucket list; my hubby's back could definitely survive a flight to Alaska (alas, 24 hours to Africa is out of the question for him.)

Thanks every one for the warm welcome 

 

Optig    Sorry I do not have a good answer for you.

 

What I can tell you is that my wife and I will not allow hunting from our lodge and the Fly fishing we do for trout is all catch and release. 

 

Jerry
