    I. Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello! Welcome to my sixth FAQ that I've made. Man, it's been quite some time 
    since I made one of these. This guide is for Cabela's African Safari for PS2.
    This Cabela's title takes a different direction from the other Cabela's titles
    in that you only hunt from the 3rd person point of view. It is somewhat linear,
    but isn't that bad. As well as African big game, you also have the opportunity
    to hunt for birds, and has a simple multiplayer feature as well. I hope my 
    guide will help fellow Cabela's fans out, and other such things. Good Luck!

    Day 1
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Wing Hunt - Hunt Turtle Doves in the Palm Forest!
    
    Just aim for the birds that fly out. Fire when your sights turn red. A simple
    enough task.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Regular Hunt - Hunt 3 Impala near the Karoo Plateau!
    
    It is best to use the .270 Rifle for this hunt. Look for the green dots on your
    radar. That is your target for the level. Try looking for the Impala on the 
    east from where you start. I found them near a small lake.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Tracking Hunt - Track and Hunt 1 Kudu! (Vaal River)
    
    Look for all the Kudu tracks - Red bugs will be flying all around the locations
    of the tracks. When you have found them all, the Kudu will apear and you can
    then hunt it. The .338 Rifle is the best weapon for this hunt.
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    Day 2
    
    5000 Points - .44 Custom Unlocked
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Regular Hunt - Hunt 4 Springbok near the Karoo Plateau!
    
    The hunt starts out with a herd of Springbok running all around you. Fire 
    away! The .243 Rifle is the best choice for this hunt.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Regular Hunt - Hunt 4 Duikers along the Vaal River!
    
    The .243 is the best gun for this hunt. Try looking for the duikers NE from
    where you start off.
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    Day 3
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Herd Hunt - Hunt 5 Black Wildebeests on the Northern Cape Plains!

    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    Trophy Hunt - Hunt 1 Trophy Rhino near the Karoo Plateau!
    
    The best Rifle for this hunt is the .505 Rifle. Look for the largest and 
    darkest of the Rhinos - that's the trophy legend. I found mine by rounding the 
    corner you first start off at, then making a right without distracting the 
    first two Rhinos. Continue until you can sneak up on the resting Trophy Legend
    Rhino. (Make sure that you changed to the .505 before firing!)
