Enjoy an afternoon of interactive dinner theater to benefit the Manheim Community Library. Join us on March 18 for big game adventure in British East Africa (Kenya) 1911. Guests will be enraptured with an enchanting four-course fete at the stately Mt. Hope Big Game Lodge. Rub elbows and swap stories with a few of the world’s greatest guides and hunters, perhaps even a celebrity or two? Prepare to stalk some of Africa’s most exotic creatures. These safaris are enjoyed equally by big game hunters and naturalists alike. Should you choose you might join one of our photographic expeditions. Capture the last of planet Earth’s wild magnificent monsters on film. You shall, most certainly, find yourself the envy of your social circle upon returning. Do not delay! Be the first of your friends to experience this extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime journey.
