Hello to everyone out there in the big wide world. It definitely would seem that Africa is being left behind!!!But I guess that is what makes the magic of visiting here, taking a step back in time for a short moment, before returning to the real. The world, of cars, fuel, internet etc, etc. It’s good to take some time out from all of that.
With that in mind we would like to thank all of those who visited us here on our continent, we continue to enjoy watching you take pleasure in our wildlife and guiding you to those experiences.
As well as Juan from Chile, all old hunting partners.
New World Record SCI
Next to follow was another Brad, from Alaska, on his quest for the elusive Leopard. After many baits we had a pair feeding and had the pleasure of seeing them coming in during the day, before Brad took the male - what a treat!
Brad was a hit with the kids.....
.....and the Leopard!
The Honeymoon couple of Laura and Enguerrand, I then had the pleasure of guiding in the Hwange park, seeing tons of Elephant and also Lions, so Happy Days! We wish you all the best for the future.
Fred with this Buffalo
Fred from Arizona was next on his mission to get a nice old Dagga Boy. Fred had hunted Africa previously and was now looking for the one!!! And look for him we did - after days of long tracking, eventually getting onto a group of 3 Bulls in the late afternoon. Getting a shot in was tough but Fred was up to the task, though unfortunately the hit was a little low and far back. We followed the little blood that there was till last light, realizing that this animal could be a problem in the morning.
Returning at first light, it was not long till we bumped the brute in the thick stuff, and he retired even further into the thickets along a small stream.
With guns loaded, fingers on safety catches, and mouths dry, we proceeded with upmost caution. A deep grunt, and the dramatic parting of the bush reveal our adversary, bent on killing us.
Tracker Gerald dived forward into the stream bank while Fred and I fired simultaneously stopping the charge.
Phwee…. That was close!!!
Our friend, Maria, came to visit for a short trip visiting the Falls and Falcon. Always good to see you and spend time together. Thanks so much for the Maple Syrup!
Shortly after that is was time to welcome Grant on a double Buffalo hunt, taking a 40” Buff early in the hunt, and then making an amazing shot on a nice old Bull on the last day. Grant was joined by his Dad, Joe, hunting with Brent Hein and Buddy Mike hunting with Andy Hunter.
.....and Bushbuck with Tracker Albert
Rafael and Alvero with their Hippo. Nice shot!!
And to end of the season a visit from our mates down under, Tom, Alison and Sandra from Australia on a photo shoot in the Hwange Park. No end of Elephant, Buffalo and Lions, and we also got to see a Leopard during the day - always a bonus.
Well that’s it, folks. All that remains to wish you all a very Blessed Christmas and New Year.
