Hello and Greetings to all Conservation-minded folks out there. Just a little of what we have been up to over this past season. As most of you probably know, Southern Africa has been hit by a drought this year with just a little under half the normal rainfall in most of our game areas.
Still we were very happy to welcome all those who made it this side to share our wonderful wildlife and wild places.
First in April we were to welcome a group from Russia, mostly from the Moscow area. A great time had by all, but unfortunately no Leopard.
Next in May I was asked to head a promotional tour by Mercedes of South Africa show-casing their new 4x4 double cab trucks. It was a whirlwind tour with 9 vehicles including backup truck and 24 participants. Starting in Matobo National Park, then onto Hwange and finishing up in Victoria Falls. Lots of laughs and lots of driving testing out the new product.

This was followed by a family from France, a first trip to Africa, with Dad and the 3 boys hunting, and Mum doing the photos.
Next long-time friends, Jim and Jack, accompanied by the leader of the Do-Nothing Club, JJ from Alaska.
A 21-day affair from wounded Lion and Buffalo to catching the odd fish, and to see Pangolin and Anteater, what a treat! Some great old animals treated us to some serious testing.

From here I was to lead another tour this time to the SE part of the country and the Gonarezhou National Park.
Great to get young people out into the Bush and share with them a little of what we have the great privilege of having almost on our doorstep. Here on the Malilangwe Trust through the Quest programme, we expose young people to some of the bush, basic survival skills, team building and leadership.
And as the season comes to a close, we welcome the last group this time from Poland. Jan, Dereck, Dereck 2, Robert, Martin, and Jaeck, all good lads from the Krakow area in Poland. Myself and fellow PH, Wayne van den Burg, had lots of laughs, A Happy time with Happy Hunters, and yes, the odd bottle of Vodka and such.
We wish you all a most Wonderful Christmas and New Year, and look forward to seeing you soon. Now is time to start planning your next Safari.
Scott and Carolyn
