I have not been very active during the last months, too busy in the bush... I am back home now for a few weeks and getting ready to go to CAR again..
I came across some unusual scenes of wildlife in Tanzania that I filmed and photographed.
THE WARTHOG FIGHT:
I was sitting by a waterhole, after an hour 57 warthogs were by the water !!! Too many!!! The big boars started to intimidate each other, dancing stiff on their legs, throwing dust and fight. When
Before going to the hunting season in Tanzania I wanted to share some pictures and videos from Africa...
I just spent 3 weeks in South Africa, enjoyed it.. We hunted elephant in Timbavati private game reserve open on the Kruger Park, great experience and I saw the biggest cape buffaloes ever !!! I was really impressed by the body size and the beautiful set of horns they get there.
I am not going to talk about the trouble in CAR, you all heard what is going on there. The only thing you should know is that we were the only safari company working this year and it is really a pity. I really hope that most of them will come back next year.
I saw many Bongos this year. We had 50 trail cam in the bush and of course there is a lots of pictures of Bongos (coming soon).
This is a video I want to share with you. It shows the buffalo from that eastern corner of CAR and how they come, sometime very close (3/4 meters), when I call them in. It is an easy shot if you stand still until the last moment.... I hope you will enjoy it and I am waiting for your questions....
Here are somes trophies.
Elephant hunt in Tanzania
A Good Elephant from the Selous in Tanzania.
Beginning of September, Risto from Finland was coming for Elephant. We were hunting a very nice block in the south of the Selous game reserve where the dry Luhaniandu River meets the running water of the Luxegu River. Elephants, buffaloes, hippopotamus and lions are really plentiful. One part of
Record Buffalo Hunted in Benin
My friend from Benin, Patrick Martin sent me the picture of the biggest buffalo shot since 1974!!!!!! 36 inch wide, should be the new number 1 SCI and Rowland Ward.
A beautiful old bull with nice worn down horns, amazing because after 9 years of hard hunting there the biggest I shot was 32 inch.
Zambia offers hunting in the classical sense, vast open wilderness concessions where Africa's large beasts wander freely, pretty much as they did 100 years ago.
At first glance Zambia is expensive, as are all the other classical hunting destinations, which makes your choice of hunting area, safari operator and PH of critical importance. You see, although Zambia offers hunting in the true sense, not all hunting areas are created equally as some have been afforded more protection from
Who made a double on BUFFALO ????
Any stories to share?
I was fortunate to make a double myself and with hunters in 3 countries, TANZANIA, BENIN and CENTRAL AFRICA.
Nice double on Buffaloes in CAR
I hunted 4 species already (see pictures), in Tanzania and Zimbabwe for cape buffalo, Central Africa for northwestern buffalo, Benin for savanna buffalo and Ivory coast for dwarf forest buffalo.... one is missing, nile buffalo from Ethiopia... The hunting method is the same, tracking... They all come to the call. Only the biotope is different. All are great to hunt and all can be dangerous !!!!
What do you think about ??
