    Default Base Camp- What's It Look Like When PH's aren't guiding

    I was curious if any PHs had pics or could describe the set up they employ for their base camp when they're not out with clients, but are hunting recreationally. I'm going to take a wild guess that it doesn't involve a safari train and that your set up would be much more simple. I'm curious to know more about the PHs side of hunting in today's Africa as opposed to what its like for the people that hire them.

    Hi Lazzyfair

    Here are some pictures of us just hanging out and having fun with friends!

    As with most operations it is not all hunting we have to upgrade facilities,we are largely adding new chalets but our setup in camp does not change much since the structure's are there and the camp staff have to do routine maintenance and of course there is a bit of time just to hunt for yourself.

    These are great Louis! I wouldn't have ever imagined a pic like that first one; just jeans and shorts, taking a stroll like that.
