ZIMBABWE: ZimAfrica Hunting Elephants and Buffalo with 500 Jeff and 416 Rigby
Just returned from my 3rd safari in Africa. This time with ZimAfrica Operated by Rebecca Steyn And Wayne Jardine
I have also hunting in Europe, Alaska, Argentina and New Zealand. But I would have to say the best hunt I ever had was this one. I took a CZ 550 in 500 Jeffery for elephants and a 416 Rigby for buffalo and every thing else. My PH Raphael was a native to the area and new the region and people very well. He took good care of me and I was able to shoot 2 bull elephants, a nice buffalo and a nice bull giraffe along with other game on a 10 day hunt. The 500 Jeffery knocked both elephants down on the first shot although I fired follow up shots, the 416 Rigby did in the buffalo with a 400 gr Barnes X through the heart on a quartering shoot and a solid follow up, he ran 30 yards. ZimAfrica took care of all my special needs and provided me with a top notch hunt. I would recommend them to any one. I hunted in the north camp along the park border. The first elephant was on the contract and shot in thier area the second was a PAC elephant that had been raiding a village about 200 K from camp. The hunt was in July and tempature were great mid 70's in the day and mid 40's at night.
