    Default ZIMBABWE: Just got back from Zim

    Just got back from Zim with my family last night. We had a fantastic hunt! I took an Impala, Waterbuck, Wildebeast, Kudu, Eland, and a Cape Buffalo. My eight year old son took a Genet Cat with a crossbow and a nice Impala with a 22 Hornet. My twelve year old son took a Warthog and a impala. Wonderful time great hunt!

    It's great you got to take your family along. That is a massive old eland, congratulations.

    Very glad to hear it worked out well. Hopefully you and your family fell in love with Africa. Did you get to the falls?

    Louis- Yes, thank you. We are trying to figure a way back now. Still have some bills to pay off on this trip first but we want to put a plan together.
    Rastaman-Yes we flew in to Victoria Falls for a very short stay there before hiring a driver to take us to Bulawayo. The Falls are magnificent! Even at the end of the dry season they were amazing. Well worth the effort to see them! Zimbabwe is a beautiful country. It is a shame what has happened to the people there and the economy.
    Jaustin-Seeing my kids hunt was exciting for me! It was also nice to have someone to share the success and experience with. Everyone said the Eland was big. This was my first trip so I am still taking in what happened. It is a Livingston Eland and we did not have a tape measure, but we guesstimated his horns to be around 30".

    Does anyone know anything about Waterbucks? I am told the Waterbuck I took was a really nice trophy as well.

    Sesstoppleman- Wayne Jardein and Shayne Sissons were our PH's.

    Hi Mcdomelr

    First of all it would largely depend on the trophy quality in the area this might be a very nice waterbuck for the area.

    Second the trophy’s beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if you worked for him witch I am sure you did you should be very happy!

    Sharing the experience with your kids must have been special and will no doubt be a memory that you will hold deer to your hart for years to come.

    Congratulations on a very successful first African Safari. It had to be even more special being able to share it with your family and having them actually participate in the hunting.

    What great memories you've created with your family! Our "first" safari was also near Bulawayo and our son was 9 at the time. Congratulations!
