    Default SOUTH AFRICA: Incredible Trip to RSA with Faun Africa

    Had an incredible hunt in March with Ken Du Plessis of Faun Africa. PH was Willem Vanrooyen. 10 day hunt 2 on 1, my friend killed a 15" wart hog, and incredable Blue Wildebeast a 31" Waterbuck, and a 16" Limpopo Bush buck. I harvested a 26" Impala, 54" Kudu,37" gemsbuck,16" Bushbuck, 17" Blesbuck, a nice Zebra,and a 15" wart hog. Camp was in the Limpopo province, near Steenbokpan. Only two if us in camp, staff was incredable, as was our PH, and Ken is just superb, ironing out all problems,as they arise. I am definitely going back for more hunting here, it was my first trip to Africa, but will NOT be my last. Pictures to follow soon.

    Congratulations for your hunt, bcarper.

    Did you go to the bar in Steenbokpan, I have fond memories of that place.

    Incredibly good pictures!!! I think I like the waterbuck the best! Though that warthog has great bottom tusks! And I don't have a beautiful Limpopo bushbuck either.
