    Default Howzit!

    Hi Guys!
    Lived and worked in the photographic & hunting safari business' in Zim; enviro & tourism in SA and even had a lil bit of a 4x4 business in Kenya. Now in the UK training to be a teacher. Really sad that the world is changing and the opportunities for adventure are diminishing at a breakneck pace!

    Hope to add to the pool of info found here and learn the odd thing or two along the way.

    Welcome to AH Bundu! I look forward to reading your posts. You've made a drastic move from the bush to the UK, are you looking at moving back to Africa to teach some day?

    Absolutely! We still have a home in Bulawayo and so try to spend a few weeks there every year (just to get our balance again), so we will be off again in July/august.

    Might even get some time in the bush - don't know about any hunting though - its getting a bit expensive (makes me appreciate how lucky I was in those golden years of 91-95!).

    Ultimately we hope to go back permanently in a few years - just gotta put some money behind us.

    Once you've lived in Africa, going back is always on your mind until you can return.

    Welcome Bundu. It's a big difference living in Zim versus England, but is Bulawayo still livable these days? I would love to hear more stories and updates from Zim.

    You flatter me! I am not and never have been a PH. I trained as a Learner Professional Hunter/Guide in Zimbabwe but never wrote my learner's. I just spent a couple of years working and living amongst Zimbabwe's hunting & guiding community.

    However I have never taken a trophy animal - so although I have assisted on several lion hunts, approached Buff and Ele on foot (and belly) in order to get into a good shooting position, done PAC on Elephant, tracked Rhino and caught crocs - I have always I've either hunted for the pot or for PAC (Problem Animal Control).

    However this is not where I got most of my bush experience - I actually worked as an anti-poaching scout for 12 months - living in the bush adjoining Hwange National Park (Gwayi Valley) - patrolling on foot using mobile fly-camps mainly in the pursuit of indigenous subsistence poachers and the occasional Zambian Rhino poacher. So I'm really a hunter with a small h not a capital H!

    And I've only ever used 3 calibres: .375, 30-06 and 12 gauge! So I am rather a poor excuse for a hunter...that's why I've come here to hunt vicariously!

    Thanks Bundu for the inside story of yours, and Man : its comendable you have experienced it allll what a rifle totting hunter on a 21 day safari will never , that is what is the real wild side of AFRICA and you have seen and dealt with the situation most precarious.

    And you used very fine calibers:::

    Thanks Again & Happy hunting
