The search begins. Look in the hunting deals history and you will find what you'll need.
There are Buffalo in RSA, may not be a real traditional camp though.

Namibia - on the strip a few good cape buffalo are taken
Botswana - a few areas is they are open for hunting.
so take your pick.
What plains game are you looking for.
With a cape buffalo as your primary target what other animals will be you be interested in going after.
Also will you Wife and or son be hunting or observing? (camera men for your safari)
