Just discovered this site . Amazing amounts of information, exactly what I was looking for. 56 years old looking for info to plan my first trip to Africa. Live in Silverton, Or. USA. My wife will be along and possibly son and friend (s). Cape Buffalo first priority and plains game. Looking for area with largest Cape Buffalo and a traditional type camp. Budget will be important, but this is one of the big items left on my bucket list.

Welcome to AH.
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.
Louis (Sprial Horn), Jacques (Hartzview), Chris (CT Safaris), Kemp (Leeukop), Jaco (Kwalata), Theo (Skinafrica), etc.
Karl (ndumo), Jerome (Ozondjahe) in Namibia

Welcome to AH.
There are pockets of good Cape Buffalo in many countries.
Tanzania some of the biggest.
Mozambique some great head come from there also
Zambia - again some quality heads from areas.
Zimbabwe - some good areas and ranches for nice cape buffalo.
south Africa - another spot to look.
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)
Brickburn has listed a few to check out, however we have others on here also available and will do a good job. Just check.James Grage - New Mexico

welcome to AH. i will say that after your first trip to africa your bucket will probably spring leaks, and whatever was in there will be replaced by more trips to you know where.........
