Caprivi Strip Elephant / Buffalo Hunt
I just got back from a 16 day elephant / buffalo hunt in the Caprivi Strip with Classic Safaris. It was a tuff hunt as it seems the resident game populations were disturbed because of unusualy high flooding this year. At the out set I told Vaughn I would like to try for a above average elephant. We had several oportunities and were in a large heard at one point but passed on several good bulls looking for something better. I eventualy took a bull on day 15. Probably not the best bull I had seen but at that point I was happy to take him. We moved over to Kasika the next day and shot a very nice buffalo. The food was above average. I could go into more detail but suffice it to say it was a good hunt with a good PH. I try and keep in reasonable shape for a guy that is 55 years old and I didnt have any problems. I have hunted africa 8 times now in places like Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, etc. I would hunt with Vaughan Fulton again in a heart beat. I read the post about the bad hunt with classic safaris. I cant say the hunter was wrong but I can say from my experience hunting with Vaughan that he himself is a good hunter and I believe him to be a honest man.
