Great Hunt with Ibamba Safaris - South Africa
All, just got back about two weeks ago from my first hunt in RSA. Sorry for the delay in my report, but this was coupled with a move from Alaska to Arizona and trying to get our house settled down here. Boy is it HOT down here!!! Anyway, my father and I had a great hunt with Ibamba Safaris. While this was our first safari, we were VERY impressed with our hosts. Ibamba Safaris is definitely a first rate company and by day 2 of our 7 day, we were both already planning our return trip. The details were for the Safari were a 2 person/7 day hunt in the Limpopo area with our choice of an Impala, Blesbok or Warthog and a Jackal. I was on a Bow/Rifle combo (PSE/6.5 Creedmoor) with my father using rifle only (300 Win Mag). Between the two of us, we took 2 Blue Wildebeests (Both Rifle, 300 Win Mag), 2 Impala Rams (Bow/Rifle), 2 Blesboks (Bow/Rifle), 1 Warthog (Rifle 300 Win Mag), 1 Bushpig (6.5), 1 Impala Ewe (6.5), 1 Kudu (Bow). We did not really hunt the Jackal, but I did miss a shot at one, running away at about 175 yards. Either way, we had a great time, and I cannot wait to bring my daughter back with me next time. She really wants to shoot a Zebra and maybe a Warthog.
First, I want to thank everyone here on Africa Hunting for the great information that you were able to provide me. Because of the forums and PMs, I think we were well prepared for the trip. Everything for getting row 31 from ATL to Joburg (Lots of extra leg room), to using a Meet and Greet Company when we arrived (We could have done it alone, but the $$ spent was well worth it), and the right stuff to pack (we only took 3 sets of cloths each, and that was just about the right amount), and I could go on.
So, I have attached the pictures of some of my animals (Kudu, Blue, Bushpig) and my father's (Blue, Blesbok, Impala). Enjoy.
