I'm a proud dad-- but one with a big obligation now. Told my son that if he prepared hard and got National Merit status on his PSAT that I'd take him on a cape buffalo hunt. He got the scores back yesterday and he made it with room to spare. (Great week for him. His team won a state championship in football and he was named Second Team All State.) Would like recommendations on where to go. Here are the criteria I'm interested in: Want to go somewhere where the location, and overall experience will be as memorable as the animal he may or may not harvest. Beautiful terrain, "prototypical Africa experience" , and PH quality are as critical as trophy opportunity. Nice accommodations are not important. In some regards, a rustic , remote experience may be desirable. Willing to take some political risk. E.g. Zimbabwe would probably not be a problem. We would likely want to take some other game. I may want to shoot a buff myself We need to go between June and Mid August My son is in good condition and an experienced hunter and good shot. I'm in decent condition but can get in good condition Starting to repeat myself, but beautiful and varied terrain and the ability to see a fair amount of other game, and being in a location that feels/ looks a bit of old Africa would be ideal. We have hunted plains game in Namibia and had a great trip there. We will be going to either the Dallas or Reno SCI show. Budget: Willing and able to spend money, but worked really hard to get what we have and can't enjoy myself if the meter is spinning too rapidly So , doesn't have to be a "bargain" but like to get value. Would like to have a chance of getting a "trophy" , but willing to compromise the likelihood of this if all the other factors are in place. Thanks for your help. He is a very excited young man! So, where to go and who with ??
