    I have just returned from Botswana and my first Elephant hunt. I was hunting with Safaris Botswana Bound and PH Clive Lennox in area NG47. My hunt was scheduled for 10 days but I took a 50# / 50# bull on the first afternoon. The good news was that my hunt was successful, the camp and PH were top notch and my travels were safe and uneventful. I was only signed up for elephant and did not transfer to another area for any additional game.
    The bad news was that the hunt was so quick. I guess I will just have to go back and hunt elephant again sometime in the future. It saddens me to think about Botswana closing hunting and not being able to fully explore this area again. Hopefully the closure is short term and we can again all dream of hunting Botswana in the future.
