    As I understand it the non-trophy buffalo is fully exportable. Would you confirm it?

    That's affirmative, the non-trophy buff is exportable. Let me expand a bit re what constitutes a non-trophy animal: it does not need to necessarily be under 36" spread (I have it wrong in my posting at under 35"), it could be a broken horned old fellow, seriously broomed off tips, or a "skull cap", basically an animal that would not under normal hunting be considered a desirable trophy. In fact, there is the potential for a good hunt as the target buffalo are invariably old, bitter, lone fellows that have been through the mill and round the block lots of times.
    Hope this helps.

    relationship to Sebenzani Safaris

    Hi Jerome,

    Sebenzani is a recently established booking agency in Texas, owned by a husband and wife team who I have guided in Africa many times, hunting, photo, fishing. They have engaged me as their African "partner" to both market hunts and more specifically to guide their clients. All 100% above board. These folks are doing it for their love of Africa and not for the financial returns (money is not an issue for them) they want to provide a genuine professional service based on the experiences, good and bad, they have had themselves. The website is still being developed, should be up pretty soon now.
