John and Margaret came over mid of March. They flew from Sydney to Bankok, to Nairobi to Bangui to the hunting area, 37 hours...... long way. The main animals for John are Lord Derby Eland and Lion but deep in his mind and for 30 years he is dreaming about Bongo. When I met him by the airstrip he asked me if one is available, yes I said. Let's start by the Bongo as the moon is still ok and even if march is not the best time. The next day we drive to the bongo camp 5h drive. Unfortunately I got malaria on the way, he had to drive me to the camp. I was bad but he went to the machan with the trackers. When he came back the morning he was very excited because he saw 30 Bongos but he could'nt take a shot. I was a bit better and we went together for the next 5 nights without seeing a single bongo!!!! So we decided to move and try later if we have enough time left. John shot a nice Eland quickly, we set up bait for lion where we saw some fresh tracks and before dark we called. 15 mn later 2 lions, male and female came 20 m away on our back!!!! By the time we saw them they ran off and we could'nt take a shot. Anyway to make a long stry short, we moved to another camp, set up more bait and call again. One leopard hit one bait and John decide to try, good for him, at 7 pm he was in the back of the truck.... and the next day, 20 hours later the lion was at the same place, unbelievable. John shot 14 animals during his trip, he was very very happy but I am sure something is missing and I am sure he will come back for his bongo... 48 inch Lord Derby Eland Buffalo Red River Hog 4 inch Oribi 26.5 inch Sing Sing Waterbuck Blue Duiker Buffalo Lord Derby Eland Lion Leopard Leopard bait!
