    I'm getting close. I depart Seattle on July 12. Jet Blue flight 264 to JFK. Then South African Airways filk 204 to Johannesberg. Anyone else on the flights?

    I'll be hunting with Chamanzi Zulu Safaris near Pongola in the KZN. I haunted with them in 2009 and had a blast. I'll be after Kudu, Nyala, Bushbuck, Mtn Reedbuck, Gemsbok and Steenbok. I may take 1 or 2 more. I took the 3 Spiral horns last time. I had such a blast hunting them (Especially the Bushbuck) that I want to hunt them again.

    Nothing like a spiral in the horns to get your blood going.

    Happy planning and waiting.

    I hunted near Pongola earlier this year. I took a nice nyala and a SCI Gold reedbuck. Much different than other parts of RSA with the humidity and bugs, so bring your gear and skin sprays. I didn't see any gemsbok there but tons of nyala and those bushbuck hid very well! Best of luck!
