    Hi Buff-Buster,

    Great story and great shots.

    Ps. Please count me out from your "computer challenged". I am just trying my best to share my experiences.

    Thanks Bob!....As a matter of fact I did! Well, I probably had a drink for you too later that night during the celebration. Come to think of it, I think I tried to have a drink for all AH members!...LMAO

    Must have been off hunting this fall when you wrote this up.

    I was looking for a hunt report on Grants outfit after meeting him. I must have misspelled the company name as nothing came up.
    I knew someone from AH had just been there as the website had the trophy pictures with the caps.
    Theo pointed me at the report thankfully.

    Thank you for the great report.

    Just gets you thinking.

    I've read a lot of great hunting reports here and enjoyed them tremendously. Some of them had some "hair raising" descriptions of close encounters, charges from DG and so forth. Your description of a boat loaded with hippo with a faulty engine hitting an eddy and taking water over the bow in croc and hippo laden water really got my heart racing. Man, these are stories for a hundred tellings around a fire.

    Thanks for writing all of that out and posting the photos and videos. What an experience.

    Thanks for the kind words......I could tell it a hundred times around a campfire and still be just as excited as the first time I told it!

    Just an update for everyone - Grant (Mashambanzou Safaris) just contacted me to let me know he will have a booth at the Dallas Show next year. Please stop by and say hi.

    One more update:

    Grant and Mashambanzou Safaris will be at booth #3855 at DSC. When you come through the main entrance to the hall, it's in the section to the right, close to the main food court. Please stop by and visit. I'll be there helping Grant and would love to meet other AH members.
