On arrival in South Africa for the first time in May 2014, we were surprised by the sights and atmosphere. After a couple days touring out of the Afton House we headed to Durban and was met by Liam Urry of Liam Urry Safaris. South Africa was completely different to where we had hunted before 'Namibia' a lot more greener and more mountainous. We were after Spotted Hyena, Wateruck, Bushbuck, Impala, Blesbuck and on top of the list was Nyala. We were hunting in the Kwa-Zulu Natal, Liam assured me that this was the best area for Nyala. We first stayed at the camp Kameelkop, just outside the small town of Dundee, from there we drove to numerous hunting concessions in the nearby area. We hunted two to three days, hard hunting , the bush was thick and the Nyala clever! Finally luck was on our side and I got a shot at a beautiful old bull, he went down with one well-placed shot. On the same day we go an Impala ram as well! One afernoon we spotted a Waterbuck Bull grazing on the other side of a deep gorge, we decided to take our chances. We left the resident PH and tracker and Anita on this side and stalked around, wind perfect, the others helping us by showing us the direction it was in. We were sure we had him. All of a sudden we looked back at the others and saw them waving their arms and shouting so to us we had blown the stalk and returned! We soon found out that the Waterbuck had moved on, but it was because of an extremely large male Leopard, that was not more than 30 yards from us and stalking the same animal as us!! Even though we didn't see the Leopard this made me realize "THIS IS AFRICA! We then moved camps to a better area for Hyena, the camps name was Chicks Lodge. Here we hunted a beautiful Blesbuck, one very well placed shot and some tricky retrieval by Liam and his Land Cruiser and I had my trophy! We never did get a Hyena or Bushbuck but this just makes it easier to return. I felt I did extremely well for only four days of hunting. We visited the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi National Park on the last day, we were treated by a herd of Elephants crossing the road just 15 yards from us. We had Elephants all around us. Then for the return to Namibia but thats another story.
