    Blue wildebeest was not in the budget when we went but after seeing the flat skins in the lodge Christine had to have one. The one thing I regret not inquiring about until it was too late was an Nyala ewe. They are gorgeous and would look great in a pedistal mount with a displaying bull. Hint, hint. LOL

    Definitely plan on KZN next trip, even if you want to hunt Buffalo next trip I would still plan a few days there before or after. The lodge itself is not 5 star but is quite comfortable, quaint and well kept up. Its nice, I would have enjoyed staying there even if I hadnt been hunting. I do have plenty of pics so PM me your email and I will send some. In the mean time I have a few pics here - http://www.africahunting.com/south-africa-hunting-reports/5751-ct-safaris-classy-outfit.html

    I am 20 min west of Edson. More than a little bit far for a pop in to compare pics unfortunately.

    Sounds good, Let me know if you are up this way. I am heading out this morning for a 2-3 week hunt (primarily Moose but Elk, Mulie, and Bighorn are not safe either!!!)

    As I have told everyone that has gone to Africa with me- If you go once you will return- They ALL have! Even the ones who said it was a one time deal (including me).
