    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone has recently hunted buffalo in the Timbavati.

    I am considering the Timbavati area as a free range hunt option vs. Zimbabwe for next year and would like to know what other people's experiences have been?

    Timbavati (SA) is an epic area! prolific wildlife and LOTS of buffalo - big cats everywhere.
