    This was in South Africa 1800 when months of safari expeditions were all loaded in ox-wagons or ossewa and pulled by some two dozen big bullocks, with men, gear and livestock riding along.

    [I found this interesting story -does anyone have more information on it?]
    Simon Leach of Traditional Mozambique Safaris shared this vintage photo of the leopard that killed his great great grandfather.
    The skin is presently at the museum in the Kruger National Park, the place he worked for and loved so much.

    all-time world record kudu

    This all-time world record kudu was picked up by the late Italian hunter Carlo Caldesi. He found this head while hunting in Mozambique with the safari company of the late Baron Werner von Alvensleben. The head was picked up in 1963 near the Save River. Carlo Caldesi won the Weatherby Big Game Award in 1981, the first Italian hunter ever to do so, for his outstanding accomplishments as a hunter of international repute. The kudu is listed in Rowland Ward with a longer horn measurement of 73 7/8 and a shorter horn measurement of 71 5/8. This is the ONLY known kudu that has ever been measured with horns of over 70 inches. This head outdoes every heads ever recorded by Rowland Ward, and it is one of the greatest trophies ever to come out of Africa.
