    Just got back from a great elephant hunt with Jimba Safaris in Zimbabwe! Booked by Safari Trackers, Adam Clements! We had a great 12 day hunt with Wayne Wayne Dietrechsen and Wayne clark of Jimba safari's. We have been on several safari's in Africa and found this one to be one of the very best. Very Professional staff and extremely experienced and friendly PH's. The attention to detail was what was impressive. These guys are truly professionals and we will definitely go back! We bagged two great elephants and plains game was very impressive. Elephant loves .500 nitro Extress! - Hornady Manufacturing, Inc

    I read some crazy post about Jimba Safari's that was totally unbelievable and not accurate as far as what we just experienced. Just go to the link in this post to see the results!

    Chopperdan, glad you had a good hunt. Not sure which post you are talking about but, if someone was not pleased that is their story and you have yours. That is the problem with point in time measurement!
    Maybe, you are not hard to please. :)

    Please share some more details of your hunt when you get a chance.

    That is an awesome set of tusks you have there. Congratulations.

    Chopperdan,

    Nice elephant. Which concession did you hunt? From the photos it does not look like the Sij area on Lake Kariba.
