LION HUNT ZIMBABWE, JIMBA SAFARI'S
JUST GOT BACK from a great Lion hunt Safari in Zimbabwe with Jimba Safari's! This is the Second safari with this outfit and PH Wayne Dietrichsen.
We hunted near Hwange national park. We had been tracking a pride of lions, around 15 or so and on the 4th day, early in the a.m. this HUGE lion was with the pride. I shot .416 remington magnum and my son followed up with a 7mm. Down he went. As we approached these huge lionesses were in the bushes about 20 yards away growling like crazy at us. The PH shot in the air and they scattered. This was a fantastic hunt! We also shot, kudu, sable and a 14 ft croc in sijiaria camp at lake kariba. We caught tiger fish and had a blast!DSC02185.jpg
