Hi Jerome...just to advise, hunting is open in Zambia again this year 2015 with the exception of lion. We believe that will be back next year. Also , bow hunting of lion, leopard, buffalo and hippo is allowed in Zambia......provided a letter of permission is approved by National Parks.
Not sure if you have done your hippo/croc hunt yet? I have guided several hippo and crocodile bow hunts in Zambia. The Luangwa is an excellent place to do this hunt. You can take a croc with your regular plainsgame kit but if you are going to hunt a hippo then use your hippo bow for both...
I have a custom built .425 Westley Richards express with its own leather box , detachable scope and leather case made by WR and silver oil bottle , custom strap - the whole unit was specially engraved and built for a hunter. Well built and beautiful to shoot. Truly a collectors item. Offers??
I would be happy to help if you are interested in Zambia. We have a wide range of interesting species. You can contact me - I have guided several father (rifle) / son(bow) safaris. Would be glad to help.
