Hi All,
Just pulled the trigger on a Cape Buffalo Hunt in Zambia for mid August.
My "Cruise Director" tells me this is the last trip we are taking that involves hunting.... I guess I'll be on my own the next time.
My plan was to return to South Africa in 2018 for Buffalo but I just couldn't pass up the Mbizi deal.
Thanks for all the positive comments on my previous posts for information on DG hunts.
I'll be flying with Ethiopian airlines through Addis Ababa as the flights and connections are really good from Canada. Not taking firearms this trip.
Any tips or hints for a successful hunt would be appreciated.
Thanks
Chuck

Congrats! Really looking forward to hearing how your hunt with @Mbizi Safaris goes as I am interested in potentially booking with them in the future!

Congrats on the booking, Are you just taking a buff or going to add some plains game?

Haven't really decided that yet. If I get lucky I would be interested in a chobe bushbuck or a puku. Buff first.

Congrats!

And I like how you're thinking on the PG. Take what you can't get elsewhere, and what Africa gives you. :)

Take lots of pictures and notes from your trip and write that hunt report.

What airport are you flying out of?

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
