    Free range Buffalo hunts can be had in North Eastern South Africa.
    The APNR has a very healthy Buffalo population. 1000's of Buffaloes and small quotas make for some fantastic Buffalo hunting.

    yip, nothing wrong with that. RSA buffalo can be just as interesting to hunt, perhaps more...I have hunted Zimbabwe for 10 years 'back in the day' and that was not always the best hunts...

    Sometimes the brain is slower than the fingers. I corrected my anger management problem.

    There are certainly good Buffalo to be hunted in Zambia.

    The APNR probably has some of the most well managed huntable Buffalo populations in Africa today. Free roaming Buffalo in an open big 5 system with an off take so relatively small that it doesn't impact on numbers or quality of animals at all. I have been fortunate and hunted some fine Buffalo areas in my 24 years as a PH , many of them in the different countries north of us and beyond. The Buffalo hunts in the APNR are in a class of their own. The absence of overhunting is striking.
    In the end its about personal preference. What do YOU want to get out of it.

    Happy hunting
