This is great around lunch time, not too heavy. Wonderful with a bowl of lupin beans.

I took a bottle of "The Great Aussie Spirit" Bundaberg Rum, I could not tempt the outfitters.

The Queensland Diesel is always welcome in my camp. :LOL: My favourite drink by far.

I think it was that bottle of ice cold water I had in Tanzania when we got back to the land rover after a 4 hour batan death march trying to catch up to a buffalo in the Selous.

Second that. Good plain cold water.

What was the best drink you've had while hunting on safari?
@North American 36
I didn't overly like any of the alcohol in Namibia but a drink I always enjoy is my Bundy Rum. Fortunately I took a 1 litre bottle with me.
My wife isn't much of a drinker but loved Amarula

When I went on the 21 day lion hunt in the Zambezi valley in Zimbabwe I knew I needed to take something with me. You see on most safaris I just like to drink what they have and enjoy the local beers and yes now the scotch. I always hated scotch but spending so much time in Africa you can only drink so much beer! Now I do enjoy scotch of many varieties. When traveling I just want to embrace the culture and drink “whatever pours”!

So back to Zim. I thought what would be better than a really good martini in the middle of the wildness? So I packed a small shaker and a big jar of olives and gambled on being able to get vermouth along with the vodka in the duty free in JNB. I was able to get what I needed at duty free just before jumping on the plane to Harare.
The first few nights I just drank what was in the bar but after taking my lion.....The party was on and the shaker came out of my bag, along with everything else.
What a good time we had. The PH’s, the film crew filing Trophy, and myself sipping martinis in the Omay!
What a memory.

I do love Tafel Lager in Namibia and XXXX beer in Australia. Those two are hard to beat. I know, I’ve had some experience drinking
Regards,
Philip

In Queensland Australia it is XXXX because it earlier to spell than beer in some other areas a carton of XXXX is called a coil of barbed wire.

I know that it’s a Queensland beer. Interesting how each state had its own beers in the past. I so wish I could get XXXX in the states! It may be the best beer in the world. And I’ve done quite a bit of research on the subject !

You would be welcome at my house.
I don't drink a lot of it but I did collect some limited release stuff.
I enjoy the Bundy but I drink beer wine and spirits so I have to monitor my consumption. It's a slippery slope if you drink daily. I could see it gripping me.

Otherwise I would suggest Aussies look toward KMG hunting safaris .

I find Bourbon drinkers don't take to it easily but I don't drink Bourbon but I suspect there is a large American following here and possibly many Bourbon drinkers.

What if I drank it out of a Zulu Maiden's cleavage?
Well that would be better than drinking xxxx Bitter through a pair of old gins undies on a hot day. That's how we describe a Fair Dinkum drinker in Australia.
I reckon the Original XXXX Bitter was the one that went down like Barbed Wire.

They came to their senses and made xxxx Gold, probably one of the best mid strength beers we have.
Bundy is our main Australian produced spirit but in the last 10 years there are heaps of small batch Gin distilleries it's the in thing.
There are a few producers making Australian Whiskey

You’d probably choke on the cellphone, R20 note and a few other things carried in the African wallet that gets washed out by the Amarula

@CBH
Wash your mouth out with XXXX and Bundy mate. If'n you start drinking gin the next steps are soylates with the yuppie mob and renouncing hunting.

Ok, I had some good beers in Africa, one I did not enjoy so much.
I tried some local Brandy.
Local wines are good. I bought some SA wine in Australia and enjoyed it.
I had some Glenlivet on the flights, made the most of it.
I took a bottle of "The Great Aussie Spirit" Bundaberg Rum, I could not tempt the outfitters. I thought I was doing a good thing but they shy'd away. I'm sure Bob woulda made a pig of himself if I was shouting.
Bundy is an acquired taste but once bitten by the Bundy Bear you enjoy its unique flavour. The aged versions are a little more refined like the gentlemen here.
@CBH
I never make a pig of myself on Bundy mate. Half a bottle at the end of a good day in the bush, shower and off to bed for me.

Nah mate, I don't do man buns, lattes or creedmores.
Iman Aussie and I'm planning to be hunting for many moons to come,
They did Gin Squash at a point in time that even I remember.
My wife and her friends do Gin these days, I don't mind I think ladies should drink ladies drinks'
Oops ' I'm on drink duty tonight and she just called Tender'

In the Zambezi Valley, mid day heat, little did I know but my PH Buzz, said

Do you want a “el radler”??

And little did Buzz know but that’s my favourite way to enjoy a refreshing beer to cool down.

Becuase of his past German clients they always had Beer mixed with lemonade. We always use Grapefruit juice here but it was such a small piece of home AND international at the same time with the European flare.

Castle or Zambezi lager mixed with the very strong lemon citrus “pop” I learned quick it wasn’t like North America soda, more like sryup that needed to be watered down

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
