Thanks to all. It was a great trip full of incredible surprises.
Many of you have expressed condolences about not connecting on the kudu. Thank you. However I look at it as an excuse/opportunity for a future hunt. On my first ever safari a good kudu was the number one animal on my wish list. The PH did his part but I failed. Like many others here I went into that hunt with the idea that it was my bucket list, "once in a lifetime" trip. My failure gave me the perfect excuse to explain my new addiction and return. FWIW the following year I had a kudu on the ground by 8:30 the very first morning and connected with another incredible specimen later in the week.
I'll always go back and there will always be more kudu. Until next time.
