Great report. I spent a little under a year on the other side of the river in Kinshasa, the photos bring back lots of memories. Thanks for taking the time to post.

Got to be one of the biggest adventure hunts in Africa. Congrats on you Sitatunga. Beautiful animal. Condolences on the Bongo. We go hunting and not shooting. Still a great experience. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for te report STRATTON, we had a great time in the rain forest, it was hard as usual but we saw many forest critters we are not use to see. We did not succeed on bongo even if we saw some... this is hunting right... one day for sure we will get one.
