    Great post, Thank you.

    Who could forget a visit to Peter Hankin's grave-site. To me, that is the most iconic "visitation" spot every Safari hunter needs to visit.

    I have a picture someplace.

    That's the trophy fee and doesn't include the daily rates.

    Here's the photo of Peter Hankins Gravesite. It's in the Chanjuzi GMA. For those that aren't familiar, Peter Hankin was the PH that was killed and consumed within morbid earshot of the horrified clients on a photo-Safari he was guiding. This iconic event was chapter one (IIRC) in "Death in the Long Grass"

    An iconic event in the formative years of Safari Hunting. This special place has a powerful feel to it.

    This picture of my Kafue Lechwe was taken by Abie. Look at the horizon...flat. Its almost as though you can see the curvature of the earth it's so flat.

    Was read some of the posts here in regards to Zambia, and for sure if you want a full bag +/- 15 animals on a budget daily rate safari you should not consider this part of the continent, but there is like someone writing "a priceless part" to be in a remote area like Luangwa valley that put memorable impressions for the rest of your life !
