Spike does that rain you ree getting in Zambia mostly end up below Kariba, or a good portion above?
The kafue goes in to the zambezi below Kariba near chirundu ...but a lot goes into the zambezi ...so both...lot of rivers in zambia
Just seen @Zambezi gave very good info...

Thanks Zambezi. The other significant contributer to Kariba is the Sanyati. What we are noticing is that the ITCZ is coming further down, currently sitting over southern Zambia and Kariba, and as a consequence maybe less rainfall over northern Zambia and eastern Angola. So maybe less flow down the Zambezi and more locally. The question is, will Kariba still get the benefit, or more to Cahora Bassa?

Kevin we are in the north in the copper belt....in straight line not really that far from DRC border, and I promise you we are having sh-t loads of rain....put some photos contrasting here on vanguards hunting report yesterday

Namibia is a genuinely beautiful place. Especially when it rains!
I’ve seen pics from friends of the grass there now and it makes me want to get over there.

I've been twice to Namibia, both during the recent drought, on the way back in September to the Khomas region
Very Excited to see the transformation

First time I was in Namibia the area was experiencing a long drought (2007).
Will be returning next week to within a few tens of miles of there.
I'm curious to see how much different it looks now.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
