All, I’m looking for outfitters that can offer a “wilderness” style hunt for Buffalo and maybe a tuskless in the Luangwa valley or similar area.

You should contact Michael. At least see what he has to offer. He is a sponsor with operations in the valley.

Approximately when are you looking to do this?

I’d suggest you contact a reputable booking agent. Jack Atcheson and Sons (my agent) or Hunting Consortium are two very good ones. I see a lot of negative comments about using agents, but there is a major difference between a professional who have built their business on repeat clients vs an amateur with limited knowledge looking for commissions. They can go over multiple options and pricing and give a lot of information you aren’t aware of. Other than a select few, much of the information you might get here will be 2nd hand for Zambia.

Would consider Zim and Caprivi as well
I’ve seen quite a bit of the Caprivi and have had really good hunts there. The animals are without question wild, but calling it wilderness is a mistake. There are many villages and has a lot of people and cattle. Lions are absent many areas. The rivers have a lot of tourism operators. Travel is really easy cause of paved roads. The community conservancies have a lot of land being cleared for farming and timber. I’m not saying there isn’t very good hunting beyond this activity, but calling it wilderness is a mistake. I think it got the reputation because it’s an area you can hunt for quality big game in a very stable country. If you want wilderness stick with Zambia. I’m sure Zimbabwe too, but I haven’t been there yet to comment on it.

Caprivi - game trackers Africa (plenty of Buffalo and you can get a tusker for the same price as tuskless). Zambia-Byron Hart safaris. Zimbabwe-shangani safaris (a true outback experience with big buff and elephant and you will additionally see lions hippo and black rhino in camp). You will not be disappointed with any of these outfits or the concessions they hunt on.

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).
