I took my first trip with Mokore Safaris in the Save in September 2016, Gary Duckworth was my PH, haven't stopped thinking about Africa since!! I am glad you got in with one of the finest outfit's in Africa. Looks like the Giraffe did a bang up job as usual. Congrats on a great safari. Tell of some more about hunting each animal. Is that a Red Duiker or Common? Definitely more reddish than my common taken in Zim. Did you see any nice Buffalo?

You cant go wrong with Neil, Doug, or Gary, all of them are great PHs. Like the OP said, nothing against high fence hunting, but you can go plains game hunting in Zim or Mozambique with Mokore for pretty reasonable, dodging some dangerous game along the way. I am told Coutada 9 is full of game and I know for a fact the Mokore Ranch in the Save is loaded with plains game and the Big 5, saw everything (except Leopard, saw lots tracks and heard them) on our trip including Cheetah and Wild Dogs.

Unbelievable, what a fantastic haul of trophies and an amazing way to spend your first African safari!

Great to see the 350 Rem Mag in use in Africa. I also have one in a Ruger. Great little cartridge!

Cheers
Tim

Calawa,
My wife and I hunted with Mokore earlier this year at Sengwa. You just cannot beat Mokore they are a first class outfit. We have another trip already scheduled for the Save in 2019 and want to talk to them at DSC for a Mozambique trip. Thanks for the report it looks like you had one heck of a trip, and took some very nice animals.

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).
