Day 6 Travel Day- again

We are up early again, as usual. At breakfast, two new hunters arrive from the States. I can see the look in their faces as they tour the lodge. It’s the same astonishment we had 6 days ago. I will say this to anyone considering hunting at AAA Serapa, at first glance on the website or brochures I was unsure if I would fit in or if I would feel “comfortable” staying at this lodge and hunting. Sounds funny to some, but these are not the surrounding I’m accustomed. All that anxiety disappeared with the first 10 minutes. We were truly welcomed and despite the fancy setting, there was never a pretentious attitude or feeling. We were able to relax and enjoy the accommodations for what they were, OUTSTANDING! Whether you’re a Crown Prince or hillbilly, countrified, Texan redneck, you’ll be right at home.

We pack our bags, say our goodbyes and load into our arranged shuttle van for the 6 hr drive to our next adventure.

I will cover the second part in another thread- stay tuned.

Really enjoyed Part 1 of your report. And the trail cam pics were the cherry on top of the sundae! I was planning on taking mine along on my recent hunt and at the last minute decided not too. Now I'm kicking myself! Looking forward to Part 2!

Glad a few enjoyed it. I have part two almost ready but this moving houses is kicking my rear at the moment.

Those pics bring back memories, I was there in 2010, but stayed at the old lodge, I did tour the new one, as it was nearly completed .

Nice report and pictures, and very good trophies !

I don't pretend to be an expert but I had the largest around 40-41. There were several that would have been 39+ for sure.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
