I wanted to take more pictures of the terrain and the neat things that I saw along the way. This is the second Leopard Tortoise that I came across. He had an interesting, non-typical shell. As I knelt down in front of him (?), I wondered if they are capable of sudden bursts of speed. Fortunately, this guy had no @#%$s to give and didn't bite me.
While we were chasing the Black Wildebeest bull, we caused an animal to burst from it's den and take off. I didn't get a picture. Initially, I thought it was an Aardwolf, but in retrospect it may have been a Brown Hyena. I also saw a family group of Bat Eared Foxes and an individual who was busy stalking his dinner who either didn't see us (unlikely) or just ignored us (likely).

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!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
