    I am currently on Safari in the Kalahari with @Ridgewalker. Here is my update so far. I will only post my own photos for now, as I don't want to ruin the fun for Phil! We have both taken some nice trophies so far, and hopefully have more to come. Stay tuned!

    The Lion and Lioness hunts we've been on have been an adventure to say the least! I took a Lioness myself, and Phil took both a Lion and Lioness. I was able to go on both of his hunts as well as my own. So, we both were able to experience three hunts each. I'll let Phil tell his own story in his hunt report, so I will only include my details in my report.
    For now, let's just say my Lioness had a bad attitude.

    Toby, I've been looking for your hunt updates and don't know how I missed it . What caliber did you finally decide on for your lioness? Was this Buff. bigger than your last one? Looking forward to "the rest of the story."
