Good report and great trophies. It appears one more victim of the "disease"

Yep already working on coming back. I agreed to let her pick next year but 2018 is my turn, and there is no doubt where I will go. I'm taking my bow next time though. I planned on it this trip but a limb problem made me leave it at home. If anyone wants any info on that Eland let me know I have more pics of him. I didn't even know what a spiral slam was before I went and almost completed it. I'm having remorse but my house isn't big enough anyway.

Thanks I'm glad you could see that in my review. It was awesome and I tried to relay that. I didn't want to miss any details. I know while I was waiting to go I looked on this website every night and read a review from a different place every night. My wife even started having me read them to her before we went to bed. I wanted to make sure I left my review for anyone possibly doing the same thing.

When I go back I'm sure it will be with Kingsview. They really were great. Jono and Justine are wonderful people and Wayne was really cool to hang out with. I will bring my bow next time though, and my main animal will be a greater Kudu so Jono will have do some magic and we may have to travel a bit but that's fine. I will get to see more of Africa. Until then I will hunt Elk in NM, if I get drawn.

So jealous of your caracal and warthog. Both were on my list and neither happened. You did good!

Excellent report....looks like you had a fantastic trip! You got a really good variety of animals and it sounds like you put on a shooting clinic!!! Extra special to celebrate your 1st anniversary on such a trip as well!

And congrats to Kingsview, I always like reading a report of a safari company that has such a positive outcome. But it does make it difficult in trying to decide who to hunt with whenever I am fortunate to go back!

Well done sir. Good write up too. Many folks just don't prepare their shooting as well as you did. That makes a big difference for longer shots. Nice trophies and even better memories. Great way to spend your anniversary. Bruce

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.
