    Thank you Smitty. Excellent report, right-up, photos and telling the way it was. Some very nice animals you got but more importantly the memories you created. I have 1 year before my return and this time in SA with Francois for a 20 day multi camp hunt. Sorry if he was on the phone or emailing during your hunt, it was me that took away his time as I sent deposit. It is true what all say, you do not go on your once in a lifetime safari. It consumes your life, revisiting your memories, telling stories over and over and then the decision and planning of a return.

    Thanks again for your well written story.

    I am sorry vancewalker007, I just now found your reply. Thanks. I have been bitten! Now I keep thinking of a tent camp, river side, listening to hippos and hyenas, seeing elephants in the bush, and hunting a buffalo! Might have to sell the house, but someday......

    Thanks MarkB! I also just found your post, so I apologize for the late reply. I am glad you are going back! It has been 2.5 months since I arrived home, and it is all I think of. Throw pillows with pictures from the trip, a couple of brag books, a small shrine of Africana I brought back, my wife says I am obsessed and crazy. Guilty. I would love to hear about your upcoming trip. Thank you for taking the time to read my little adventure.
