    Hi everyone, I'm sitting at Kennedy airport with my better half on the way to the Eastern Cape for alittle R/R . As most of you know this is not a "hunting" trip but I'm squeezing in one day on Wednesday the 4th of May. I'm trying to complete my spiral slam needing Nyala and bushbuck. I'll keep everyone up to date.

    I'm interested in how this turns out - nyala have always been easier for me than bushbuck. You only seem to get a couple of hours in the morning and late afternoon to find bushbuck . . .

    Good luck!

    I think they can be hard to find there - depending on where you are. But good luck - the Chobe bushbuck is one of the most beautiful.
