Wow what to say, words cannot describe what a great hunt I had with Louis Van Bergen and all the great staff of Spiral Horns Safaris. I try and report on each hunt but I wanted to thank Louis and post some pics of the great throphies we took.

In 14 days I took Lion, Kudu, Gemsbuck, Impala, Waterbuck, Nyala, Sable, Blue Wildbeest & Zebra. My partners in crime also took 2 lions, 2 Cape Buffalo, Roan, Giraffe, 2 Waterbucks, 2 Nyala, Elan, Gemsbuck, Kudu too add to the totals.

Also I wanted to thank Africa Hunting for hooking me up with Louis and thanks to everyone that helped me plan this hunt in such a short time, it was my first but not my last/ Louis is already working on the Elephant hunt for me & my gang.
