The Kiwi couple…


Off to a great start. After picking up our clients we headed to camp, it was already dark but still early. On our way there, we started spotting different game and we where lucky enough to see an African wild cat trying to stalk a Jameson’s red rock rabbit and even an elephant…

We decided to make a specie list of all the animals we saw excluding most birds and we ended up with a whole bunch of animals on the list. Hunting in Limpopo on a big free-range area, we managed to see the following:
  • Black-backed jackal
  • Kudu
  • African wild cat
  • Blue wildebeest
  • Impala
  • Warthog
  • Sable
  • Elephant
  • Giraffe
  • Waterbuck
  • Bat eared fox
  • Duiker
  • Zebra
  • Bushbuck
  • Buffalo
  • Baboon
  • Tsessebe
  • Hippo
  • Water monitor
  • Spotted bush snake
  • Common Reedbuck
  • Bushpig
  • Klipspringer
  • Crocodile
  • Oryx
  • Blesbuck
  • Nyala
  • Scrub hare
  • Red rock rabbit
  • Small spotted Genet
  • Ostrich
  • Porcupine
  • Springbuck
  • Dwarf mongoose
  • Tree squirrel
  • Ground squirrel
  • Eland
  • Steenbuck
  • Mountain reedbuck
  • Red Hartebeest
  • Vervet monkey
  • Slender mongoose
  • Roan antelope
  • Serval
  • Banded mongoose
  • Bushbaby
South Africa has allot of beauty. Our biodiversity is one of them, and we are fortunate to hunt in areas like these. Not only did we get to spotting al these animals, but we also went on to get some great quality trophies as well. We ended up with Bushpig, Duiker, Impala, Warthog, Nyala and a Kudu!

Congrats to the hunters and thanks for sharing!
Congrats on the hunt! Thanks for sharing.
Those hunters took some nice trophies. The kudu, nyala and bushpig were very nice.
The smiles always tell the tale better than any words. Nice Kudu.

Thank you, he was quite an old bull, all worn down and his left eye seemed to be going blind...

Thank you! The bushpig just adds some night hunting and a different aspect to the hunt!
Congrats to the hunters, outfitter and PH! Those are some classy animals that were taken. That kudu and warthog!

But I had to go look up what a “bushbaby” is exactly!
Congratulations all around, some very nice trophies taken. Well done and thanks for posting.
That couple seemed to ‘immediately immerse in the moment & live the experience’ from the pick-up to the tailing moments of the hunt … nice & as it should be.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
