After 2 years of planning my Tanzania hunt finally arrived. Got lucky on COVID issues and made it to Tanzania ok on Ethiopian through Addis Ababa. Thanks to @TRAVEL EXPRESS express for taking care of the logistics and rebooking cancelled flights.

I had talked to Nathan multiple times on the phone, but landing at the bush airstrip in Rungwa was the first time actually meeting him. He is a great guy and runs a top notch operation. Everything on the trip was exactly as he had said it would be. The tented camp was very comfortable and the views spectacular. Food was amazing --- his cooks did better in their rustic kitchen that most NYC chefs can do with 100k worth of equipment. Vehicles were all in good order, drivers and trackers were super hard-working and just fun people to be around. Their skill on the ground is amazing. Nathan was my primary PH and Thabit came along several days as his second.

Turned out to be a great time of year to be there. Weather was cool in the morning and warm but not too hot in the afternoon. No rain. Only down sides: The tsetse flies were intense at times, but it just required and extra layer of clothing to keep them at bay. The year kicked off pretty wet before I was there, so season was a couple weeks behind schedule and we spent more than expected amount of time getting stuck in the mud, literally.

In summary, I can't say enough good things about Nathan and @Bullet Safaris and I would not hesitate to recommend them. Can't wait to go back some day!

Photos to follow.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
