It's hard to believe it's been a month since we returned from Tanzania but I promised to get this report up so here goes. It may be added to slowly but I had to start somewhere. We booked a hunt with Stephan Stamm of Heritage Safaris. His camp is on the banks of the Rufiji River in the Selous Game Reserve. Getting there was actually pretty simple with a direct flight from Calgary to Amsterdam and then Amsterdam to Dar es Salaam. We overnighted at the Sea Cliff Hotel in Dar and then boarded a small plane for the 45-minute flight into camp the following day. Everything went smoothly with guns and transport thanks to some excelleent staff in Dar. We planned to hunt cape buffalo, hippo, leopard, possibly croc and some plains game. Camp was your typical tent camp but the setting along the river was breathtaking and we had a constant parade of hippos and crocs right outside our tent. Stephan was to be out PH and Paddy Curtis would join us later in the hunt as well. Buffalo and hippo were on the agenda first and after settling into camp and sighting our rifle in (375H&H) we hit the ground running. That afternoon we had a young bull elephant charge the cruiser and we jumped a buffalo at 10 yards in the thick stuff. For a few seconds he wasn't sure if he was going to run away or run at us. Thankfully he decided to flee. There was little doubt in our minds that we were in for one heck of a hunt.
