Been there twice, no real need to go there again. Nothing there that I cant get somewhere else with less hassle.

In Zim's defense, the whites, and the rural matabele and shona are really great people. It's the bureaucracy that is nothing short of bizarre and the root cause of all frustration. No government attempt is made to be friendly to business, tourism or the local people.

I suspect (but not positive) that the Zimbabwean PH has the hardest PH job in Africa. They get involved in so much bureaucracy, logistics and fees all for the privilege to work with clients in the bush and be taxed.

It seems that the entire nation has a very hard life right now.

Don't get me wrong, I'm thoroughly annoyed by the process of going to Zim but I do love BEING IN Zim.

Lufthansa, Air France, British Air and all the other EU members have a present sanction against bringing firearms into Zimbabwe so there is a no-go there.
its no problem to check out in Joburg and check in to Zimb.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
