Coutada 11. With a PH who is no longer in the area.
If this is in response to my post, we, Mashambanzou Safaris took this concession over from J.P. two years ago as he moved his operations back to S.A. No offense intended, just clarifying.

Personally, for a first buffalo, if there are to be more, I would go for an RSA high fenced hunt. You can probably get one for $7500 if you shop around. For a first hunt I think you would find that plenty exciting.

None taken. It was intended as a response to the original poster's question. You have an excellent concession. I hunted it over a decade ago. Great memories.

I would like to invite you to have a look at Tsala Hunting Safaris.

Our property is close to 10 000 acres with sustainable herds of buffalo.We have plenty hard boss old bulls wondering the property some that we estimate could be above 47".

We also have a variety of plains game on the property including hippo and croc.

We are a mere two hour drive from Johannesburg Int airport that could positively effect your budget and time to spend on hunting.

I will add some pics of bulls we have seen.

Keep well and looking forward to hearing from you

Regards

Rouan

We can certainly help.you with that. I believe we have some of the best buffalo areas in Southern Africa. If you are prepared to turn dowm a few bulls, like we nornally do, you will have an oppertunity at a great buffalo. But more important, we try to shoot only 12 year and older bulls. In other words, proper dagga boys....

I am hunting with Tsala for my first Cape Buffalo in July 2021. I am a market researcher so I researched. I found so many great places and companies so many mentioned here. I chose Tsala for my first Buffalo hunt with my new Rizzini Rhino double rifle. I felt for my first hunt after checking them out they are the perfect outfitter for my first DG hunt. Very responsive and work hard to please. Because of Covid and my wife’s fear I had to change dates three times before finally locking down for good with deposit and air fare all booked. They were so kind to work with me on this. Good luck with your search

Lol Flatwater Bill! One thing I noticed in my research these incredible people responding to you have all been on multiple hunts and enjoyed them all for different reasons. It has taught me this will not be my only Buffalo hunt in my future so I do not feel tremendous pressure like I did at first though greatly excited for my first one

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.
