    headed over for my first dangerous game Safari this summer. Been over for plains game.

    Here’s the dilemma: would you rather???

    1. Shoot a lion and a lioness??

    2. Shoot a lion and a cow buffalo?!?

    I really don’t want a lion of either sex, but if I had to choose, it would me the male cat and the female buff. Just the thought of tracking a herd of those big black things gets me excited.

    Assuming you are talking about doing this in South Africa.... My first suggestion would be to use the funds you have available to go on a real wild buffalo hunt someplace like Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, or Uganda.

    But if you are determined to do it in RSA, how about a buffalo bull and lioness?

    Since I have taken a Buff cow, I believe I would have to go with a lion of either sex and a Buff bull.

    Are these the only options available or the only options you will consider?

    I choose option 3 - Bull Buffalo and then your choice of Lion or Lioness.

    And the Mozambique or Zim options would easily fit the likely cost of what you are suggesting.
