Day 12-13.... Livingstone and Vic Falls

After the hunting portion of the trip sadly came to end, we headed to the falls for 1 1/2 days. After saying our goodbyes to Strang, we checked into the David Livingston Lodge right on the Zambezi. A short time after checking in we got on the sunset cruise. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who stays on the river either in Zim or Zam. Saw lots of hippo and croc, a bushbuck, and lots of elephant.

This place has a few chefs on staff, and the meals were fantastic!!!

What a fantastic trip. You got some very nice Zambian species and a heap of memmories. Thanks for taking us on your journey. I am jealous.

Great Safari and enjoyable report. You took some fine trophies and certainly enjoyed all that Zambia has to offer. Thanks again for sharing with us.

P.S. - You made me thirsty for a Mosi on more than one occasion!

An awesome hunt and a terrific report. Loved every bit of it. It must have been a thrill to hunt in Zambia and take some of the not-so-common PG species like the puku and red lechwe. I particularly loved your lechwe with the heavy broomed off horns. I think it would take me a month to get back into work after a safari like this.

Yes sir, I definitely wanted to take the Zambian specific pg species on this trip, and was fortunate to do so! I was really pleased that I was able to take so many older males on this trip. I too love the character of that old and half blind Lechwe(y)

Zambia is on my radar. Be interested on how it is getting trophies back to US. About all mine will be euro mounts from now on.

Great report Charles, thanks for taking us along. Nice lizard, sable and puku. Love the old wore down lechwe and bushbuck. Do you have an open mouth pic of the hippo?

Thanks for sharing Charles!

Zambia is on my really short list now. And I totally agree on the local animals. I don't so lists anymore per see, but Puku in particular will be something I keep an open eye for.

I tried not to put too much pressure on, but yeah I really wanted to take a few local species on this trip! So glad I was able to take puku, kafue lechwe, and Lichtenstein hartebeest!

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Mtn_Infantry,
That's a monster buck you have in your avatar! Very Nice! Anyway, my brother in law and myself are planning to do some fishing while in Port Aransas. I think he/we are planning on taking a boat charter out a couple of days. He's a serious fisherman and I am not. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
