    Great report and some awesome pic's! I am wanting to take my wife to Zambia next year, but I also really want a waterbuck?
    and it seems they dont have them in zam. Did you really enjoy vic falls and what all did you do there?

    Thanks for the comment!

    Yes there are waterbuck there, both common and defassa. We saw waterbuck every day while hunting and had multiple opportunities at them if we were after them.

    The Falls were great! We went to the national park and walked all the trails, went to the Livingston Museum, curio shopping, sunset cruise... all recommended!

    Thank you for the response. when I read you reply I laughed, waterbuck is most definitely on my list and I guess my mind wasnt working.
    My other target animal is nayala and I havent seen them on any outfitters sights? do you know if they are not in this region?

    My apologies if I missed it, but what is Strang's operation called? After reading a great report like this, I would like to learn more about it!

    Strang is in a partnership with Balla-Balla Safaris, but he also operates on his own. He has access to multiple places all over the country.

    Firstly, congratulations on a very successful hunt, an the way you shot in particular. Filling your ream list is icing on the cake.
    As other have written, your writings (report seems insufficient, somehow...) have stirred my memories, and my heart.
    Finally, I pray that Strang can overcome his malarial issues. Again, my deepest appreciation.
