    Awesome trip report (even though you didn't take a shot), and cool pictures. Looks like a successful hunt and life-changing experience to me. I can't wait to hunt Zambia next year!

    What a great adventure! Thank you for sharing and being such a great diplomat for hunters everywhere. I didn't know Zambia was in such bad shape. You are a true humanitarian.

    Hey, bulldogmark, great trip report. Thank you.

    I have a question... My family will be going to Zimbabwe and South Africa in a few weeks and are filling up our excess luggage space/weight with clothes and school supplies to donate. What would you say are the most needed items based on your school visit?

    Apologies for late reply, I would suggest asking them what they need when your there but if you have weight spare then writing books, pens and pencils is good. The rest you can get there. Just be carefully dishing out food and sweets as I nearly got crushed.
