Have a great trip. Those are beautiful rifles. I am certain that is LeRoy Barry’s stock work. His style is distinctive. If I am correct, that fleur de lis checkering is by his wife Connie. They do some of the best work I have seen anywhere.

Enjoy Zambia. Just a special country for hunting. And the people are some of the most friendly and interesting in all of Africa. On a side trip to Vic Falls, I had a young vendor come up to me and name every US President in order from Washington to Clinton(Sitting President at the time). I couldn’t do it myself. I rewarded his friendliness and sales pitch with the purchase of all his copper bracelets. I am a sucker for folks smarter than me!

Beautiful rifles and like others have said, amazing wood and woodwork.
Good luck on your upcoming safari.

The bolt handles on the rifles don't look like ones I've seen before from AHR and resemble ones from Granite Mountain.
However the action does look to be CZ.
Can you give a few more details about the rifles?

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.
