I made my first trip to Africa in June 2012. I had the time of my life. Imet Arnold Payne at the Sportsmans Expo in Phoenix, I talked with him at the showin 2011 and met with him a couple of times before I booked my hunt. After talking with friends who had been to Africa and a few of Arnolds past clients I booked A Cape Buffalo and a plains game safari with IAS. I was alone on this hunt, but as soon as I arrived in Bulawao and was met by my PH Albert and driver Carl I felt like I was with old friends. I lost a day due to my luggage not arriving at the same time I did, with only one flight a day from South Africa we headed to Buffalo camp near Lake Karibe as soon as my suitcase arrived. Camp was wonderful, chef, maid, skinner, PH, and Carl, made every effort to make me comfortable and happy. I spent the next six days chasing buffalo up and down the mountains. I was able to harvest a dugga boy late on the sixth day. It was truly a fantastic hunt and I was delighted to take a record book animal. I was in awe of the professionalism of the whole staff and the knowledge of my PH Albert. He had an answer for every question and I learned more from him in the two weeks that I hunted with him that I thought be possible.
The second part of my adventure was to the Bubiana concesssion. The lodge was great, food fantastic, Cynthia sure can cook. In less than five days I harvested nine trophy quality animals, all by spot and stalk and still hunting. I truly had a trip of a lifetime. Everything Arnold told me was true. I have and will continue to recommend Impala African Safaris to anyone looking for a real African hunting experience.

Sincerely
Craig Rising

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
