    Edge, your safari was a thrill! Just read from start to finish and you have inspired me to post some reports of my own. You have quite a way with words, and the pictures just add to the joy of the adventure. Thank you for sharing!

    Great story!! I’m reading this as we sit at the airport on our layover heading to SA for our first trip. Talk about a great way to get the blood flowing. And making the layover drag by lol. Thanks again for the story.

    Big sigh of relief today, Coppersmith notified me the trophies had been cleared! No issues with the paperwork and everything went smooth.

    I had some apprehension as I filed the CITES import paperwork myself with the help of Andy Hunter of Chipitani Safaris who performed the dip & pack and also had Michael Lewis from Coppersmith review the form. The form is quite simple but everything must match on the CITES export/import.

    With the Government funding shortfall and shutdown, I held back on sending the form in until funding and work resumed or the trophies would have been here a few months ago.

    On to the tannery and @The Artistry of Wildlife!
