    Friends,

    In route to Zim for the safari and wanted to let you follow along while I'm in the bush for the 14 day hunt.

    I'll have no internet or cell but my Garmin Inreach satellite communicator will be sending out updates that will be viewable here:

    https://www.facebook.com/austringeroutfitters/

    Here's hoping that we can cross the Shashe that still is flowing and knee deep, get to camp, find Mr. Spots, Eland, 2 Kudu, 8 impala, Zebra, Klipspringer, Giraffe, Waterbuck, Bushpig, 4 Baboons, a basket of game birds and maybe a tuskless!

    Clicking on the embedded link will permit you to send inbound satellite text messages as well if you want any intel on the ground for the happenings in Matabeland South.

    An occasional pic or two will be posted as Internet access at certain legs permits.
