Martin Pieters Safaris Zimbabwe 2015 newsletter # 1

After a very successful series of shows in the USA and Europe, we headed back to Zimbabwe to start preparing camps and concessions for the season.

March saw us upgrade our Flagship camp, Ume with the addition of en suite facilities to all the chalets as well as new décor and facilities inside each room Anti poaching activities have been increased with the assistance of National parks as well as MAPP ( Matusadonna Anti Poaching Program ) and we have been highly successful with making sure we keep the poachers out. We continually notice improvements in game numbers and quality.

We started off with an early season elephant hunt in the Omay with Jan taking a good elephant bull in the Jesse.

Our first early season buffalo hunt was a success with a good dagga boy going down on day 2.

A 14 ‘ crocodile went down on day 3 of a 5 day short crocodile safari plains game safari and Tim joined us for his 5th safari taking an excellent nyala down in one of our southern areas.

The first leopard/ plains game hunt down in our Southern concession, the Bubiana Wildlife area was a complete success with a great leopard taken on day 6 as well as several excellent plains game animals. This was Jack’s 3rd safari with me, the first being in the Chobe and Okavango in 2001, great memories with an old friend.

May is a great month for us as we have a dozen safaris on the go from the Omay to Matetsi as well as the second leopard hunt down in Bubiana, will update as soon as I have more material.

Hunt hard....stay safe.
From your Martin Pieters safaris team

Great update!

Zim is simply an amazing place to hunt, or just to be.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
