    Return just now from Matetsi 5 in Zimbabwe with @Martin Pieters Safaris after hunt elephant bull (over 41 pounds) and buffalo (over 40) I only can say that was my best Safari after have done in Africa more than 13. The camp, the staff, the hunt, was really nice and Martin is one of the best PH I Know. I have finished the hunting days with one nice spoted hyena, one warthog and one impressive reedbuck. All I have to say is Thank you so much Martin for this Safari, will hunt together soon. Use one LARM rifle 458 Lott.

    Looks like a very successful hunt in the Matetsi. Great area from what I've read about it.

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations some very nice trophies, excellent reedbuck. Nice to hear Martin is getting some good reports in. Previous reports have been sketchy.

    What a safari. Martin is a great guy and excellent PH. I hope to hunt Matetsi someday with him. @Martin Pieters Safaris
    Do you have more pics? Scenery, camp, etc? I’d love to see more of Matetsi.

    Philip the camp is perfect, and is recently renovated (this photos are old). You will enjoy with Martin, is a very good hunter and better person.
