Dear All Just back from a stunning hunt with Halsted Safaris in the Zambezi Valley, West of Mana Pools in the Nyakasanga area, Hurungwe Safari Section. We were in the area during July, with great weather and lots of Game. Our PH was Paulilo Halsted, a young energetic 4th generation Zimbabwean, literally taking the bull by the horns and living his dream in the often turbulent country. He is a prime example of the new generation of Zimbabweans who in the face of shortages of everything imaginable( from cash to food) are making a stand for ETHICAL Big Game Hunting in a fantastic area. We had our fair share of nightly visitors from a pride of lion, to ele and heyna!!! Truly wild African bush We were a party of 6, hunters with a few observers, using 416 Rem, 450/400 Rigby, 375 H&H, 300 WM and Paulilo using his own stunning Italian 500 Jeffrey for back up. Our bag included Tuskless Ele, 2 x Buf, Impala, Warthog, hyena, kudu, eland. We hunted with Paulilo's Landcruiser, completely fitted out for proper hunting in a vast 280 000ha area. Not a single rattle was heard over the long dusty roads. His tracking team, Albino and Dennis were up to scratch and the cook , Rosa, was the best in the business. We took all our game on foot. Buf were taken after tracking for up to 16 - 20km per day, resulting in proper amazing short range shots in the thick Jess ( Valley Speciality ) Our pre and after hunt arrangements were handled professionally and with minimal fuss. A very memorable and professional hunt.
