Terrific report, and hunt! I really enjoyed reading this.

ZH is one of the outfitters that I've been considering. My non-hunting wife would be accompanying me as well, so I appreciated your comments on the lodging.

Can you elaborate on the general quality of the buffalo hunting in the area? That would be my primary specie, over a 10-12 day hunt.

On Sango, the buffalo hunting is good. I've shot four bulls on the Save, all in the 40 inch class. All were very solid and old and big bodied as well. You will have several opportunities at mature buffalo in 10 days and you should get your bull if you can walk, see, and shoot. Provided, you will not see herd of 100s of buffalo every day. You will track groups of 6 to 10 dagga boys and the occasional herd of 40 to 60. Very rarely do you see 100 buffalo, but it does happen.

I'd say the best option for buffalo with your wife along would be out of the Sango lodge. However, you could also make a nice hunt from Hammond - ARDA, which is also run by ZH. In fact, we really enjoy Hammond camp and Hammond - ARDA are, in my opinion, the best buffalo areas in the conservancy.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
