The adventure begins today. Headed to the airport shortly to fly NOLA > Atlanta > Joberg, spend the night at the Intercontinental and then Harare tomorrow. Then transfer to a Cessna 206 to fly to the Nyakasanga concession for a 14 day Elephant/Cape buffalo hunt beginning Saturday.

Taking two firearms. My 1910 WJ Jeffery 475 No2 Jeffery double, and my 1914 Holland & Holland 375 H&H as a back up and plains game rifle. 60 rounds of ammo total. 40 for the double (30 solids and 10 softs) and 20 for the 375 (10 solids and 10 softs).

I used Gracy Travel as my travel agent because they are simply the best for my needs. Been using them for twenty years.

Let the adventure begin. Stay tuned.
 
Safe travels, shoot straight!

Love your choice of incredible rifles!!!! Can’t wait for your reports!!!
 
Update: traveling with ammo. Flying U.S. airlines in particular I’ve always had the ammo in a locked container buried inside my bag containing my clothes etc. Not this time. They wanted it to travel with anything except clothes. So out the ammo container came, dumped my toiletries into my main bag and put the ammo container into the bag that had contained the toiletries. They also weren’t sure if the TSA would need to open the ammo case, but I knew better. As I sit in the plane my Delta app has notified me that all three bags are on the plane and my air tags confirm that. Off to Atlanta we go.

I once had the same problem with ticket agent in US. I now carry a printed copy of TSA regulations, stating carry in checked luggage. Ticket agents confuse clothing being in the ammo box with locked ammo box inside locked suitcase. RSA law strictly prohibits ammo case being checked as a separate item.
 
have a wonderful hunt, i too will soon be hunting with buzz.
Where are you hunting and What route and airlines are you taking to get to Zim?
Thanks. I’m hunting in the Nyakudanga concession. I’m flying from New Orleans > Atlanta (where I am now) > Johannesburg. Then Friday Johannesburg > Harare where I’ll catch a Cessna 206 to the camp. Have a great time on your hunt.

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
