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.
 
Enjoy it
 
Safe travels!

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.
 
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?

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.

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.

Good morning. I'll take all of them actually. Whats the next step? Thanks, Derek
Have a look af our latest post on the biggest roan i ever guided on!


I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….

I'd like to get some too.

My wife (a biologist, like me) had to have a melanoma removed from her arm last fall.

Hallo Marius- do you have possibilities for stags in September during the roar? Where are your hunting areas in Romania?
