Great article Dean, thanks for sharing!
I have hunted Africa five times since 2013, going with a good friend who is married to a south African girl and made friends with his inlaws on the first trip and was invited back and I,m going back this june-july. I have hunted the lodges, but most of my hunts were on private ranches, a few very large. I hunted on two or three ranches on each trip. my good friend-PH lets me use his rifles and we use his trucks and stay at a good friend of his when not in the field. I think I,ve shot 13 different species, giving away or selling the meat and only bringing hide-horns home. we have stayed in tents in botswanna and roughed it(not too bad). we go in their winter 36-40 degrees at night and 75-80 degrees days . if you get a chance to go, go as it will be a trip of a life time. a few of the animal I have taken.
Appreciate the kind comments. Eastbank, nice piics, thanks for posting them.
I have hunted there four times. Next time fly through Atlanta. J'burg is nonstop from there and no third world airports. Happy Hunting!
Yes, Dullus, Atlanta, Frankfurt etc are all good choices if you want to avoid third world airports. Also, if you are flying with guns those three and Amsterdam are fairly gun friendly to pass through.
Nice article. Thanks for writing it.
I have gone to Africa multiple times, last summer to Mozambique. While all my experiences have been excellent, it's still not the US, Canada or Europe in terms of how things are organized or how things happen. The variety of game is simply unmatched anywhere else.
Stuart is a great guy and provides a very enjoyable hunt. Thanks for sharing your experience.
Heard from the guys, weather is great and the hunting has been good too. Their winter, which is the best time to hunt, is just starting. Apparently there are some great deals available right now on hunts if you look around a bit.
