Where to begin! This was my 10th safari to Africa. As great as everything went, I can only imagine what its like without this covid debacle!! The PH’s had to go to great lengths almost heroics just to get to camp! I spent 34 days, 21 days in the Selous and 13 days in Masailand. I think one of the things that impressed me the most was how Jaco, Looman, Baraka, Thomas, Luca, Dennis & everyone else in camp genuinely respected, liked each other & were Damm good at their Jobs!!
From the mock charge by the Lion I got to all the other great trophies I harvested, memories were made that I will never forget. From the clean camp, happy people & amazing wildlife it was great. Who knew that some the best homemade french fires I ever ate would be in a camp in the remote African bush!! There is a lot of good natured humor during the day, but everyone was deadly serious when need be. I am grateful that I had Martin, a professional photographer along to help me preserve all these precious memories!!
We hunted hard from daylight to darkness, often returning late from remote locations. Even staying in a well setup fly camp a few times to put us closer to the Lion & a couple of other animals about 40 miles from the main camp by hunting trails so about 3hrs away!! During a 7mi walk in a far off corner of their vast concession, we found waterhole/natural spring they never knew was there & Jaco named it after me on this GPS!!
I got 2 Buffalo, 2 Nyasa Wildebeest, Big Lion, Huge Warthog 15in, Southern & Eastern Impala, E.A Greater Kudu, Zebra, Lichtenstein & Coke’s Hartebeest, Lesser Kudu, Fringed Eared Oryx, Grants Gazelle, Gerenuk & White Bearded Wildebeest.
ALL trophies were older males, which is important to me, much more so than horn length or anything else!!If you are looking for a hardworking top notch outfit, LOOK NO FARTHER!!!
Magdel, Jaco, & all your great staff Thank you Again for a great Hunt & overall experience!!I could go on & on about this trip like the Masai digging for water in the dry Lion river, but hell, come see for yourself……
You won’t regret it.
