Newsletter 52

Dear Hunting Friends

I hope this newsletter finds you well.

Our hunts have started for the year and I am happy to be able to report that we have had good success on trophy elephant bulls in the Gonarezhou Safari areas that as you know are in my opinion the best areas in Africa to hunt trophy elephant bulls, (and wild trophy buffalo bulls) these areas consistently produce elephant bulls of this quality year after year month after month, in fact it is fair to say that the hunting in the Gonarezhou safari areas of Zimbabwe is getting better and better.

There is almost no poaching in the Gonarezhou thanks mainly to the hard work of the National Parks Scouts and the hunting Operators anti poaching personal that control and patrol the Gonarezhou National Park and the areas adjoined to the Gonarezhou and KNP Parks that would otherwise be used as staging or hosting areas for poachers to enter the Parks including the Gonarezhou and the Kruger National Park that has many kilometres of unfenced shared boundaries with the Gonarezhou hunting areas, both these parks and the Mozambique National Park benefit from the anti poaching work the hunting Operators do. Without hunters coming to hunt here there would be no hunting Operators and no Operator anti-poaching units, we hunters are conservationists this is an undeniable truth.

I have said it before and I will say it again: In my opinion Zimbabwe is the number 1 hunting destination in Africa today, there is NO REASON why you should not be booking your hunt in Zimbabwe. Of course I believe that the areas I offer my clients are the best that Zimbabwe has to offer and below this text is why.

Without a doubt RSA is a wonderful country to hunt and offers hunters many different hunting options and an abundance of species to hunt, such habitat and species diversity cannot be not found anywhere else in Africa. I am able to offer you both South Africa and Zimbabwe so please contact me for more info.

This 70 pounder elephant was hunted by a European client of ours in the Gonarezhou area (Sengwe 2/Dumisa) during February 2016, the hunt was guided by Zim PH Nixon Dzingai:

Hunters let’s be honest with one another here, these are all old bulls that have spread their genes and are age appropriate for hunting, just look at the tusk and body condition to help make your own determination. Of course we cannot promise 70 pounders to every client but you can be sure we are hunting age appropriate animals, you will do the same when you book with us.

This buffalo was hunted by a client from RSA and to be honest not recently but until now I have not had a photo of the buffalo and have not been able to share it with you so I am doing so now. The buffalo was hunted in the Gonarezhou safari areas guided by Zim PH Simon Dzingai.

This hard boss bull measured and un-believable 51 inches in horn width and is age appropriate for hunting. Can this be done again? Would you have said it was possible in the first place? Same story as the 122 pounder we hunted last year? You need to book with us and come hunt your bull.

Thanks for taking the time to read my newsletters, I do have quota and hunting dates available on all big game including elephant, leopard, buffalo, lion, hippo, croc, sable and plains game in top concessions in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Clients, agents, PH’s and Outfitters please contact me for more info on our hunts.

With the USA stopping the import of lion trophies into the USA there is a fair amount of 2016 lion hunting quota available, please contact me for a fair priced lion hunt, this may be the year I get my own lion.

For all our RSA clients please visit us at Huntex Hall 4 stand #416 from the 14th to the 17th of April 2016.

Hunters best wishes
