Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:The camp needs attention and could be better. Water supply not working well, chalets missing touch (not well equipped) expected at this level. Avoid East Dande Camp Karunga camp
Highlights of Hunt:Zambezi Valley hunting is the ultimate in big game hunting. It is hard rough and strenuous. However the feeling of being successful is awesome as one has worked hard for the trophy. CMS as always provides great hunts. This was my third hunt with them. We got an awesome old dagga boy and a nice elephant bull.
Equipment Recommendations:A good level of fitness is required
