Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:None
Highlights of Hunt:This was my son's hunt. I was along to video the hunt. rnStalking Eland for hours and days. The giraffe would constantly alert the eland and we had to start over. One shot on the eland and he went down. rnMy son was mixed on the leopard hunt: Demanding, psychologically exhausting at times, exciting and boring. All the elements that make up a leopard hunt. We had rhino near the blind, elephant, a hyena. But no leopard. The guide, Naftali was excellent. He was fun to hunt with. He has a good sense of humor.
Equipment Recommendations:A 30-06 was enough gun. rnIt is dry and hot. Light boots for walking in sand and desert conditions.
