Game Conditions Comments:I hunted with the same outfitter at 2 separate locations because of the animals on my wish list 1 in the highveld of Gauteng Province and 1 in the bushveld of Limpopo Province. The Gauteng hunting area had very large populations of zebra, black wildebeest, blesbok, and springbok as well as smaller (but still ample) numbers of kudu, eland, warthog, impala, waterbuck, reedbuck, and bushbuck. The Limpopo hunting area had abundant kudu, impala, zebra, waterbuck, and blue wildebeest populations along with smaller (but still ample) numbers of eland, warthog, bushbuck, klipspringer, duiker, steenbok, and bushpig. I shot my zebra, black wildebeest, springbok, and blesbok, and white blesbok in Gauteng Province and my kudu, impala, bushbuck, and bushpig in Limpopo Province.
