Game Description
Major Game Animals Taken:Buffalo, Cape; Crocodile
Game Sought But Not Taken:Leopard; Eland; Kudu; ; ;
Game Conditions Comments:Incredible numbers of buffalo and crocodile. It was challenging and interesting but there was no lack of high quality trophies in both species. While we did not choose to shoot three of the species we were seeking, we saw representative bulls of each. We harvested a number of other species incidental to the ones we were seeking.

Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt:Rob Oostindien is a great PH and really works to offer a quality hunt. The sheer numbers of buffalo are astounding and there are plenty of trophy bulls. We had planned to hunt crocodile just because my kids wanted the trophy, and were not thinking it would be an exciting hunt, but it was really great. I would recommend a crocodile hunt with Safaris de Mozambique for anyone. We have been on numerous safaris and while elephant and buffalo have clearly been the highlights, the crocodile hunting was surprisingly exciting and challenging. Can't wait to go again.
