Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?Great area for the big cats, lots of quality plains game including Roan and SablenBuffalo herds were seen everyday. Combo hunts for cats and buffalo are great in this area. Two separate camps in Rungwa. Each fully staffed with great lodging, meals and equipment. Huge concession with no people. Masai area also had a beautiful more permanent site.
