The ultimate safari in Africa
SafariBwana's expedition style rough hunts
This 14 day trip is a classic combination of tough mental attitude and extreme patience. To get a big Sitatunga takes time and even if you know they are there, it can mean hours of hard work and scouting before you get your shot.
We have access to a new hunting concession which surrounds a national park. Within the park Sitatunga numbers are very high as well as Sable and Puku. In 2008 we will be exploring this area with a view to open it for 2009 hunts and we are able to offer those wanting a true expedition style experience the opportunity to come along and take a Sitatunga at reduced rates.
This hunt is an expedition style trip where we cover the entire hunting area with a 4x4 Toyota land cruiser, camping out wherever we are at the end of each day and sleeping beneath the stars. Typically we'd find suitable Sitatunga habitat, stop, set up a rudimentary campsite and we check out the area for large tracks and sign. We usually build tree blinds and then sit early in the morning and evenings in anticipation. This trip is participatory and you need to be prepared to look after yourself and have a sense of adventure to enjoy this true African bush trip.
We provide the essentials, vehicle, tracker / skinner / camp help, food, drinks, bucket showers, basic toilets. That's it! You need to bring your own tent, sleeping gear and and other usual stuff you go hunting with. We do not expect you to do any hard work, we have staff for that but you may enjoy cooking over the open fire or building a tree blind or even constructing a boma out of grass and tree branches where we will sleep.
This is a great African hunting experience as it allows many days in a wilderness setting at reasonable rates and gives you a typical rough hunting experience. This is how we grew up hunting as kids, this is the best way to experience Zambia.
