In Central African Republic, we are pleased to report that political turmoil has all but ceased now that new president, Francois Bozize, is firmly in power. The immediate future there, quite frankly, looks very bright, and we have no hesitation in recommending that you shop among the quality outfitters there for a 2004 safari in search of bongo, Lord Derby eland and other animals. We gained that rosy view by contacting a number of people, including PH/safari operator Fred Duckworth, who just dropped us an unsolicited 1,400-word assessment of the political situation in CAR. Suffice it to say, Duckworth is bullish on 2004. If you'd like to read his report, give us a call or drop us a note and we will send you a copy. Alternately, you can read it on our website, www.huntingreport .com. Scroll down to the "Website Updates" section and click on, "The Central African Republic - May 2003...."
