Moving a bit north, the British and US press have been pulling out all the stops recently in their reports of gloom and doom in Zimbabwe. And that has inspired a handful of you to write and ask if I think the 2007 hunting season will be ok. Indeed, inflation is exploding in Zimbabwe. Doctors and others have been on strike. The suffering of the local people is getting worse. But all of that has had zero effect on the hunting and conservation infrastructure. I see no reason to waffle on a 2007 safari to Zimbabwe.
One thing you may want to do before you leave is scroll all the way down the Home Page of our web site (www.huntingreport.com) to Important Forms. Click on the button called Zimbabwe Gun Import Form and fill it out in triplicate before you arrive. Seems there is often no carbon paper at the airport, and it will take you a while to fill the thing out three times on arrival. This detail probably speaks volumes about the deteriorating conditions in Zimbabwe.
