The inevitable has happened - ZAWA moved in on our area this morning at 4 am. They have stopped all hunting mid-stream again and have instructed us to move out of the area. We will reconcile all deposits held to date and will work on refunds in the next week or so. I can not apologize enough for what has happened, but it is beyond my control. Our legal team says it is best for us to comply at present for our own safety. We will, however, not give up on things, though this season is dead for now.
We have a court hearing on 23 October in the Supreme Court for our main case, and we will continue to pursue the legal recourse open to us. We can do no more. In the interim, please advise all clients booked for 2007 not to travel, and we will do what we can to assist in damage control.
Here at The Hunting Report, I plan to monitor what happens to Nyampala, and would-be Zambia safari clients may want to do the same, as this is indeed a super-prime area that offers wonderful full-bag hunts. Trophies available here include top-quality lion. Information like this, by the way, is available in spades in our new book, Zambia: A Country Report. A flyer advertising the book should have been inside this issue of your newsletter. If not, call us and order a copy over the phone: 800-272-5656.
