Gardner reports seeing every available species during a "three-hour spin on the first afternoon of his hunt." In 12 days, he harvested eight prime trophy animals: a 51-inch Lord Derby eland, korrigum, western kob, western buffalo, sing-sing waterbuck, bohor reedbuck, western hartebeest and a genet cat.
He says he hunted genet after a chance conversation about it with the concession owner, who happened to have a tag. Gardner estimates seeing 40 of the cats in only 1½ hours. He goes on to say that the entire hunt was first-class, with a very nice camp and excellent services. He says PH Bernard Sehabiague was "the best." And he notes that the concession owner has an excellent anti-poaching program in place, even paying a bounty for every snare submitted to her. The only thing Gardner warns hunters should be aware of is that this hunt is priced a little high, with add-on charges for skinning and transport of trophies back to town. "But it was such a good safari that I did not care," he says. "I got great trophies, and I'm happy as I can be."
