Swanepoel says he will be working with Adam Buske of Mushingashi Conservation Area, a ranch located in south-central Zambia. Mushingashi encompasses over 100,000 acres and is bordered on the north by the Kafue River and Kafue National Park. The topography ranges from semi-deciduous woodlands, to open grass plains, to grasslands along miles of waterways. Among the species found there are puku, sable, roan and other antelopes, oribi, reedbuck, Sharpe grysbok, duiker, defassa waterbuck, hartebeest, zebra and buffalo. Swanepoel says the area has been well protected and is one of Zambia's best hunting areas. "They just don't have the best marketing plan set up," he says. He will be helping them in that. Interested readers can contact Swanepoel by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or try Buske at email@example.com.
