SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: When we started hunting we found out that the prices were different than the booking agent had told us and we were supposed to sightsee for two days up front and hunt for 12 days. We only hunted for 10 days because there was a mixup between the booking agent and the outfitter. The outfitter honored the price that the booking agent had told us and most of us didn't mind the last two days of not hunting but it may have cost one of the hunters a leopard.
Highlights of Hunt: Good times with friends. I went to South Africa last year and it was very commercial. Zimbabwe is real Africa with no fences.
Equipment Recommendations: Flashlight, washcloths, insect repellant.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? A good hunt with plenty of game. Real Africa.
