Airline Comments: In Brussels on return flight that required that federal police get the firearm from baggage/cargo hold in the inbound plane and place it in the cargo hold of the outbound aircraft. They seemed very confused, unknowledgeable and rudely bureaucratic and secretive about the whole thing and almost caused me to miss my next flight. I'd avoid if possible and if not then scheduled several hours' time between flights.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: No material issues.
Highlights of Hunt: 1. Following up a wounded buff (heart shot) into the tall grass. Was not necessarily seeking this but that's the way it played out. It's an attention getter! It is nice that an Tanzania you can get two buff licenses on a 10-day hunt, thus relieving the pressure to bet the "best" buff in the concession for a 1-buff hunt. 2. Shooting an Impala facing me at 285 yards using two sets of shooting sticks as taught at FTW Ranch safari shooting class. 3. Watching the PH call back a stampeding herd of buff -- five times! Took the only shootable male in the lot on the fifth call back.
Equipment Recommendations: Took just one rifle, a Dakota 375 H&H rather than two rifles and this worked out fine. Sight in your rifle as usual, but also ask the PH to let you shoot at 300 yards to see where your bullet strikes at that range in Tanzania temps and elevation. You will be presented with several PG shots at 250 yards plus and this is sometimes as close as you will get before they run for the hills. Take an extra set of shooting sticks in your rifle case and ask the PH to have the guys have 2 sets of shooting sticks - their plus yours - every time you get off the truck. Practice using them and you can take PG reliably at 300 yards with a high-velocity DG rifle like 375, 416, 458 Lott and the like.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Yes. The camp was superb in every respect. I'm pretty particular about things especially when paying Tanzania prices. Jack Brittingham is the same way, and he demands the best from his staff and it shows. For example, regarding equipment, his Toyota land Cruiser pickup truck (ute) was in superb condition, but despite this significant investment, he had a mechanic in camp doing preventive maintenance nightly, AND an extra hunting vehicle to boot. Used the winch several time due to mud and it worked perfectly. Got a flat tire while hunting and the guys had it fixed in about 7 minutes. Absolutely no hunting time lost for any reason at all. Aircraft landing strip in superb condition. Skinner did an exceptional job and skinning shed in great condition; plenty of fresh salt. They even got a Guineafowl to the taxidermist in mountable condition - quite a feat! Laundry perfect. No issues with camp or camp staff - quite superb and I can rarely say this about any outfit.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
While not the cheapest African hunt, Jack runs a superb outfit and it equates to good value for money. He is also focused on conservation and takes fewer animals than the government allows and it shows in the quality of the animals. I appreciate that Jack instills a conservation mindset in everyone. The PH passed up several 40 inch plus buff who were still breeding or had soft bosses. I appreciate that the PH and I were both willing to pass up bigger buff so that they could continue passing along their great genes to the herd. Boddington is right - us hunters are sometime shooting too many breeding bulls and have got to pass them up for older bulls that still look good but are not breeding or are old. I'm glad that Jack enforces this with strict rules. Even if his PHs wanted me to shoot a younger, wider bull (and they don't), they wold be gone as soon at Jack saw them in the shed or in trophy photos. While you have to work, there is lots of opportunity on good buff as well as most PG. Also saw lion and plenty of elephant, some shootable if on license. Lots of hippo in rivers and on land. Heard lion and hyena almost every night. Had an elephant rumble about 20 feet from my tent the first night in camp - I did not know they could do this - interesting in the pitch dark! Heyna tracks around my tent almost every morning but was always safe in every way. Tetse flys present but not as bad as I expected - may vary from year-to-year. Used insect repellent and sunscreen daily, and did not wear blue or black clothing which attracts the buggers. Though perhaps not required, to maximize the chance of getting the best animals, be prepared to walk up to 10 miles per day, or more if to track animals. Be prepared to shoot plains game at 250 yards and perhaps further to get the best chance at good animals -- this is not a zoo and they will run if you get close or lose favorable wind. Practice with sticks before your trip. They did a great job preparing the animals for excellent trophy photos that honored the animal and the hunt. They were careful to get off all blood, posed the animal well, and took several photos. I appreciate that they are respectful of the animal and of my experience to take this seriously and take time to do it right. While in the field I decided that on the way back I wanted to schedule a side trip to Zanzibar. The PH used the satellite phone to contact the office in town and they arranged everything for me. When I got off the charter flight in Dar I walked across the airport and got on a scheduled flight to Zanzibar. I was met by a private, local guide who showed me all the sights in Zanzibar -- the Old town, Livingstone's Church, the old slave trade square, the spice and fish market, local museum, a reliable and informal restaurant. He was educated, spoke superb English, and knew the history and culture. People knew him and I always felt safe. As an American I would not recommend going into Old Town alone as the ancient streets are Byzantine and while I guess it is generally safe it is impoverished and Islamic so wisdom is in order. I would also recommend the scheduled Cessna Caravan flight and NOT to take a boat of any kind - fishing or commercial passenger ferry. Just before I arrived a commercial operator overloaded his vessel with passengers. The ferry capsized and 31 people drowned. The safari operator arranged and paid for the flights and private tour and just let me pay them later. Very efficient and glad I took the time to visit Zanzibar for a day. I was back at my hotel before dark. Jack is basically his own booking agent for his safari company in Africa. While some people may want an independent safari booking agent (I generally do, too) in this case Jack does a good job of handling both booking and operations. The entire experience - from Safari planning to getting the right trophies back in good condition: 9.5/10. I want to thank Barbara at The Hunting Report for recommending that I talk with Jack (as well as a few others) when I was looking to book a Safari. Recommend the FTW Ranch SAM Safari shooting class. I absolutely would not have taken the Impala facing us at 285 yards I did had I not learned to shoot off 2 sets of shooting sticks before the hunt. Taxidermy: As always, Animal Artistry delivered. No, they are not fast, but they are superb in every single way from import to delivery and IMO well worth the wait and the cost - just the best - period. Again, this is not the kind of review I think I can honestly give very often - I have very high standards and they meet and exceed my standards every time. Used Sea Cliff hotel in Dar and paid for upgraded room. Room and food were good, but always carry or lock up your valuables and as always in Africa do NOT consider the room safe secure.

Game Condition Comments: There was a lot of top quality game. We worked hard for the animals we collected and took many above average animals. I was looking forward to seeing the masai people, but after being there for a few days they are having a tremendous impact on the land and wildlife. Over the last 15 years the population has exploded(I think I heard tripled but can't confirm). If the population keeps increasing along with the amount of their cattle, it is going to create tremendous pressure on the game animals to co exist with the people and the cattle/goats/ and donkeys.

Airline Comments: Upon checking in at the United desk in San Jose, CA, I was told my bag was over weight and I would incur a $200 baggage charge. Steve Turner of Travel with Guns spoke to the agent and we showed her on the United website that the limit for first class international was 70 pounds. She didn't want to hear it and was about as rude of an agent that that I have ever met. I bit my tongue, stayed calm and paid the additional $200 to deal with when I got back. Steve then spoke to a United agent on the phone and they said to go to Customer Service representative in San Jose and get a refund. Unfortunately, the agent said she was customer service. In addition United has a baggage agreement with Condor Airlines and she could have checked my baggage through to Arusha, but said she couldn't because it was a

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: None. Everything was Aces. Camps, staff, PH.
Highlights of Hunt: Taking almost all of the Masailand species that I was after. We hunted hard everyday and did the majority of the hunt on foot stalking animals the way I like to hunt. We stayed in 3 main camps and 2 fly camps, depending where we were in the block and what animals we were after. I can't say enough positive things about the hunt and the operation.
Equipment Recommendations: Good elk/sheep boots if hunting any of the species on the mountains. Rain gear is a must depending on the time of year you go. A few climbs were similar to climbs I have made after sheep and goats. Be in shape, if you want to give yourself the best opportunity to hunt a lot of top quality trophies you are going to have to work hard for it.

This hunt contained two parts, easy plainsgame hunt for species and tough hunt for buff and bushbuck on mountain.For mountain hunt need to have good phisical condition and to be ready for unusual long shot for buffalo hunt. It was my sixth buff, the best trophy and most unusual experience for this hunt.Thanks TWS I got great hunt.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I thought your readers might be interested in what I consider to be an emerging opportunity in Tanzania. I just returned from a two week safari in the Selous with Tanzania Wildlife Company. I had a very successful hunt taking a 39-inch buffalo and a variety of plains game, including a wonderful 34 ½ inch eland. The quantity and quality of game was just fabulous.

Tanzania Wildlife Company has been around for a long time. However, the company has recently come under new management. The camps are absolutely fabulous and are perhaps the best in all of Africa. Everything is brand new including vehicles, tents, generators, furniture; I mean everything. Each tent is equipped with showers and flush toilets; and each vehicle and PH is equipped with a satellite phone. The food and drinks were outstanding as was the entire camp experience. It's hard to imagine a better setting.

Jack Brittingham is a well known name in the hunting world and your readers may associate him with huge whitetail deer. He has lent his considerable hunting and conservation expertise to Tanzania Wildlife Company. He's working with Leon Lamprecht who runs the company. Brittingham is very excited about the possibility of bringing strategic wildlife and conservation practices to Africa. The company is engaging in a number of major conservation practices that will surely have an impact on the quality of the game including the funding of anti-poaching teams aggressive controlled burning and a deliberate effort to limit the take of game in all the areas they control. They restrict their harvest to fully mature animals and greatly limit their take to a number well below their allotted quota.

Brittingham was actually in camp for part of the time while I was on my safari and it was exciting to hear him talk about all they have planned. He has been very successful in the US with his conservation practices on elk and whitetail deer and you can sense his enthusiasm about what they're doing in Africa. During the 2006 safari season, they greatly reduced the amount of game taken and engaged in a number of controlled burns. Given the magnitude and quality of the game I saw on my safari, it's truly exciting to think about what might happen in 2007.

During the 2006 season, the company avoided the booking of lion hunts because they wanted to assess the lion population within their areas prior to making any commitments. They did allow the harvest of lions on a chance basis and two monsters were taken in their Rungwa area. The Rungwa area is famous for its huge-maned lions and I personally saw a fabulous lion in the Selous, though I was not hunting lion. During the 2007 season, they do plan to book a limited number of lion hunts and it will be exciting to see what they take.

The company controls three areas in the Selous (MA1, U3, LU4), one in Rungwa (Ikili) and one in the Lake Natron area. While my experience was in the Selous (in MA1), the camps are the same quality in all their areas.

The total cost of my safari was about $34,000 plus trophy fees. This included air charter to my hunting area. While trophy fees in Tanzania are a little on the high side, readers can expect one of the most luxurious tent camps imaginable in one of the remotest, game-rich areas on the plant. I would highly recommend this hunt to anyone without reservation. All of the PH's were tremendous and I greatly enjoyed my time with PH Mark Radloff. I would be happy to visit with anyone about my great safari.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
As a long-time subscriber to The Hunting Report, I hope you don't mind some elaboration on the enclosed hunt report relative to a recent Tanzanian safari.

I just returned from an excellent hunt in the Selous, conducted by the Tanzania Wildlife Company. Long-time African hunters may remember this company as Tawico, which had a long if somewhat checkered history in Tanzania. For several years, up until 1999, Tawico was owned by the Tanzanian Government as an experiment in a locally owned and managed outfitting business. While well-intentioned, the experiment met with limited success due to a number of factors, not the least of which was a reluctance of foreign hunters to do business with an African-owned firm with little representation abroad.

The rights to Tawico were subsequently acquired by a Tanzanian group of Middle Eastern origin, and managed by a different Tanzanian hunting company.

I'm happy to report that the Tanzania Wildlife Company has experienced a remarkable rebirth. It is now 50 percent owned by a prominent American hunter, and the changes are dramatic. TWC's concessions include well over one million acres in the heart of the Selous. The company has built three superb camps, two of which I visited. The new ownership has invested heavily, evident in its impeccable tented camps and new facilities, even including a brand-new fleet of Land Cruisers fresh from the factory.

While Tanzanian camps are known for luxury and comfort, the influences of American investors and American preferences are obvious here. Every client receives their own satellite phone upon arrival. A pair of bathrobes is hanging in the tent for the clients' use, reminiscent of a fine hotel. Virtually all the native staff speaks at least some English, and is extensively trained to accommodate the desires of foreign hunters. There is even Internet access in the Madaba camp, which I promptly dubbed the Madaba Internet Café. Hunters are met the minute they step off the plane, and assisted and cared for every minute they are in Tanzania.

This was my 10th hunt in Africa, and while I have had the privilege of staying in many excellent camps, I have to say that the quality of the food, liquor and attention to detail was the best I have experienced.

As to the hunting, the American investor has insisted that no more than 30 percent of the allowable game quotas will be taken initially. The intent is to build and maintain trophy quality to a level "superior to anywhere else in the Selous." Game and available species are plentiful. Very few roads traverse these vast concessions, and while I was there the South African camp manager and his staff were busy trying to create additional access, since there are areas so remote no one has hunted them or even knows what they hold.

The company is managed in Tanzania by Leon Lamprecht, a PH I first met in 1992. It employs several capable PHs from Zimbabwe, South Africa and Tanzania. In addition to the Selous concessions, TWC has concessions and camps in Masailand and Rungwa in southwest Tanzania. Bookings and financial transactions are handled in Texas, coordinated with the company's Arusha headquarters run by Lamprecht's wife, Christelle.

I thought that the American investment in a major Tanzanian safari business and the positive changes it has brought might be of interest to you or to anyone who remembers the old Tawico.

Gerenuk - Availability:
Game Condition Comments: The Buffalo and Lion in Rungwa Ikili are still exceptional. Leaopards have been pounded. The plains game was abysmal. The former management abused this premium concession horribly. Thankfully the management group of Jack Brittingham is very serious about their conservation ethic. They have severely curtailed the harvests in all of their concessions and are allowing game stock to recover. At the sight of any vehicle, regardless of the range, the plains animals were in a full run. Antipoaching will now occur year round with this group also. They (Jack and Leon) were gracious enough to honor my hunt booked with the old outfit. As a matter of fact, I was the only lion hunter hosted by the new company this year. I was treated like a king. I am grateful that I was not forced to hunt a second rate Open Area which was offered by the former group as a substitution hunt. The game will be under far superior stewardship and will benfit greatly from the new conservation ethic, rather than the old pillage mentality of the old group. Rungwa Ikili will continue to be the supreme lion concession in Tanzania. The other game should recover quickly. TAWICO is definately in this for the long haul and I cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone serious about hunting a fair chase excellent lion and buffalo.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Previously stated plains game.
Highlights of Hunt: The predawn roaring of two maginificent lions on the morning I took mine. Both were premium maned lions, and I simply selected the darker one. Hunting with Hillary Dafi who is the finest of PH's.
Equipment Recommendations: Mints for your own pillows, otherwise the splendor of the hunting camps was simply beyond imagination. Five stars simply does not do justice to the quality of the camps, equipment and service of the staff. Craig and Andy were the camp managers for Rungwa and Natron and were both attentive and excellent company. Leon is the overall manager of the outfit and obviously has his ducks in a serious row.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? The finest lion hunting anywhere in Africa. Truly the best of a bush hunting experience.
