Just got the contract and it looks like I'll be going for 7 days of hunting Cape Buffalo this June in the Omay region of Zimbabwe. That's about 7 hours by car from Bulawayo. Including travel time and overnighting the first and last nights there it looks like I'll be gone for 10 days or so.

After I get a Buff "in the salt" I'll probably pick up an Impala and some other plains game that I haven't already shot.

I have a travel agent trying to get me Business Class tickets using my frequent flyer miles so maybe I won't have to suffer through the 20 hours of flying in the little seats.

I'm jealous! I've been binge reading on Capstick and Roosevelt lately and the dark continent is calling! Will you be using the .375 on the buffalo?

Nice man, nothing beats the rush of an exotic hunt like that. Good luck on getting some cool animals.

I'll be bringing my left handed Winchester Mod 70 in 375 H&H, using my 300 grain TSX handloads. I just ordered a left handed Zastava Mauser in 458 Win Mag but it won't be here in time to go to Africa (this time).

Both rifles are excellent medicine. Have a great hunt, I'm jealous....
