    Some Photos from Africa (Photo Heavy)

    Some photos the wife and I have taken from Africa, most in and around Kruger National Park, the kkudu being fed is at my parents bach that borders on the park and the pool is at Ngwenya Lodge (awesome place) on the banks of the Crocodile River.

    This batch is from a 5 day foot safari we took in Umfalozi, best holiday ever, sleep out in the open, bath in the river, were charged by elephant and buffalo and saw Leopard huntin Nyala on foot, would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a real African bush experience, absolutely kills a game drive! Not too many game photos here as the camera was pretty poor at anything other than right in front of you! Note the crocodile in the photo os us swimming, only noticed that after we uploaded the photos at home!

    Hey Tobes, have eaten croc, not really to my taste as its quite fishy, lions are a carnivore and as such not great eating, some hunters have tied it but I never have!

    The top ones are all in and around Kruger, north east of South Africa, the lower ones were Hluhluwe/Umfalozi in Northern Natal, yeah, heaps of fun especially the foot safari, nothing like being 5m from an elephant while its walking through your camp and you are sleeping under the stars!

    Nah mate, never had the desire to hunt a croc, only dangerous game I would like to take is a Buff, but that costs big $!

    Mostly plains game, Impala, Duiker, Kudu, Bushpig, Bushbuck, Blesbok, porcupine and Monkey (more pest control than hunting) and a lot of bird shooting, Gineau Fowls, Sandgrouse etc.

    I never knew you could shoot monkeys but now I kinda want to. Kudu are pretty awesome looking animals. Have you shot a warthog?

    Nope, done most of my hunting on my uncles game farm and the warthogs were almost like camp pets, seemed a bit unsporting! Shot a good few bushpig though, they are serious beasts!

    Yeah, he is a good size one! how big do you reckon that

    kudu is getting? I estimated close to 50" but I am no expert in judging trophys! Here is another pic of him.

    Nah no worries, most was with a .270, pigs mainly the 30/30 but some with the 20ga sxs with slugs, monkeys .22 and 20ga, they are really challenging and clever prey, they learn so you have to hunt them differently each time!
