Thumbnails - Hunting in South Africa, Kudu, Oryx and Impala

This trip to South Africa was for hunting. I was after a kudu and my friend Don was looking for an impala. Most of the hunting time was spent at Matombu Kamp (www.matombu.co.za) which is off of highway N11 about 40km north of Middelburg, Mpumalanga Province. Because the kudu proved to be very illusive we also visited two other game reserves in the Loskop Dam area. It took eight days to track down a kudu. The hunt was arranged through Kukuzans Hunting Safaris (www.kukuzans.co.za) who provided a professional hunter/guide, a tracker and other support staff.
