The 2019 hunting season has been great and on behalf of Harloo Safaris I want to thank all our old and new friends for their loyal support!

2. Family hunt with two old buffalo bulls taken

An old friend had visit us again after 7 years with his family and a family friend that brought her son for his first hunt ever. It was absolutely lovely to see them again and to meet the family friends.

A Very proud dad with his daughter and son sharing the moment

Father and Son pictured below left each get a buffalo. The two bulls were seen on the side of a hill early that morning. We planned the stalk and started the hunt. By this time the bulls knew of our presence and had moved down the hill to a flat area that had cover for them. When we got down to the flat area we spotted the two bulls again and started the stalk.

   

We got within 50 yards from the two bulls but there was no shot because of the brush so we had to wait for them to walk into an open gap. I had already set up the shooting sticks and got dad on them. We watied patiently for about 30 minutes before the bull that we were after entered the clearing. Dad made a perfect shot and ended up getting another round into the buffalo. The buffalo went down about 10 meters from where he was shot the first time. The buffalos mate (the second bull) refused to leave without his friend and was standing waiting for him to get up. This is when dad decided that his son must take the second bull. He made a perfect shot as well and we found both buffalo lying about 40 yards apart.

Both these buffalo were very old. The one the son took had one horn, which he most probably lost  in a fight with another bull over cows.

Picture below Right: Family friends. This was this young man’s very first hunt ever and he was lucky to have his mother with him.

3. First time hunters

This mother and her son joined by the dad shot their first animals ever here at Harloo Safaris.

4. Second leopard sighting on Harloo

We were lucky to spot a second leopard on Harloo. This is a different leopard spotted about 6km away from the other sighting. Although it was in a distance we could get a very good look and appreciate the magnificent cat through our binoculars.


In previous newsletters we have asked a big favour and we want to ask again that you please write something about your experience with us on http://huntingreport.com/enter-hunting-report/. Marketing is costly and business is tough with the political problems and the weak economy. For those who have already posted we thank you. It is truly appreciated!
