Orvar,

A huge thanks and congratulations to you. You were clearly prepared for this safari, as your shooting and ability to walk long periods made it obvious! Well Done and I look forward to our next hunt in July next year.

Orvar,

Great safari and nice trophies in one of my favorite destinations. A lion as an unplanned add-on! Fantastic.

really glad that you far more get than you can have expected in your wildest dreams.
It's only Thierry's magic

West and central Africa deserve to be hunted, they have a discreet and surprinsing way to keep you adicted.

Thierry, keep on our marvalling at your witchcraft ....................................or talent.

By the by, you never ever opt for the easy way.

Dogcat, we saw tons of buffalo every day. If that's your interest, no issues getting a big old dugga boy.

Congratulations on your Eland and especially on the Lion.

IMO a Western/Central African Lion is a very special trophy.

I needed almost 50 hunting days to get mine in Cameroon.

Wow! A lion as a pick-up extra on quota! Well done. Add to it a damn nice LDE and an assortment of other great Central African trophies = a fantastic safari. Thanks for the report.

Fantastic hunt gentlemen. The Lord Derby Eland is in my opinion the grandest of all antelope trophies, partly due to the effort typically required, and just the adventure of traveling to this part of Africa.

They look magnificent when mounted on a pedestal. Yours would look stunning Orvar.



Beautiful coats on those harnessed bushbuck.

Well done! tu2
