We have one opening remaining for a hunt in Africa in 2021 in early November. Believe me when I say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity: hopefully, we’ll never again shut down hunting for a whole year like that. Fortunately, we got a lot of rain over there this past year, so game populations in general and the numbers and quality of trophy bulls in particular swelled past anything we’ve ever seen in the past. THIS is the year to come over if you want a BIG buffalo, wildebeest, waterbuck, impala, or kudu.

Every hunt so far in 2021 has been outstanding and it normally gets better and better until the dry season ends in late November. So, whoever books for early November should have the hunt of a lifetime. We can do plains game, buffalo, or a buffalo/plains game combo hunt in November.

As always, I’m offering a special bonus to podcast listeners who book a hunt with me. Contact me directly for details at john at thebiggamehuntingblog.com or visit bestsafarihunt.com to check out our hunting packages. Somebody’s going to have a great hunt this November and it might as well be you!
