This was posted by Andrew Baldry on AR. I am not familiar with Zambia operators; however as I understand it Andrew is one of the good guys and very reputable.

"It would seem that hunting may continue on fenced farms and I think two GMA's have extended leases therefore my thread could be construed as misleading. Especially for the fenced game farmers.For the most free range safari hunting as we know it will cease."

With Zambia and Botswana closed, your best chance for a free range lion is Zim. Leopard hunting can be good there too. Namibia has excellent leopard hunting available. I killed a very good lion in Zim (Matetsi) in 2011 and a very good leopard in Namibia in 2012. Both hunts wre fairly priced when I bought them. My guess is that prices in these two venues will go up. Way up!

Tanzania is still a good venue for cats, but incredibly expensive.

At the DSC convention, there was talk that lions would not be importable into the U.S. after November, 2013. Get 'em while you still can!

Corruption in Africa? Tell me you jest!

And still others were shocked in a Casablanca sort of way:

Captain Renault:
Iím shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!

[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]

Croupier:
Your winnings, sir.

Captain Renault:
[sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.

If they become non-importable in November 0f 13, it is aready too late. It takes over a year to get anything back.
