Looks like you had a great trip. Wife and I hunted with Tholo in '18. Loved every minute of the hunting. Took every animal I was after. Camp was great, PH was great and so was our San tracker and driver (Charles and Sam). Food was good but not great. No biggie, though. Accommodations were quite nice at 'Hippo Camp'. From out of the dark every morning, a woman's pleasant, high-pitched voice called out: 'KNOCK KNOCK!" Nice, if kind of weird wake up call.
Are Riann, Stefan and Steven still PHing there for Clive? We had Christo and we hit it off great. Great dude and great hunter and teacher. I don't think he's with them anymore. He used to PH for Calitz for elephant and other big stuff.
For me, some of the most fun I had was knocking down about ten guinea fowl with Clive's old 20 ga double he let me borrow when Christo told him he had a bird crazy guy in camp. About 1 out of 3 of the old shells he gave me didn't fire, but that just made it all the more interesting.
And yes, prepare yourself for sticker shock on getting your stuff shipped home. It cost me about 75% of the whole safari tab just to get my raw shipment in. Ouch.
Thanks for sharing.
