After several safaris in Africa this was my first with CMS safaris in Dande where I was accompanied by my dear son Carlos Miguel and PH Alan Shearing. After placing the baits on the second and third day, the night came a beautiful lion, quickly the people made the blind, great professionalism commanded by Alan all thought to have success in the hunt, Alan did not eat anything at lunch gave to think that it should be a magnificent animal, we went to the blind at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, there were flies at 5 o'clock and a young leopard entered 5:30 a.m., sing some birds 6 o'clock Alan touched me on the shoulder, I looked at the scope almost at night but I got it see the lion and without wasting time I shot, and saw that it had been a good shot we waited a bit and with the lanterns we left the blind in direction to the river, 70 meters after the bait there was dead the magnificent lion, everyone was happy many hugs a lot of dancing many smiles, and lots of photos was an unforgettable hunt.

Day number 6 we started on Buffalos at 11:30 a.m. I hunted my first buffalo on the seventh day started my son with his buffalo hunt, only on day number 12 I got a magnificent dagga boy. Again I went back to hunting my last buffalo that I just managed to hunt, at 10:30 am on the last day of hunting.

I liked to say that the buffalo hunt was hard but exciting.

These hunts are the true hunters, I wanted to thank the whole organization of CMS safaris, a special thanks to Alan.

This hunt may have ruined me!

I sign up for a Buffalo, Hippo, and Croc hunt, with no Leopard.
In camp, I'm offered a deal on Leopard, too good to pass up, so now I'm Leopard hunting too!
Take my first Hippo, my first Croc, and my first Cape Buffalo! Awesome!
Pick up a great Hyena and Puku along the way; having an amazing hunt!
Checking Leopard baits along the way, and seeing Leopards regularly during the day!
Day 5; Two big male Leopards on our baits!!! Build a blind and sit that night on the bigger cat's bait.
Day 6, in the full morning light, I saw what is, surely, the most awesome thing I've ever seen while hunting; A Huge Tom Leopard standing right in front of our blind, and then walking in front of us on his way over to the bait tree (grumbling all the way; awesome to hear!)
Up the tree he goes; Minutes later I have a trophy of a lifetime laying in front of me!!!
After pics, and checking him over for quite a while back at camp, I could barely stand letting them take him to the skinning shed!

What am I going to do now, that could possibly equal or rival that hunt?
I'm sure I'll try, but I can say, I now fully understand the "Leopard Obsession" (Thanks Buzz!)

Thanks for a life changing hunting experience!

A fabulous hunt! Fantastic accommodations and excellent meals & staff. The concessions were loaded with lots of Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard & Lion. This is my 3rd time to this area and CMS management program is working. Bonus opportunities for Zebra, Sable, Impala, Hyena and Kudu. PHs were top notch and trackers unbelievable.

Fantastic hunt for elephant on foot in Dande East. Wonderful time in two amazing camps with all the comforts that are needed. For the PH (Len Taylor) and trackers hunting seems to be their passion!

The hunt was everything you told me it was going to be (rough, hilly, rugged terrain)you really had to work for every animal harvested but we had a blast!.  You are truly blessed to have such great people working for you. York was so much fun we arrived as strangers and left as old friends. The cooks, server,  trackers, skinner,  and PH were the best I have hunted with in Africa. The food was stunning and so tasty. My only regret is we had to leave that beautiful camp overlooking the Zambezi river! Breathtaking sunsets and hippos calling all night! I will be back with my daughter (just not sure at Mutombo camp) she is Maybe you can keep me in mind I would like to get a large Croc & I would like to get my daughter a Kudu & Leopard. Hope your family is well. Be safe have a great 4th of July!
