SafariBwana's expedition style "Rough Hunts "
I've always looked to those way out places where only the hardy survive as the ultimate test of a hunters will - not from the point of hardship, but rather from their acceptance that hunting in a vast open uninhabited wilderness is enough reward and the trophy is merely an achievement not a must have.
We offer you the opportunity to experience our Africa in a rougher style, a more authentic or rustic manner of safari – nevertheless a true challenge and adventure. By law we cannot allow you to hunt without a PH so we provide the basics, the very basics and then the rest is up to you. A good PH, a land cruiser, some rudimentary camping equipment, first aid supplies, clean water and dry goods for your trip – naturally trackers and helpers are also present. Sounds very much like a camping set up BUT here's the difference – there is no set camp nor a campsite, no roads where you will be heading, it is just virgin territory with a healthy population of game to seek.
We have over 900,000 acres of open undeveloped hunting land for you to explore – at your own time and your own risks and decisions – bring your own gear, pre order food supplies, load up and head into the bush!
& STANLEY SAFARI EXPEDITION - 2017LIVINGSTONE
"Dr Livingstone I presume" - a tale of possibly the most famous of all the African explorers in the heart of hostile slaving country which turned the obsession and pursuit for the source of the river Nile into one of human endeavor and will to end the most gruesome period of events in modern history - the slave trade.
In a small village on the shores of lake Tanganyika in Tanzania, two white men met in the most unusual of circumstances, one fresh and spirited, the other horrified and defeated . David Livingstone had witnessed the gruesome slaying of 500 women and children by the Arab slavers, had seen his belongings stolen and sold off and was living as a beggar in Ujiji when Henry Morton Stanley found him. Stanleys timely arrival and subsequent companionship with Livingstone raised his spirits and hope resulting in the letter which held the account of the slave slaying at Manyema, an impetus for the abolishon of slavery.
Expedition journals show Stanley gifting Dr Livingstone with an 1860 style repeater carbine in .44 rimfire - while he carried an 1876 Winchester in 45-75. Stanleys favor for these 15 round repeaters probably came from his time in the American civil war and his experience with the Henry 1860 Iron framed repeating carbines. It is believed that Dr Livingstone received a HENRY 1860 RIFLE IN .44 RIMFIRE along with 1500 cartridges from Stanley.
HENRY REPEATING ARMS has kindly donated an original 1860 Henry Carbine rifle to the David Livingstone Museum near Victoria Falls, Zambia. The journey of the rifle will start out near Dr Livingstones grave site at Chitambo's in the North of Zambia and make the journey south through hunting wilderness, then west to the waters of the mighty Zambezi and finally onwards to the town of Livingstone where it will be handed over to the Museum for exhibition.
