  Almost every hunter wants to take a trip to Africa, and on this show  Hovey Smith takes you complexly through the process from making initial contacts with a Safari company the year before, getting there, what to expect  and includes some real-time audio of actual hunts.

Muzzleloaders used on first African hunt.

  Always providing the unexpected, Hovey takes his game on his first trip in 2004 with a muzzleloading rifle, smoothbore and pistol and on his second one in 2009 he uses a Traditions double-barreled .50-caliber over/under muzzleloader named Rex. To provide some up-to-date input on conditions he did an interview with Travis Anderson (208) 322-5902 of Bushmen Safaris ( and Bushmen has for nearly 40 years specializes in archery hunting (bow and crossbow) and pioneered archery hunting in South Africa. Crossbows were legalized for hunting about six years ago.

Author and Earnst Dyason with their buffalo killed by the PH at a range of about 5 yards when it charged. Both are still a bit giddy from the experience.

  Earnst and Marita Dyason operate Spear Safaris which is also located in the Limpopo Province. They, like most South African outfitters, offer first-class individual bungalow accommodations, very high quality meals, side trips for non-hunting members and encourage family participation. These are not just “guy” events and hunting options are available for very nearly all ages.
