Safari, Africa & World Adventure
Buffalo hunting in modern Africa has evolved tremendously in the last twenty years, and the changes have only accelerated in the last ten years. It was not that long ago that Mozambique had almost no huntable buffaloes and Uganda was closed to hunting. Nowadays Mozambique is possibly the largest buffalo destination in Africa, and as for Uganda, it has a vibrant program with high-quality Nile buffaloes shot each year. South Africa twenty years ago had very few buffaloes, so hunting for them was restricted; today this country is on its way to becoming a serious buffalo destination. Boddington has hunted in all these places and many more since he wrote Buffalo!, and since much has changed, both in terms of destinations, firearms, and ballistics, an update was urgently needed. Buffalo II! is the answer.
Author Craig Boddington shares a wealth of first hand information on hunting “swamp buffalo” from Mozambique, as well as discussing the importance of buffalo sustainability for generations to come — the how, where, and why of looking for an aged buffalo bull with hard bosses. He also shares his experience with a true, full-blown, pressing-it-home, you-or-him buffalo charge, which is—thankfully—actually very rare. Until recently Craig had never experienced one, so his recollection is firsthand and vivid. The buffalo charge Craig faced was unprovoked, quick, and nearly lethal.
