The 2011 safari season for Chris Weth's Uganda Wildlife Safaris is off to a great start according to the reports made by the first returning hunters.
REPORT FROM CRAIG PHILLIPS

"East African Sitatunga - on first day,
(That never happens to me)".
"Nile Bushbuck - green scored #5".
"Oribi - I have one but this one is 6.5 inches"
"East African Bohor Reedbuck"
"East African Bush Duiker"
REPORT FROM JOHN COLGLAZIER
"Attached are the pictures from my hunt with Christian. We had a great time and were very impressed with the areas".
"East African Sitatunga"
REPORT FROM CRAIG BODDINGTON
"The Kafu River area (concession of Uganda Wildlife Safaris) is SUPERB. It holds hundreds of miles of papyrus-lined rivers with a limitless supply of sitatunga that have, literally, never been hunted. I am convinced this is the best place in Africa today to hunt sitatunga, and I'll be suprised if they don't pull out the world record East African sitatunga in short order. The variety of other game is not extreme, but what there is occurs in plenty. Nile bushbuck and East African bohor reedbuck wander about like goats. Oribi are legion, and there are lots of E.A. bush duiker."
