Score One For The Good Guys...

Hopefully these concessions will not be released back into the hands of hunting operators but will rather go to photo safari operators.

I'll tell you...when I came across a hunting hide not far from Robin Pope Safaris Tena Tena camp (about a mile outside the park), I really wanted to ask my guide to take me to it so I could burn it to the ground. Common sense, however, prevailed. So whenever a hunting concession is lost it is a very good thing.

Rocco: thanks for posting the info. Hopefully they are not just shifting this to another operator, although it would seem to be better if it is Zambian owned than foreign owned.

I'd love to see some more conversion of hunting to photographic in that area.

Zikomo Safaris is opening a camp there this year. However, there is still a hunting concession. The camp's concession may have been considerably larger if Robin Pope hadn't supported the guy who has the hunting concession.

Here are a couple updates...no lion or leopard hunting in Zambia in 2013 (hopefully it extends beyond then!)

Meanwhile, in Namibia, since, you know, there are nearly as many black rhinos as there are humans, you can legally hunt black rhinos (further into extinction).
