This DVD for the Big Four (no rhino) is set in Tanzania, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe. As with most SCP products, the footage is very good and it there is dramatic music to complement the pictures. Besides the heavies, we see crocodile along the Cahora Bassa, some antelopes, zebras, etc., shot mainly for bait or camp meat. It is interesting to see the varied terrain in these countries, some of it very densely vegetated, some of it open, but in all cases game rich, in fact, amazingly so. Given all the negative worldwide press about hunting in 2015, it takes a few minutes of watching this DVD to realize how lucky we hunters are to be living in this age and how much good hunting there (still) is on a worldwide basis.
A total of fourteen hunts are depicted. Some are with double rifles, most with bolt actions; some are father-and-son hunts; and some are single individuals. The thread that links them is the big game of Africa they all desire to hunt: Cape buffalo, elephant, lion, hippo, and leopard. Sometimes the game is right there only a few hundreds of yards after leaving the road, and sometimes it takes hours and even days of tracking to find the right trophy, but in all cases each episode ends in a successful hunt. No time is wasted on impalas and springbucks, so if you like claws, teeth, horns, and tusks, you will find them aplenty in this DVD.
