Peter Flack is an experienced African hunter and writer whose travels on the Dark Continent set him far above the pack. This DVD takes the viewer to the Ennedi Mountains and the Sahara Desert for Barbary sheep and dorcas gazelle, the Sahelian region around Gos-Beida, for western kudu and red-fronted gazelle; and then to the Aouk River, for western roan, korringum and Nigerian bohor reedbuck. Please note that this DVD is only 25 minutes long and was produced using the technology available at the time. Since then significant improvements have been made.
This short film is Peter Flack’s attempt to capture the essence of his safari for his family. As such, it is much more than a collection of one-shot animal kills. This is a record of his safari as a whole: the camps, the staff, the habitats of the region, including its flora and fauna and, of course, the hunts for the unusual animals he pursued. It provides an excellent reference source for anyone contemplating a hunt in this country and will help the viewer decide if this kind of hunt is for him or her and, if so, what rifles, ammunition, preparation, clothing and equipment are necessary. A must for African hunting enthusiasts.
