Guns.com’s Kristin Alberts spent two weeks on Safari in South Africa alongside hunting partner Stan Pate. There they harvested 16 animals between them — 13 different species from Springbok to Cape Buffalo and everything in between. Here are a few photos from the adventure.

Since reading Ruark, Hemingway and Capstick while growing up, Kristin Alberts dreamt of hunting the Kudu, the Grey Ghost of Africa. That dream became reality on this Safari, using a Savage High Country rifle in .300 Win Mag, Norma Oryx ammunition and a Bushnell Nitro scope. (Photo: Stan Pate/Guns.com)
