VIDEO REVIEW: Jack Brittingham’s Quest for African Big Game

Jack Brittingham hunts all over the world, and thanks to his videos, you can travel with him without leaving the comfort of your living room. Brittinghams Quest for African Big Game series consists of three volumes (available on VHS and DVD). More than ten years in the making, the hunts get more exotic and exciting as Brittingham’s hunting career progresses: Volume 1 covers hunts in South Africa, Volume 2 covers hunts in South Africa and Botswana, and Volume 3 covers hunts in the Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Ethiopia.

Brittingham hunts with archery gear for a wide variety of plains game species in South Africa, then moves on to the Okavango Delta for an exciting quest for an elephant with seventy-pound-plus ivory. Things get even more interesting in Volume 3 as the hunting party pursues bongo, mountain nyala, and giant eland. It’s rare to find so many different hunts for so many different species in a single video series, which is one of the things that makes these shows so fascinating. The videography is excellent, and the shots of the wildlife and scenery will whet the viewer’s appetite to follow in Brittingham’s footsteps.

These videos provide an exciting look at some of the wildest places left on the African continent and allow viewers to experience the thrill of the hunt from an up-close-and-personal perspective. Order these videos online from jackbrittingham.com.-Diana Rupp
