Nitro Express Africa’s Black Death -Mark Sullivan
The movie legends are made of, Africa’s Black Death, features over 20 buffalo kills either in complete hunts or in hi-lite footage along with three magnificently maned lion. Never before have audiences been entertained with so much great footage in a single movie. Black Death is forever a part of history.
Black Death was filmed in what is now the “famous” Moyowosi Game Reserve. But, back then the Moyowosi was a little known and seldom visited hunting block. On any given day I would routinely see a thousand buffalo or more in a days hunting. Great maned lion of 10 years of age and older were considered common and every client got one. Unique to the Moyowosi, the lions there seldom fed off a bait. Instead, because game was so plentiful, these big cats simply preferred “fresh” meat to any smelly, “old” bait that I might have offered.
