Return to the camp for shower and then drinks by the fire before your three-course dinner with wine. Overnight tented camp Kiboko.

Afternoon we will arrange a clay shooting competition, after which we will set up one last drive for the Francolin. Dinner and overnight tented camp, Kiboko.
Day 5: Transfer to new shooting block, where fly camp has been set up the previous day. This new block offers a new quarry, the vulterine Guinea Fowl. Larger more wary individual. Depending on transfer times either the afternoon at leisure or a short drive for Francolin.
Day 6: Up early in pursuit of the Guinea fowl. Again as the temperature rises we will move onto the Francolin drives. Breaking cover they will perform much like an English Partridge, both fast and agile. Return to the camp for lunch. Late afternoon out after Guinea fowl. Return to camp for dinner and tales around the fire.
