An outstanding hunt!

The PHs were extremely professional, hardworking and great to hunt with. The quality of game was superb. The hunting areas were diverse and beautiful. The outfitter’s gear (trucks, rifles, etc) was high-end and top quality. The lodging was excellent with great hospitality.

N/A - I enjoyed every bit of it.

Buffalo and Nyala

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to visit Africa several times now from Namibia, to South Africa and Mozambique. Hunting has been hands down the best experience we have ever had. Gerrie knows his animals, their habits and their temperament. For example, while close to an elephant in Kruger (on a tour not poaching!! he was telling us everything the bull was going to do, before the bull did it. While hunting with Gerrie the number of buffalo and other game we saw is very impressive. We saw huge kudu, my wife harvested a beautiful Nyala which was a target animal and I shot a huge buffalo, another target animal. Gerrie does everything in his power to make sure you are safe, you’re happy, and that you are successful. Gerrie’s wife Corne and the rest of the family also make you feel at home, welcome and treat you as if you’re a part of the family. Corne also surprised us with a wonderful river cruise where we saw croc’s, elephant, kudu, giraffe and several other species. It was a great time. The food and accommodation is great as well. We were treated like kings and queens. I could go on forever about Gerrie and Corne and how great they are and how good of a time we had. But, you need to go there and experience it yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

Had to go home
