“There’s not one bad thing I could say about this South Africa safari. The hunting was off the hook, with LOTS of game. The people were great, the PH’s were fun, friendly, and professional. The food was spectacular, as was the lodging. It was the trip of a lifetime for me and my son.” ~Cory Glauner
What you should expect on this South Africa safari
Safari Hunting Method
After breakfast, you will jump in the back of the hunting rig and either drive roads looking for game, or sit in a hide… don’t worry, you will see a lot of game. There is no shooting from the truck. Once an animal is spotted, you will start your stalk. Animals that seem relaxed while you are in the truck become VERY wild once your feet hit the ground. The hunting area is huge, and the species you are hunting will dictate which part of it you are hunting. The PH is knowledgeable, and will be totally focused on your hunting goals.
Once an animal is taken, the staff will be called on the radio to take care of it and get your trophy to the skinning shed. They will take care to properly skin your animal the correct way depending on how you want it mounted. Immediately following your hunt, a taxidermist will collect your trophies and get them dipped, packed and ready for shipping.
There is a roadless area on the backside of the ranch where there are kudu bulls dying of old age…. that intrigues me, and I plan on hunting them soon.” ~Cory Glauner
As a bowhunter, this place is a dream come true. Whether your game is spot-and-stalk, sitting a ground blind, or a mix of both, you will have a blast! You could be stalking game from dawn to dusk if you wished. A truly amazing place to hone your bowhunting skills.
Opinions differ, but we feel that the best time of year to hunt in the Limpopo province of South Africa is late May through August. The later you go the less cover there will be and you will see more game. Honestly though, don’t stress about it too much. Just go! You won’t regret it.
We went in July and it was amazing. Nice and cool weather and not a cloud in the sky. Perfection.” ~Shad Wheeler

Testimonials and Hunt Reports from hunters who have hunted with this PH
I went from being on top of the world, to the pit of despair in about 1.5 seconds. Suddenly I could hear Botes’ (our PH) voice cutting through the fog of disbelief and utter horror, saying “nock another one, nock another one, you got this.” When I snapped out of it I realized the big ol cape buffao bull had only taken a few steps and was now staring right at me, and suddenly everything was back in focus and all the hours of practice and years of hunting kicked in. Next thing I knew I was at full draw and had my pin buried just inside the front shoulder and “Thwack!” the arrow punched clear through, right where I was aiming and within seconds the huge cape buffalo was staggering like a punch drunk prize fighter in the 12th round. I put two more insurance arrows in him, but it was already over. My dream of taking a trophy cape buffalo with a bow was now a reality. As I walked up to him I was in awe of his sheer size and all I could think of was the intensity of his stare as I let that second arrow fly, and how this was a true old warrior who had been the king of his domain. I was overcome with emotion and adrenaline, I hugged Botes, sat down and started to shake like I had hypothermia. This truly was an adventure of a lifetime. [Read More...]
