Thread: Africa 2013

    Africa 2013

    Hi Guy’s;

    I appreciate this thread is probably an old cliché, no doubt aired on a number of occasions previous. However me and my old Hunting Pal are looking for a Trip to Africa in2013. Last went to South Africa 2010, Eastern Cape nr Port Elizabeth, a beautifulc omfortable lodge/Game farm. However for this trip maybe looking for something a little different, I’m more for new experiences then returning to old. Perhaps this trip some if not all tented hunting, not adverse to a couple of nights comfort, but as I say experience a different side this time. Possibly Hunt over a larger area, maybe even a Hilly or Mountainous region making up partof the ground, that would I’m sure offer a different prospect.

    This is a genuine enquiry, we are not just Kicking aroundthe prospect, its of case of trying to find the right package.

    Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. When best to go? And where?

    My preference before end of April possibly early May,however if any feedback suggested otherwise, this timing not a necessity.Basically has always looking for a great life experience.

    I didn’t really get the opportunity to take a Kudu last time, however it would be top of my list. This said probably the only Trophy I would be interested in, I’ve got a few “Africa’s” last time, and I’m more than happyto hunt Cull animals.

    Thanking You in advance, look forward to hearing from You.

    Regards;

    Steve.

    Steve,
    Take a look at: shakariconnection.com
    There's enough info on that site to keep you going for a long time. You can email the owner, Steve Robinson, if you need particular information or assistance.
    I've been to Africa three times with him as my PH and can vouch for his operation 100%.

    I have a contact that does proper hunting in SA, not luxury lodges but fly camps, how Africa should be done. He should be able to get you a nice Kudu plus what ever else you are after.

    Drop me a PM with your email and I will get him to contact you.

    Thanks 45, certainly take a look him up on tin'ternet!! Tho Buffalo, Lion & Jumbo dont really float my boat. Fully understand the ethical "Culling" etc, I've never really felt inclined to Hunt any of the so Called Big 5.

    Steve has now retired and is living in Portugal - he has a couple of final hunting commitments in Africa during 2013, after which he is sticking to living the good life in Portugal and hunting the odd wild boar.

    The Shakari Connection will still be kept up though and is a mine of information.

    If you want to hunt the hill country, I'd recommend Dennie Taljaardt of Dubula Mangi Safaris.

    His lodge is near Nelspruit, in the Mpumalanga province up north and he has great hunting grounds in the mountains around the lodge - thick bush country and steep ravines, with excellent Kudu and some of the best Bushbuck I've seen. Dennie is a great PH and a mate (with VERY attractive daughters).

    Whilst it is true that Steve has more or less retired from the hunting/safari side, he knows anyone and everyone connected with hunting in Africa and can put you in touch with suitable companies. His website shakariconnection.com is an invaluable resource.
    I spoke to Steve on Skype today and asked who he would recommend for a hunt such as you require and without hesitation he recommended Dennie Taljaardt, just as Adamant has done. With two such recommendations, you are likely to have a jolly good hunt. (BTW Steve tells me that Dennie is very protective of his daughters and is a crack shot, LOL).
