June 21010 Safari with my son. Looking for recomendations on outfitters. Thanks in advance.
Where and what in Africa? I did a plains game hunt in Namibia in 2007, fantastic place, very safe, great animals.
PM me for more details if you want. There are thousands of outfitters over there.
Would love the infor. South Africa, Namibia or Botswana are what I am looking at.
In regards to your search for an African Outfitter, this all hinges on the species you are after. Of course, alot of outfitters can accomodate you after multiple species, some are not indiginous to the area where they are located.. If you are after a general bag of plains game, i have a number of contacts in South Africa that would fit the bill nicely. If interested, drop me a line and we can discuss this in more detail.
I am based in South Africa, 24 speciec year round, long range, short range, bow or black powdergun). Will get you in and on the Game!!
American ref. available.
Longest kill 425 meters .308 Win.
Best kill,Kudu running 361 meters .308 Win

Hunted in Namibia in 2005 with Kalahari Hunting Safaris. I can not recommend them at all. They have a ranch in Aroab and they also hunt in the Khomas mountains.
Contact Jack Atcheson and Sons, out of Montana. Speak to Keith Atcheson. My buddy and I have used them since the 80's with great success. Keith is an Africa specialist. There are a lot of horror stories with African safaris. Your outfitter is critical.
Hunting in Africa is easy, and animals plentiful. "Toyota Safari". Trouble is clients are taken as suckers. With reputed outfitters, you should get most of desired animals trophy quality. But expect to pay more than agreed upon, somehow or whatever. Best time to hunt is May thru June. After that it can get pretty cold the further south you venture. Since May is some time ahead, I recommend that you join the Safari Club International, and go to their annual meet in Las Vegas in late January. Don't be in a haste to book, but let it mellow in. Talk to guys you meet and inquire how the outfitter is. On the whole, I enjoy hunting with American and Canadian outfitters more.
SCI or Dallas Safari club can give yo some great recommendations
Last year I was in South Africa and hunted with Johan Dreyer for 10 days. I stayed at their Tuskers Lodge near Grahamstown in Easter Cape region.
I hunted with my S&W 629 only, and got ten non-tropy animals. This was a very nice huntingtrip, with highly skilled and nice PH and trackers.
I highly recomend to hunt with them. I hunted four different game ranches , dependent on which animal to hunt.
I will hopefully hunt with Dreyers in 2014, if my plan succeed
I am booked for plainsgame safari in South Africa for May/June 2013 after a lot of reseach we booked with www.cruisersafaris.com .Read their newsletter and their web site and contact their references and decide yourself.
We are sponsors of this site- let us know if you still need help with a Safari.
Thank you, Harald, for the kind words! While we accept the compliment of animals being plentyful in South Africa ( it reflects on good management and a sustainable utilisation policy ) I reject the generalisation that hunting here is "easy". Such an opinion is normally formed from hear say or very limited experience of African hunting. Anybody who calls hunting a buffalo in the Zambezi valley thickets , baiting a leopard, tracking a tusker , stalking a vaal rhebuck in the Winterberg mountains or closing in on an old kudu bull in the Fish River valley bushveld "easy" has either never done it or hunted with an extremely competent PH and tracker. The beauty of Africa is that it offers something for everybody's ability and finances and the difference between being a very happy hunter and disgruntled one is choosing the ideal compromise between your expectations and budget as well as having a positive attitude.. That ,and the right, ethical outfitter of course.
