Lord Derby Eland – Chasing Africa’s Giant Wanderers…

April 23, 2017

There’s something profoundly exciting for even the most seasoned of African travelers when staring down at ones boarding pass for the day….Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg… A short lay over and then onto Libreville, Gabon, and finally onto Douala, Cameroon. For Jeff Edland and Luther Dietrich, my friends from North Dakota, in the United States, it […]Continue Reading

By Professional Hunter, Ross “Stix” Hoole As you look towards your next safari you may not be giving much thought to the Pygmy Antelope of Africa.

The 1% Kudu

March 24, 2017

“As the truck veered slightly to the left, with the edge of the road mere yards away from the hidden drop off and the forested valley below, we weren’t in the mood for the usual mutter and jokes that had accompanied our previous two safaris together.” As the Professional Hunter I was frustrated. I had […]Continue Reading

What People Are Saying

"On my third trip to S.Africa I once again hunted with my great PH Juan MacDonald. A friend once told me: "You can take my wife, but never take my PH or my toothbrush." That says a little bit what a good PH means. This year’s trophies were Zebra, Blesbuck, Mountain Reedbuck and I also got my second of the tiny ten, a beautiful Steenbuck. I really want to thank all of the wonderful staff who took care of us in the camps."

~ Thomas Nyden '13 from

"Thank you all for a fantastic first hunting safari. It was a magic week, I will be back!"

~ Uno Kristiansson '13 from Sweden

"The total safari was all above any expectations! The staff and lodging was professional and very kind, always willing to please. The hunting was very good, conducted in a professional, safe, and fun environment. Our PH T-bone was the best!"
