“Randy was shaking like a man with severe hypothermia. It was fantastic seeing him like that, knowing how much it meant to him, and having the excitement overwhelm his self-control……”
But before I get ahead of myself, let’s start at the beginning – long before Randy had even boarded the South African Airways flight in Washington.
During early May I received an email from our good friends Chris and Martie Petersen. They were planning on joining us on safari during late July, bringing along with them Martie’s niece, Cherie, and her husband, Randy. The entire group was planning on doing some form of hunting, with Randy leading the pack on his quest for East Cape Kudu.
Our hunt started in the south from our Coastal Base Camp before heading north to experience the Karoo in all her glory. We took our time making the 3 ½ hour journey north, touring and stopping off along the way in the true spirit of life on safari.
