Over the course of the past twenty-five years John X Safaris has been involved with Safari Club International. We have not only been members, but have donated from the tiniest of the Tiny 10 to biggest of the Big 5.
Season 2011 saw John X Safaris supporting the SCI Nebraska Chapter once again. We donated 7 Days for 1 Hunter & 1 Observer + Trophy Preparation – Valued at $5000.00
Our hunt went to auction during January 2011 and was bought by the highest bidder, Mr. Heim, with all proceeds going to SCI’s Nebraska Chapter.
It was only a few days later at our annual get together, hosted by Steve and Jill Evers in Omaha, that I met Larry and Rita Heim. Both had hunted in the East Cape on a previous occasion and now were set on heading back during July 2011.
Larry and Rita teamed up with Professional Hunter, Gary Phillips, for their 7 day hunt. Larry’s prime species were Gemsbuck and Kalahari Springbuck, and anything else that he may take a liking too. For Rita this trip provided a superb opportunity to follow her passion for photography, after all base camp was situated on a Big 5 Game Reserve with numerous picture opportunities of wildlife.
