Late April saw Tom and Ellen Manning join us on their first African safari. Tom’s nephew, Pete Stout, and wife Elizabeth, were on safari with Professional Hunter, Carl van Zyl, when the Manning’s first arrived in camp. Unfortunately their schedules did not allow for both couples to be with us at the same time, but the few days shared were magical.
What made this safari even more memorable than the fact that this was their first African experience was the celebration of their 29’th wedding anniversary. Keeping that in mind the Manning’s decided on a couple of days of R&R down in Cape Town prior to their hunt.
From Cape Town they caught the 50min connection to Port Elizabeth, where they joined up with Professional Hunter, Gary Phillips.
The plan was to spend a couple of days hunting from our coastal area before heading north. The Manning’s had no set ideas or wishes regards species, they were here to experience Africa and have a good time.
We’d like to invite you to join them as they reminisce and share their safari album with us…
Having arrived back south, it turned out to be the Stout’s last evening in camp. It was cause for celebration and a reminder of the good times!
