    Default Bush Breaking Newsletter Wintershoek Johnny Vivier Safaris 7 - 2011

    Welcome aboard our journey, as we bring you up to date with our 7th Bush Breaking Newsletter of 2011. We have received an over whelming positive response, from our clients in regards to the new cyber space technology and manner, that our Bush Breaking Newsletters will be coming through to your PC's from now on... This is wonderful news and a very welcomed breakthrough in communication via connectivity!! Bring it on Cyber Space!!!

    Mention was made in our last newsletter about our planned itinerary for our up and coming USA promotional tour. At this time we would like to mention the cities that we will be visiting during our trip starting January 2nd 2012. San Diego, Dallas, Columbus Ohio, Calgary Canada, Atlanta, Midland Texas, Farmington New Mexico, Albuquerque, Aguascalientes Mexico, Minneapolis, Las Vegas and New York... Phew, busy, busy! It will be fantastic if you are going to be around any of these places that we could perhaps meet during our travels? Drop us a line and let's see if we can make a plan... It would be great to see you!!

    Before we get into all the exciting hunts and superb photos gallery, we must at this time bring you some unfortunate and shocking news!!! Our newly built (only a week old) Gamagara Lodge has burnt to the ground caused by an electrical fault... Devastating news to say the very, very least!

    Our prayers and support must extend out to Hennie and Hannetjie at this time. With Hennie having the determination and drive that he has, work has already begun to pick up the pieces and start to rebuild Gamagara Lodge. We expect to be completed by the end of March 2012 where ALL systems will be a huge GO!! Wiaan counted over 600 Gemsbuck from the chopper 2 weeks ago, with huge specimens of Eland, Waterbuck, Red Hartebeest, Gemsbuck, Springbok, Wildebeest, etc, seen from the air Gamagara here we come in 2012!!!!!!
