    Post SOUTH AFRICA: adansonia safaris

    I recently went on an 8 day African safari with Adansonia Safaris with my cousin. Owner Mof Ventor and PH Stehan were wonderful. This was my first African safari and my cousin's second. The food and accomodations were great. I was able to take an implala, a 35" gemsbuck, a 58.5" kudu, and a 32" waterbuck. My cousin took a sable, waterbuck, reedbuck, bushbuck, and a nyala. We had a blast and i know this was my first african safari but i would highly recommend Adansonia Safaris. I've attached pictures of my trophies and i'll answer any questions anyone might have about my experience at Adansonia Safaris

    Welcome to AH brtstew937.

    Congratulations on your success.
    Nice deep curls on that Kudu and a good Waterbuck to boot.

    I went with Brett on this safari and it was my second trip to South Africa. Owner, Mof Venter and his PH Stehan really put us on the game. Brett had an unbelievable safari and his waterbuck was the largest one ever taken by a client in Mof's 17 years of outfitting. The 58.5" kudu was something to see and Brett's pictures just don't do it justice!! I've attached another picture because an animal that size deserves it. These are definitely gold medal class triophies.

    I shot a 36" sable, a 28" Nyala, a nice reedbuck, bushbuck, and waterbuck. We had some extra time to visit the white lion park as well as catch an elephant ride.

    The food was absolutely terrific and the lodge was first rate. Some of you may have read on this site that their main camp burned to the ground last year but they are back up and running with a first class outfit. Listen, we all go to Africa for different reasons, to rest, to relax, and mostly to hunt. Mof will make sure you have a great safari. I am already trying to book a return trip next year.

    If you want a reference for Mof Venter or Adansonia Safaris, do not hesitate to contact either one of us. I highly recommend his operation.

    Congrats to both of you and welcome to AH Brett. Kudu is killer and Waterbuck as well. Mstewart44 that Bushbuck is awesome, couldnt be worn much heavier than that.
    The journey is the reward.

    Nice hunt. The only thing I see wrong is that you are not smiling with the Kudu!!
