    Default SOUTH AFRICA: richard holmes safaris

    hello folks, im new to this site so please forgive me is this question has been asked before. I am interested in any information on Richard Holmes Safaris in the eastern cape of africa. I have contacted nearly every reference that is listed on his web site and every person has had a absolute great time and experience. i am interested in anyone elses experience or opinions about this safari company, particulary anyone that may not be on his reference list for what ever reason. He offers some really affordable hunts listed under his "hunt package" that no other safari company seems to even come close to. Like i mentioned all his references seem to check out, just seeing what you folks think. thank you.

    Welcme Idahohunter,

    I have spoken to Richard in this year. One of their concessions is owned by Peter Flack, renowned businessman , conservationist, and hunter... He(Richard) seemed pretty starightforward and forthcoming about everything we spoke about.

    There is information/threads about 'richardholmes safaris' on this forum.

    Enjoy your hunts.

    Well, I know a number of people from my home state that have hunted with him. He usually donates plenty of hunts to many hunter conservation groups in the area. I have never heard anything bad.

    Dear Idaho Hunter,
    I have a Safari booked for February of 2014 with Richard Holmes Safaris.
    This outfitter was recommended to me by the owner of the gun club where I shoot. He is a former member of the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) unit with which I now work, so I take his recommendations quite seriously, and have booked accordingly.
    I would be happy to provide my feedback to you after my return but, in the mean time, I will quote him - "if your wife goes along and wants fine bone china and 5,000 count linens, then this isn't your safari, but if you want a pleasurable experience, hunting with a straight-up outfitter, and a great PH, then this is your guy. I warn you that his wife's cooking will put a few pounds on you."
    I hope this helps,
    Oso Polar
