Cruiser Safaris 7-09-11 -7-24-11
Just returned from 10 fabulous days at Cruiser Safaris. I took an 84 year old family friend (Chuck) and we had a wonderful time. Cruiser is located near Thambazini in the Limpopo province. I must say that dealing with Cruiser Bob (their US contact) was a real pleasure. He walked us through the entire process each step of the way. Upon arrival in Joburg we were met by Afton house representatives. Fortunately, we stayed 2 nights as Chuck's gun did not arrive until the second day. Chuck had always wanted to hunt Africa, specifically a Kudu, and was very anxious to get one. He did not have to wait long. At 11AM on the first morning, his PH Hans, spotted a very large Kudu. Chuck walks with a cane but is a real trooper. He was able to stalk up and make a perfect shot on what turned out to be a 59.5 x 58.5 Kudu. What a monster!!! Late that same day I was able to harvest an old "blue bull" Eland with 34.5 inch horns. It was amazing to harvest such a fine animal at last shooting light after tracking a group of bulls all day. Between the 2 of us we harvested 17 animals. These included 2 wildebeest, 2 waterbuck, 2 zebra, 2 steenbok, duiker, gemsbok, blesbok, impala, and 3 warthogs. I can't say enough good things about Cruiser Safaris. The PH's were top notch, the accommodations were 5 star as was the food. I felt we arrived as clients and left as friends. What more could you want. If your looking for a great plains game hunt, look up Cruiser Safari's website you won't be disappointed.
