    While planning my first trip to SA Eastern Cape I came upon this great site. I will be traveling with my wife and two sons 9 & 11 years old in April 2012. I will be hunting the following plains game for 10 days: Kudu, Bushbuck, Impala, Zebra, Blesbuck and Springbuck. We have narrowed our choice of Outfitter down to three, all highly recommended.

    sounds like a great trip, the cape has some excellent animals, might want to kkep your eyes open for a mountain reedbuck, they are all over the cape and it a prety neat species.

    Family trip should be a lot of fun.
    My cousin went when he was 12 and he still has great memories.
    You have lots of time for your trophy list.
    You found a great site and it will help you immensely.
    You may also find some other options for your list of choices right here.....
    good luck.
