    Welcome, you will get lots of help here Also ask any questions you want and the knowledgeable folks here will be more than will to answer you. I haven't hunted with those outfits but others here have and they will chime in shortly.
    2 things to remember-
    1) the planning really is half the fun and-
    2) read my signature line :)

    Hi Michael,

    I had my first african hunt last year with KMG safaris. It was only 3 days, but it was amazing. we where 2 couples where the guys hunted while the girls was entertained by the camp staff. We had lunch and dinner together with the girls in beautiful scenery. After those 3 days there I havent thought about anything else than coming back to hunt there again. Guess what, in 1 month I am going down there for a week of hunting again :) I have also talked to 3 other Norwegians that Marius have guided tha last year. Everyone had a blast:)

    If you do a search here on the forum you will find a lot of positive reviews from guys who have hunted with him recently. Yet to see someone who didnt have a great time.
    Heres a link for my report

    http://www.africahunting.com/south-africa-hunting-reports/7651-hunting-report-kmg-safaris-eastern-cape.html
    If you have any questions just send me a PM:) Also send Marius a PM if you have any questions. I was and still am a rookie-hunter and had a million questions. He answered them all and more importantly in a swift manner!!Good luck buddy:D

    Hi Michael,
    I am from Australia and hunted with a mate with KMG in May 2013.
    We had the time of our lives and Marius and his team went the extra yards to make sure we harvested the best trophy's available.
    My mate sprained his ankle and thought his hunting was over but all credit to Marius he was still able to get us up on to and take top class trophys.
    We will be going bagk to Africa with KMG IN 2015 cannot recommend highly enough :)

    Welcome i have heard great things about all of them. I don't think you could go wrong with KMG. Do some research on them as well as make a plan on what animals you want and email for a package. See what is to offer.

    I have hunted all over on many guided trips and I have nothing but the highest praise for Maruis at KMG. It was the trip of a lifetime and he is 100% ethical in his hunting and business approaches.

    Read about my trip here http://www.africahunting.com/south-...-safaris-7-day-plains-game-=-outstanding.html

    If you want to talk about my trip in person feel free go to my website and get the phone number and call me.

    I have nothing but the highest praise for Marius as a PH, a businessman and most importantly as a person.

    Everything good at the moment weather is starting to warm up (Spring here at the moment) and our valley is lush, snakes will start to move shortly.
    Yes, pig are great fun to hunt.
    I am from a bit further South in the state of Victoria where we hunt a lot of Sambar Deer.
