    Hi guys...and gals!

    I am wondering if this is a great deal, that I have been offered,and am considering right now.

    8 days hunt, all the usual transfers, food etc....a 13-14 foot crocodile, giraffe, and hippo hunt in RSA...for $15,950

    Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated, PM me even if you prefer.

    Regards! and thanks in advance.

    I would say if the place and references all check out and your happy with it, go for it...All considering, seems like a good price for what trophys fees are included.

    This site and The Hunting Report.com are the two best sites bar none. Vet a company through both sites and if everything is positive you should be fine. Good luck on your upcoming hunt!

    Sounds like the deal of the century.
    Look at average trophy fees and day rates to compare.

    Get references and check them out fully for sure.

    Just make sure some of these hippo hunts are night hunting with a spotlight if you are ok with this then it is a good deal. Also make sure you will be able to export the Hippo and that it is not only a damage control permit.
