    I am not sure if these animals can all be hunted at the same place and free range.Most of the packages I see do not have all these animals so I guess I need someone who could do a package.I have found some will let my son hunt for just trophy fees and others want full fees.I will list the animals I would like two of first 0ne for each of use.I am not looking for world records just good solid trophy class animals.I may only get there once so looking to get the animals I have always wanted.2each kuda,gemsbuck,impala,warthogs.then one each bushbuck, nyala,waterbuck,blue wildebeast,blesbuck,bushpig,zebra.Would like to bow and rifle hunt.I am looking for total cost from airport pick up in africa to return to airport.I would guess we would need 10 to 12 days hunting for all of this.I do not need wine and cocktails just food and hunting.Would like a outside tent type camp with just some good food and great hunting.My son will be 13 when i hope to go.Would need to be when he is off school so like anytime from mid june to end of aug school start back up around sept6.I know this is a tall order as I am looking for alot of animals.This maybe a once and a lifetime trip so that is why I am looking for a one time dream hunt.If I get back then great but want to cover all the bases.Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Hello Billc,

    I was curious is your heart set on the Cape Bushbuck or the Limpopo Bushbuck ? Or doesn't it matter ?

    Hi Billc

    To be perfectly honest here you would not have to travel to different provinces to harvest these species but I would certainly recommend it, this will add days to your hunt but you will also see more and experience hunting each animal in its native habitat.

    I realize that there would be some big costs involved in travelling to two provinces but it would provide you with a great experience that being said.

    I think Natal might be the best place for this hunt, nayal and bushbuck should not be a problem there and you can certainly hunt all the rest of the animals there as well.

    Limpopo might be a good second option kudu and blue wildebeest might be a better hunt the vegetation is nice and thick in some parts and should provide for a thrilling hunt on foot.

    I hope this helps all the best of luck to you and your son!

    Best Regards
    Louis van Bergen

    Hi Billc,

    Im sure Chris would explain it to you well in his PM. Bushbuck are really spectacular animals , however if i must put the cape and limpopo rams in order i would say the cape is my num 1 choice personally ...

    cheers owen

    Free range I think would be difficult especially with your time but behind fence on large tracks of land it can be done between two concessiona that we have. One is a bow only and the other bow or rifle but between the two you will have all the species you have listed.

    Margie you have to read those dates.
    Search out BillC
    Bill won a hunt with his son and was over bugging Jacques earlier this year.
    Not sure if he is going back in 12 though. Maybe....
