    There are plenty of great outfitters most guys have never heard of, but do your homework. Get all their references and call them.
    I checked the hunting report and they were no reports on them, good or bad

    ROCKET, you are correct. Johann and Johnnie Van Rensburg owns and runs the outfit. Highly skilled, very friendly people and free range animals like I haven't seen in my life.

    Definitely a go!!!

    Thanks guys .
    From what you have all said they could be a goer , im starting to get to get that fuzzy feeling about hunting with them .
    The couple of emails I have had from them they sound great , plenty of area to hunt plenty of animals and resonably priced .
    Im pretty sure ill hunt with them next for 3 weeks , a few days in the Kalahari culling springbok , 5 or 6 trophies at Ongariwanda then some culling there as well ,
    some bird shooting if pos and a few days r and r ,
    If I drink anymore wine tonight ill ring up and book tonight . Better shut up and cook some dinner .
    Thanks again guys .
    Cheers Dory
