    Outfitter: Hartzview Hunting Safaris
    PH: Jacques Spamer
    Location: Northwest Provice of South Africa
    Hunt Duration: October 10 to Oct 20 2011

    Animals Harvested: Kudu, Gemsbok, Blesbok, Impala, Springbuck, Blue Wildebeast, Black Wildebeast, Zebra

    Additional Animals Seen: Rhinos, giraffe, warthog, Cape Buffalo, Black Springbuck, White Springbuck, Nyala, Eland, Red Hartebeast, Sable, Waterbuck

    Quantity of game seen: Unbelievable the number of animals available to hunt. Lots of animals to chose a trophy.

    Style of hunt: Drive on trails until some animals are spotted. Hunt and stalk these animals from the ground. Glass for animals from high hill tops and stalk on foot.

    Weather Conditions: Mostly hot and dry. 2 days when it was very windy.

    Lodge Conditions: Very clean and spacious accomodations. Premises are as advertised. Accomodations are newer and in good repair. Excellent individual chalets with private bathrooms and excellent showers with plenty of hot water.

    Food: Home style cooking of standard beef and chicken as well as the game that has been harvested. Ria is a wonderful cook.

    Camp and equipment: All the trucks/bakkies in excellent condition. Excellent meat locker/cooler facilities to handle all game. Well kept and very clean.

    I strongly recommend this outfitter to all.
