    It has taken me awhile to get around to posting a report of our great hunt with Willem at Koedoeberg Safaris and for that I apologize. First , I must say that Willem is and excellent man and a great operator. His willingness to accomodate any request and also offer alternatives for species that proved to be to illusive was very gratifying. It is evendent that Willem cares more about client satisfaction than about the profit margin. Willem's property offers quite a variation of terrain being nestled between to low mountains. The hunt proved to be more difficult than expected , yet still we had great succes. A hardy thank you must go out to Renier and Riccus, our PH's on the hunt, 10 days is not a short time to deal with the same 2 people and your company and expertise were second to none. Dad shot like a pro, with some great shots on animals in the run. Me on the other hand, I could use a little more practice and plan on doing so. Also, I would like to say thank you to Willem's wife for the many outstanding meals we had during our stay. I am busy making a plan to lose the extra pounds I gained. Can't wait to do it all again. Willem, you run a top notch outfit and I will definitely be back in the future.
    Cheers,
    Trent
