    Honest, hard working, genuine people-great food-prepared staff-patient with my 10 yr old son-highly selective on animals taken-every animal we came for-beautiful scenery-plenty of animals-what else could you want?

    We spent 11 days with Adolf and Estelle Kleinhans on a safari that was better than i could've imagined. We took multiple (3) impala, (2) blesbok and (2) kudu (including an injured kudu bull that wasn't quite trophy but needed to be taken out). We also took an old scarred gemsbok, wildebeest that went down to the .243, a giant bull hartebeest at 260 yds, worn down springbuck, bushbuck that only had three teeth left and steenbok.

    To fly halfway around the world and be made to feel like you are hunting with friends is a gift. Adolf has it.

    The best part is I left several animals on the wish list so I have a reason to go back!!

    Congrats. Nice trophy picture with the kudu.
    Bushbuck looks to be in pretty darn good shape for dentition like that. Nice trophies.
    Your son looks like he had some fun.
