    For what its worth.

    Lots of donations to local SCI chapters.

    I have read one local report that was superlative. First time bow hunter that enjoyed himself and wants to return.
    Hannes family has local connections.

    Anyone else have any info? I'm also considering a safari with Limcroma in the near future.

    I have two friends who went with them last year and they were very impressed and pleased. I have been corresponding with them for a trip in 2013.

    Limcroma is OK

    I hunted with Hannes 10 years ago this August. Fine person, good hunter, and personal friend. He has a good farm and lots of concessions. If you like, I can email you a PowerPoint presentation of the plainsgame.safari H Sterling Burnett and I did with Hannes.

    My wife and I hunted with Hannes in 2010. We are headed back for 12 days this July. I can't say enough about Hannes and Limcroma. They are first class and you will not be disappointed!

    Hi JacoS. I tried to send you a PM but for some reason I'm not allowed to send a PM to you. I'm interested in what you have to say.....

    Hello lpace,

    You can check with Jerome about trouble with your PMs. I'm sure he can help...

    As far as JacoS, and Limcroma, Jaco Strauss used to work for Hannes at Limcroma for several years until he went out on his own. It's very likely that he is busy with clients and hunts right now as it is the peak of hunting season in Africa. We usually don't hear much from Jaco until hunting season is over.

    In the meantime, my name is Dan Leahy, and I represent Limcroma Safari here on AH.com. I do my best to respond to client questions when Hannes is unavailable.... This is an extremely busy time for all of the African outfitters. If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to email or call my cell directly if your PMs are not working. It would be my pleasure to chat with you.

    Kind regards, Dan

    Awesome folks at Limcroma. Warm, welcoming, and accommodating in every way. My family had a great safari with Hannes. Can't wait to go back!

    Joe,
    I hunted with Limcroma in 2014. Great time.
    They can accommodate a huge variety of hunting desires.
    Big animals in Limpopo.
    Call Dan Leahy, he has all the info you could ask for.
    Have a great trip !!!
