    Just returned from a 10 day safari with Huntershill. This game farm is very large which is just what I was looking for. The main property surrounds most of a small mountain range. The abundance of game was truly amazing! Herds of Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Blesbuck, Impala and Springbuck of many varieties. Kudu, Sable, Giraffe, Zebra, Rhino, Baboon, and many many more.

    The lodging is First class. Max the chef prepared sumptuous meals. My PH Jean-Pierre (JP) Du Plessis and his team placed me in position to take only Gold Medal Trophies. Most of which I was able to take when I could do my part.

    If your looking for a truly memorable safari on a truly beautiful property I highly recommend Huntershill Safaris.

    Awesome Trophies Michael Congrats on a great hunt and that Black Wildebeest is a Monster! Hope you don't Mind but I'm going to add just a little more to show the folks what great people we have on this forum.

    Michael Hubbard, the headmaster of Cedar Ridge Middle School in Logan Utah, came to hunt at Huntershill in Eastern Cape. Before he came, Michael and his students raised $1000 as a donation to Mazomhle home based care center in Sterkstroom. Here Michael is handing over their donation to Unathi, chair lady of the organization and Doris, one of the caregivers.
