    We would like to thank everyone at Numzaan Safaris for an incredible hunt. We met our P.H. Tonie at a Sci banquet a few years back. After booking the Hunt we were in constant contact with Isabelle at the office, all emails and phone calls were answered and returned very quickly. We run a very busy taxidermy studio and it is very hard for us to get away, and after a couple of years of planning we finally were able to go. We were picked up at the Airport in Johnannesburg, South Africa by Tonie. He was more then helpful. His knowledge and skill during the hunt was impressive. The entire staff, accommodations , food and quality of animals exceeded all our expectations. There was also a group of 9 people also from Wisconsin there that we got to know! Everyone seemed to be having a great time! We look forward to going back in the very near future. If anyone has any questions please do not hesitate to give me a call at 715 209-7329 or email me at hntrpro@yahoo.com.

    Hi Jacques

    It was very nice to meet you as well. We had a Blast. We plan on mounting the lioness climbing the tree, just like the Hunt. Thanks for all your help

    take care

    Congratulations fellow Wisconsin hunter. Looks like you fulfilled some dreams.
    Did you take along and Green Bay Packer shirts or hat to tip the staff?

    Hi Jerome,

    We had a great time, we deal with a lot of taxidermy clients that hunt Africa. There are a lot of horror stories out there.

    Best Regards
    Steve
