    Andrew Harvey is a very knowledgeable, extremely reliable, highly competent and skillful professional hunter. His employee Peter, who acted as our driver, skinner and tracker, was hardworking and courteous. Together, these two gentlemen produced the most wonderful hunting adventure of a lifetime for my brother and I.

    My brother and I hunted 5 animals each, from 9 different species in 8 days with a 100% success rate. This was our first safari to Africa and Andrew got us every animal on our lists. All of the animals we took were well above average representative trophy specimens. Most of the animals will qualify for the SCI record book.

    We hunted on 5 different ranches and stayed in 4 different lodges. All of the accommodations, meals, housekeeping and staff were 5 star! Andrew provided a well organized, comfortable and safe safari from the time he picked us up at the airport until the time he dropped us off at the airport. There were no worries, no delays and no mistakes.

    My brother and I are already planning our next safari in 2 or 3 years time and it will definitely be with Andrew Harvey Safaris. :cool:

    Glad you were satisfied with your first hunt.
    You must have been driving like fiends to get to all the lodges and get your hunting done.
    Thanks for the pictures please tell some of the tales of the hunts.

    I know Andrew personally and he is an honest, straight forward, and generous PH in South Africa. Several of my friends have hunted with him and they all have had a great adventure. As soon as my daughter gets a bit older, I plan on heading over and hunting with Andrew.

    Would be hunting with him sooner but alas he does not have leopard on quota.

    I met Andrew in april last year , He was coming with clients as we had one day left . He was and seemed to be a nice Guy. Helso told me He comes to the States every year and visits Baltimore where I am from.
