    Congratulations Loodt.

    Adversity, regardless of from where it comes (external or self-inflicted) can serve to build character.

    My sincere prayer is that these experiences of the past few months will prove to be profitable for you.

    Like I stated waaaay back, I would sit on the side lines and watch this unfold. It looks like the issues have been resolved and we can all move on. Nice work Loodt!

    i was considering a hunt for red lechwe, waterbuck, nyala, black wbeast and bushbuck and chose EC as it seems the only province that allows all these species in a ten day hunt from one area. Tootabi has been by far the most proactive and responsive in replying to me and building a very competitive package based on these species.

    I am unsure now.

    Everything is fine now, he has his PH and outfitter license. Go ahead and book the hunt.

    Proof of the pudding is in our trip reports.

    You'll be in good hands if you book with Loodt.

    At the end of the day, you have to feel comfortable with the outfit you book your hunt with. You know that as well as any of us...this isn't your first rodeo as we say!

    I wish you the best in planning your next hunt. Sounds like you have an interesting mix of animals on your wish list.

    Look forward to reading about it!

    I can personally vouch for and HIGHLY recommend Tootabi and Loodt. I went there in April and I just sent him a deposit to go in 2017 with the rest of the family. The main reason I am going back to Tootabi is just not for the hunting but to visit the good friends I made while I was in Africa.

    If you want, feel free to send me a PM and I'll answer any of your questions/concerns.

    Brushmore I think you have hit the nail on the head. When you go off on a safari you often make lifetime friends.
    I look forward to meeting this young man Loodt someday because I hear good things about him and the hunts on his family farm.
