    This is the hunt with Tholo Safaris I did the hunt report on. I would expect on even a 7 day hunt to take a kudu in the mid 50's and a big mature eland in the mid 30's. Kudu have been taken here at 65" and eland to 40". The rest of the game is of very good quality but kudu and eland have to be seen to be believed.

    Camp is the equal of anything in RSA with AC and full time electricity.

    I think that's not a bad price at all...for the kudu, eland, wildebeest, and gemsbok....great opportunity especially for a first time hunter to Africa!
