    I have not hunted with them...but know who they are. First class operation. I believe tim416 on this forum...sells hunts for them.

    I wouldn't hesitate to book with them...if there was a spot open.

    If you check "The Hunting Report" website there are 15 or so reports from hunters that have hunted with Roger. All but one was positive and recommended hunting with him. The negative one speaks for itself but in a nutshell hunting conditions were very tough because of drought conditions and the hunter didn't get all the trophies he wanted. I have a friend who hunted with him some time ago and had a wonerful hunt.
    Good luck and I am sure you will have a wonderful time.

    Have hunted with them some years back (PH Peter Wood).
    Very good once you get through the office booking.
    Worth looking at their Mozambique operation also.

    Hi

    I have known Roger Whittall and his family for nearly 20 years and wouldn't hesitate to reccommend them.

    I have been to Humani, their home hunting area probably 20 times and it remains one of my most favourite places in Africa.

    Their Turgwe camp is the nicest. Big Leopard on Humani + I got my biggest Kudu ever there at 57 " Elephant and some Lion + Buffalo about, so you get a feel for real Africa, rather than a game ranch hunt.

    Very nice family. Their son Guy runs the big game hunting operation and has some good areas in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

    Keep in touch and let me know how it goes.

    All best

    Tony
