    I know there are plenty of S.A. guys who are not doing Zim right.
    I am! and I constantly have to defend my name, In this industry your name is all you have.

    I knows Sifiso is not Opert's son. I deleted that post as the information I read was wrong, actually I read it wrong. I will generally check at least two sources before posting something like that. When I checked a second source I realized my error and changed it immediately.

    If you read what I posted about AMS there was no ambiguity as to what he said to me. That is where the disdain for SA outfitters comes from. I am not sure what your connection is to these guys is in Zim other than they claim to hunt Bingwa.

    PM inbound

    I wasn't there, and I don't know what was said.
    the guy you spoke to has been in Zim once on a hunt, and doesn't even know how to get to the airport.
    that is why I wanted to get your mobile num so I can call you and discuss this matter.
    i have spoken with the owner of AMS, who is a good friend of mine and the man who helped me get started in this industry.
    he isn't happy about being bashed on AR.

    so.......................are you going to send me your number so i can call you?

    I already sent it to you by PM. What he should not be happy about is the manner in which he was represented.

    Jaco.
    it is all over Africa not just Zim.
    we have a lot of bad outfits in SA, Zambia got sut down cause of corruption.
    it will never disappear!
    I have been ready posts all night(im in the states )about registered zim outfits that shock me!
    people I met when I started in Zim, people I took advice from!

    True as well Shaun,
    but by association if I was to take a client or offer a hunt in Zim I would be slammed, tarred and labelled as in the past, I personally like the country allot, but prefer to take my clients somewhere else and have seeked buisiness opportunities elsewhere, now when I receive an offer from reputable zim outfitters I just blow it off as I am not interested in the labelling anymore...

    I'll take my wife to the falls and Kariba but thats where it stops for me, luckily we have been able to find an awesome and much better solution elsewhere that I can work by myself... and ultimalty have sole control over.

    Bad guys are everywhere as you correctly mention, the problem is who do you trust as you have now learnt... and when you find someone like that are they willing to work in a mutually beneficial manner with you... It's just not worth my time away from home........

    good luck and as always only my very best.

    I personally hunted with Shaun and had a great experience. He works diligently to ensure that his clients have a safe and memorable hunt. Shaun is an ethical hunter and runs his operation with a great level of professionalism.
