In preparation for our safari, I thought a nice/practical gift for our PH would be the Diepkloof thermos and sleeve combo made by Els & Co. that I found this item on their website, www.elsfineleather.co.za. I contacted them directly and ended up getting one for our PH and one for us to keep.

Working with Ivan of Els & Co, I specified names to be embossed on the leather. Ivan also arranged for the thermos flasks and sleeves to be waiting at Africa Sky Guest House when we arrived in JoBurg (to avoid excessive shipping costs to USA). We used ours everyday of our safari, great for making instant coffee in the field.

The craftsmanship is of the highest quality. The leather is beautiful and durable, brush-dyed and polished with beeswax by hand. And it looks pretty nice too!

We presented our PH with the gift at the end of our trip and he loved it. He now takes it out everyday in his land cruiser for clients to enjoy.

As a bonus, Ivan added a Rhodes cartridge pouch to the shipment for free! These can be ordered in various sizes to accommodated whatever rounds you happen to use.

As a final pro-tip, if you have a credit card that doesn't have a fee for international currencies, I'd recommend ordering in ZAR. I think you'll save some money vs the USD price.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
