Well I finally booked my first African Safari. Me and my Father will be hunting with KMG Safaris, May of 2022 on a 7 Day Hunt. We were thinking either Plains game with KMG or Dangerous with JKO Safaris. And I just wanted to give a shout out to Jacques Spamer of JKO Safaris, He is a super professional and friendly guy who I'm hoping to be able to hunt with in the next few years, I would definitely recommend him. And I would also like to mention Marius Goosen of KMG Safaris. He is also such a great guy, answered all of my questions, Definitely message him if your interested in a hunt. And thank you all who are apart of this website, I have found so much useful information. Because of it I am now going to be able to fulfill a dream of mine since I was a kid. Thanks for helping me feel apart of the community. And by June of 2022 be expecting a hunting report.
Thanks,
Matt

Is it KMG or JKO for your first safari? I am confused because you said you booked it but then said you were deciding between two outfitters.
Use TWG.travel for you plane tickets and travel insurance. Check out my posts YouTube channel for safari planning and prepping advice.
Have fun!
Philip

Matt,

Jacques @JKO HUNTING SAFARIS has been in Zimbabwe and I think now in Mozambique, so I don't think he has seen this thread. That said, thanks very much for your interests in JKO.

I'm excited for you!!! I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Marius, but I've read some of his posts and stories. I've heard nothing but good things about him and about @KMG Hunting Safaris
I've looked online and the place looks AMAZING!!
I'm so sure you are going to have an unbelievable time! I think you've made an awesome choice! Your first safari is something you'll never forget, so chosing the right outfit is important. Like @uplander01 said, it will change your life.
It was kind of you to give a shout-out to JKO even though it wasn't them you ultimately decided to go with. The likelihood that this will be your one and only safari is very unlikely! You, like most of us, will probably be bit by the bug and dream of returning often. Maybe you'll keep them in mind for next time.
I'm looking forward to reading a report upon your return, and in the meantime I wish you well with all your planning and preparation. Feel free to reach out for help or guidance, as you'll find many knowledgeable members who are more than willing to help you.
It is so nice that you are able to do this with your father! You are so fortunate in that regard...even the thought of it warms my heart. Good luck and have fun making memories!!!

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use robsheri@charter.net friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Good afternoon, please send me a list of pricing for 2022.

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
