Lifetime bronze benefactor
I think a lot of hunters, having had a "once in a lifetime experience" with a certain outfitter, feel comfortable only returning to that setting. We have members here who have been to Africa several times always with the same outfitter.Between 10 and 20 other hunters in camp while we were there. I don't know where they were hunting, I don't know where I was hunting, where ever my PH took me. Never saw another hunter in rhe field, only in camp.
If we think about it, a good comparison would be flying into San Antonio from Germany to hunt the 777 ranch. Our jaeger leaves a week later after rebooking with a whitetail, axis, and elk, to tell his friends what it is like to hunt North America. I would simply note that even just the southern half of the African continent is a huge place with vastly different hunting experiences.
Additionally, I personally can't imagine sharing an African hunting "camp" with 10-20 other people. A duck or goose lodge in Maryland or Louisiana - maybe - but not hunting Africa. I am also interested in a management plan that can sustain that sort of mature animal take from just self-sustaining herds. Perhaps one of the South African operators can offer insight?
There are fabulous opportunities in Namibia and South Africa that can offer a far more intimate and less obviously commercial hunting experience. Each of those places opens a whole new set of windows on totally different parts of southern Africa.
