    jknapier: welcome to the site, may I suggest you contact us via email for an exclusive Couple's Hunting, Sightseeing & Beach Safari, in the Malaria-FREE Eastern Cape, South Africa. Numerous of our guests also combines their visit with Cape Town & Surroundings as an optional extra. We have had the pleasure to entertain many couples from around the Globe, and sure can put you in touch with them to get direct feedback. Our Safaris are NEVER a blueprint, so flexibility to accommodate your likes/dislikes is only a pleasure! The Critters on your wish list I'd say is a very good starting point for realizing the African Hunting Dream. Look forward to hear from you. Best Wishes

    Hi And Welcome to AH!

    Usually if the prices seem to good to be true they are! There are many reputable Outfitters on this site like myself that will be able to help you every step of the way to set up your Safari. Please have a look at our website for some of our plains game packages and please send me a mail if you want me to give you more info or if you want me to send you a quotation. If you don't want to be disappointed stop shopping for the cheapest outfitter.

    Welcome to AH and enjoy the planning! It's all part of the adventure. There are so many solid options across all of southern Africa. Choosing the right outfitter has everything to do with your particular wants and needs. Practically any solid outfitter can provide the game you've listed. Some have more luxurious accommodations than others...although I'd wager that an average camp in Africa is better than the average camp in North America. There are many good outfitters in the AH community. Check out the deals section to start. If your timeframe allows it, I'd recommend that you attend one of the big trade shows like DSC or SCI. Both are in January next year I believe. It's a great opportunity to meet face to face with some of the best in the business.

    Welcome @jknapier . Will you please be so kind to drop me either a PM here on the forum or a direct email. We have some super lodges that will certainly meet the approval from our fairer species. Happy wife, happy life. I will be happy to send some photos of the options that we can offer you, with some extra info regarding our operation. We are one of the longest serving sponsors here on AH, if not the longest, and will be more than happy to have the opportunity to present you with some ideas.

    Take Care,
    Marius Goosen

    Welcome to AH! If you read an offer and want to double check if it's believable run it by us!

    I think the hardest part of planning financially is the shipping and taxidermy portion. Shipping seems to vary greatly, and while taxidermy varies based on how much you get done and how. Shoulder mounting everything can double the cost of the Safari!
