They flew with Qatar airlines via Doha to Johannesburg.
I never flew with Qatar but the clients were full of praise and all said Qatar is better than Emirates.

I continue to re-read the post. This sounds more inexpensive that most ANY hunt I have seen advertised in AH. I keep thinking I am missing something.

Great deal and such a pristine and unblemished pelt too. My house cat has more scars. ;)
Hi Tanks
This big old lioness had a few battle scars.
You just cannot see them on the photo.
She had a big scratch mark on her back just in front of the back legs and another one on her flank supposed from mating with a rough boyfriend
But every scratch tells a story.
We tracked the pride for 3 full days. Had an opportunity every day but she was just too quick or the brush was too thick and client could not see her until she started running again.
Finally surprised them when we pushed them hard the whole morning of day 3 and they kept watching their tracks. So we broke for lunch gave them a few hours to settle down and at 3:30 pm we took up the tracks again and found them snoozing in the shade of thick brush. Client had to shoot quickly as they jumped up and made a perfect shot at about 30 yards freehand.

This is such an exciting hunt that it is difficult to comprehend it until you have done it yourself.
I have hunted many lions in Botswana years ago (mostly by also tracking them in southern Botswana's Kalahari region and sometimes by waiting in a blind in the Chobe region) and the hunt we offer is exactly the same quality experience.

Feel free to e-mail us for a list of references.

Sincerely
Hans de Klerk

Hi Sierraone
You are just missing your flight ticket over to Africa
Try Qatar Air.
This year many clients from USA used them and were very happy with them.

I too would love to take you up on this offer! Unfortunately, our (Canadian) prime minister will add on another $3000+ travel penalty (mandatory three day stay at a "government approved" facility), plus the cost of a covid test, plus an additional two more weeks off of work. And that's if the covid test comes back negative! If it's positive then I'd hate to even guess at what the cost would be to stay in their facility if three days is over $3000!
So, here you have a great deal on a hunt, but then someone else adds to the cost SO much that it's unaffordable for me. Isn't it great? :S Censored:

Hi Dirthawker
Just a few good deals (sales) or a little bit of overtime and you are there.

Hi Cam Moon
That is crazy!!
How can 3 days in a hotel cost $3 000!!
It is not like the government will put you in the 7 star Buhr Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.

My son went over to America to do some farm work in Texas.
He unfortunately picked up Covid over there and had to self isolate for 7 days.
Luckily his work paid for the hotel. He drank 2,5 millilitres of Ivermektien for 4 days in a row and on day 5 he felt better and is now 100 % and working again.

My recommendation is if you test positive when departing from Johannesburg just stay here for the 7 days or 10 days until you test negative again. There are plenty hotels in Johannesburg that host Covid positive customers. We can also return you to the ranch and you can stay here for $100 per day or you can keep on hunting at our normal daily rates. Once you test negative we'll return you back to Johburg.
It will be much cheaper than to use the Canadian government's "approved facility"
Sincerely
Hans

Thank you Hans. Yes, if I were to test positive I believe I would be better off staying in RSA, especially given the amount of false positives that have been reported. Unfortunately, even if I were to test negative I would still have to pay for an additional covid test when I returned to Canada and I would be forced to stay in their insanely overpriced "facility". It's absolutely stupid! And then I would ALSO have a mandatory two week isolation period after that! And that's with a negative test in South Africa, followed by a second NEGATIVE test in Canada! Two more weeks off of work without pay added on top of the government's "at least $3000" to stay locked up in covid prison, plus the cost of covid tests.... All that $h¡t costs more than the hunt and the stay in Africa. :S Censored:

Pretty sure we can fly to a destination near the border and catch a taxi, friend or transport service to and across the border where you are picked up by a friend or other arranged transport. You must have a quarretine plan in place and agree to stay isolated and also have a test done to ensure you are free of COVID. There are one or two other stipulations in place, but it can be done without the 'quarrentine' hotel. But that doesn't mean we don't need to get rid of this drama queen!

I feel sorry for you guys.
Governments are supposed to implement practical solutions but yours does not seem so "practical".
Hopefully by next year most people will be vaccinated and the regulations easier.
Like I said in a previous post : You can still secure this exact same hunt for 2022 with a 50 % deposit now (that is only $1 500).
Sincerely
Hans de Klerk

Trudopes propaganda machine had a story about the work around you state the other night. My bet our dictator will try and stop this in his next commi rule phase. Pattern seams to be release a story/bs on global then magically a few days later Trudope talk/actions it. Coincidental?? Not now that we live in dictatorship Canada. In BC we have the tightest lockdown since plandemic started, all while other countries are living again. Rick, at least you can move around majority of BC, I am locked down on the Island. WTH

Biggest issue for me is Safari and planning phase is all supposed to be fun, not crazy expensive, hoop jumping BS. That's why we had to delay another year. After planned 21 day safari we have another 14 days traveling/touring around SA in rental car. Fingers crossed June 22 this will be better organised and cheaper/easier to plan return.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
