Lions in South Africa

I have hunted with Coenraad Vermaack safaris. It was a few years ago, but their property is HUGE. Saw lions several times over the course of my plains game hunt. Lion proof fence around the main lodge to keep the lions out. Last night I was there we had dinner at a waterhole under a "supermoon". A male lion decided to visit the waterhole during dinner. He made folks nervous. As we were finishing up he started to roar/call some of the other lions. Have never forgotten that experience. You could feel it in your bones!
I was told that at that time their lions were importable. All are free range and a wild self sustaining population. Given the amount of game they had an endless buffet. At least during the dry season when game has to go to the waterholes...

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex
