    ok so been planning my and a buddies second trip back over to Africa. Coming along with us would be our wifes my wifes first trip over buddies wife went with last year, We had a great and very successful trip with pawprints last year and we thought about returning but we are now on fence about seeing a different area. We have buff/sable and buff/kudu on our list then a few mixed plains game added as they present.(nyala, warthog, caracal, eland just to name a few of the wants) I have talked/email/whatsapp/pm/facebooked and everything in between to 12 outfits most are sponsors on here.

    Some of our perimeters:

    decent lodge doesnt have to be 5 star but wanted somthing a lil more then just a basic house,

    we are looking for 38+ on buff; 40+ on sable, and 55ish on kudu,

    Bow hunter friendly

    Good communication and outfitters was easy and responsive to all questions and concerns,

    Buff needed to be self sustaining breeding herd on a large property,

    Few site seeing or parks for wifes to go on while we buff hunt. (Not spas)

    And of course costs is a factor we know this isnt a “cheap” hunt but in reason with what everyone else is charging is what i mean.

    After much leg work we have narrowed it down to 4 outfits other then pawprints if we dont decide to return there:

    Kuche safaris
    Eintracht jagd
    JKO safaris
    KMG
    (In no particular order)

    If anyone has anything theyd like to say or comment on any of these outfits please comment below or pm me. Id be happy to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly about them.

    Thanks for all outfitters and their representatives that have taken their time and have talked to me and answered all my questions, and the two who didnt seem interested in booking at all.

    Ryan,

    If it is worth anything I can say that I know both Kuche and KMG Safaris and nothing wrong with either of them.... I cannot speak for the other outfitter as I have never met or worked with them. Always a tough decision and not easy sir.

    Hope this helps....

    All my best,

    Jacques

    @RBurg44 ,

    I have hunted with Jacques and know you will get an awesome hunt with him.

    Marius also has a fine reputation on this site with many positive hunt reports and happy hunters.

    Best of luck and have fun with the planning!

    I hunted with KMG for my last safari ( buffalo, waterbuck, black wildbeest, vahl rhebok and bushbuck) couldn't be more satisfied with them. They would be a great choice IMO.

    Jacques is a phenomenal PH and you will not go wrong with him. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to PM me and I can be of further assistance. I’ve personally hunted with him twice and a friend of mine will be hunting with him in May for Buffalo and plains game (both in Zim and RSA)
