Harry,

Lisa and I really enjoyed meeting you and spending a few days with you in camp. Your photos and the trophies you were able to take were truly amazing! I'm so glad that your experience with Limcroma exceeded your expectations as I knew it would....We just got home today and I will post my report as soon as the fog from the jetlag disappears....:E Crazy Eyes:

We had a pretty amazing trip ourselves with lots of unique trophies and some great backstories to go with them.... I cannot believe how fast 11 days went by... It was probably for the best because we were getting fat from Thespina's cooking!

Congrats once again!(y)

Congrats!
Was your hunt a package, or a la carte?

I asked for a package on the game I wanted to huntand the days....the Warthog was a add-on....trust me you will want to plan on add-ons....I just wish I would have pulled the trigger on a 31+" Waterbuck...I still see him in my dreams....another reason to go back.

Looks like some nice animals. That Warthog looks like a real stud. Congrats on a great trip. Have you started planning your return trip yet? Thanks for sharing. Bruce
Not yet, but I'm helping a couple of friends right now to book with Limcroma. I've got a Kodiak Brown Bear hunt in the Spring of '17. Then hopefully back there so after that....they have some huge buff I want to take on.

Beautiful trophies! Kudu, bushbuck, springbok and nyala are at the top of my wish list whenever I manage to get back!

Looks like a great trip. I went to Limcroma last year, and hope to go back in 2017. Awesome place.
Hi Travis, The hunt was a package I put together with Hannes Els at Limcroma. The Warthog was a add-on. In the 10 days I was able to get everything in my package. Great place!!! I don't typically go back to the same places I've hunted before (always want to try someplace different), However, this place will be the exception. Somewhere out on his 250,000 acres is a Waterbuck and Cape Buffalo that I need to bring back!!!!

I just got back from my 1st Safari in Africa, I'm glad I did a lot of research, it really paided off including using this website. I went for 10 days to the famous Limpopo Province of South Africa and it was amazing. I choose Limcroma Safari's based upon everything I heard from references and the game rich area. My expectations were very high to say the least, and I kept on telling myself, to rein them in a little. Especially since I've been hunting for over 45 yrs. I've had some really good hunts and some disappointeds as well. But Hannes Els who runs this operation is 1st class all the way, including all his PH's, Trackers, Chef's and the rest of his staff. They say pictures say a thousand words well here goes....I think my grin say's it all....what a hunt.

Excellent Harvests!!!! I too am a Limcroma safari participant and I TOTALLY enjoyed the excellence of the staff, accomodations, and professionalism of the PH's and staff.My hunt was superb with them..AAA++

My first African hunt was with Limcroma in 2010 and I am glad you enjoyed yours as much as I did. Congratulations on the great trophies.

Congratulations Harry! I just now came across your report.

Each and every one of your trophy animals are exceptional! My husband and I hunted with Limcroma in 2013, and we can't wait to go back either.

Hi Khaleesi, Thank-you very much. My critters were just delivered to my Taxidermy 10 days ago, and couldn't wait to see if they arrived in one piece. We opened the boxes and everything was dipped, cleaned, packed, identified and shipped perfectly. I can't wait to get them home in 6-8 months and hung on the wall. Limcroma has teamed-up with Trophy Pro SA which handles all their dipping, packaging, and shipping operations. Everything worked out perfect. I want to go back soooo bad. I stayed at their new lodge about 20-30 minutes away on another property that when you go back you should stay at. The Cape Buffalo were huge. One other hunter in camp took a 46" Buff and his son shot a 42"!! I saw a couple that were 42"+ and at least another 1/2 dozen that were pushing 40"+. There's also a Waterbuck somewhere out there with my name on it. LOL.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

im happy to do these deals for 2021

i will knock off 10% off each deal if you take 2 so $18000 per package

look forward to your response

regards
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
