    Hi All,

    Well we just returned (Dad, Mum & Myself) after our second safari with African Sky Safaris - and heck we are happy. Always great when your PH is more like part of the family... thanks Hennie!

    On the menu was buff, zebra, waterbuck, blue wildebeest, warthog, impala, blesbok, kudu and ostrich... well we got them all and then some!

    Also the first time my Mum have ever hunted, so Hennie took the time to help her nab her very first animal... very special time.

    When I have time I will post a fuller account of the safari; in particular the buff hunt deserves it - going in on foot to find the one in a herd of 70 in the thick stuff... just incredible...

    I have attached some photos.

    My second time with Riaan and Hennie from African Sky Safaris... guys I just cannot say thank you enough - just brilliant...

    Ado.

    They are based in South Africa, but operate in all southern African countries.

    I am currently booking again for next year for my third safari, and going to Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa all through them.

    Accommodation was excellent, and most importantly I trust them to deliver, especially when you are spending big dollars...

    What an adventure. The fact that you went back a second time says it all. Good job.
