I hope her Aunt Thespina doesn't hear you say that! Glad you enjoyed the Authentic South African cuisine. We are very proud of both of our chefs.

Dave,

My farthest shot on this trip was 30 yards. The way the vast majority of the hides are setup most of your shots will be under 25 yards but depending on the setup you could have the potential to shoot out to 40 easily.

Mr. Terry,

Than you very much for taking the time to post a great hunting report! The photos are amazing! I know you hunted hard, and you did very well given the challenging conditions.

We were truly privileged to have you back in camp for your second safari with us, and we hope many more to come... We are proud to call you a friend, and we consider you part of our extended Limcroma Family. It was a pleasure having you in camp, and we look forward to hosting you again.... Next time for a big hard-bossed dugga boy with your bow!

Warm Regards, Hannes

Your wife has got some skills with her camera! I'd love to get a milky way shot like that some time- need to fiddle with my settings some more.

Incredible photos Matrix! Looks like a fantastic hunt. From the photos of the chalets & camp, it looks like you were at the original lodge. Did you get to see the newest lodge? I was wondering how it turned out.
