Gentlemen. Our time is precious. Therefore this short hunting report with the warmest recommendations to the De Klerk Safaris, who deliver what they promise.

Last year - in April 2019, my wife and I were on a lion hunt at the De Klerk Safaris.
I had already booked "the big package" Level D Lion - 12,000 US Dollars.
EVERYTHING on the trip went as expected - and more.
Marie and Hans de Klerk picked us up as promised at Tambo Airport in SA.
After that, we had 5 wonderful hunting days in a huge game area that housed virtually all African game species.
De Klerk Safaris owners and staff did a great job every day, to spoil us with the best food and great service.
Their PHs and tracker did a fantastic job in the field, resulting in us already on the 3rd day, I put down my beautiful male lion - and the day after a top trophy of a Sable antelope - who attacked us when we thought it was dead.
A fabulous experience that ended just under a meter from my PH's when it was sent, with one last well-placed shot, in orbit to the eternal grasslands.
That was the hunt.
As far as trophy handling and forwarding the trophies to conservator in SA, this also ran like lubricated in oil.
60 days after completing our hunting safari, our trophies were delivered to the South African Conservator.
The trophies are now finished and on its way to Europe, where I receive them in early March.

I have been on hunting trips in Europe, Canada, Australia and Africa. In Africa up to several times. The De Klerk Safaris are here AT THE TOP among safari operators I have had the pleasure of visiting.
I highly recommend the De Klerk Safaris, if a big mane lion is on your Bucket List.
Lion hunting never gets cheaper than it is now, so raise your savings and realize your dream

And none of us know how long it will take before an import ban also hits your country.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
