My wife and I decided to take our honeymoon to South Africa for 2 weeks. We got the opportunity to stumble across Nick's website while planning and he was one of the few PH's that offered single day hunting outside of the other great packages that he has advertised. Nick and his brother greeted us at the airport and took the short 1.5 hour drive to his family farm. While I was after Kudu, my wife had never shot a rifle outside of two rounds at a target range a decade ago. Over the two days were there, we finally convinced her to try some target practice with a .243 that Nick had. After building some confidence on the shooting sticks at the lodge, Nick took her on a bush hike to find Impala. Nick was able to perfectly place my wife in position to make her first kill. She looked like a natural with the shot from 143 yards. Nick was there by her side to guide her and keep her calm. It was an unreal experience to be the observer and not the hunter for a day. His staff and accommodations were top notch as well as his fees were reasonable and competitive. My wife and I were over the top impressed at the hospitality and attention to detail, especially when it came time to eat. The food was amazing and plentiful, the lodging was comfortable and cozy, and the wildlife on the property was abundant (no high fences either)! I have already pre-booked for an 8 day hunt in 2021 to go back and have ample time to do a 7 animal package that Nick is assisting me with on customizing. I would highly recommend Nick Bowker to first-timers and seasoned African hunters alike. His glassing and stalking knowledge coupled with the crew skills and knowledge of the area made for an exciting two days of hunting in South Africa.
