I am considering taking a Cape Buffalo Safari and am wondering if anyone has any experience with African Dreams Hunting, with Christoff van As. Seems like a great guy. Would love any feedback you may have.

Because when i have seen them at shows, I have not seen them promote a single lodge, but hunts at many. She also heavily promotes photo safaris.

Truth be told I don't pay much attention to them.

When I saw your post, all the links to African Dreams hunting were invalid. While I did not search the photo safari site extensively, I did not find a link to any current South African hunting.

Are you sure this guy was not just at his booking agents table?

African Dreams is owned and operated by Elaine Coetze (spelling?),, Elaine has been a liscenced professional hunter since I believe 1991. She is now slowing down a bit and doing mainly photo safaries, and acting as a booking agent. She is well known and respected within the industry, and I personally would trust her opinion.

I believe we are confusing two different outfitters....I have hunt booked directly with Shona Safaris for this August. Upon payment of the deposit, he directed me to pay his booking agent; Elaine Ness of African Dream Photo and Hunting Safaris. (Maiden name "Coetzee"?) I understand that she spends her time between Alberta , Canada and Namibia.
I would guess that Africa Dreams Hunting is a different outfit. I have never heard of them.

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
