I met up with Pieter from Bandur Hunting Safaris in SA at the SCI show last year and was intrigued with his operation. Does anyone have any experience hunting with him? I am interested in taking my wife who also hunts but is not so keen on traveling out of the country. Thanks in advance for any feedback

Thank you for your reply. We found Pieter and his wife Eloise very pleasant and would like to book with him. However I was unable to reach many of his references.
I'm trying to do a little research before is book

Always speak to references sir! If you can't contact given references that could well be a Red flag. Keep trying to contact them because on the flip side of the coin they could have just the positive information you desire.

I have personally hunted with Pieter at Bandur Safaris and my son and husband are there for the 2nd time right now. We have another large group trip planned with them next summer as well. We have hunted at other lodges and there has been NO COMPARISON to the amount of animals we were able to see/stalk/etc at Bandur. The amount of land and variety of animals is amazing. I am not a big hunter so although I did hunt 2 animals, I spent one day in a blind with my camera simply shooting HUNDREDS of animals that visited for a drink at the watering hole. The staff is amazing from the private hunters to the kitchen/cleaning staff. Pieter, Eloise, and their 2 young sons are lovely to be around and every hunt with Pieter is exciting. He has such an amazing love for what he does that it is infectious even to someone like me that isn't a big hunter! Travelling to South Africa is truly one of the best adventures that I have ever been on and I highly suggest you make Bandur your lodge of choice. My husband and I would be happy to be of any further assistance if any of you want more info!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
