    Welcome Kenny, they have been a sponsor on AH for quite a while. Many members have had success hunts with them! You can do a quick search on the Forums and see all of animals that other hunters have hunted with them.

    I hunted with them about 2 years ago, would recommend them as a top notch South Africa hunting outfit. Wrote a report as well, if you want to ask specific questions, just P.M. me.

    When I go on my safari in Apr -May 2021, my phone didn't work last time. Do I gotta buy a South African SIM card to be able to call back to the U.S.A. and use the internet?

    Kenny, welcome to AH! A couple of places I’ve hunted had no cell service nor internet. Like taking a step back in time. I suspect if there is service, a SIM card would work. Your carrier may have a temporary option for you.
    Another possibility is WhatsApp. I believe if you have internet service, this may work.
    Or for big bucks, a sat phone.

    Personally having no communication for a week or ten days so I can just focus on hunting is pretty nice. JMO
    Good luck!

    I can guarantee you will have the hunt of a lifetime. I would not worry about it one second. All I see is great trophy animals on my Facebook feed from them. The kudu they they have been killing this year will make you drool.

    I just finished my hunt with them just last week. You should read my detailed hunt post I just posted last week. They are the very best

    @Kenny Your first trip was a disaster................who and where did you hunt with and what made it so bad?

    As far as @Game 4 Africa Safaris, I have hunted with them twice and think they are a top notch outfit as well as a sponsor here on AH. After you hunt with them, you will change your avatar to a photo of you grinning ear to ear, with a beautiful trophy animal.

    This is a link to my two reports:
    https://www.africahunting.com/searc...frica&o=date&c[title_only]=1&c[user][0]=23300

    There have been many hunts reports on them.

    Hunted with them last year and plan to go back in 2021. May go in 2020? Posted a report on here of 2018 hunt. I can’t say enough good about them.
    Had no problem with cell service or WiFi with them while at the lodge. Paid for international plan with carrier and used my own phone.

    I agree with Ruger. He put me onto them and was he ever right. I found WhatsApp is great for texts but I brought a rented iridium satelight phone with 60 minutes that cost me a total of $230 for the week to speak on a phobe

    I was there this time last year and was exceptionally pleased-they provide internet and I use Verizon cell service. Verizon charges an additional $10 per day for international use. I texted a ton and called home several times, no big deal.
    Wik is especially good at answering e mailed questions etc-get ready for a great trip!

    Hunted with Game4Africa in early May along with my wife and daughter. A great time was had and really enjoyed a chance to give a little through the community school they support. You can dig a little deeper by reading my review if interested.

    Hunted with game4africa in sept. 2017. Excellent hunt/trophies, Wik is an excellent ph, I suspect his brother Colin is also top notch!
    Very gracious hosts, excellent food, a great time, I did post a report.

    Just do it! I booked with @Game 4 Africa Safaris based on a recommendation from another Aussie. Still counting down the days.

    I have spoken to Wik on the phone, he returns emails and puts up with my constant questions.

    My first international trip and first guided hunt so I asked heaps of questions but if people keep praising them up There’s gotta be a reason.

    They tailored a package for me and I can’t wait.

    Does anybody know that with the economical prices of Game4Africa, does the quality suffer?

    I hope not. I did call Wik and ask those sort of questions. Im taking his word for it that i will still get the same experience that a trophy hunter would.
    Try get in touch directly would be my suggestion
    This is our first big trip and a 25th wedding anniversary and we are working on a budget but i think i have a good deal
