South Africa
Hunting Africa has always been a dream since I began hunting. Never would have thought that I would get that chance but I finally got to go. We spent 4 1/2 years planning our trip and after looking at safari companies in Namibia and South Africa and contacting several we ended up going with KMG Safari's. Best decision of my life! There were many pro's and con's listed when trying to schedule our safari and KMG had no con's. They fit every need that we set.

On our first day arriving at Mpunzi Lodge we found that the accommodations were simply beautiful. Viewed fantastic South African sunrises and sunsets everyday from our lodge. Truly we were made to feel like we were at home and a member of the KMG family from the first day. That alone made you feel relaxed that you made the right decision in safari company.

My rifle was lost at Atlanta and did not arrive in Johannesburg with me. The next day we flew to Port Elizabeth and then drove to camp. The airport called Kim, when my rifle arrived, and she drove to Port Elizabeth and delivered it to me 2 hours away at camp. Thank you so much Kim.

Marius and Kim were easily some of the best people I have ever meet and you will quickly realize that they will be friends for the rest of your lives. Our PH Martin was fun to be around and made great decisions on the order of our animals. All the PH's and staff that work for KMG and Mpunzi tried to fulfill any request that you made.

I knew before I left for Africa that I wanted to go for a 2nd time at some point and now I want to get back as quickly as possible. Truly was an amazing trip to South Africa and I can not give enough thanks to Marius, Kim, Martin, Graham and Louw. The only negative is that I feel like I gained 10 pounds while I was there. Thanks Nicole. In all seriousness the food was fantastic and Nicole is an amazing cook and is always there when you need anything.

If you want a 5 star recommendation on where to go then the answer is only South Africa with KMG Safari's.

Thank you again KMG for letting me live out such a huge point of my life with you. I will be returning.

KMG is amazing!! Marius is fantastic and knows how to hunt and run a safari!!

I'm surprised the airport allowed Kim to retrieve your weapon; When they came to the States, the airline lost their luggage and a few days later I had to take Kim to retrieve their baggage - the company would not release it to me.

Maybe it's an American thing??

I too am interested in how your rifle was forwarded and retrieved by the outfitter. Were you flying Delta--Jberg or did you go through europe?

Good stuff!

KMG does a real good job, have to be close to 35+ reports now of satisfied clients on here?
And more coming judging from past clients.

Ive been back for not quite 3 months and I'm jealous your going soon... Do you need a hunting buddy??

All this KMG talk is making me feel AFRICA homesick...

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
