I had the pleasure off hunting With Marius goosen from the 15.10.14 until the 24.10.14...
the hunt was planned a long time in advance, and the waiting time was long..
All planning and all comunication With Marius was 200 % , never a thing to be in doubt off and always a quick reply...
When we landed in joh burg we were met by a guy from the proffesional hunting organisation, as we had done all paperwork in advance With them, it took 5 minutes , and then we were done... amazing, can only be recomended....
After this we were picked up by Marius and we went With rental car up to the first hunting area which was Close to Hoedspruit... here we hunted 2 Buffalo , the hunt was brilliant and we were able to shoot the 2 Buffalo out off the same herd...
All in all a super experience and all the People involved were super....
After this we drove back to johburg the NeXT morning and flew to port elisabeth to stay at kmg safaris New lodge in the eastern cape.. here the plan was to hunt caracal on dogs, as my friend wanted to hunt With his handgun, i told him he could get the chance for caracal, i never imagined we would get 2...
But as a matter off the fact we did get Lucky ( skill from the doghandler and Marius) and shot 2 Nice caracals...
we were also able to shoot a Nice impala, and a bushbuck and the last animal was a blesbuck....
All in all a super hunt With a super outfitter, i can only reccomend him and his crew to the all....
i hope i will be able to convince my wife off the importance off going back...
In a case anybody would like to know more please fell free to contact me...

Congrats!

Great trophies... I'd rather have a worn down gnarly old bull anyway. You know you've earned them....

As the second hunter on this trip to Marius and KMG Safaris I feel it's appropriate for me to join Karsten in giving KMG all the praise they deserve. Perfect hunt, wonderful people, beautiful lodge, and stellar trophies.

Royal27: I totally agree with you ;-) The gnarlier the better.

It will, unfortunately, be a few years until next time I can afford a hunt like this, but it was worth every Rand/Dollar/Euro :)

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?
