Nice report very well written, I will have my wife read it tonight. She took her first animal (Impala) in the eastern cape in 2013, and we were married and had our honeymoon on safari in 2015. The last two safaris she has shot more than me. So tell your hubby to start saving for your next safari.

What a grand experience especially for your first big game animal to be in Africa! You obviously practiced a lot before your adventure! Good job!
Thanks for sharing your Africa honeymoon adventure!

Oh and that giraffe’s patterns are quite unusual from what I’ve seen...very handsome!

Thanks for sharing your views and perspectives. I really like to get reports from women as you get a more well rounded report from both male and female perspectives.

Mike and I burst into laughter reading the "stink eye" comment!! Haha!!! I guess it would not be a hunt with Marius without that look at some point!

Heck, under the circumstances it's actually the best feedback from a PH I can think of. He's gotten his point across, You know exactly what you did wrong, not a game spooking word is spoken. Done, move on. Laugh about it later when the animal is in the bakkie.

Congrats on a great honeymoon hunt. Excellent shooting. I'm sure all PH's wished their clients could shoot that well. Nice trophies and great writing!

Gina,

Wonderful report, the passion and excitement came through.

Great shooting and wonderful trophies, Mike is a lucky man!

I can remember when we were there with Mike in 2017 and him calling you from the lodge;)

I really enjoyed your report!

Gina, just in case you are looking for something to do with some of your giraffe hide. My wife loves hers.

Thank you for this! I have been trying to decide on what exactly to do with some of my giraffe. There are so many options, which is a good thing!
