We completed a 3+ week safari to Namibia and South Africa. The highlight of the trip was the week spent with Somerby Safaris. We had purchased a plains game hunt at an auction. When Andre, our PH, met us at the airport, he inquired if we would like to trade our plains game hunt for a cow cape buffalo hunt. We readily agreed as we had inquired about such a hunt in our prior correspondence. While we were picking up our tracker, Andre, and the Somerby home office, arranged for us to hunt at the Sandveld Nature Conservancy on the Free State and Northwest Province border. It is approximately 143 square mile area with no internal fences. Somerby's is so concerned with doing it right, that they called ahead to the lodge, arranged for the chef to stay late, and prepare us T-Bone steaks to our liking. We had a great hunt, a great PH, and the communication with Somerby's throughout the whole pre-hunt, hunt and post-hunt process was amazing.

I have only been to Africa with nine outfitters, so my knowledge base is not extensive, but I can recommend Somerby Safaris without reservation to anyone. You will have a great time, and be well cared for.

If you have been with nine Outfitters you have a pretty good basis for comparison.

Lets see this Cape Buffalo.

Andre and Drom definitely take care of their clients. I consider them both good friends and will go back with them again. Pictures please!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
