Me and 2 friends did a Safari with Paw Print Safaris last month. Paw Print Safaries did everything they said they'd do. The PH and staff were efficient, helpful, and friendly. The lodge and farms were beautiful and nice.

We hunted for about eight days and shot about 25 animals.
Kudu, Nyala, Eland, Zebra, warthog, jackal, impala, Red Harteast, Blue Wildbeast
We had a very good hunt with Paw Print Safaris.

I would particularly emphasize hunt for Kudu where me and my friend shot a duble.
We hunted all morning, saw many animals but no shooters. In the last light of evening, we found a good bull that I took. About 20 minutes after that, my friend also got a possibility that he would not pass and the result was Kudu number two. A very successful hunt that day.

I would like to thank Pieter and Lourens which owns and operates Paw Print Safaris, they really did a good job for us to have a successful hunt and stay. These guys are strongly recommended!

I must also mention that in addition to the three of us hunters, we had also seven companions in the group that Pieter made a very good program for and many good excursions.
Paw Print Safaris can be recommended strongly.

Thank you for taking the time to post the report, Norwegian Hunter! We all know that Pieter runs a class operation. Hope that the African bug has bitten properly. Any chance of some photos?

Take Care,
Marius Goosen

Only 25 animals in eight days??? sounds a little light to me..... :sarcasm: KIDDING!!!

I always read good things about Pieter and the outfit that he runs. It is always nice to have that reinforced even further! Great job Pieter and team!!!

NOW POST PICS!!!! :)

I forgot to mention that at the last day, we visited Soweto and Pieter and Lourens was at the airport to look after our luggage for five hours. That is service at it's best:eek:

Congratulations on a successful trip.
It takes a talent for service to look after large groups and going that extra mile at the airport.

Thanks for sharing your report.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
