Just got back from 10 day hunt with Kubusi Safaris . Hunt with my son and had a excellent time.
Hunted with PH Hennie he is a hunting machine cannot say enough about him has eyeballs as sharp as a bald eagle . We took 22 animals in 9 days was pretty eventful to say the least. Had trouble finding ammo so emailed Hornady as I wanted to switch from Federal to Hornady as what I needed for the game we planned to hunt GMX, SST not available at time they recommended 150 gr Interlocks so I took advise and was extremely disappointed in performance of bullets used 270 GR #8508 shot Eland at 100 yds and maybe had 100 gr left took 6 shot to put down . Took 3 Kudu, Eland, Waterbuck, 3 Blue Wildabeest, Black Wildabeest, Bushbuck, 2 Warthogs, 2 Impala, Giraffe,Springbok, Blesbok, 2 Zebra, Baboon.

We took all hornady ammunition on our safari. I shot a couple animals with it and was very disappointed. Switched to Barnes X (using PH rifles)and we shot 8 more animals after. Barnes X held together perfectly and I will be switching all my ammo to Barnes X. I have no affiliation with Barnes.

My son and I hunted with Kubusi in late May. We also had the good fortune to be guided by Hennie. He is as you say a hunting machine and a blast to be around! In fact all of the PH's we met were top notch as was Longmon, our tracker.

. Wish we could have stayed longer but we certainly will be back! I highly recommend Kubusi/Williamson Safari.

We went 10 days but could have easily done in 7 but it was nice to slow the pace down but we also took 11 extra animals.
Longone was excellent tracker/skinner he was always smiling even when we shot the Giraffe took 5 or 6 of them better part of 5-6 hrs to skin and cut up. They worked hard that's for sure.

We went for 7 days and were pretty much done in 4. Took 11 animals in all. Started to shoot more but decided we would plan a return trip instead so we saved some for next time. I saw the Giraffe hunt video on Kubusi's page. Wow! Great shot on a great animal!

Interlocks? Whoever at Hornady recommended them needs a tuning up. The Interlock is a deer bullet. Hornady Interbonds are bonded and way better suited for African Game.

Henny is a great PH and is a laugh a minute. BTW Hennie is worth his weight in gold when it comes to humping heave game into the truck.

That he is! We doubled on Zebra and the fun began. I didn't think we'd ever get them loaded. I wasn't much help as I had arm surgery 6 months prior to our trip.

The Kudu was an old bull and the Bushbuck was from fighting they were trophy's but taxidermist can fix we opted to leave them as character marks a I will hunt Bushbuck again when I go back in 2016 but Kudu will be hard to top my 53" Kudu for East Cape. Bushbuck was difficult but very fun hard hunt.

Looks like you guys really made good! That warty is special for sure!

I cannot believe someone at Hornady would recommend Interlock bullets for your hunt. If GMX or Interbond were not available, he should have sent you to another brand out of compassion!

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve

Hi Theleatherman, I attach two price lists, one in English, one in Italian, because several words of the language used by the agent are very difficult to understand. If you get in touch with Laszlo Keresztes (owner/manager) tell him that you got the name from Paolo Sinha, italian hunter.
Suerte!
