Well I can’t begin to say what a great trip we had with Limcroma!
Everything from the planning stage to the hunt was meticulously executed . Dan and Jeff answered all my questions, and when we arrived in SA, Riaan picked up where they left off. Limcroma is definitely a first class operation, and I look forward to planning my second trip real soon.

The steenbok was shot at around 100 yds from the Rover.
I concentrated on bow hunting for Bush buck, hunting the river in a tree stand every morning. I saw several, including a huge trophy but didn’t get a shot opportunity.

I’d like to thank Riaan and the rest of the Limcroma team for a unforgettable trip. Everything was first class, animals, accommodations, blinds, meals, fellowship. Couldn’t of had better service than we received!

GTHC, Thanks for the report and pictures of the fine trophies! All great, but I am so jealous of the nice warthog! Haven’t gotten mine yet:(!

Thanks Ridgewalker..
The warthog was definitely a challenge for me..
I never saw a mature male while we were in the blind hunting. Plenty of sows and kids every day .
