Outfitter and PH: Cheetau Safaris, Werner and Carmen van der Walt. Second time hunting with Cheetau and my second time in Africa. Dates: Arrive JNB on 28 May 2019; depart 8 June 2019 – Delta Air Lines 200/201 direct from ATL. 11 days hunting, 12 nights Country and area: Limpopo, South Africa Concessions: Blinkwater Game Farm (primary concession and lodging), mountain concession near Lephalale (50 mins from lodge), third concession near Combretum Park, Modimolle (75 mins from lodge). These were different concessions/lodge than when I hunted with Cheetau in 2017 – and I was aware of this well before the hunt. They sent GPS coordinates for me to check everything months prior to arrival – since they know I like to do a bit of “Google Earth scounting” Lodge: The lodge was very comfortable and well equipped. Looks like the built half the lodge out of reclaimed wood of all kinds – very cool. I think it can accommodate 8 folks total, so on the smaller side of many SA lodges. Had a Jacuzzi that we used almost every day, a terrific braai/fire pit area (on the deck but not enclosed, so I don’t think it’s technically a boma), a nice bar area, inside and outside dining areas, a lovely infinity pool, and a spacious sitting area with HD projector where we watched world cup cricket after lunch. I found that cricket is even better than NASCAR for afternoon naps. BTW, the South African cricket team is rubbish this year if anyone asks. There was also a tented camp just down from the lodge about 500 yards. It was very nice also – with in-room bathrooms/bathtubs and community showers, a nice boma, dining tent, and a kitchen. Equipment: CZ 550 FS in 6.5x55 with Nikon Monarch 3 4-16x50 shooting 140g A-Frame handloads at 2650 fps; Nosler M48 in 35 Whelen with Vortex Viper LS 4-16x50 shooting factory Federal 225g TBBC; Vortex rangefinder, Meopta MeoPro HD 10x32 binos. PH used Primos Jim Shockey Trigger Stick tripod and Leica binos with built-in rangefinder. I’d ordered a set of Viper-flex quad sticks after using them in the UK, but they didn’t arrive in time for me to take to Africa. Weather: While I was there it didn’t rain a drop. Hadn’t rained in some time as I was told. Lows were between 34F and 42F each day, while highs were between 65F and 78F. I wore shorts/gaiters hunting every day, but wore a tee shirt, Cabelas long sleeve safari shirt, fleece vest, soft-shell jackets and skully/warm gloves each morning. It was chilly on the back of the bakkie! Primary targets: Nyala, impala, mountain reedbuck, klipspringer, bushbuck, warthog, duiker. A bit of an odd list perhaps, and “not an easy one” as my PH let me know Animals taken: Nyala, impala, klipspringer, bushbuck, eland, hartebeest Overall experience: Excellent, would highly recommend Cheetau if you are looking for personal attention from a small outfitter in SA. I was the only client in camp for the entire 11 days/12 nights I was there and had the whole place to myself. I strongly prefer the smaller outfits with only one or two groups in camp at a time. I didn’t mind driving to the other concessions – it was kind of nice to see the area, hunt on different farms in different terrain, and the braai lunches in the bush are enjoyable.
