I was told by a wealthy, older client who is a great guy and workaholic, but loves to hunt the few times a year he can in the US, that he wants to go to Africa while he still can, to hunt, but his wife will want the nicer to nicest accommodations, I know they exist, I have seen the pictures, but have no names off the top of my mind.

I told him a bush camp can be very comfortable and very luxurious in context, but they are a bit older and he is trying to have his cake and eat it too....any recommendations...no idea where to start. Thank you!

I can offer you some very nice accommodation 2.5 from Johannesburg international airport in a malaria free area in north West No need for internal flights or long drives after the long flight.

Please feel free to contact me for any further information

My personal best

Define luxurious? Where I stayed was a 4 star accommodation, but no spa and in the middle of nowhere, perfect for me, but also a problem if you run into a medical problem. My wife hated the food, I loved it, full bar, wine with meals. How do you decide? But I am not a spa person, with a few exceptions.

Good day sir,

We have access to some of the most luxurious lodges in South Africa. It all depends on what he is willing to spend on accomodation for his wife.

Feel free to send me an e-mail at js@jkosafaris.com and I can offer you all the options.

All my best,

Jacques

Hi.

We own and operate 4 hunting areas in the Northern Cape Province. Each area has its own luxurious lodge. I will send you a couple of pictures on a private message as well as some additional info.

Look at the website for Buffalo Kloof near Grahamstown in South Africa, 5* facilities. Ralph Koster is a great PH>

Schalk I need to come visit you. What a great lodge! Of course I don’t care about the lodge myself I just love everything about Namibia!

Hi Philip,

That would be great. You have experienced quite a big part of Namibia, but how about we go hunting in the Namib Desert?

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
