@cal pappas on his hunt with NKWE SAFARIS

NKWE SAFARIS is donating this hunt in memory of @cal pappas (In memoriam - RIP cal pappas). Cal took a chance on us in 2019 when we first started with He had a wonderful hunt, you can read his hunt hunt report with us at the following link: Cal was always the first to post when we put up an offer or posted pictures of a current safari. Always raving about the operation and quality of animals. It was great having such a seasoned hunter talk so highly of our operation. We spoke several times through the years discussing everything hunting. Cal was a pleasure to have in Botswana.
RIP my friend.

This hunt is for you!
Jaco Visser & Matt Egan

Spain, i booked through a consultant, i book almost everything through him now and he's done me right. his contact 724 986 7206 if interested and he will have more info to share,
I hunted elephant with Luke Samaris in 2005. It was my fourth safari and I tell you he is a fine gentleman the best. I got the opportunity to meet Patty Curtis, although never hunted with him but enjoyed our conversation around our tent in the Selous. Very sad for a tough guy to leave this world the way he did. Let’s pray the murderers are caught. I hope to see Luke in Nashville.
