Hi Sanette. CAustin has a valid point. Your type of post is not beneficial to Shingani Safaris. This is the 2nd time a thread questioning them has come up here. This thread has at least 2 unhappy clients. Your post was too sure they could never do anything wrong. Unfortunately it appears that some folks aren't happy with how things have been handled by Shingani Safaris. Their being suspended from SCI doesn't help either. Your welcome to hunt with them. My $$ are too hard earned to take a chance. Too many good PH's that don't have this kind of controversy. Bruce

If there is any "crap" being spewed I think you seem to be the most likely source. I will never spend a nickel with these characters.

I have been hunting with Shingani Safaris twice. Once in 2007 and this May. I would not go with another outfitter, we had a great time. The accomdations were great, the staff was wonderful and the food was amazing. Every animal we shot were tremendous trophies. Our shipment is already here from our trip this May with all the animals we shot. Riaan is a very family oriented man and just a great person. He is not only our outfitter for Africa, but will be a lifelong friend.

We were treated very well. No bias, this is just our experience with Shingani

Well being an outfitter myself it sounds like he doesn't run a very good business. Though I only operate here in the states I can assure you I am not going to sell hunts that I cannot make good on. Any outfitter to do so is unethical. It's one thing to have game and just not get it done. That's hunting. But to sell a sable hunt where there are none, that should cost a fella his license.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
