    I need to know info on Lou Hallamore and Tim Lamprecht related to Zimbabwe hunting as PHs.

    I searched "Hallamore" on AH and found nothing. I found one thread mentioning Tim Lamprecht but couldn't find much detail other than he was on a "caveat emptor" thread.

    Please advise. Thank you for the information, group.

    Lou Hallamore has been in the game forever in Zim. He was with HHK Safaris previously, and I think as owner/outfitter/PH. Not certain why he left or sold that business, but while he was there his reputation was very good from what I've read.

    www.hallamorehunt.com

    Hallamore is the correct spelling.

    Lew is a legend, read his book Chui, one of the most complete works on Leopard hunting and very entertaining.

    I have not hunted with either of them. I know nothing about Lamprecht.

    Lou and Clive are good people. Lou is probably mid 70's and can still walk you in the ground. A tad rough around the edges but full of information. Stories about Rhodesia, the bush war, parks, hunting, etc. I have not shared a camp with him but he would have to be a hoot and a wealth of knowledge around a campfire. If you want to hunt with a legend, the time is getting short.

    I have known Lou Hallamore for many years and a more knowledgable or experienced PH would be difficult for you to find. Lou's two sons, George and Clive, are also well seasoned Zim PH's who I have hunted with and would not hesitate to recommend.

    Lou has authored two books, 'In The Salt' and 'Chui'. I suggest that you read those books as they will likely tell you all you want to know about him.

    Good hunting to you.
