    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.

    This post comes long after the original posting. Both Lou & Tim have hunted for our company and hopefully they will continue to do so.

    First I will comment on Lou I do not think you will find a more experienced Zimbabwe PH. His relationship with clients is great, although he does not tolerate fools! His cruiser is neat properly serviced and leaves camp on time, it is advised that you are on board. Oh, I doubt if you can out walk him as his last hunter found out! Both of his books are great reading and a great addition to anyone African library. I own both (which I had covered with buffalo).

    Tim again is a very competent Zimbabwe PH obviously he does not have as many years of experience as Lou (who does)! Anyone that knows Tim knows that the day starts out with a smile and jokes that continue throughout the day even when things are not going as planned. His Land Rover is one of the few that always seems to work, that in itself is some kind of a miracle. Hopefully if things come together (waiting for a copy of a clients passport) Tim will be doing a trophy bull elephant hunt for us in about ten days time, followed by a buffalo bull hunt (we are after one particular bull). Many have tried many have failed to take this bull!

    I will just say that I would recommend either, I know there ethics and no one can deny their ability!

    Rookhawk, are you thinking about going after Leopard again? Sounds like both of these guys, Lou especially, knows what their doing.

    I found Tokoloshe Safaris and Lou Hallamore to be consummate professionals. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Watch for a upcoming Lion/Leopard hunt with one of these two great PHs. Needless to say this will be a Zimbabwe free ranging affordable hunt!
