ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This hunt is a bargain for the first trip to africa. no nasty insects. good food and great people. Pieter is a practical joker so check you bags daily before going out since he likes to put big rock in them for a gag. get heavy duty brush pants because the brush is out of this world sharp and I ripped up some expensive orvis safari pants daily. practice shooting from sticks as it is different from the way we shoot in the states, I am looking forward to the next time I can go. They fill up fast so book the first day they open booking. They have so many repeat clients that it fills very fast. Air fare is more expensive in july. I did not know this but the weather is cooler and more pleasent in july. earlier in the year the animals rut so it may be hotter then but the hunting is easier as the big male animals become less alert.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Can't really say enough good things about the hunt, the staff, the camp and overall experience. After having had a few bad experiences in the past by having no US connection, it was sure a lot of peace of mind to have a guy like Bob Clark at my beck and call. I called numerous times with many questions and was astounded by his level of patience and consideration. My son, David, was with me and seconds everything I have said about Cruiser Safaris. Plus, they have just about the most comprehensive website I have seen.
