ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This was a great experience for the whole family! We hunted two separate areas for a total of 7 days. Kate Kelly, Garry's wife, did a fantastic job setting up additional side trips to the beach at Cape Vidal for three days and at Umfolozi Game Reserve (non-hunting area for game viewing) for three days. We had a PH or qualified assistant for the whole time with us complete with meals etc. PH Paul Inman was outstanding in every way and did a great job including and endearing himself to our entire family. PH Graham Geldart was excellent as well.
