ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Every conceivable accommodation made for a great father/son safari, conducted by 4th-generation South African Hannes Els. Many SCI experienced clients in camp and very good PHs at the evening campfires. Marchelle's cooking is without equal and the main lodge and bar are very well laid out, and comfortable. Our PH, Jan Loots, was a fine tracker and tactician, together with trackers Lucas and Obit, got us some great shots, particularly on buff, sable, eland and bushbuck. Game was plentiful, and the trophies were high grade. Very large croc and a fine lion were taken while we were there. Finished safari with R & R days at Victoria Falls Hotel to cap off the whole experience. I heartily recommend this outfit, particularly to families.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Wow! What an incredible experience. Limcroma Safaris is a first-class outfit in every way. This was our 3rd safari with Limcroma in the last 6 years. Everything was truly excellent from the surprisingly comfortable, private chalets, to the perfectly prepared authentic South African cuisine. You will truly be spoiled when staying at the lodge. As far as the hunting, we are always impressed at the quality, quantity, and variety of game present. Hannes runs a very strict management program on his properties which yields some of the best genetics in the Province. The vast majority of their game is naturally propagated, and you will have over 40 huntable species to pursue including plains game, predators, varmints and fowl. We are primarily bowhunters although we will hunt with rifle or shotgun when the opportunity to take new and different species presents itself. We have hunted Africa several times over the years with a few different outfitters. Yet, none of them go to such lengths to put you on the animals. They encourage you to hunt in a variety of ways to get the most out of your hunting experience. Each client is assigned a PH specific to their needs and desires of their particular hunt. We have hunted with nearly all of the Limcroma PHs, and all of them are top-notch pros. This past hunt, we hunted with Kobus & Andrew Erasmus. This father & son team are a true pleasure to hunt with. Their combined experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm made for a really fun and rewarding hunt. I really can't say enough good things about Limcroma and what awaits you if you hunt with them. They are so different in the way you will be treated and cherished as a client. You will leave a changed person, and make lifelong memories as well as new friends.

This hunt was at the top of my bucket list, and it exceeded all my expectations. Every detail was covered and we never had any issues with guns, ammo etc. Once we arrived in Africa our every need was met. The camp and it's staff was outstanding. Special thanks go out to my PH Riaan who was very patient with me, as African animals don't stand still for ever and it takes a moment to get used to the shooting sticks!! Hannes Els runs the most professional camp that I have ever been to and has access to many different properties. I am already making plans to return!!!

The best travel experience of my life--includes all hunting and fishing trips. Could not believe how nice Limcroma Lodge was. The guides were very friendly. Greg Rodriguez of Global Adventure Outfitters put the hunt together. He has great judgement in picking outfitters. James Jeffery that works with Greg Rodriguez was very helpful to say the least on planning the trip also. Greg Rodriguez and James Jeffery of Global Adventure Outfitters and Hannes Ells of Limcroma Safaris get all the credit for putting together the greatest trip of our lives. My wife loved the hunt!!!! We went to Krueger Park and stayed at Tintswalo Resort for 3 nights-- an incredible experience also. Again, Greg and James J put this together also. Greg Rodriguez and James Jeffery will be involved in all of my hunting trips from now on.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I would recommend this outfitter to anyone looking to take quality plains game in South Africa. One of the Waterbuck will make top 40 and My Kudu was 57" and 13" bases, The hunts were fair chase and the terrain varied greatly depending on what you were hunting. The PH's are all quality people and the Lodge is very 1st class, great food and a lot of privacy when required. I can't say enough good, so my wife and I and several friends are returning next year to hunt some more species and partake in their birdshooting opportunities. We visited the bird hunting area the last day and although it was late in the season, there were plenty of Fowl and doves. It's really all Very Very good
