Barbara,
I was hopeful that my fiasco with Ngong Safaris, Borge Ladefoged, would have been resolved prior to the 2016 hunting conventions. Unfortunately, that has not happened.

I think that you should put out one of your email "extra bulletins" to alert the hunting community that there are more hunters that Borge Ladefoged has screwed.

I have enclosed my five-page report from June 13, 2012 (which was never sent due to negotiations to hunt in 2013), along with 55 pages of communications between the various parties, i.e., myself, Tommy Morrison (of Sporting International), Borge, Borge's attorney, other hunters involved and other professional hunters.

Barbara, the crux of the matter is that Borge originally screwed me and Greg Walla (from Houston) in June of 2012. Tommy Morrison (Sporting International) did everything possible in his power to rectify the screwing Borge gave us. Ultimately, Tommy was able to get Greg a partial refund of $25,000.00- Greg's total outlay was $43,500.00.

Tommy talked me into returning to hunt with Ngong in May, 2013. Tommy offered to accompany me and Tony McCorvey (from Houston, he replaced Greg Walla) at his own expense. I want to state very clearly that I harbor no ill feelings towards Tommy Morrison. I believe Tommy has done everything possible to resolve this fiasco, but without Borge's cooperation, nothing can be done.

As of today, Borge insists that the only reason we don't have our skins and horns from May 2013 (bongo, etc) is that the Cameroon governmental officials are demanding a bribe from Borge to sign the export papers, and Borge refuses to pay the bribe.

Barbara, I have a real hard time believing that the Cameroon government is the problem. I have friends that have recently hunted with Faro West and they all had their skins and horns within 8 months. One and a half years later, we still don't have our skins. I think the real problem is either Borge is broke or he is unscrupulous, or he is both, broke and unscrupulous.

Additionally, Tony and Mitzy McCorvey and Tommy Morrison hunted lord derby and roan with Borge Ladefoged and Ngong in January 2013, and they still do not have their skins andlor horns from that safari. Steve Smith from Houston hunted bongo with Ngong/Borge in June 2011, and he still does not have his bongo skins and horns.

Tommy,
I booked a safari for bongo through you in January 2012 to hunt with Ngong Safaris' Borge Ladefoged in Cameroon based solely on your recommendation. I convinced my good friend and hunting partner, Greg Walla, to join me on this safari. Greg was also primarily hunting for bongo. Greg and I went to SCI in Vegas 2012 for the most part to meet with Borge Ladefoged to go over the details for our bongo safari. In our meeting with Borge, he promised that he would personally guide me on the safari and that Greg and I would be the only two hunters in camp. The Ngong Safari brochure also states that there will be only two hunters in camp.

JUNE 3, 2012 - SUNDAY
Greg and I arrived in Douala with the understanding that we would air charter to the forest camp on Tuesday, June5.

JUNE 4, 2012 - MONDAY

On Monday evening another hunter, Horst Baier from Miami, Florida, arrived at the hotel where we were staying (Le Meridian) at approximately 5:30 p.m., and we were introduced to Horst and also Austin Nick from New York and Austin's videographer, Martin Muller (from HP Productions in Bloemfontein, South Africa; phone: 27515224326)- both of these hunters told Greg and I that they were also hunting bongo with Borge Ladefoged. That was our first indication that we were in trouble - Borge had promised only two hunters. Now we find out that there are going to be four hunters. Horst Baier was also troubled because he was told, as we were, that there would only be two hunters in camp.

As the conversation continued, Horst and I discovered that we had another problem as Borge had promised me face to face in Vegas at SCI 2012 to personally guide me and Horst had a letter from his booking agent (Bob Kern at The Hunting Consortium) that Borge was to guide Horst. Also that evening, Borge's representative, Benoit Godefroy, tried to collect money from all four of the U.S. hunters (Greg Walla, Horst Baier, Austin Nick, and myself) for the air charter. At first, Benoit wanted 1,250 euros each - two hours later he wanted 1,500 euros each. Both Horst and Austin told Benoit that they had already paid their fees for the air charter in advance and that they did not owe any money for the charter. After Benoit's attempt to collect air charter money from Horst and Austin failed, Benoit then tried to collect 3,000 euros each from Greg and I. At this point, Greg and I had absolutely no faith in Borge or Benoit. We told Benoit that we refused to give him any money for the air charter, but we would gladly pay the 3,000 euros each directly to the air charter company.

I later called you and asked you to get in touch with Borge to find out what the heck was going on. It is my understanding from my subsequent conversation with your wife, Anna, that you had a heated conversation with Borge, but that Borge confirmed there would be four hunters in camp. Borge told you that he agreed to guide me. Shortly after ending my phone conversation with you at approximately 9:00 p.m. Douala time, I talked to Borge on his satellite phone (Borge was at his forest camp). I told Borge that it was total bullshit that he had booked four hunters at the same time and that he had promised to personally guide two hunters at the same time. Borge apologized and told me that everything would be fine and that everyone would get their game. Borge then asked me if Horst and Austin had already paid for their air charters. I found it very strange that the owner ofNgong Safaris did not even know if his hunters had already paid for the air charter. I now wondered what kind of operator he was. I told Borge that Horst and Austin had already paid for their air charter. Borge then asked me to give Benoit 6,000 euros for the air charter.

JUNE 5, 2012 - TUESDAY

Benoit came to our hotel and had me talk to Borge on Benoit's cell phone. I told Borge that I was not comfortable giving Benoit 6,000 euros and that I preferred to give the money directly to the air charter company. Borge insisted that I give Benoit the 6,000 euros. This was at 10:05 a.m. on Tuesday, June 5. Borge told me that the charter would be ready at approximately 11 :00 a.m. this same day to take the four hunters (Horst, Austin, Greg and me) and Austin's videographer, Martin Muller, to the forest camp. Greg and I reluctantly gave Benoit 6,000 euros.

11 :00 a.m. comes and goes - no plane. Now Benoit tells us the plane will be at 1 :00 p.m. 1 :00 p.m. comes and goes and no plane. Now the story is 2:30 - 2:30 p.m. and still no plane. However, Benoit tells us the plane will be back at the air charter hanger by 3 :00 p.m. and we will go then, get on the plane, and leave. All four hunters insist on going to the hanger to wait so we could load, leave, and get to the forest camp before dark as it gets dark at 6:00 p.m. and the flight is 2-1/2 hours. Benoit will not take us to the charter hanger. The new story is that the plane is in the air and as soon as it lands, we will go the plane. At 4:00 p.m. Benoit now tells us that the plane will be at the hanger at 4:30 p.m. and then we can go talk to the pilot. At 5:00 p.m. we are told the pilot has landed and gone home. Benoit now tells us that the plane will leave Wednesday, 6/6/12, at approximately 8:00 a.m.

JUNE 6, 2012 - WEDNESDAY

The next day, Wednesday, June 6, we are to be ready to leave at 8:00 a.m. Benoit does not show up. At 10:30, the videographer, Martin Muller, finally calls Benoit on his cell phone and Benoit tells Martin that we are driving to camp and that we cannot fly because the pilot is sick. At about 2:00 p.m., Benoit and his four SUV's show up to take the hunters and videographer to camp. Greg, myself, Austin Nick, Horst Baier, and Martin Muller, his videographer, insist on going to the charter company to find out the truth. For about 15 minutes Benoit refuses to take us to the charter company. Greg, Horst, and I tell him either he takes us to the charter company or we will get a taxi and go. Benoit finally agrees to take us. We go to the charter company that Borge was supposed to have paid. The plane is there, but the pilot is in France and has been gone since Sunday, 6/3/12, and wouldn't return until Sunday, 611 0112. So the truth came out - the plane was never going to fly on Tuesday, June 6, as we had been told. In fact the plane had not flown for anyone on Tuesday because the pilot was in Paris.

We now go to the other charter company in Douala, Air Affaires Cameroon. This is the air charter company Benoit says Borge used until 2011. Greg and I go into AAC and talk with both Jacqueline Ngassa, Director of Commerce, and Nathaline Mganso, Managing Director of AAC. They confirm that Borge was using AAC until last year. Both Jacqueline and Nathaline quoted Greg and I a price of9,000 euros to fly us to Borge's forest camp. Two problems - 1) AAC will only take cash - no credit cards, and 2) they cannot fly until Friday, June 8. Benoit, now understanding that Borge is caught, calls Borge on his satellite phone at about 3:00 p.m. while we are still at AAC. Borge talks to me and tells me that the plane could not fly on Tuesday, June 5, due to weather. This is one of today's "new" stories. Borge asks me what we are doing, and I tell him we are getting our own air charter. Borge asks with whom, and when I tell him with AAC, Borge says he has never heard of AAC. Borge then tries to talk Greg, Austin, his videographer Marin Muller, and me into driving to camp - at this point Horst Baier had already left Douala driving to camp. I tell Borge that if he wants Greg and me to drive to camp, then he must personally drive to Douala and drive Greg and me to camp. Borge refuses our request saying his vehicles are all gone already (this, too, was later proven not to be true).

At 4:00 p.m., Benoit finally convinces Austin Nick and his videographer, Martin Muller, to leave, driving to camp with only 2-112 hours of daylight. Before Ausin leaves, he tells me that his grandfather, Alan Sackman, still does not have his trophies back from Borge from two years ago. Borge continues trying to convince Greg and me to drive to camp. I tell Borge I will give him a list of demands regarding Greg and I driving to camp. I then called you and gave the same list to you. I tell you to call Borge and get his assurance on my demands. You cannot get Borge to answer his satellite phone, so you emailed Borge. The list is as follows:

1) Benoit (the only English speaking person we know) must drive us to the rendezvous point to meet Borge's people halfway to camp.
2) Borge must have an English speaking person at the rendezvous point to take us the second half of the trip or Benoit must take us the entire way to the forest camp.
3) We must overnight in a motel at the halfway point as we don't want to drive at night. (Too many people, including the two ladies at AAC, had told us it was too dangerous to drive at night. This fact was verified by the two hunters and one professional hunter that had to make the drive because Borge did not pay his half of the last charter. These three guys are professional hunters Fred Rademeyer of Northern Operations Africa in Coral Gables, Florida, Tommy Haas from Riverton, Utah, and Steve Grove from Dallas, TX. These three guys told me that it was a drive from hell that took 23 hours 49 minutes 11 seconds. All three told me that the drive was totally unsafe and that they would never do the drive again. Professional hunter, Fred Rademeyer, told me that he would never subject one of his clients to such unsafe circumstances.)
4) I want Borge's assurance that there are four professional hunters and four vehicles in camp.
5) Borge is to guide me and Kim is to guide Greg. V
6) Borge must agree to drive us back to Douala leaving 6117112, driving 6117/12 and 6/18112 so we can be in Douala for our 6/19112 flight. (At this point we cannot trust that Borge will pay the charter company, and we don't want to be stuck in camp.)

My understanding is that your continued attempts to contact Borge via satellite phone and email until 2:00 a.m. Texas local time to get Borge to agree to our terms, all failed.

Here are the irrefutable facts:
1) Borge's brochure states only two hunters in camp - he booked four. He also told me in person that Greg and I would be the only hunters in camp.
2) Borge received 6,000 euros from Greg and me by demanding we give Benoit 6,000 euros for a charter that Borge knew could not possibly fly. I had refused to give cash to Benoit until Borge directly insisted to me that I do so.
3) Borge repeatedly had different stories about the charter flight. Borge told you that the plane wasn't leaving due to pilot being sick. The pilot was not even in Douala - he had gone to Paris on Sunday, June 3, and was not scheduled to return until Sunday, 6110112.
4) Borge denies ever using and/or even knowing about Air Affaires Cameroon even though both Benoit and AAC told me otherwise.
5) Borge refused to personally come to Douala to get us to camp. Borge's excuse for not coming to Douala to drive us to camp was that there were no vehicles in camp - there were still at least two vehicles left in camp. This fact was given to me by Greve Christian (email call@hvidkilde.dk), one of Borge's hunters that had to drive back to Douala because our air charter never made it to camp and Greve was to return on our charter.
6) Borge knowingly put our lives in danger by forcing us to have only one way to get to hunting camp by driving 24 hours - some of which is unpaved, unmarked roads.
7) There is no confusion that the air charter is not the issue. The issue is the fact that Borge had so many different stories that Greg and I got to the point where we lost all faith in Borge.

I am a very experienced hunter with 11 African safaris, 9 Alaska hunts, North American Grand Slam, Mexico, New Zealand, 6 trips to Canada, and too many lower 48 states trips to count. I have been stranded in Alaska for days waiting on the weather, missed connections in cities and towns due to weather and/or mechanical failures, so I am very experienced with difficulties that can arise with hunting trips. But this mess was caused solely by Borge Ladefoged.

While I do not know why Borge repeatedly changed stories, I suspect he is in some type of financial trouble .: As all of the stockbrokers' disclaimers state: "Past performance may not be indicative of future performance." I am well aware that in the past Borge had many satisfied customers. Well, this is the present - end of story. He broke our contract by booking four hunters in camp instead of just two. He took 6,000 euros from us knowing perfectly well that we were not going to air charter to camp, and he had total disregard for our lives by trying to force us on an unsafe drive to camp.

Tommy, at your request I am holding off going public to give you time to speak with Borge and give him the opportunity to do what is right. I will personally contact the Safari Club International Ethics Committee and ask for Borge to be banned from The Safari Club International Convention

as well as Dallas Safari Club and Houston Safari Club. I will send a complete report to "The Hunting Report" to be printed and distributed all over the world. Greg and I were wronged and I will not

stand by and let it happen. I have also contacted my attorney to consider a lawsuit.

They have demanded a refund and honestly I believe you owe them one.

You voided the Safari Contract when you booked four hunters into your camp when your brochure says there will only be two hunters. They could have left for home when they found out there would be four hunters in camp and you would have been obligated to refund their money. I convinced them to stay and then you had the charter fiasco. From that point everyone has a story about what the Charter Company and others said to whom and none matched the other causing Rick & Greg to be very suspicious of everything being said. The end result was the charter was not going to take the hunters to camp. You then came up with a plan to drive them to the forest camp with an ovemight stay at some motel on the way. Rick & Greg were very reluctant to make the drive and obviously very upset at this point. They then contacted me again and asked for me to confirm with you the reliability and safety of your plan and my advice on what they should do. I contacted you by phone several times yesterday with discussions on the subject. In our last conversation I agreed to speak with them in hopes of finding a solution and I said I would call you back in a few hours with an answer. After speaking with Rick and getting an agreement I sent you an email with the answer and tried to call you back many times that aftemoon and night without any answer. I find it strange that up to mid day I was easily able to get you on the phone and then suddenly you never answered the phone again even though you knew I would be calling back with an answer. I suspect you turned off the generator and phones at 10:00pm your time and went to bed with no concern of waiting up for my return call. A call, that should have been very important to you. I, on the other hand, stayed up last night and tried calling you every hour until 2:00 am this moming with no answer. At midnight I called Rick & Greg since it was 6:00am in hopes they had spoken to you and all was in agreement. They informed me that they also had not heard back from you all evening so they had decided to go home. At that point there was nothing else for me to do but to say good night. I did stay up an additional 2 hours still trying to get you on the phone in hopes of salvaging the safari. Borge I have done everything I could to salvage this safari but I do not believe you went the extra mile to make things happen. I believe you owe these clients a refund, they did not break the contract, you did. They then agreed to still go on the safari, make the drive, only asking for some reasonable requests. Yet you seemed unconcerned what they wanted as you did not wait up for my phone call or try to call me for an answer. You also have two paying clients in camp which is all you are suppose to have so the cost to you for these extra hunters is minimal.

By now you probably know that Rick & Greg are returning home on the AF flight tonight. I tried all day yesterday afternoon & night to get you on the phone until 2:00am this morning my time! I had them ready to take the drive and go hunting except they wanted your guarantee that you would have an English speaking driver return them to Douala on June is" and several other issues listed in the email below. I could not reach you and you did not contact them, so they would not leave Douala.

After arriving in Douala and meeting the Sackman's grandson & the client that you booked through Jeff Neal they realized you Double Booked the Safari and there would be four (4) hunters in camp not two (2). At that point you lost all credibility with Rick & Greg. Over the next 2 days they became increasingly suspicious of the things you were saying, especially since everyone they spoke to were contradicting what you were telling them. They are extremely upset and convinced you have been lying to them the whole time. I'm not sure who all they talked to at the Charter companies and other places but they were all contradicting what you were saying. I'm sure Ben Wah or Emil will know the people.

I still believe in you! However it is difficult after listening to the contradicting stories Rick has been telling me over the phone. I do feel that you did not communicate with them enough and help them through the issues and problems they were having in Douala. Over the last 2 1 2 days I have talked to Rick over 20 times trying to keep him calm, listening to the problems, trying to help him find solutions and convince him everything would be okay once they got to the bush. This was Your job, not mine! Borge, how many times did you actually call them to help solve the problems, calming their fears and showing them your concern about their predicament???

Borge, I'm not sure where the fault lies in this mess but it certainly is not mine or Rick & Greg's! I do not blame them for coming home. They had lost all confidence in you & your ability to get them back to Douala in time to catch their flight home. Had you not Double Booked this Safari and been more communicative all this may have never happened!

Obviously, they did not make their safari of no fault of their own and they expect a full refund of the money they have paid.

I would appreciate a response to this email as soon as possible.

I have spoken to Rick again and if you agree to the termS below and they do go on the safari, they want to be back in Douala on June 18 so they can be sure to catch their flight home on the 19th. They want an English speaking driver to be on standby to take them by vehicle in case the charter does not show up to take them back to Douala. If they have to drive then they will need to depart camp on the 17th to be in Douala by the 18th

PLEASE CONFIRM THESE ARRANGEMENTS AS WELL

Borge: I cannot get through on any of your phone numbers.
I've spoken to Rick and calmed them down a little. I need the following guarantee from you and I believe Rick and Greg will drive to camp in the morning.

1. They must leave at 6:00 am in the morning and overnight at the hotel you promised and then onward to your camp the following morning. They will NOT drive at night.
2. They want whoever meets them at that hotel and drives them to camp the following morning to speak English.
3. Since Ben Wah is their driver tomorrow, can he also take them to camp the following morning? Does Ben Wah know how to get to your camp?
4. Both Rick and Greg hunt 1X1 with separate guides. You will be Rick's guide and Kim will be Greg's guide. They will not share a guide on a 2X1 basis at anytime.
Please reply immediately with your guarantee.

Tommy
I just today at noon Houston time spoke to Horst Baier, [from Miami] the guy that was hunting bongo with Borge at the same time Greg and I were suppose to hunt [this is the guy Bob Kern booked}.

Horst told me that Borge was over charging for the air charter flight, he says the P.H. from the neighboring camp Martin O. Neuper [Lowveld Hunters] says the charter is 2600 euros not the 3000 euros Greg and I were charged. Horst met the guys that were hunting with Borge just ahead of our scheduled arrival---he met them on the road as they were driving back to Douala as Horst was driving into Borge's camp.

One of the hunters is Greve Christian, [ I have his email address] both of these hunters told Horst that Borge was lying about the rain keeping the plane from flying into the forest or the rain keeping Borge from talking on his satellite phone as he told you because there was NO RAIN the last few days they were in camp June 4, 5 and 6.

Horst and Alan Nick and Martin Muller the videographer had to drive back to Douala---no plane to take them back. Horst said he nearly got in a fist fight with Borge as Horst really got on Borge for all his lies.

Horst hunted with Borge's future son-in-law, he liked the young man and got a bongo on the last day.

Horst said the food was fine but the atmosphere was not as Horst said he hardly even spoke to Borge------sounds like a horrible way to spend two weeks to me.

Horst told me he will be writing his letter to the hunting report this weekend.

I spoke with Horst Baier again over the past weekend.

As you know from my previous email Horst had to drive back to town at the end of his safari. Horst questioned Borge as to why Horst paid 3,000 euros for his air charter when the charter company has charging 2,600 euros, Borge would not answer him.

Horst then asked for a refund of the 3,000 euros for the charter because he had to drive to camp, approx. 21 hours each way---Borge told him that it cost lots of money to drive and he was not going to refund any money for the charter. Horst also told me that in his opinion Borges area will not support 4 bongo hunters at the same time-----Horst does not believe that the area is big enough with enough roads for 4 bongo hunters all at the same time. Horst said he did not get his bongo until the last hunting day.

Horst told me that there were only 3 P.H.'s in camp---Borge-his daughter---and his future son-in-law. It is Horst opinion that had Greg and I went to camp 2 of the then 4 hunters would have been hunting 2xl.

Borge,
I am sending you & your lawyer friend a copy of their contracts by separate email.

You and I both know there have always been only two hunters in camp. That was your original request and my agreement that if I only booked one hunter in a particular date you would fill the second opening so that the clients would share the charter going and coming out of camp. Remember, I helped you with your booking chart for years.

Borge, I have supported you for many years, helped you get a start in the American Market, backed you with my reputation and helped you get to where you are today by booking many hunters and introducing you to the right people in this business. I have always respected you as one of the most intensive hunters I know and one that I could trust to always do the right thing by my clients.

Yes, I am having a difficult time supporting you on this issue. Not because Rick and Greg are good clients and friends but because I feel you are not treating them fairly. There is something wrong with this charter mess and you and I both know it. I'm not being told the whole truth. Yes, it was Rick and Greg's decision not to make the drive to camp but I don't blame them. Everyone in Douala was telling them you were lying about the charters, had not paid the charter company for prior clients flights and you insisted they pay Beniot for the charters when you knew they would not be able to fly.

Also, neither Greg and Rick or I could reach you to confirm you would guarantee to get them back in Douala before their flight departed. They paid for 12 days of hunting and by the time they would have reached camp by driving and returned to Douala by driving they would have lost over one third of their hunting days. I find it difficult to believe even you and your team of PH's could get all four hunters bongo and the other game they wanted in that short of time. They also booked the safari with the belief a charter would take them to camp. Very few clients would book your safari if they knew they would have to take a 36 hour drive on a very dangerous road to get to your camp.

Borge be honest with yourself, you know the fair and just thing to do is refund them the amount I suggested. You did not provide the services you promised, nor did you spend all they paid you on preparing for their safari. I also know you personally promised Rick in Vegas he and Greg would be the only two hunters in camp.

Now please do what is right and refund them the money requested.

Regards,

Tommy Morrison
President

Yes, you spent money on food, PH's and hunting license, but I know of nothing else. You cannot expect to hold their funds because you bought a new car. When I booked both Rick & Greg, according to you and your brochure, there were to be only two hunters in camp. So if you had to buy a new vehicle, it was for the other two hunters you double booked.

I already refunded my full commission back to Rick and Greg and I did nothing wrong but completely fulfill my obligations. All of my arrangements were properly completed. However, there are times when these things must be done to prove your honesty and integrity in business andto improve the goodwill of your clients.

Borge, you should refund Rick and Greg at least $20,000.00 US each plus the air charter monies they paid you. Anything less, and you and I will have serious issues. I await your response.

I talked with Rick & Greg and they will not return on a hunt. They want a refund. They say your offer is unacceptable as they already paid for the hunt and the charter so all you were giving them is a bongo trophy fee.

I may get them to settle for less than the full amount but they are being very difficult. They do not believe you are out any monies on their safari since you were only suppose to have two hunters in camp and that's what you ended up with after they left. They feel you may have spent some money on food and PH's but nothing more. They want a full refund.

I think you should make a substantial offer on the money they paid on their daily rate plus the money for the air charter. I have already refunded them my commission. If I can get them to accept an offer I will insist on their agreement not to publish any hunt reports. Please consider the consequences if these guys come after us before you make a rash decision. We need this problem to go away. I await you answer.

This is VERY serious! Something must be done to appease Rick and Greg. I am refunding all my commission to them and you must consider giving them a refund as well. It is not worth all the bad publicity you and I will receive. I know Rick and he will do exactly what he says he will do. If he files a lawsuit in the US, you would be forced to appear in court and if you did not and you lost the case, they could come in and seize your assets (booth, computer etc.) while you are at an SCI Convention. That sort thing has happen before to an exhibitor, besides Rick knows the Sackman's, Sadler's, Barnhart's and Cunningham's etc. He has already found out that Alan has not yet received his bongo he took with you several years ago and the Sadler's have also not received their trophies. Why haven't they received their trophies??? Miquel Zaldivar has just sent me an email asking when his trophies will be shipped.

Tony McCorvey and Steve Smith who were coming with me next year for eland, have also been contacted by Rick and they are considering canceling for fear of never receiving their trophies.

During todays first telephone conversation with Pierre Guerrini he opened up the sore subject of my experience with Ngong Safaris in June 2012.

I gave Pierre a brief account of the screwing Borge gave Greg Walla and me. I asked Pierre who he uses for meet and greet services for his hunters in Douala---unfortunately Pierre told me he is using the same that Borge uses---Emil and Benoit. I told Pierre that I would not book a hunt with him if he was going

to have either Emil or Benoit meet us at the airport and take care of us while in Douala. After I explained to Pierre all of the misery that Emil and Benoit put Greg and I thru Pierre promised that

if Greg and I book a hunt with Faro West that Pierre would have one of his Professional Hunters---either Charles or [excuse the spelling] Franq personally meet us in Douala and escort us to the

forest and escort us back to Douala at the conclusion of our safari. Furthermore Pierre promised to investigate my claims against Emil and Benoit and their refusal to refund the 6,000 euros cash

that Greg and I gave Benoit for our charter to the forest that never came to be. Pierre phoned back today at 11:30 a.m. Houston time to tell me the following: Pierre called Emil on his cell phone just prior to calling me back, Emil supposedly told Pierre that Emil used our 6000 euros as follows---

Emil kept 1500 euros for past debts that Borge owed Emil
Emil arranged to have the other hunters going into Borge's forest camp to be driven to camp that cost 2000 euros
Emil paid to have those same hunters driven back out of the forest.
Emil paid the remainder to AAC Air Affaires Cameroun for past debts that Borge owes them.
Tommy, I think it is best that you verify my understanding of what I think Pierre said to be sure I understood Pierre correctly.

Subject: Mr.Young and Mr. Walla - discontinued safari

Dear Tommy.

As earlier informed I had a meeting Friday 27 July 2012 with Borge here in Copenhagen to clarify what has actually transpired in relation to the discontinued safari of Mr Young and Mr Walla in order for Borge to reply to your proposal and the contemplated actions of said two clients. I called you Friday following the meeting to discuss but did not reach you and accordingly I am writing you in stead as I told your secretary I would be doing.

In order for the parties to reach a solution I think it would be helpful to ascertain where we disagree - particularly with regard to the sequence of events as they took place - and hence I will try to render "our side of the story" for you to comment on.

As it appears from the contract the arrival date in Douala for the two clients was scheduled to occur on 5th June 2012 with transfer to the hunting area by air' charter on 6th June 2012. However as far as I am informed the two gentlemen arrived in Douala on 3rd June 2012 with scheduled departure to the hunting area on 5th June 2012 - but this discrepancy has probably no implication in relation to what we are discussing.

As far as I am informed the problems started on 5th June 2012 when the scheduled departure with the air charter was cancelled and moved to the following day - 6th June 2012. As you are probably aware the charter was made with African Connection (which is the charter airline that Borge has used for many years) and was a co-charter with PH Pepe Chelet, who also had clients to bring to the bush. On 5th June 2012 Borge was in telephonic contact with Pepe Chelet who informed him that the scheduled flight had been cancelled by African Connection due to "problems", but that the flight would leave next morning on the 6th June 2012 from Douala at 09.00 AM. At the time neither Pepe Chelet nor Borge had any insight into what the real nature of such problems was as African Connection was not sharing at such junction any details of such problems.

At 07.00 AM next morning on the 6th June 2012 Borge was in telephonic contact with Benoit who confirmed that the flight was scheduled to arrive at 09.00 AM same day. At 09.00 Borge called Benoit again to obtain confirmation to the effect that the flight had arrived - which is Borge's standard procedure. However Benoit now contrary to Borge's expectation informed him that the flight was delayed - again due to non-specified "problems". When Borge called Benoit one hour later at 10.00 AM he was informed that the flight was cancelled.

From this point followed various communication between Mr. Young, Mr. Walla, you, Borge, Emile, Benoit - and maybe others too that we are not aware of. However the essence is that some time in the afternoon of the 6th June 2012 Borge agreed with Mr. Young that he and Mr. Walla would travel by car to the bush on the 3 conditions you confirmed in your e-mail of 6th June 2012/11.12 AM. As far as Borge recalls Mr. Young mentioned during his conversation with Borge that he would have you write an e-mail with the terms agreed, but Borge was not made aware and certainly did not understand that he should confirm the agreement he had confirmed with Mr. Young with you to make this a valid and firm agreement. At this point - rightly or wrongly - Borge was of the firm impression that an agreement had been reached with Mr. Young and Mr. Walla and he did not call you - which in hindsight obviously he should have done - as he was now focused on delivering the agreed deal. To make things worse heavy rain set in which made communication from the bush impossible.

In accordance with the agreement Borge made with Mr. Young a car was sent to the hotel at the agreed time in the morning of 7th June 2012. However Mr. Young and Mr. Walla apparently reneged on the agreement made with Borge the day before and stayed at the hotel without appearing for the departure. When Benoit went to look for them and found them having breakfast he was apparently told that they wanted to finish their breakfast before coming - implying they knew they had made an agreement with Borge to go by car this early morning. When they still did not appear Benoit went to talk with them again and was now told that they did not want to go without any explanation being offered. Borge called Emile later in the morning of the 7th June 2012 - as is his standard operating procedure - and was told that the car had left with the hunters. Due to a misunderstanding in such communication Borge did not get the impression that this did not include Mr. Young and Mr. Walla and therefore Borge took no further action. (As regards the following events surrounding the 2 gentlemen's departure from Cameroun I believe there is ~agreement and I will therefore not elaborate further in respect of events which occurred from that time on.

However I would like to address certain claims and innuendo:

It has been claimed that Mr. Young and Mr. Walla were promised (directly or indirectly) that they would be the only hunters in the camp. This does not appear from the contract and neither is it something that Borge would normally agree to. On the contrary it is mentioned in Borge's standard terms and conditions that there must be a minimum of 2 hunters in the camp - implying that the prices mentioned are conditional upon a minimum of 2 hunters - not a maximum. If the 2 gentlemen had wanted the camp for themselves this condition should have been in the contract.

It has been claimed that the reason for the cancellation of the charter was that Borge owed African Connection money or did not pay them. This is not true. A communication between African Connection and Borge's co- charter Pepe Chelet has recently come into the possession of Borge. I am attaching this communication which was sent by African Connectin to Pepe Chelet on the morning of 6th June 2012 but only much later came to the awareness of Borge. Incidentally Pepe Chelet who brought his clients by car to the bush on this occasion - did not share this e-mail on receipt thereof for reasons unknown to Borge. As it will appear the problems of the charter had nothing to do with Borge or Pepe Chelet for that matter but was solely due to "political risk" problems of African Connection with the local authorities on which Borge had no involvement or influence at all.

As I mentioned when we spoke on the phone Borge would however like to see this matter closed and settled as this whole thing does not benefit neither him, you, Mr. Young

Borge likes to see his clients happy with top trophies and stories to go with them and this is normally what every hunter coming to Borge's camp has experienced including the 2 other hunters in camp on the relevant occasion who chose to go by car. They shot what they came for - Elephant, Bongo, Sitatunga and Duikers. In line with this Borge would like to repeat his offer to Mr. Young and Mr. Walla to come back and hunt for Bongo next -year and anything else they want (except for Eiephant) to hunt in the forest without any additional payment and where Borge will pay the trophy fees and air charter on to of thiS. If thiS IS

of interest to Mr. Young and Mr. Walla Borge is also prepare a e e 2 gentlemen arrange their own air charter from Douala and into the bush (hopefully making them more comfortable about the logistic

situation) against a payment by Borge of the amount he normally charges for such charter as per his standard terms and conditions. If Bongo is no longer of interest Borge is also prepared to make a

proposal for LD Giant Eland hunt at his northern camp. Borge is of the firm impression and hope that he will be able turn the 2 gentlemen around to forget about the logistic problems they

experienced the first time around if they are given the opportunity to experience Borge's rain forest hunt.

Alternatively and notwithstanding that Borge is of the opinion that Mr. Young and Mr. Walla have reneged on the agreement made with Borge on 6th June 2012 and hence are entitled to no refund. Borge is also prepared to offer to refund 50% of the amount he received from Mr. Young and Mr. Walla respectively

i.e. EUR 10,560 each - which comes to a total of EUR 21,120. The reason for the 50/50 is that both parties could have acted in a more "considerate" way towards each other - and hence no party should accept to be the sole party to blame.

Both proposals - which are made without prejudice - are conditional upon an undertaking by all parties that they will be bound by confidentiality not to talk about this incident privately or publicly. Borge has been contacted by clients who have heard about this incident on the "grape wine" and with details about Borge's alleged payment problems which - I must say - constitutes slander. I will query - without any rude intent - to what extent the experience of Mr. Young and Mr. Walla extends to assessing information coming out of Central Africa where everybody is pursuing their own agenda. But judging from what you have told me about Mr. Young and Mr. Walla as being very straight and honest people I do not think that is the kind of communication they would like to see themselves associated with. Hence I would hope that we can all move forward now with the above - in my view generous - proposals which I presume that you, having known and respected Borge for many years will know has not come easily in a matter like this where Borge's lnteqrity is attacked. Please let me have your thoughts.

Tommy

I read the email from Mr. Troels Askerud [Borge's attorney] which quite frankly I found very disgusting to say the least. I do agree with Troels that arrival dates have nothing to do with the issue but obviously Borge knew our arrival date or he would not have had Benoit meet us at the airport nor would Borge have told me on his satellite phone that our charter plane was ready to fly us to the forest the next day. All this arrival date issue seems to be one more of Borge's bullshit tactics.

In his email Troels states that we were to fly with African Connection----this is the same company that Borge told me himself on june s" [via his satellite phone with me talking on Benoit's cell phone] that Borge had never heard of this companv+-so all the bullshit about problems with the air charter company is just that BT. The real problem is Borge owed more money than the 6000 euros Greg and I gave Benoit and the charter company would not fly due to Borge's bad credit with them.

I have developed a relationship with other people in Cameroon I have verified what I just said.

Greg and I never agreed to go by car to the forest and Tommy you know yourselfthis is a fact as we told you to confirm with Borge our requirements for Greg and I to go to the forest by car but Borge never answered you. Borge claims that heavy rains prevented satellite phone communication----well Boge's hunters that were in camp at the time tell me that there WERE NOT any rains in the forest camp at the time in fact they said it did not rain at all June 4,5 or6---1 can furnish their name and email contact to verify this.

Now to the number of hunters, Troels says we should have got in writing that we were to be the only 2 hunters in camp- ---in fact Borge's sales brochure states that but on top of that Borge told both Greg and I to our face [ at SCI in Vegas] that we would be the only hunters in camp. I am sure that we were not the only people that were under that understanding as Mr. Horst Baier who actually did drive to the forest when Greg and I were to hunt with Borge was also told that there would only be 2 hunters in camp, I also have Horst contact information to verify this.

Tommy I take Borge's offer to refund 10,560 euros as a total insult.

All total with hotels, commercial airfare, fees paid for the hunt and the air charter we paid for, Greg and I are out just over $45,000 u.s. which does not include our lost time/income.

I have tan's of information and many names and contact information that have first hand knawledge about this mess and I have their permission to. use it.

The first thing I will do. is contact everyone that offers bongo hunts, then every booking agency in the world that I can find, next the hunting report followed by SCI internatianal and all of the chapters thru out the world and every single SCI individual member.

I don't care if it cost me $20,000 to spread the information about the screwing Borge gave me.

Rick/Greg:

Firstly, I believe you know I back any decisions you make and will do my utmost to see that you get what you want out of your demands. As you know, I am on your side, yet I am still trying to act as a negotiator with Borge and Troels. I feel this was my best course of action to get the results wanted for you and still keep some type of communication line open with Borge. Your letter is very straight forward, well written and there is no mistake of how you feel. I believe the letter is a little strong, yet it may be necessary in getting what you want. The letter is obviously written by you, Rick, but I think you should make it clear that Greg is in 100% agreement on how you feel. I think you stated the facts very plainly and backed them up with explanations of your research. I do not want to see you lose a chance to get some kind of refund so be sure you are committed to what it says. I honestly don't know how this will play out after the letter is sent. I do believe the letter will either get you what you want or create a stonewall with no compromise.

I had hoped you might decide to take Borge's offer and go for the Bongo again. Obviously, it is the most economical approach to this issue, although, it may be hard to swallow. I hate to see you lose that much money if Borge gets hard headed because he's backed into a corner. I believe I have a very good chance of making it work for you, by being there with you, having direct contact with the charter company and Troels and some very stringent agreements with Borge. However, I know it would be difficult emotionally to make this safari. Of course there is also a chance I am not able to make it happen the way we would want. In terms of pleasantries with Borge and the other people in camp I'm sure it would not be what you want out of a safari. However, you, Greg and I would have some great campfire camaraderie, I'm sure.

I think this sums it up, let me know what you and Greg decide.

If you decide to send the letter I would consider changing a few words.

Troels)

I think at this point the best thing to do is settle this issue as soon as possible. Discussing what the parties agree or disagree on at this time I believe is mute. The only thing in your letter I believe Mr Young and Mr Walla agree with is they did arrive in Douala on June 3rd and they were suppose to depart by charter to the Forest Camp on June 6, 2012. At this point, Mr Young and Mr Walla are very volital and it has taken a great deal of effort on my part to calm them down. I have hopefully convinced them to try and settle this matter amicably.

What Borge has offered is unacceptable to them when you consider all they have paid to date to Borge, hotel expenses, commericial airfare and the air charter paid to Emil) it totals just over $45,000 each.

They will accept the following per person nothing less:

Refund on daily rate Euros: 10,560
Refund of Sporting International (already paid) Euros: 5,280 Refund of Air Charter (6000 divided by two): 3,000
TotalEuros: 18,840

They are willing to sign an agreement that no hunting report of any kind will be turned in to any organization or hunting club once they receive the refund. They are also very adament that if they do not receive the Euros 18,840 each, they are prepared to contact all hunting organizations, clubs, Safari Club International ethics committee and file a law suit in the United States. I apolize if this sounds like a threat but it is how they feel.

From your conversations I realize Borge does not feel he owes this refund, however Mr Young and Mr Walla did not deserve what occured to them. It is important Borge realize that settling this issue is in his Best Interest.

The reprecussions will be far reaching. We await your reply.

Borge has agreed with the terms of my email of Aug 6, 2012(see below). His atty is preparing an agreement following its terms with the following conditions:
1. you will cease speaking about your safari and it's difficulties
2. you will not turn in any written report regarding your safari or it's difficulties to any person, club or organization
3. you will not file any lawsuits regarding any issues about your safari
You each will receive most ofthe 13,560 euros from the funds I receive from the final payments on two Lord Derby Eland safaris that will be conducted by Ngong Safari in February 2013. I will be refunding each of you 5,280 euros ($6,830 U.S.). The balance will be paid by Ngong Safaris. These payments are due in my office by October 27,2012. Our next move is to wait for the agreement from Borge's attorney.

The only way I would accept Borge's offer without you going to club faune is if we could get 2 spots [with the good dates] for 2013 and I get another friend to go on the hunt.
No I would not consider a delay on the refund.

If you consider it important, I will accompany you on the Bongo safari with Club Faune. My budget is tight for next year, as sales have not been good, and I am already scheduled to go on a Lord Derby safari in February. Would you consider delaying the refund of commission to you on the Ngong Bongo safari and let me deduct it from the Lord Derby safari you book? If you feel uncomfortable with this, its okay, and I will pay you in October along with Borge's scheduled refund.

I was working on the invoice ofMr Young and there is something I am not sure I understand clearly.
Mr Young is coming alone on the hunt or with a friend? this friend is Mr Greg Walla?
I know you are coming too and acting as an observer. But what about Mr Greg Walla?
Did he want to come too and hunt? did he changed his mind ?
Please confirm this, I am confused, before I send you the invoice.

Thank you,

Rick will take the April 28-May 14, 2013. Since I have not booked for you before I would appreciate it if you can prepare a deposit invoice for Rick and send it to me. Please include all extra's on the invoice or the accompanying email so I will be sure not to miss any charges. I will then invoice him for the deposit and send you the payment less my commission. I assume my commission is 15% based on the total daily rate. Please advise. I also assume you want his deposit payment sent by wire transfer. Please send wiring instructions. If there are any questions just let me know.

We need to bring this matter to an end. Over the last several months I have tried to be a mediator, keeping everyone calm and resolving this issue in a manner that will hopefully be at least acceptable to all parties. I am only the booking agent that represents Ngong Safaris and introduced Mr. Young and Mr. Walla to Borge Lagefoged of Ngong Safaris. I have preformed and completed all of my duties in a proper manner. I had nothing to do with the issues that have occurred. However, because I feel I represent both parties, I have tried to arrange an amicable settlement.

This situation has cost me an untold number of hours of phone calls, emails, etc. plus the $13,660 commission on the safari. I have also had to agree to not charge Mr. Young and Mr. Walla my commission on the rebooking of a future Bongo Safari to get them to agree to a settlement. Since it does not appear they will agree to any settlement in which they return for Bongo with Ngong Safaris, this whole issue will eventually cost me over $20,000. So everyone is loosing on this deal. Therefore, the sooner it's over the better off we all are! I believe Mr. Young and Mr. Walla have expressed how they feel and what they are willing to accept in the email I sent on August 21,2012. We await your response, in hopefully, a very expedient manner.

Return Lokomo - Doau1a - Paris Thursday June 06-06-13.
I will be on the same flight from Paris to Doula, and from Douala to Lokomo May 23-05-13
As you will be together with the hunters, I will try if we can get you a Sitatunga. ( If you want)
It is a good idea to sell Wallas Safari for US$ 25.000.- ifhe do not want to go.

If Walla will not go, instead of Borge having to pay Walla what he agreed, can I try & sell Walla's safari for $25,000 and give the money to Walla. Then Borge does not have to refund any money. I think this works best for everyone. As long as there is NOT more than Young & one other hunter in camp with me as an observer. Your thoughts please ASAP!

Dear Tommy.
Further to your e-mail of 11 September 2012 and with reference to my e-mail to you of 30 July 2012 Borge would like to repeat his offer to Mr. Young and Mr. Walla to come back and hunt for Bongo next year and anything else they want (except for Elephant) in the forest without any additional payment and where Borge will pay the trophy fees and air charter on top of this. Borge is concerned that no hick -ups occur in respect of the charter this time around and would like to make the arrangements in such regard together with you. Furthermore Borge confirms that you will accompany Mr. Young and/or Mr. Walla on the safari as an observer without any payment to Borge. There will only be the 2 hunters and you in camp. Borge has dates available after 15 May 2013 and will contact you directly in respect thereof and in respect of the arrangement of the charter. Please let me know as soon as you know whether both gentlemen will avail themselves of this offer or whether I should proceed with the cash settlement agreement in respect of Mr. Walla.
Ps we will respond re your latest below cash proposal later today.
All the best

Have we got Borge's final complete agreement? And final dates confirmed?
Please arrange that IF we do take this hunt that I hunt with Borge's other male PH not Borge or his daughter.
You may want to think over what all you include or don't include in your deal to sell Greg's hunt, I really think Borge owes the charter and trophy fees to who ever takes the hunt---Greg or ??
My understanding is that the only cost I will have is my commercial airfare and hotel---that is it for me---no trophy fees no charter fees.
I am still waiting on your refund of your commission which I will use to cover my commercial airfare.

You will be responsible for all other fees or charges listed in Ngong Safaris brochure, such as additional trophy fees, pack & dip, freight of trophies, commercial airfare and hotel expenses. You and I have always been straight up with each other and carried a mutual respect because we both believe that's the only way. I trust that you know I worked diligently to get a reasonable settlement for you and Greg on the Bongo safari.
Shoot straight and stay downwind,

I have confirmation from Borge as follows: arrive Douala May 22,2013, charter out May 23rd, return to Douala by charter June 6, 2013. Kim will be your PH & Borge will be Tony's. I suggest as last time that we arrive on May 21, 2013 and spend the nights of the 21 & 22nd in Douala at the Meridian Hotel just to insure that our bags, guns, etc. are with us before we depart on the charter.

Tommy
Have we got Borge's final complete agreement? And final dates confirmed?
Please arrange that IF we do take this hunt that I hunt with Borge's other male PH not Borge or his daughter.
You may want to think over what all you include or don't include in your deal to sell Greg's hunt, I really think Borge owes the charter and trophy fees to who ever takes the hunt---Greg or ??
My understanding is that the only cost I will have is my commercial airfare and hotel---that is it for me---no trophy fees no charter fees.
I am still waiting on your refund of your commission which I will use to cover my commercial airfare. Thank you
And have Borge sign the agreement or Borge and his attorney sign it but not just the attorney as that leaves Borge wiggle room

Subject: RE: Young Bongo dates

Rick
I am now more confused than you!
I cannot answer your question regarding "all other trophy fees" as I am not sure of Troels intent in writing the email. Borge's original offer was(see the email I sent you on June 21, 2012) the Bongo trophy fee. I never assumed anything different until now. When I originally read Troel's email of Sept 13,2012 I did not pick up on his statement "Borge will pay the trophy fees and air charter on top of this". Ijust assumed he was still referring to the two Bongo trophy fees. The plural in "trophy fees" in his email could actually be read as "any animal taken except for elephant on the safari". I believe it now must be clarified what was meant however the email must be crafted carefully as to not expose the ambiguous statement.
I need to reread some emails and then prepare an email that hopefully will resolve this in your favor. If you have any suggestions just let me know.

Barbara Crown
The Hunting Report
12192 S.W. 128 Street
Miami, FL 33186
Barbara,
I was hopeful that my fiasco with Ngong Safaris, Borge Ladefoged, would have been resolved prior to the 2016 hunting conventions. Unfortunately, that has not happened.

I think that you should put out one of your email "extra bulletins" to alert the hunting community that there are more hunters that Borge Ladefoged has screwed.

I have enclosed my five-page report from June 13, 2012 (which was never sent due to negotiations to hunt in 2013), along with 55 pages of communications between the various parties, i.e., myself, Tommy Morrison (of Sporting International), Borge, Borge's attorney, other hunters involved and other professional hunters.

Barbara, the crux of the matter is that Borge originally screwed me and Greg Walla (from Houston) in June of 2012. Tommy Morrison (Sporting International) did everything possible in his power to rectify the screwing Borge gave us. Ultimately, Tommy was able to get Greg a partial refund of $25,000.00- Greg's total outlay was $43,500.00.

Tommy talked me into returning to hunt with Ngong in May, 2013. Tommy offered to accompany me and Tony McCorvey (from Houston, he replaced Greg Walla) at his own expense. I want to state very clearly that I harbor no ill feelings towards Tommy Morrison. I believe Tommy has done everything possible to resolve this fiasco, but without Borge's cooperation, nothing can be done.

As of today, Borge insists that the only reason we don't have our skins and horns from May 2013 (bongo, etc) is that the Cameroon governmental officials are demanding a bribe from Borge to sign the export papers, and Borge refuses to pay the bribe.

Barbara, I have a real hard time believing that the Cameroon government is the problem. I have friends that have recently hunted with Faro West and they all had their skins and horns within 8 months. One and a half years later, we still don't have our skins. I think the real problem is either Borge is broke or he is unscrupulous, or he is both, broke and unscrupulous.

Additionally, Tony and Mitzy McCorvey and Tommy Morrison hunted lord derby and roan with Borge Ladefoged and Ngong in January 2013, and they still do not have their skins andlor horns from that safari. Steve Smith from Houston hunted bongo with Ngong/Borge in June 2011, and he still does not have his bongo skins and horns.

Mr. Tommy Morrison

Channelview, TX 77530


Tommy,
I booked a safari for bongo through you in January 2012 to hunt with Ngong Safaris' Borge Ladefoged in Cameroon based solely on your recommendation. I convinced my good friend and hunting partner, Greg Walla, to join me on this safari. Greg was also primarily hunting for bongo. Greg and I went to SCI in Vegas 2012 for the most part to meet with Borge Ladefoged to go over the details for our bongo safari. In our meeting with Borge, he promised that he would personally guide me on the safari and that Greg and I would be the only two hunters in camp. The Ngong Safari brochure also states that there will be only two hunters in camp.

JUNE 3, 2012 - SUNDAY
Greg and I arrived in Douala with the understanding that we would air charter to the forest camp on Tuesday, June5.

JUNE 4, 2012 - MONDAY

On Monday evening another hunter, Horst Baier from Miami, Florida, arrived at the hotel where we were staying (Le Meridian) at approximately 5:30 p.m., and we were introduced to Horst and also Austin Nick from New York and Austin's videographer, Martin Muller (from HP Productions in Bloemfontein, South Africa; phone: 27515224326)- both of these hunters told Greg and I that they were also hunting bongo with Borge Ladefoged. That was our first indication that we were in trouble - Borge had promised only two hunters. Now we find out that there are going to be four hunters. Horst Baier was also troubled because he was told, as we were, that there would only be two hunters in camp.

As the conversation continued, Horst and I discovered that we had another problem as Borge had promised me face to face in Vegas at SCI 2012 to personally guide me and Horst had a letter from his booking agent (Bob Kern at The Hunting Consortium) that Borge was to guide Horst. Also that evening, Borge's representative, Benoit Godefroy, tried to collect money from all four of the U.S. hunters (Greg Walla, Horst Baier, Austin Nick, and myself) for the air charter. At first, Benoit wanted 1,250 euros each - two hours later he wanted 1,500 euros each. Both Horst and Austin told Benoit that they had already paid their fees for the air charter in advance and that they did not owe any money for the charter. After Benoit's attempt to collect air charter money from Horst and Austin failed, Benoit then tried to collect 3,000 euros each from Greg and I. At this point, Greg and I had absolutely no faith in Borge or Benoit. We told Benoit that we refused to give him any money for the air charter, but we would gladly pay the 3,000 euros each directly to the air charter company.

I later called you and asked you to get in touch with Borge to find out what the heck was going on. It is my understanding from my subsequent conversation with your wife, Anna, that you had a heated conversation with Borge, but that Borge confirmed there would be four hunters in camp. Borge told you that he agreed to guide me. Shortly after ending my phone conversation with you at approximately 9:00 p.m. Douala time, I talked to Borge on his satellite phone (Borge was at his forest camp). I told Borge that it was total bullshit that he had booked four hunters at the same time and that he had promised to personally guide two hunters at the same time. Borge apologized and told me that everything would be fine and that everyone would get their game. Borge then asked me if Horst and Austin had already paid for their air charters. I found it very strange that the owner ofNgong Safaris did not even know if his hunters had already paid for the air charter. I now wondered what kind of operator he was. I told Borge that Horst and Austin had already paid for their air charter. Borge then asked me to give Benoit 6,000 euros for the air charter.

JUNE 5, 2012 - TUESDAY

Benoit came to our hotel and had me talk to Borge on Benoit's cell phone. I told Borge that I was not comfortable giving Benoit 6,000 euros and that I preferred to give the money directly to the air charter company. Borge insisted that I give Benoit the 6,000 euros. This was at 10:05 a.m. on Tuesday, June 5. Borge told me that the charter would be ready at approximately 11 :00 a.m. this same day to take the four hunters (Horst, Austin, Greg and me) and Austin's videographer, Martin Muller, to the forest camp. Greg and I reluctantly gave Benoit 6,000 euros.

11 :00 a.m. comes and goes - no plane. Now Benoit tells us the plane will be at 1 :00 p.m. 1 :00 p.m. comes and goes and no plane. Now the story is 2:30 - 2:30 p.m. and still no plane. However, Benoit tells us the plane will be back at the air charter hanger by 3 :00 p.m. and we will go then, get on the plane, and leave. All four hunters insist on going to the hanger to wait so we could load, leave, and get to the forest camp before dark as it gets dark at 6:00 p.m. and the flight is 2-1/2 hours. Benoit will not take us to the charter hanger. The new story is that the plane is in the air and as soon as it lands, we will go the plane. At 4:00 p.m. Benoit now tells us that the plane will be at the hanger at 4:30 p.m. and then we can go talk to the pilot. At 5:00 p.m. we are told the pilot has landed and gone home. Benoit now tells us that the plane will leave Wednesday, 6/6/12, at approximately 8:00 a.m.

JUNE 6, 2012 - WEDNESDAY

The next day, Wednesday, June 6, we are to be ready to leave at 8:00 a.m. Benoit does not show up. At 10:30, the videographer, Martin Muller, finally calls Benoit on his cell phone and Benoit tells Martin that we are driving to camp and that we cannot fly because the pilot is sick. At about 2:00 p.m., Benoit and his four SUV's show up to take the hunters and videographer to camp. Greg, myself, Austin Nick, Horst Baier, and Martin Muller, his videographer, insist on going to the charter company to find out the truth. For about 15 minutes Benoit refuses to take us to the charter company. Greg, Horst, and I tell him either he takes us to the charter company or we will get a taxi and go. Benoit finally agrees to take us. We go to the charter company that Borge was supposed to have paid. The plane is there, but the pilot is in France and has been gone since Sunday, 6/3/12, and wouldn't return until Sunday, 611 0112. So the truth came out - the plane was never going to fly on Tuesday, June 6, as we had been told. In fact the plane had not flown for anyone on Tuesday because the pilot was in Paris.

We now go to the other charter company in Douala, Air Affaires Cameroon. This is the air charter company Benoit says Borge used until 2011. Greg and I go into AAC and talk with both Jacqueline Ngassa, Director of Commerce, and Nathaline Mganso, Managing Director of AAC. They confirm that Borge was using AAC until last year. Both Jacqueline and Nathaline quoted Greg and I a price of9,000 euros to fly us to Borge's forest camp. Two problems - 1) AAC will only take cash - no credit cards, and 2) they cannot fly until Friday, June 8. Benoit, now understanding that Borge is caught, calls Borge on his satellite phone at about 3:00 p.m. while we are still at AAC. Borge talks to me and tells me that the plane could not fly on Tuesday, June 5, due to weather. This is one of today's "new" stories. Borge asks me what we are doing, and I tell him we are getting our own air charter. Borge asks with whom, and when I tell him with AAC, Borge says he has never heard of AAC. Borge then tries to talk Greg, Austin, his videographer Marin Muller, and me into driving to camp - at this point Horst Baier had already left Douala driving to camp. I tell Borge that if he wants Greg and me to drive to camp, then he must personally drive to Douala and drive Greg and me to camp. Borge refuses our request saying his vehicles are all gone already (this, too, was later proven not to be true).

At 4:00 p.m., Benoit finally convinces Austin Nick and his videographer, Martin Muller, to leave, driving to camp with only 2-112 hours of daylight. Before Ausin leaves, he tells me that his grandfather, Alan Sackman, still does not have his trophies back from Borge from two years ago. Borge continues trying to convince Greg and me to drive to camp. I tell Borge I will give him a list of demands regarding Greg and I driving to camp. I then called you and gave the same list to you. I tell you to call Borge and get his assurance on my demands. You cannot get Borge to answer his satellite phone, so you emailed Borge. The list is as follows:

1) Benoit (the only English speaking person we know) must drive us to the rendezvous point to meet Borge's people halfway to camp.
2) Borge must have an English speaking person at the rendezvous point to take us the second half of the trip or Benoit must take us the entire way to the forest camp.
3) We must overnight in a motel at the halfway point as we don't want to drive at night. (Too many people, including the two ladies at AAC, had told us it was too dangerous to drive at night. This fact was verified by the two hunters and one professional hunter that had to make the drive because Borge did not pay his half of the last charter. These three guys are professional hunters Fred Rademeyer of Northern Operations Africa in Coral Gables, Florida, Tommy Haas from Riverton, Utah, and Steve Grove from Dallas, TX. These three guys told me that it was a drive from hell that took 23 hours 49 minutes 11 seconds. All three told me that the drive was totally unsafe and that they would never do the drive again. Professional hunter, Fred Rademeyer, told me that he would never subject one of his clients to such unsafe circumstances.)
4) I want Borge's assurance that there are four professional hunters and four vehicles in camp.
5) Borge is to guide me and Kim is to guide Greg. V
6) Borge must agree to drive us back to Douala leaving 6117112, driving 6117/12 and 6/18112 so we can be in Douala for our 6/19112 flight. (At this point we cannot trust that Borge will pay the charter company, and we don't want to be stuck in camp.)

My understanding is that your continued attempts to contact Borge via satellite phone and email until 2:00 a.m. Texas local time to get Borge to agree to our terms, all failed.

Here are the irrefutable facts:
1) Borge's brochure states only two hunters in camp - he booked four. He also told me in person that Greg and I would be the only hunters in camp.
2) Borge received 6,000 euros from Greg and me by demanding we give Benoit 6,000 euros for a charter that Borge knew could not possibly fly. I had refused to give cash to Benoit until Borge directly insisted to me that I do so.
3) Borge repeatedly had different stories about the charter flight. Borge told you that the plane wasn't leaving due to pilot being sick. The pilot was not even in Douala - he had gone to Paris on Sunday, June 3, and was not scheduled to return until Sunday, 6110112.
4) Borge denies ever using and/or even knowing about Air Affaires Cameroon even though both Benoit and AAC told me otherwise.
5) Borge refused to personally come to Douala to get us to camp. Borge's excuse for not coming to Douala to drive us to camp was that there were no vehicles in camp - there were still at least two vehicles left in camp. This fact was given to me by Greve Christian (email call@hvidkilde.dk), one of Borge's hunters that had to drive back to Douala because our air charter never made it to camp and Greve was to return on our charter.
6) Borge knowingly put our lives in danger by forcing us to have only one way to get to hunting camp by driving 24 hours - some of which is unpaved, unmarked roads.
7) There is no confusion that the air charter is not the issue. The issue is the fact that Borge had so many different stories that Greg and I got to the point where we lost all faith in Borge.

I am a very experienced hunter with 11 African safaris, 9 Alaska hunts, North American Grand Slam, Mexico, New Zealand, 6 trips to Canada, and too many lower 48 states trips to count. I have been stranded in Alaska for days waiting on the weather, missed connections in cities and towns due to weather and/or mechanical failures, so I am very experienced with difficulties that can arise with hunting trips. But this mess was caused solely by Borge Ladefoged.

While I do not know why Borge repeatedly changed stories, I suspect he is in some type of financial trouble .: As all of the stockbrokers' disclaimers state: "Past performance may not be indicative of future performance." I am well aware that in the past Borge had many satisfied customers. Well, this is the present - end of story. He broke our contract by booking four hunters in camp instead of just two. He took 6,000 euros from us knowing perfectly well that we were not going to air charter to camp, and he had total disregard for our lives by trying to force us on an unsafe drive to camp.

Tommy, at your request I am holding off going public to give you time to speak with Borge and give him the opportunity to do what is right. I will personally contact the Safari Club International Ethics Committee and ask for Borge to be banned from The Safari Club International Convention

as well as Dallas Safari Club and Houston Safari Club. I will send a complete report to "The Hunting Report" to be printed and distributed all over the world. Greg and I were wronged and I will not

stand by and let it happen. I have also contacted my attorney to consider a lawsuit.

They have demanded a refund and honestly I believe you owe them one.

You voided the Safari Contract when you booked four hunters into your camp when your brochure says there will only be two hunters. They could have left for home when they found out there would be four hunters in camp and you would have been obligated to refund their money. I convinced them to stay and then you had the charter fiasco. From that point everyone has a story about what the Charter Company and others said to whom and none matched the other causing Rick & Greg to be very suspicious of everything being said. The end result was the charter was not going to take the hunters to camp. You then came up with a plan to drive them to the forest camp with an ovemight stay at some motel on the way. Rick & Greg were very reluctant to make the drive and obviously very upset at this point. They then contacted me again and asked for me to confirm with you the reliability and safety of your plan and my advice on what they should do. I contacted you by phone several times yesterday with discussions on the subject. In our last conversation I agreed to speak with them in hopes of finding a solution and I said I would call you back in a few hours with an answer. After speaking with Rick and getting an agreement I sent you an email with the answer and tried to call you back many times that aftemoon and night without any answer. I find it strange that up to mid day I was easily able to get you on the phone and then suddenly you never answered the phone again even though you knew I would be calling back with an answer. I suspect you turned off the generator and phones at 10:00pm your time and went to bed with no concern of waiting up for my return call. A call, that should have been very important to you. I, on the other hand, stayed up last night and tried calling you every hour until 2:00 am this moming with no answer. At midnight I called Rick & Greg since it was 6:00am in hopes they had spoken to you and all was in agreement. They informed me that they also had not heard back from you all evening so they had decided to go home. At that point there was nothing else for me to do but to say good night. I did stay up an additional 2 hours still trying to get you on the phone in hopes of salvaging the safari. Borge I have done everything I could to salvage this safari but I do not believe you went the extra mile to make things happen. I believe you owe these clients a refund, they did not break the contract, you did. They then agreed to still go on the safari, make the drive, only asking for some reasonable requests. Yet you seemed unconcerned what they wanted as you did not wait up for my phone call or try to call me for an answer. You also have two paying clients in camp which is all you are suppose to have so the cost to you for these extra hunters is minimal.

I had them ready to take the drive and go hunting except they wanted your guarantee that you would have an English speaking driver return them to Douala on June is" and several other issues listed in the email below. I could not reach you and you did not contact them, so they would not leave Douala.

After arriving in Douala and meeting the Sackman's grandson & the client that you booked through Jeff Neal they realized you Double Booked the Safari and there would be four (4) hunters in camp not two (2). At that point you lost all credibility with Rick & Greg. Over the next 2 days they became increasingly suspicious of the things you were saying, especially since everyone they spoke to were contradicting what you were telling them. They are extremely upset and convinced you have been lying to them the whole time. I'm not sure who all they talked to at the Charter companies and other places but they were all contradicting what you were saying. I'm sure Ben Wah or Emil will know the people.

I still believe in you! However it is difficult after listening to the contradicting stories Rick has been telling me over the phone. I do feel that you did not communicate with them enough and help them through the issues and problems they were having in Douala. Over the last 2 1 2 days I have talked to Rick over 20 times trying to keep him calm, listening to the problems, trying to help him find solutions and convince him everything would be okay once they got to the bush. This was Your job, not mine! Borge, how many times did you actually call them to help solve the problems, calming their fears and showing them your concern about their predicament???

Borge, I'm not sure where the fault lies in this mess but it certainly is not mine or Rick & Greg's! I do not blame them for coming home. They had lost all confidence in you & your ability to get them back to Douala in time to catch their flight home. Had you not Double Booked this Safari and been more communicative all this may have never happened!

Obviously, they did not make their safari of no fault of their own and they expect a full refund of the money they have paid.

I would appreciate a response to this email as soon as possible.

I have spoken to Rick again and if you agree to the termS below and they do go on the safari, they want to be back in Douala on June 18 so they can be sure to catch their flight home on the 19th. They want an English speaking driver to be on standby to take them by vehicle in case the charter does not show up to take them back to Douala. If they have to drive then they will need to depart camp on the 17th to be in Douala by the 18th

PLEASE CONFIRM THESE ARRANGEMENTS AS WELL

Borge: I cannot get through on any of your phone numbers.
I've spoken to Rick and calmed them down a little. I need the following guarantee from you and I believe Rick and Greg will drive to camp in the morning.

1. They must leave at 6:00 am in the morning and overnight at the hotel you promised and then onward to your camp the following morning. They will NOT drive at night.
2. They want whoever meets them at that hotel and drives them to camp the following morning to speak English.
3. Since Ben Wah is their driver tomorrow, can he also take them to camp the following morning? Does Ben Wah know how to get to your camp?
4. Both Rick and Greg hunt 1X1 with separate guides. You will be Rick's guide and Kim will be Greg's guide. They will not share a guide on a 2X1 basis at anytime.
Please reply immediately with your guarantee.
Shoot straight and stay downwind,

I just today at noon Houston time spoke to Horst Baier, [from Miami] the guy that was hunting bongo with Borge at the same time Greg and I were suppose to hunt [this is the guy Bob Kern booked}.

Horst told me that Borge was over charging for the air charter flight, he says the P.H. from the neighboring camp Martin O. Neuper [Lowveld Hunters] says the charter is 2600 euros not the 3000 euros Greg and I were charged. Horst met the guys that were hunting with Borge just ahead of our scheduled arrival---he met them on the road as they were driving back to Douala as Horst was driving into Borge's camp.

One of the hunters is Greve Christian, [ I have his email address] both of these hunters told Horst that Borge was lying about the rain keeping the plane from flying into the forest or the rain keeping Borge from talking on his satellite phone as he told you because there was NO RAIN the last few days they were in camp June 4, 5 and 6.

Horst and Alan Nick and Martin Muller the videographer had to drive back to Douala---no plane to take them back. Horst said he nearly got in a fist fight with Borge as Horst really got on Borge for all his lies.

Horst hunted with Borge's future son-in-law, he liked the young man and got a bongo on the last day.

Horst said the food was fine but the atmosphere was not as Horst said he hardly even spoke to Borge------sounds like a horrible way to spend two weeks to me.

Horst told me he will be writing his letter to the hunting report this weekend.

I spoke with Horst Baier again over the past weekend.

As you know from my previous email Horst had to drive back to town at the end of his safari. Horst questioned Borge as to why Horst paid 3,000 euros for his air charter when the charter company has charging 2,600 euros, Borge would not answer him.

Horst then asked for a refund of the 3,000 euros for the charter because he had to drive to camp, approx. 21 hours each way---Borge told him that it cost lots of money to drive and he was not going to refund any money for the charter. Horst also told me that in his opinion Borges area will not support 4 bongo hunters at the same time-----Horst does not believe that the area is big enough with enough roads for 4 bongo hunters all at the same time. Horst said he did not get his bongo until the last hunting day.

Horst told me that there were only 3 P.H.'s in camp---Borge-his daughter---and his future son-in-law. It is Horst opinion that had Greg and I went to camp 2 of the then 4 hunters would have been hunting 2xl.

Borge,
I am sending you & your lawyer friend a copy of their contracts by separate email.

You and I both know there have always been only two hunters in camp. That was your original request and my agreement that if I only booked one hunter in a particular date you would fill the second opening so that the clients would share the charter going and coming out of camp. Remember, I helped you with your booking chart for years.

Borge, I have supported you for many years, helped you get a start in the American Market, backed you with my reputation and helped you get to where you are today by booking many hunters and introducing you to the right people in this business. I have always respected you as one of the most intensive hunters I know and one that I could trust to always do the right thing by my clients.

Yes, I am having a difficult time supporting you on this issue. Not because Rick and Greg are good clients and friends but because I feel you are not treating them fairly. There is something wrong with this charter mess and you and I both know it. I'm not being told the whole truth. Yes, it was Rick and Greg's decision not to make the drive to camp but I don't blame them. Everyone in Douala was telling them you were lying about the charters, had not paid the charter company for prior clients flights and you insisted they pay Beniot for the charters when you knew they would not be able to fly.

Also, neither Greg and Rick or I could reach you to confirm you would guarantee to get them back in Douala before their flight departed. They paid for 12 days of hunting and by the time they would have reached camp by driving and returned to Douala by driving they would have lost over one third of their hunting days. I find it difficult to believe even you and your team of PH's could get all four hunters bongo and the other game they wanted in that short of time. They also booked the safari with the belief a charter would take them to camp. Very few clients would book your safari if they knew they would have to take a 36 hour drive on a very dangerous road to get to your camp.

Borge be honest with yourself, you know the fair and just thing to do is refund them the amount I suggested. You did not provide the services you promised, nor did you spend all they paid you on preparing for their safari. I also know you personally promised Rick in Vegas he and Greg would be the only two hunters in camp.

Now please do what is right and refund them the money requested.

Regards,

Tommy Morrison
President

Yes, you spent money on food, PH's and hunting license, but I know of nothing else. You cannot expect to hold their funds because you bought a new car. When I booked both Rick & Greg, according to you and your brochure, there were to be only two hunters in camp. So if you had to buy a new vehicle, it was for the other two hunters you double booked.

I already refunded my full commission back to Rick and Greg and I did nothing wrong but completely fulfill my obligations. All of my arrangements were properly completed. However, there are times when these things must be done to prove your honesty and integrity in business andto improve the goodwill of your clients.

I talked with Rick & Greg and they will not return on a hunt. They want a refund. They say your offer is unacceptable as they already paid for the hunt and the charter so all you were giving them is a bongo trophy fee.

I may get them to settle for less than the full amount but they are being very difficult. They do not believe you are out any monies on their safari since you were only suppose to have two hunters in camp and that's what you ended up with after they left.

I think you should make a substantial offer on the money they paid on their daily rate plus the money for the air charter. I have already refunded them my commission.

It is not worth all the bad publicity you and I will receive. I know Rick and he will do exactly what he says he will do.

That sort thing has happen before to an exhibitor, besides Rick knows the Sackman's, Sadler's, Barnhart's and Cunningham's etc. He has already found out that Alan has not yet received his bongo he took with you several years ago and the Sadler's have also not received their trophies. Why haven't they received their trophies??? Miquel Zaldivar has just sent me an email asking when his trophies will be shipped.

Tony McCorvey and Steve Smith who were coming with me next year for eland, have also been contacted by Rick and they are considering canceling for fear of never receiving their trophies.

During todays first telephone conversation with Pierre Guerrini he opened up the sore subject of my experience with Ngong Safaris in June 2012.

I gave Pierre a brief account of the screwing Borge gave Greg Walla and me. I asked Pierre who he uses for meet and greet services for his hunters in Douala---unfortunately Pierre told me he is using the same that Borge uses---Emil and Benoit. I told Pierre that I would not book a hunt with him if he was going

to have either Emil or Benoit meet us at the airport and take care of us while in Douala. After I explained to Pierre all of the misery that Emil and Benoit put Greg and I thru Pierre promised that

if Greg and I book a hunt with Faro West that Pierre would have one of his Professional Hunters---either Charles or [excuse the spelling] Franq personally meet us in Douala and escort us to the

forest and escort us back to Douala at the conclusion of our safari. Furthermore Pierre promised to investigate my claims against Emil and Benoit and their refusal to refund the 6,000 euros cash

that Greg and I gave Benoit for our charter to the forest that never came to be. Pierre phoned back today at 11:30 a.m. Houston time to tell me the following: Pierre called Emil on his cell phone just prior to calling me back, Emil supposedly told Pierre that Emil used our 6000 euros as follows---

Emil kept 1500 euros for past debts that Borge owed Emil
Emil arranged to have the other hunters going into Borge's forest camp to be driven to camp that cost 2000 euros
Emil paid to have those same hunters driven back out of the forest.
Emil paid the remainder to AAC Air Affaires Cameroun for past debts that Borge owes them.
Tommy, I think it is best that you verify my understanding of what I think Pierre said to be sure I understood Pierre correctly.

Subject: Mr.Young and Mr. Walla - discontinued safari

Dear Tommy.

As earlier informed I had a meeting Friday 27 July 2012 with Borge here in Copenhagen to clarify what has actually transpired in relation to the discontinued safari of Mr Young and Mr Walla in order for Borge to reply to your proposal and the contemplated actions of said two clients. I called you Friday following the meeting to discuss but did not reach you and accordingly I am writing you in stead as I told your secretary I would be doing.

In order for the parties to reach a solution I think it would be helpful to ascertain where we disagree - particularly with regard to the sequence of events as they took place - and hence I will try to render "our side of the story" for you to comment on.

As it appears from the contract the arrival date in Douala for the two clients was scheduled to occur on 5th June 2012 with transfer to the hunting area by air' charter on 6th June 2012. However as far as I am informed the two gentlemen arrived in Douala on 3rd June 2012 with scheduled departure to the hunting area on 5th June 2012 - but this discrepancy has probably no implication in relation to what we are discussing.

As far as I am informed the problems started on 5th June 2012 when the scheduled departure with the air charter was cancelled and moved to the following day - 6th June 2012. As you are probably aware the charter was made with African Connection (which is the charter airline that Borge has used for many years) and was a co-charter with PH Pepe Chelet, who also had clients to bring to the bush. On 5th June 2012 Borge was in telephonic contact with Pepe Chelet who informed him that the scheduled flight had been cancelled by African Connection due to "problems", but that the flight would leave next morning on the 6th June 2012 from Douala at 09.00 AM. At the time neither Pepe Chelet nor Borge had any insight into what the real nature of such problems was as African Connection was not sharing at such junction any details of such problems.

At 07.00 AM next morning on the 6th June 2012 Borge was in telephonic contact with Benoit who confirmed that the flight was scheduled to arrive at 09.00 AM same day. At 09.00 Borge called Benoit again to obtain confirmation to the effect that the flight had arrived - which is Borge's standard procedure. However Benoit now contrary to Borge's expectation informed him that the flight was delayed - again due to non-specified "problems". When Borge called Benoit one hour later at 10.00 AM he was informed that the flight was cancelled.

From this point followed various communication between Mr. Young, Mr. Walla, you, Borge, Emile, Benoit - and maybe others too that we are not aware of. However the essence is that some time in the afternoon of the 6th June 2012 Borge agreed with Mr. Young that he and Mr. Walla would travel by car to the bush on the 3 conditions you confirmed in your e-mail of 6th June 2012/11.12 AM. As far as Borge recalls Mr. Young mentioned during his conversation with Borge that he would have you write an e-mail with the terms agreed, but Borge was not made aware and certainly did not understand that he should confirm the agreement he had confirmed with Mr. Young with you to make this a valid and firm agreement. At this point - rightly or wrongly - Borge was of the firm impression that an agreement had been reached with Mr. Young and Mr. Walla and he did not call you - which in hindsight obviously he should have done - as he was now focused on delivering the agreed deal. To make things worse heavy rain set in which made communication from the bush impossible.

In accordance with the agreement Borge made with Mr. Young a car was sent to the hotel at the agreed time in the morning of 7th June 2012. However Mr. Young and Mr. Walla apparently reneged on the agreement made with Borge the day before and stayed at the hotel without appearing for the departure. When Benoit went to look for them and found them having breakfast he was apparently told that they wanted to finish their breakfast before coming - implying they knew they had made an agreement with Borge to go by car this early morning. When they still did not appear Benoit went to talk with them again and was now told that they did not want to go without any explanation being offered. Borge called Emile later in the morning of the 7th June 2012 - as is his standard operating procedure - and was told that the car had left with the hunters. Due to a misunderstanding in such communication Borge did not get the impression that this did not include Mr. Young and Mr. Walla and therefore Borge took no further action. (As regards the following events surrounding the 2 gentlemen's departure from Cameroun I believe there is ~agreement and I will therefore not elaborate further in respect of events which occurred from that time on.

However I would like to address certain claims and innuendo:

It has been claimed that Mr. Young and Mr. Walla were promised (directly or indirectly) that they would be the only hunters in the camp. This does not appear from the contract and neither is it something that Borge would normally agree to. On the contrary it is mentioned in Borge's standard terms and conditions that there must be a minimum of 2 hunters in the camp - implying that the prices mentioned are conditional upon a minimum of 2 hunters - not a maximum. If the 2 gentlemen had wanted the camp for themselves this condition should have been in the contract.

It has been claimed that the reason for the cancellation of the charter was that Borge owed African Connection money or did not pay them. This is not true. A communication between African Connection and Borge's co- charter Pepe Chelet has recently come into the possession of Borge. I am attaching this communication which was sent by African Connectin to Pepe Chelet on the morning of 6th June 2012 but only much later came to the awareness of Borge. Incidentally Pepe Chelet who brought his clients by car to the bush on this occasion - did not share this e-mail on receipt thereof for reasons unknown to Borge. As it will appear the problems of the charter had nothing to do with Borge or Pepe Chelet for that matter but was solely due to "political risk" problems of African Connection with the local authorities on which Borge had no involvement or influence at all.

As I mentioned when we spoke on the phone Borge would however like to see this matter closed and settled as this whole thing does not benefit neither him, you, Mr. Young

Borge likes to see his clients happy with top trophies and stories to go with them and this is normally what every hunter coming to Borge's camp has experienced including the 2 other hunters in camp on the relevant occasion who chose to go by car. They shot what they came for - Elephant, Bongo, Sitatunga and Duikers. In line with this Borge would like to repeat his offer to Mr. Young and Mr. Walla to come back and hunt for Bongo next -year and anything else they want (except for Eiephant) to hunt in the forest without any additional payment and where Borge will pay the trophy fees and air charter on to of thiS. If thiS IS

of interest to Mr. Young and Mr. Walla Borge is also prepare a e e 2 gentlemen arrange their own air charter from Douala and into the bush (hopefully making them more comfortable about the logistic

situation) against a payment by Borge of the amount he normally charges for such charter as per his standard terms and conditions. If Bongo is no longer of interest Borge is also prepared to make a

proposal for LD Giant Eland hunt at his northern camp. Borge is of the firm impression and hope that he will be able turn the 2 gentlemen around to forget about the logistic problems they

experienced the first time around if they are given the opportunity to experience Borge's rain forest hunt.

Alternatively and notwithstanding that Borge is of the opinion that Mr. Young and Mr. Walla have reneged on the agreement made with Borge on 6th June 2012 and hence are entitled to no refund. Borge is also prepared to offer to refund 50% of the amount he received from Mr. Young and Mr. Walla respectively

i.e. EUR 10,560 each - which comes to a total of EUR 21,120. The reason for the 50/50 is that both parties could have acted in a more "considerate" way towards each other - and hence no party should accept to be the sole party to blame.

Both proposals - which are made without prejudice - are conditional upon an undertaking by all parties that they will be bound by confidentiality not to talk about this incident privately or publicly. Borge has been contacted by clients who have heard about this incident on the "grape wine" and with details about Borge's alleged payment problems which - I must say - constitutes slander. I will query - without any rude intent - to what extent the experience of Mr. Young and Mr. Walla extends to assessing information coming out of Central Africa where everybody is pursuing their own agenda. But judging from what you have told me about Mr. Young and Mr. Walla as being very straight and honest people I do not think that is the kind of communication they would like to see themselves associated with. Hence I would hope that we can all move forward now with the above - in my view generous - proposals which I presume that you, having known and respected Borge for many years will know has not come easily in a matter like this where Borge's lnteqrity is attacked. Please let me have your thoughts.

Tommy

I read the email from Mr. Troels Askerud [Borge's attorney] which quite frankly I found very disgusting to say the least. I do agree with Troels that arrival dates have nothing to do with the issue but obviously Borge knew our arrival date or he would not have had Benoit meet us at the airport nor would Borge have told me on his satellite phone that our charter plane was ready to fly us to the forest the next day. All this arrival date issue seems to be one more of Borge's bullshit tactics.

In his email Troels states that we were to fly with African Connection----this is the same company that Borge told me himself on june s" [via his satellite phone with me talking on Benoit's cell phone] that Borge had never heard of this companv+-so all the bullshit about problems with the air charter company is just that BT. The real problem is Borge owed more money than the 6000 euros Greg and I gave Benoit and the charter company would not fly due to Borge's bad credit with them.

I have developed a relationship with other people in Cameroon I have verified what I just said.

Greg and I never agreed to go by car to the forest and Tommy you know yourselfthis is a fact as we told you to confirm with Borge our requirements for Greg and I to go to the forest by car but Borge never answered you. Borge claims that heavy rains prevented satellite phone communication----well Boge's hunters that were in camp at the time tell me that there WERE NOT any rains in the forest camp at the time in fact they said it did not rain at all June 4,5 or6---1 can furnish their name and email contact to verify this.

Now to the number of hunters, Troels says we should have got in writing that we were to be the only 2 hunters in camp- ---in fact Borge's sales brochure states that but on top of that Borge told both Greg and I to our face [ at SCI in Vegas] that we would be the only hunters in camp. I am sure that we were not the only people that were under that understanding as Mr. Horst Baier who actually did drive to the forest when Greg and I were to hunt with Borge was also told that there would only be 2 hunters in camp, I also have Horst contact information to verify this.

Tommy I take Borge's offer to refund 10,560 euros as a total insult.

All total with hotels, commercial airfare, fees paid for the hunt and the air charter we paid for, Greg and I are out just over $45,000 u.s. which does not include our lost time/income.

I have tan's of information and many names and contact information that have first hand knawledge about this mess and I have their permission to. use it.

The first thing I will do. is contact everyone that offers bongo hunts, then every booking agency in the world that I can find, next the hunting report followed by SCI internatianal and all of the chapters thru out the world and every single SCI individual member.

I don't care if it cost me $20,000 to spread the information about the screwing Borge gave me.

Rick/Greg:

Firstly, I believe you know I back any decisions you make and will do my utmost to see that you get what you want out of your demands. As you know, I am on your side, yet I am still trying to act as a negotiator with Borge and Troels. I feel this was my best course of action to get the results wanted for you and still keep some type of communication line open with Borge. Your letter is very straight forward, well written and there is no mistake of how you feel. I believe the letter is a little strong, yet it may be necessary in getting what you want. The letter is obviously written by you, Rick, but I think you should make it clear that Greg is in 100% agreement on how you feel. I think you stated the facts very plainly and backed them up with explanations of your research. I do not want to see you lose a chance to get some kind of refund so be sure you are committed to what it says. I honestly don't know how this will play out after the letter is sent. I do believe the letter will either get you what you want or create a stonewall with no compromise.

I had hoped you might decide to take Borge's offer and go for the Bongo again. Obviously, it is the most economical approach to this issue, although, it may be hard to swallow. I hate to see you lose that much money if Borge gets hard headed because he's backed into a corner. I believe I have a very good chance of making it work for you, by being there with you, having direct contact with the charter company and Troels and some very stringent agreements with Borge. However, I know it would be difficult emotionally to make this safari. Of course there is also a chance I am not able to make it happen the way we would want. In terms of pleasantries with Borge and the other people in camp I'm sure it would not be what you want out of a safari. However, you, Greg and I would have some great campfire camaraderie, I'm sure.

I think this sums it up, let me know what you and Greg decide.

If you decide to send the letter I would consider changing a few words.

Troels)

I think at this point the best thing to do is settle this issue as soon as possible. Discussing what the parties agree or disagree on at this time I believe is mute. The only thing in your letter I believe Mr Young and Mr Walla agree with is they did arrive in Douala on June 3rd and they were suppose to depart by charter to the Forest Camp on June 6, 2012. At this point, Mr Young and Mr Walla are very volital and it has taken a great deal of effort on my part to calm them down. I have hopefully convinced them to try and settle this matter amicably.

What Borge has offered is unacceptable to them when you consider all they have paid to date to Borge, hotel expenses, commericial airfare and the air charter paid to Emil) it totals just over $45,000 each.

They will accept the following per person nothing less:

Refund on daily rate Euros: 10,560
Refund of Sporting International (already paid) Euros: 5,280 Refund of Air Charter (6000 divided by two): 3,000
TotalEuros: 18,840

They are willing to sign an agreement that no hunting report of any kind will be turned in to any organization or hunting club once they receive the refund. They are also very adament that if they do not receive the Euros 18,840 each, they are prepared to contact all hunting organizations, clubs, Safari Club International ethics committee and file a law suit in the United States. I apolize if this sounds like a threat but it is how they feel.

From your conversations I realize Borge does not feel he owes this refund, however Mr Young and Mr Walla did not deserve what occured to them. It is important Borge realize that settling this issue is in his Best Interest.

The reprecussions will be far reaching. We await your reply.

1. you will cease speaking about your safari and it's difficulties
2. you will not turn in any written report regarding your safari or it's difficulties to any person, club or organization
3. you will not file any lawsuits regarding any issues about your safari
You each will receive most ofthe 13,560 euros from the funds I receive from the final payments on two Lord Derby Eland safaris that will be conducted by Ngong Safari in February 2013. I will be refunding each of you 5,280 euros ($6,830 U.S.). The balance will be paid by Ngong Safaris. These payments are due in my office by October 27,2012.

The only way I would accept Borge's offer without you going to club faune is if we could get 2 spots [with the good dates] for 2013 and I get another friend to go on the hunt.
No I would not consider a delay on the refund.

If you consider it important, I will accompany you on the Bongo safari with Club Faune. My budget is tight for next year, as sales have not been good, and I am already scheduled to go on a Lord Derby safari in February. Would you consider delaying the refund of commission to you on the Ngong Bongo safari and let me deduct it from the Lord Derby safari you book? If you feel uncomfortable with this, its okay, and I will pay you in October along with Borge's scheduled refund.

Dear Tommy,
I was working on the invoice ofMr Young and there is something I am not sure I understand clearly.
Mr Young is coming alone on the hunt or with a friend? this friend is Mr Greg Walla?
I know you are coming too and acting as an observer. But what about Mr Greg Walla?
Did he want to come too and hunt? did he changed his mind ?
Please confirm this, I am confused, before I send you the invoice.

Thank you,

Rick will take the April 28-May 14, 2013. Since I have not booked for you before I would appreciate it if you can prepare a deposit invoice for Rick and send it to me. Please include all extra's on the invoice or the accompanying email so I will be sure not to miss any charges. I will then invoice him for the deposit and send you the payment less my commission. I assume my commission is 15% based on the total daily rate. Please advise. I also assume you want his deposit payment sent by wire transfer. Please send wiring instructions. If there are any questions just let me know.

Borge / Troels

We need to bring this matter to an end. Over the last several months I have tried to be a mediator, keeping everyone calm and resolving this issue in a manner that will hopefully be at least acceptable to all parties. I am only the booking agent that represents Ngong Safaris and introduced Mr. Young and Mr. Walla to Borge Lagefoged of Ngong Safaris. I have preformed and completed all of my duties in a proper manner. I had nothing to do with the issues that have occurred. However, because I feel I represent both parties, I have tried to arrange an amicable settlement.

This situation has cost me an untold number of hours of phone calls, emails, etc. plus the $13,660 commission on the safari. I have also had to agree to not charge Mr. Young and Mr. Walla my commission on the rebooking of a future Bongo Safari to get them to agree to a settlement. Since it does not appear they will agree to any settlement in which they return for Bongo with Ngong Safaris, this whole issue will eventually cost me over $20,000. So everyone is loosing on this deal. Therefore, the sooner it's over the better off we all are! I believe Mr. Young and Mr. Walla have expressed how they feel and what they are willing to accept in the email I sent on August 21,2012. We await your response, in hopefully, a very expedient manner.

Dear Tommy.
I propose following dates:
You arrive in Douala May Wednesday 22-05-13, and charter out to the forest Thursday May 23-05-13.
Return Lokomo - Doau1a - Paris Thursday June 06-06-13.
I will be on the same flight from Paris to Doula, and from Douala to Lokomo May 23-05-13
As you will be together with the hunters, I will try if we can get you a Sitatunga. ( If you want)
It is a good idea to sell Wallas Safari for US$ 25.000.- ifhe do not want to go.

Borge/Troels
I'm still waiting on the dates. Is this safari confirmed??? Let's get this DONE before he changes his mind. I hope you understand that this is a fragile deal!

If Walla will not go, instead of Borge having to pay Walla what he agreed, can I try & sell Walla's safari for $25,000 and give the money to Walla. Then Borge does not have to refund any money. I think this works best for everyone. As long as there is NOT more than Young & one other hunter in camp with me as an observer. Your thoughts please ASAP!

Dear Tommy.
Further to your e-mail of 11 September 2012 and with reference to my e-mail to you of 30 July 2012 Borge would like to repeat his offer to Mr. Young and Mr. Walla to come back and hunt for Bongo next year and anything else they want (except for Elephant) in the forest without any additional payment and where Borge will pay the trophy fees and air charter on top of this. Borge is concerned that no hick -ups occur in respect of the charter this time around and would like to make the arrangements in such regard together with you. Furthermore Borge confirms that you will accompany Mr. Young and/or Mr. Walla on the safari as an observer without any payment to Borge. There will only be the 2 hunters and you in camp. Borge has dates available after 15 May 2013 and will contact you directly in respect thereof and in respect of the arrangement of the charter. Please let me know as soon as you know whether both gentlemen will avail themselves of this offer or whether I should proceed with the cash settlement agreement in respect of Mr. Walla.
Ps we will respond re your latest below cash proposal later today.
All the best

Have we got Borge's final complete agreement? And final dates confirmed?
Please arrange that IF we do take this hunt that I hunt with Borge's other male PH not Borge or his daughter.
You may want to think over what all you include or don't include in your deal to sell Greg's hunt, I really think Borge owes the charter and trophy fees to who ever takes the hunt---Greg or ??
My understanding is that the only cost I will have is my commercial airfare and hotel---that is it for me---no trophy fees no charter fees.
I am still waiting on your refund of your commission which I will use to cover my commercial airfare.

I apologize for the delay in responding.
I requested by email a confirmation of dates from Borge and have not received his response. I will also request that Kim be your PH. Your safari daily rate is paid in full. You will not be charged a charter fee or a Bongo trophy fee. You will be responsible for all other fees or charges listed in Ngong Safaris brochure, such as additional trophy fees, pack & dip, freight of trophies, commercial airfare and hotel expenses. You and I have always been straight up with each other and carried a mutual respect because we both believe that's the only way. I trust that you know I worked diligently to get a reasonable settlement for you and Greg on the Bongo safari.

Rick
I am now more confused than you!
I cannot answer your question regarding "all other trophy fees" as I am not sure of Troels intent in writing the email. Borge's original offer was(see the email I sent you on June 21, 2012) the Bongo trophy fee. I never assumed anything different until now. When I originally read Troel's email of Sept 13,2012 I did not pick up on his statement "Borge will pay the trophy fees and air charter on top of this". Ijust assumed he was still referring to the two Bongo trophy fees. The plural in "trophy fees" in his email could actually be read as "any animal taken except for elephant on the safari". I believe it now must be clarified what was meant however the email must be crafted carefully as to not expose the ambiguous statement.
I need to reread some emails and then prepare an email that hopefully will resolve this in your favor. If you have any suggestions just let me know.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: This was the third hunt I did with Ngong Safaris and PH Borge Ladefoged which owns the company. We had a successful hunt, I shot a very nice forest elephant, but things started to go wrong when our charter flight never arrived when the safari was finished. We had to drive with two other clients all the way from Lokomo to Doula a two day drive under very dangerous conditions due to the conditions of the roads and careless driving by truckers. The three clients lost all our bookings as we never made on time to take our original schedule flights. Before departing we were told that the out charter never arrived because Borge owed money to the charter company, he never admitted. But we all had to pay extra money to rebook our flights. The worst part of this hunt is that to this date I have not received my elephant tusks, I have tried through many channels to get my tusks but havenĀ“t been able to do so. The PH, and owner of Ngong Safaris has promised to deliver the tusks arguing that the government changed the personnel in the game department but that he has the tusks. Other hunters that have hunted in Cameroun with other companies have gotten their trophies back in the same year they hunted with no problems. Two other Mexican hunters that have allow me to give their names and which hunted with Borge Ladefoged the same year have not receive their trophies either, Miguel Saldivar and Javier Vasquez. I understand that also US hunters that hunted with Ngong Safaris have not received their trophies either. Borge Ladefoged was in the SCI Convention this year selling safaris. I urge these hunters to be very careful as it seems to me that Borge is unable or is without the resources necessary to deliver what he promises. I do not believe that an outfitter who does not ship trophies to his clients should be allowed in the SCI Convention. I think Mr. Borge Ladefoged needs to be banned from SCI before he makes more damages.
Highlights of Hunt:
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? no
Why? The company will not deliver the trophies and I must assume is very deep problems.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This PH should be banned from attending SCI until he delivers to all his customers all the trophies he owes which I assume might be many.

E-mail from Henrik Prebensen to Ramon Llano, January 7, 2014:

Hello Ramon,

I spoke to Mr. Ladefoged while he was in Denmark during New Year.

It looks like the trophies will be send in 2 lots, and the first lot will be send here in January as Cameroun wildlife Authority has promised to issue the export documents for the fist lot as first thing when then re-open after the Holidays.

Mr. Ladefoged will send me a list so I can see the names of the clients in lot one and lot two.

The Hunting Report

First of all I would like to say that I am very sorry that the transport logistics in connection with Mr. Llanos safari has not been up to standard. However, part of this is a case of force majeure as it was due to circumstances beyond our control.

Air Charter:

It is correct, that the chartered air plane was cancelled, but this had nothing to do whatsoever with any payments or lack hereof on Ngong Safaris part.

The chartered plane was due to arrive from Sao Tome but was denied permit to take off  allegedly due to bad weather. Later the owner of the airline company has informed Ngong Safaris that the actual cause was that the plane had been seized by order of the President of Sao Tome due to a controversy with the airline company.

Regardless of the true cause of the missing flight Ngong Safaris had to arrange an alternative transport from our remote hunting concession in the rain forest of South Eastern Cameroon. Unfortunately it turned out that the only option was to drive by car and this resulted in a delay which meant that the clients missed their planned international flights.

Delay of trophy shipment:

Regarding the delay in trophy shipments the situation is as follows.

It is quite correct that Mr. Saldivar and Mr. Vasquez trophies and one American hunters trophy shipments have been delayed due to problems with a new and inexperienced administration having taken over in conjunction with a new Minster of Forests and Wildlife was appointed in Cameroon. However, this has now been taken care of and all the necessary documents have been issued, enabling the trophies to be on their way to Mexico and The United States within a matter of days. We are awaiting confirmation of which date in September they will leave Yaounde. I shall get back to you as soon as I have this information.

However, as I have informed Mr. Llano, the situation regarding his trophies is different as it contains parts of a forest elephant.

When the authorities of the European Union decided to introduce a moratorium in issuing import licences for hunting trophies of elephants from Cameroon, the Cameroonian authorities decided to stop issuing export licences for this species regardless of end destination.

Unfortunately it escaped my notice that the Cameroonian authorities at a later point in time once again began issuing these export licences to countries outside USA and the European Union. This is obviously was an error on my side which I deeply regret and which I am working hard to rectify as soon as possible.

Due to the situation with the authorities and my mistake as mentioned already, the shipment of Mr. Llanos trophies has been delayed far longer than reasonable. To make matters worse, a representative of the Cameroonian authorities has consequently demanded payments for a new hunting licence and new government fees for Mr. Llanos trophies although these payments have already been made once. This has alerted the president of Cameroons Professional Hunters Association who has challenged it as it is very unlikely that there are legal grounds to make such a demand.

I have informed Mr. Llano in writing about these unfortunate facts, and he has replied that if I needed financing the re-payment for the hunting licence and the trophy fees, he would send me the amount. But obviously Mr. Llano shall not under any circumstances pay again for fees already paid to the authorities.

If the outcome of the case against all expectations should be that these fees must be paid again, I shall naturally do so without any costs to Mr. Llano whatsoever. On September 12th 2014 we have again asked the Cameroonian authorities when we can expect a final decision.

In the unlikely event that the trophy fees have to be paid again and a new hunting licence issued, this can only happen after December 1st. 2014 when according to Cameroonian hunting law a new season begins.

No-one regrets this very unfortunate chain of events more than I  regardless that the causes are a combination of force majeure and my error. Obviously it is very important for me that my clients are happy with my services. Accordingly I have offered Mr. Llano a compensation for the unacceptable slow progress in this case. He can have another safari without costs apart from transport, licences and trophy fees for game killed.

Best Regards Børge Ladefoged Ngong Safaris

E-mail from Børge Ladefoged to Ramon Llano, September 15, 2014:

Dear Ramon

I would like to let you know the status of the unfortunate and quite unacceptable delay of your trophy shipment from Cameroon.

As I have told you earlier the causes of this unfortunate situation are numerous. Part of the situation arose when a new and inexperienced administration has taken over in conjunction with the appointment of a new Minster of Forests and Wildlife in Cameroon.

Another part arose when the authorities of the European Union decided to introduce a moratorium in issuing import licences for hunting trophies of elephants from Cameroon, the Cameroonian authorities decided to stop issuing export licences for this species regardless of end destination.

Unfortunately it escaped my notice that the Cameroonian authorities at a later point in time once again began issuing these export licences to countries outside USA and the European Union. This obviously was an error on my side which I deeply regret and which I am working hard to rectify as soon as possible.

To make matters worse, a representative of the Cameroonian authorities has consequently demanded payments for a new hunting licence and new government fees for your trophies - although these payments have already been made once.

This has alerted the president of Cameroons Professional Hunters Association who has challenged the demand as it is very unlikely that there are legal basis to make it and because there are principal aspects of claiming fees paid more than once. Accordingly this matter is also out of my hands.

Obviously you will not under any circumstances be asked to pay again for fees already paid to the authorities. If the outcome of the case against all expectations should be that these fees must be paid again, I shall naturally do so without any costs to you whatsoever. On September 11th 2014 we have again contacted the Cameroonian authorities and asked when we can expect a final decision in this matter and been told, that it should reach us no later than October 1st.

In the unlikely event that the trophy fees have to be paid again and a new hunting licence issued, this can only happen after December 1st. 2014 when according to Cameroonian hunting law a new season begins.

No one regrets this very unfortunate chain of events more than I  regardless of the fact that the causes are a combination of force majeure and my unfortunate error of noticing that export licences were again issued to non-US and non-EU countries.

Obviously it is very important for me that my clients are happy with my services. Accordingly I would like to offer you a compensation for the unacceptable slow progress in this case in shape of a free safari with us of your choice. You will only pay for your transport, government licences and trophy fees for game killed.

I hope this is a small consolation and I expect your trophies to arrive in Mexico very soon.

With my apologies for the unfortunate situation I remain,

Yours sincerely

Børge Ladefoged Ngong Safaris

E-mail from Ramon Llano to Børge Ladefoged, September 16, 2014: 

Borge I appreciate your offer to go on safari , thank you. But what I really want to know is if you are on possession of my tusks, if so I can wait until december or later, just confirm that you have my tusks and that you will ship them eventually. Barbara has written to me with your letter of explanation, I don`t mean any harm to you, I just want my tusks. If Miguels trophies have been shipped, he will let me know and will be very happy.

I think you need to resolve all issues before the next SCI convention as I assume you will be there selling hunts, just please make sure you have solved all issues as it is important that we have closed this controversy.

Sincerely: Ramòn Llano

E-mail from Borge Ladefoged to Tim Jones, December 5, 2014:

Re: Ngong Safaris and delayed trophies

Dear Tim Jones

I would like to keep you updated regarding the unfortunate continuous delay of the trophies for Mr. Smith, Zaldivar and Vazquez. Unfortunately the entire affair is increasingly reminding me of a Catch 22-situation. However, the situation is the following:

The trophies have arrived here in Denmark last month. But according to the authorities new demands of trophy treatment prior to import/transit the Danish Veterinary Inspectors cannot allow the hitherto accepted quality of the dipping and chemical treatment. Accordingly they are treating the shipment as dirty. For this reason the five metal boxes with trophies have been put in quarantine until they have been retreated according to the authorities new demands.

Obviously we are having this done as quickly as possible. Nobody want this matter to be solved more than I, but having faced so much red tape in this case I dare no longer even try to predict when my clients will have their trophies. I can only promise that it will be as soon as possible.

I am told that some of my colleagues are facing the same problems with trophy shipments to Belgium indicating that the problem is related to the common rules of entry to The European Union.

Tomorrow I will leave for Cameroun in order to personally ensure that the necessary procedures are followed in the future and will instruct and supervise our taxidermy and shipping partners here in this respect.

As I have earlier informed my clients it is obviously very important for me that they are happy with my services. It is equally obvious that no one can accept the time span involved in this unfortunate situation. As compensation I have offered my clients a new safari free of charge apart from transport, licences and government fees.

I shall return to you when my clients have received their trophies  hopefully very soon.

Yours sincerely

Ngong Safaris

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Bongo Hunting in Cameroon with Ngong Safaris
April 2011

I recently returned from hunting bongo and sitatunga in the rain forest of Cameroon with Ngong Safaris, with outfitter Borge Ladefoged of Denmark. Borge came highly recommended, and he has had a hunting concession in Cameroon for over 20 years. I personally met him in January 2011 at the Safari Club Convention in Reno, referred by a very experienced hunting friend. During my hunt, I was successful in taking a quality bongo, sitatunga and a couple of blue duikers.

Borge runs a very well organized camp and staff. All employees, including the pygmy staff, are well trained and accommodating:  from the cooks, waiters, drivers, trackers and certainly his professional hunters.

I had the good fortune of being guided by his daughter, a focused 25 year old Danish blond, who knows how to hunt. To guide in Cameroon, you have to go through two years of training, which she completed last year. She has assisted many bongo hunts before, but my hunt was her first as lead guide/professional hunter. Our hunt was a three hour exhaustive pursuit, in the dense, scrappy rain forest. Charlotte directed our five pygmy trackers with the true focus of the professional she has been trained. The hunt was not easy. The bongo doubled back twice, and once we jumped him, he took off.  Yet we caught up with him again, after another 40 minute chase. He even went into the river (and we followed), downstream first, then later, back up the stream.

The bongo hunt was one of the most exhilarating hunts I have ever experienced. Later, on the way home, I had the opportunity to take a forest sitatunga on the same day, which was very satisfying. Charlotte also guided me to successfully taking a couple blue duikers. In summary, I had a very positive hunting experience with Ngong Safaris.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Lord Derby Eland Under the fog of the Serengeti Dust The planning for my hunt for a majestic Lord Derby or giant eland began in Borge Ladefoged's bongo camp in Cameroon in 2001. I was sharing the camp with Shawn Merriman of Colorado, and we both expressed an interest in hunting the Lord Derby eland. Borge talked about these largest of Africa's antelope with great enthusiasm saying they could be the toughest of all antelope to hunt. Hunting them can be from modestly physically demanding to extremely demanding (as mine turned out to be), he said. Shawn returned to Cameroon in 2003, and took his eland with a muzzleloader. I left for my hunt the day after the January 2004 SCI Convention ended, traveling Air France from Los Angeles to Paris, where I spent the night. The next day there was a two and half hour delay because of a snowstorm in Paris and the plane had to be de-iced. I traveled on to Douala, on the west coast of Africa between Nigeria and Guinea, and spent the night there before flying on to Garoua in the far north of Cameroon where Borge met me. From there, we drove about an hour and half into the savanna to our camp, passing the small village of Ngong, which is also the name of the hunting concession. Borge, the owner and professional hunter of Ngong Safaris, was my PH for the 11 and half days of my hunt. He lives in Denmark with his wife and two daughters, but has hunting concessions in both the north and south of Cameroon. His south camp is in the rain forest where he hunts bongo, sitatunga, forest buffalo and other forest species. The north camp where this safari took place has a completely different climate and terrain than the rain forest where I hunted on my previous trip.

The concession was teaming with good numbers of wild and free Lord Derby eland, western roan, western hartebeest, oribi, western bush duiker, Nigerian bohor reedbuck and warthogs. There was also harnessed bushbuck, but I only saw females on this trip. The rams eluded me probably because we spent most of the first nine days hunting eland. On the third day of the hunt we spotted a small herd of eland in the tall grass. Two trophy bulls were moving from our left to right. My shot was from only about 100 yards away, and they were broadside, but I could only see horns and a small portion of the head of one of the bulls. I thought they would move into an opening but they turned and disappeared instead. I was disappointed, but on the other hand pumped up, if that makes sense. I had encountered my first specimens of these majestic animals, and they were a lot bigger than I had expected.

Although there was no shortage of these beautiful animals where we were hunting the challenge grew greater and greater after I missed my first chance. We made a number of unsuccessful stalks that took anywhere from three to five hours. The ashes from the burned grass combined with a very fine powder from the Serengeti Desert made breathing tough at times. Worms emerging from the ground left holes that were ankle twisting blister building, feet-and-leg grinders. This was a much hotter and drier climate than where I had previously hunted bongo in the rain forest.

I shot a nice roan just before dark on the fifth day. (It was so cold that I had worn a down jacket and gloves all day. The dust from the Serengeti blocked the sun and kept the temperature down.) We had stalked within shooting distance when the roan came out from behind a tree and was started towards us. I rested my rifle on Borge's shooting sticks and waited until I got a clear and quartering shot at 120 yards. The bull humped up when the 300-grain Nosler bullet from my .375 H&H Magnum struck it. It then ran approximately 25 yards before going down in a large cloud of dust.

When we all arrived at the spot, we found only one drop of blood, however. The roan was gone! We started to track the bull but we quickly ran out of light. In Africa, dusk is short and darkness comes quickly. Borge said we would look for the roan in the morning. We both felt my shot had been a good one, but we shouldn't push the animal. We returned to the spot the next morning at first light, and found one more drop of blood. We were able to follow the roan's tracks though, and ten minutes later we walked up on the bull. It had died on the trail, facing its back trail, waiting to ambush whatever had caused its pain. I was pleased and relieved that we had found it and did not have to track it for two or three days, as can happen. The western roan is probably one of the toughest-to-kill animals in Africa, ranking up there with the Cape buffalo. The roan was the second most important animal for this safari, as the Lord Derby eland is by far the most majestic animal.

On day seven, not long after first light, we encountered a great bull western hartebeest into the Toyota; Hamadu my head tracker shared a piece of the liver he was eating. I ended up eating that piece, as well as the balance of the liver. I had never tasted any better.

Little things, such as this, are what make big memories. On day eight, not too long after first light, we came across the fresh tracks of another group of eland. After a brisk, 40-minute walk, we caught up with the herd and carefully moved ahead of it so we could be downwind. We backed off after seeing no bulls, though. We met up with the same herd a short time later and saw it did have a bull. We stalked that herd all morning and every time we got close to it, there were cows between the bull and us. Borge felt we had pushed the animals hard enough, so we headed back to camp for a lunch break. As we walked back toward the Toyota, we came across the very large tracks of a lion. We looked further and found small group of lion had been "working" the area. Borge said he would have to warn the villagers that there was a pride near them. Back in camp, the first order of business was to take a shower and shed all the trail dust before lunch. A great commotion occurred when five vehicles with horns blaring arrived in a cloud of dust. When the entire group was assembled, they had two trumpeters march in front of the group to announce their arrival. I walked out of my Ronda Val to find myself in the middle of the group of men shaking hands with everybody in sight. I was amazed to learn the Lamido, a Cameroon VIP as powerful as a king, had arrived with the region's governor, police chief and an assortment of bodyguards. A total of 20 people were there to have drinks and friendly talk with Borge. What an honor! I could only watch and enjoy Borge talking with everyone, as I did not speak their French language.

We had seen quite a few warthogs that morning. One had very large tusks. That came between us and the herd of eland we were stalking. We let him go on his merry way not to interfere with the main quarry. Later on n the afternoon, too late to try to stalk one of them, we encountered a big herd of eland with three trophy bulls. We left them before dark promising ourselves that we would return early the next morning to try to find them again. Borge and I knew it would be the big day.

We found the herd's tracks at 6:45am on the ninth day. Borge parked our vehicle off the side of the two-track trail, and he and I loaded our rifles while the trackers picked up our extra water bottles. We would need them that day. An hour and a half later we spotted the herd moving away in front of us. The eland hadn't seen us, but they were moving away. Even undisturbed, the long legs on these animals allow them to travel faster than humans can walk. To catch up, we walked briskly, then trotted, and even ran for a while. We caught up with them several times, almost. Each time I had no chance to shoot. Eventually, I had a one shot opening, but I wasn't quick enough. A cow and small bull walked in front of my target, then the entire herd moved away. Borge said the animals allowed us to get that close because they were tired. We had pushed them for at least six miles that morning.

There was nothing to do except follow their tracks and hope to catch up with them again. A half-mile down the trail we ran out of tracks, and it was a while before our trackers were able to find them. An hour later, though, Borge suddenly set up the shooting sticks and said, "Shoot that bull there!" We had come upon the herd again. The bull was walking away from us, and I had no choice but to risk a "Texas heart shot". He kicked both hind feet and stumbled when I shot, got back on its feet, then staggered again. "Shoot again!" Borge yelled, and I did. The bull went down kicking, but it was dead before we reached it. My first bullet had traveled the entire length of its body before the perfectly shaped mushroomed bullet stopped just under the skin on its neck. "WOW, what a bull" I said when I realized what I had done.

I was pleased to have taken a giant eland bull, let alone a bull with 49-inch horns. What a trophy! We had chased that herd for six hours, but much to my surprise I was not very tired. We did tire out the herd, though. Borge said we had run these eland into the ground.

This was only the ninth day and we still had two and half days more to hunt. Borge, the crew and I kept on hunting and, on the eleventh day, Borge spotted a western bush duiker. When we started the stalk, it disappeared in the tall grass and ten reappeared. It obviously did not have a clue we were around. Borge again set up his shooting sticks and before long I had the fourth trophy of my safari. The last full day and one half of my safari, we saw two large herds of roan antelope, two herds of western hartebeest (one with a particularly large bull), and a big herd of giant eland with two or three bulls. That last morning, we stopped along the river for one last chance for the bushbuck. Instead of bushbuck, we spotted crocodiles in a large pool, a very good western bush duiker and another great western hartebeest bull. The safari had gone extremely well, with outstanding results to make this a very memorable trip.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: Besides taking the elephant at 8 yards, we were even closer to another bull, before it unfortunately winded us and ran off. Fellow huntress took a giant forest hog, probably as the first woman ever. Fellow hunter took a good bongo and duikers in record class.
Equipment Recommendations: Gloves for walking in the jungle. If it rains a lot it can be problematic to get washed clothes completely dry, and one should accordingly bring three sets of light clothing and sneakers which can be easily cleaned after walking in mud.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? This is the only place in the world where you can hunt forest elephant with a very reasonable chance of success. According to authorities as Tony Sanchez Arino anything over 40 pounds ivory in the forest must be considered very large. A huntress before me took a 52-pounder.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Due to the density of elephants in this area the government's allocation of elephant licenses this year was increased from 2 to 3 and is expected to be further increased to 4-5 in 2004 and the years to come. Air France lost our guns in Paris on our way from Copenhagen to Douala and they did not arrive before our charter plane departed for Lokomo next day. In order to be sure to have your own guns from day one in camp I'd next time seriously consider one nights stay in Paris which also will help American hunters to fight the jet lag.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I just wanted to give an overall observation on Borge's Ngong Cameroon bongo hunt. First as you can see in the report I rate him and his operation tops all the way through. Starting at 4:15 every morning, coffee and a bit to eat and we were loaded and off at 5:00. Even though I took a bongo on the first and third day, we maintained the same routine. What it says is that Borge is dedicated to give his hunter's 100 percent every day of his/her hunt. After I took the second bongo we hunted just as hard for the sitatunga, which all came about on the next to the last day of the hunt. Like I said in the report, there could not be any better outfitter and PH than Borge with Ngong Safaris.

After our morning hunt, coming back to the lodge between 12:00-12:30, we would have lunch and a rest. Then in the afternoon we would be off with the pygmies calling for duikers.

I have a short story about a charging blue duiker. The caller had made his nasal duiker call about 2 1/2 times and a blue duiker came over a small rise directly at me, full bore. It all happened so fast my reaction was not quick enough that I shot behind him. I even tried a second shot but to no avail. It was such a shock; we all rolled on the ground and laughed. (Almost killed by a charging blue duiker.)

We also saw many monkeys, two gorillas, one crocodile, some very colorful birds and many butterflies (a whole rainbow of colors). The size of some of the trees in the forest was overwhelming. I would rate this experience as the ultimate antelope hunt. One other thing that happened was when we got in on the sitatunga and there were seven dogs that actually had the animal down when we got to it. Borge went in and tried to move the dogs off, the sitatunga got up and then I shot. Borge grabbed it by the horns and about got his back broken as it put him on his backside. After Borge and the dogs were clear, I got a second shot to put him down for good. I would say it is probably the tightest quarters I have ever had to shoot in.

If Seeking Restitution, What is Sought? Outfitter offered a discount to come back. I told him I would not hunt this area again. He offered a discount on a bongo hunt to be arranged at SCI show with Tommy Morrison. At the SCI show we reached an agreement. I paid a deposit and Tommy was to confirm with a contract. The contract was not the discount we agreed upon. I asked and got me deposit back.


ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This Hunting Trip Report Form is for a January 2000 Lord Derby eland hunt with Ngong Safaris. I noticed in the SCI Annual Hunter's Convention "Evening Auction Guide" that Ngong Safaris has donated a Lord Derby eland hunt that they value at $21,000.

I booked my hunt with Tommy Morrison and his company, Sporting International. This was the worst hunt I have ever taken. I shared camp with Byron and Sandra Sadler, who had taken bongo with Ngong Safaris in 1999. They saw eland several times but were unable to take one. After six days of not seeing a eland or shooting anything, I shot a warthog. My PH, Geroud, upon sighting game, would have everyone get out of the safari vehicle and gather at the back for him to access the animal. After the animal ran off, he would make his determination. I could not get Geroud to change until I went to the outfitter.

After much complaining, I got to see eland for part of one day. Geroud made a bad stalk, we went left, and the eland went right. Geroud then announced that the trackers were tired, and we would return the next day. It was about 2:00 p.m. I never saw another eland.

I got a shot at a roan, and I made a bad shot. We tracked the roan the rest of that day and the next without finding it. I never got a shot at a Nigerian hartebeest because Geroud could never determine which was the male. I never saw a buffalo, elephant, bushbuck, waterbuck, lion or hippo.

I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Do not use Adventure International for booking because of incorrect information and lack of attention to details.

Two of us had hunted for Lord Derby for seven days with no luck and seeing very few animals, and we had only three days left. I requested we not spend 11:30 am to 4:00 pm in camp, but use this time to hunt. The heat of the day is not the most productive, but we were running out of time. Both of our PH's refused to provide these extra hours in the field for us.

I made it very clear to Borge prior to the departure from camp, provided written instructions prior to departure, and numerous faxes (see attached) when we returned to United States. My instructions were not followed and Ngong Safaris did not respond to my numerous faxes and provided no assistance when they realized they had made a mistake.

Delays by Air France were experience in both directions.

Please advise when shipment has been made by faxing a copy of Master Airway Bill to T.O.H. International, Attention: Lisa Jamnik 847-806-9177 (fax), or to Gary D. Parker 402-563-4189 (fax).

Please check on any special crating or bagging of baboons to separate from balance of trophies.

Should you have any questions on the above, please feel free to contact me by fax 402-563-4189 or phone 402-564-0860 (evenings at home) or 402-428-7200 (business hours at office).

I hope Borge had a successful conclusion to his eland season.

P.S. Please advise on status of trophies. I assume you have completed bongo hunts, and trophies from earlier hunts will be shipped.

Faxed again on May 27, 1998 Borge, can you please advise on status of or trophies and shipping details.

To: Gary Parker From: Borge Martin Ladefoged of Ngong Safaris Date: October 22, 1998 Re: Response to fax concerning shipping of trophies

Thank you very much for your fax, as I have received two times.

In my last fax, I mentioned to you, that I would fax you back as soon as I had some news. I was in contact with Garoua Wednesday, and since that time the telephones has not worked, but today, it worked.

A good friend of mine (Esaie) has been on Cameroon Airlines, and found out, that the boxes left Garoua two weeks ago, but is passing Ndjamena to Abidjan to New York, by Air Afrique so the boxes are on the way.

In Garoua they could not tell Esaie what number of flight they have used between Abidjan and New York, but they proposed you (your shipping agent) to contact Air Afrique in United States, and get information.

The reason the trophies are sent to Omaha is my mistake. I overlooked the destination Chicago, but I think it would be very easy to get them shipped further to you as soon as they are in the United States. It would not be a problem in Europe. I excuse that mistake.

I hope this information can help you and will not give you further problems.

To: Borge Ladefoged of Ngong Safaris From: Gary Parker Date: October 26, 1998 Re: Shipment of trophies

I am in receipt of your fax dated October 22, 1998, which provided some additional details, but still does not solve the problem or respond to my earlier and numerous requests.

As originally communicated to you at the conclusion of the hunt and in numerous faxes, the shipment should have been to Chicago, Illinois. Contrary to statements in your fax, "...I think it would be very easy to get them (to) ship further to you as soon as they are in USA," is not accurate. Only the original shipper (Ngong Safaris) can change the final destination.

Since all arrangements have been made for clearance in Chicago, my instructions were not followed, and you are the only one who can change final destination of shipment. I am again asking you to make contact on your end to change final destination from New York to Chicago, Illinois (reference earlier faxes for specifics).

I sincerely hope you can respond favorably to avoid continued delays and expense.

To: The Hunting Report From: Ngong Safaris Date: January 1, 1999 Re: Gary Parker's complaint

I have mailed you recommended all conversation I have had with Gary Parker.

First of all is his report to you not true. He did not mention to me, that he was unhappy with the hunt, but he was sorry that he did not get a giant eland. Eland hunt is not a guaranteed hunt, and they can be very difficult to hunt, you know that for sure, so I think it is very strange to complain something 10 months after the hunt is over. In Europe you have to do it immediately, and signed by PH and the hunter.

Gary Parker arrived January 28, 1998 and left February 2, 1998 and got 11 days hunt. That's what he paid for. Of on or another reason they thought they could stay until February 11, 1998, (without my opinion) where the next clients came in, that was not possible, but he was unhappy with that.

He say he did not see much game. That is not true. And that he did not walk, that is not true. We tracked eland three times, but without luck, the bulls where not in these groups, and another time we had a long walk to try to find them. On that walk, Gary Parker wounded a big warthog that we never found.

When you hunt eland, you are so concentrated as we did, you do not have much time left to try to take other animals.

Normally we do have a rest from lunchtime to 16.00 in the afternoon, and that is normal. Nobody is able to hunt day after day from early morning to late evening, but we do not have a fixed time where we had to be back in the camp.

I am the only PH in Cameroon who has sent trophies home this year. The reason is that the new minister changed the way to get signed the zites.

He wanted to sign them in Yaounde instead of in Garoua. I mailed all documents to the Danish General Consul of Denmark, and he got signed all the zites for me, so I was able to ship out the trophies.

I did that with Parker and Madsons in September, but made a mistake. Instead of sending them to Chicago, I shipped them to Omaha. I excused that mistake in the conversation papers. Then I tried to change the destination, but Camair refused that, because the boxes were in that moment in Ndjamena. (Chad)

The boxes returned to Douala, and than Camair accepted to change the destination, and did it, but the boxes were still there for two weeks ago. The reason is that Cameroon Airlines had thrown away the original LTA.

In the meantime I was in Cameroon in December. I send my man down to Douala to arrange the problems, that's how we found out, Camair have thrown away the original LTA.

My man in Garoua is a good friend of the Director of Camair, and he has promised to take care of that case.

I have really done a lot to arrange that problem, so I am sad, that Gary Parker do not want to understand how much I have done. I made a mistake with the first LTA b got it arranged. It is not my mistake Camair have thrown away the papers, and not shipped the boxes.

I have hunted many of the famous hunters from the United States and Europe and nobody has ever complained anything about my outfit, or the way I handle the things.

I hope my explanation is satisfying.
