Why? The hunting is great and very comfortable for my 70 year old dad to go too. We flew into Jburg and then on to Phalaborwa where we drove only about 40minutes to get to the concession area. I now have many stories to tell my son, which at some point hopefully will hunt his own elephant.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This place is great. This is my fourth hunt into the Dark Continent and I can't wait to go back. I saw a big buffalo that I hope will still be around, but definitely hunting my elephant was amazing. It was a magnificent animal. My dad being in his 70s and having hunted over 120 species had a great time. I will definitely rejoice bringing back all those memories of hunting with my "madalla." I hope he has enough energy to do it again. The facilities are really nice and the food and service are amazing. I would go back every year if I could. I look forward to going again and hunting that big buffalo.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I recently hunted with Thaba Mmoyo back in September 2009 and also had a fantastic hunt! However, they have really upgraded their hunting lodge. It was nice before, but it's really something now! Zeriah really put a lot of time and effort into the new design. I highly encourage all to plan a trip and go see what they have done to the place. Like always, when you arrive, they treat you like family and really go out of their way to make sure you are having a great hunt. I can't wait until my next hunt, as there are still so many animals I plan on taking. After being burned a few times on hunts, I am just glad my family and I found honest hard working people that really take care of my family and I when we are in Africa! I have no worries.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I had been wanting to take a Cape buffalo for many years now. The first hunt I ever booked was with Usangu Safaris. I was burned in this deal as well as many other hunters on this site. Usangu took our money and never provided us with a hunt. Robbie Kruger was another outfitter who was dishonest. Being a retired law enforcement officer, I never saw their scams coming until it was too late. After all those rotten eggs, we were lucky to find Fanie and Zeriah of Thaba Mmoyo Safaris. They are super honest and hard working and they treat you like family. From now on we will hunt only with them. I know there are many other trusted, honest outfitters out there, but we have found a home away from home with Thaba Safaris.

The biggest reason I guess I keep returning is Fanie Steyn is the most enjoyable person you can imagine to hunt with. No one could possibly go home disappointed in this hunt.

An exceptional operation, overall, with truly fine people.
