African hunting

Anyone here have recommendations for companies that do hunting trips in Africa? A friend and I are in the planning stages and looking for recommendations.

The problem with hunting in Africa is that its just like hunting in Yellowstone. Sure its on private land, but its the same animals, and what do they know about private or public land. All of the private hunting grounds were bordering Kruger or one of the other parks when I was there.

We teach them to be accustomed to us being around 2 miles away from them being "wild and dangerous" animals where we kill them.

I am not against hunting, I just don't think that it is what it used to be.

There is great saying, "The Darkest thing about Africa is the ignorance of it."

This thread just goes to prove it. I've been hunting in South Africa and remain good friends with my Professional Hunter (Outfitter/guide in our words). I'd be happy to answer your questions.

Its been 20 years since I've hunted over there, but I sure did enjoy it. You're going to have a great time. Are you going for plains game? Anything you're particularly interested in hunting? I have friends that still hunt there every year, I'll see if they have any reccomendations. Things may have changed since I was there last, but at the time we hunted on vast concessions (like a million acres-vast) that rarely saw people. I guess all types of experience can be had over there. I think there is still a "wild" Africa that can be experienced, though. I envy you, best of luck!

When I looked into it the price was prohibitively expensive.

YMMV

Only dangerous game hunts are expensive, plains game hunts are less than going on an Alaskan Moose hunt and you will hunt 6 or 7 species.

8-9k. Go for at least 10 days, it's a long flight and adding days is a lot cheaper than going back.

Hey Kevin. Did that include your airfare?

There is a joke in there somewhere... I like you too much to take the shot. See you in Uwharrie in April.
