Newsletter for 2018 hunting season

The summer heat is on us in all its might! The hunting season again went by in the blink of an eye, and the hunting fares in Europe is approaching fast – and time for our PH and Outfitters annual “migration” to the northern Hemisphere.

Our first hunt of the year was in March with our friends from the Netherlands. They collected a beautiful Nyala and a Kudu bull as well as a Warthog.

During April we had 4 clients in and around Mkhunyane Reserve in eastern Mpumalanga from Poland, headed by the very able Maciej Pyplacz and Max von Amelsfoort. The clients were all experienced hunters and now mostly wished to hunt the more specialized and difficult to obtain smaller antelope trophies.

Newsletter for 2017 hunting season

I just returned from a successful Capercaillie hunt in northern Finland, on invitation from my friend and colleague Jorma. As I was there in the Arctic Circle, some of the first snow of the winter fell. I realized with a shock that another year is gone and that it is almost time for me and Charl to go to the hunting fairs in Germany and Austria.

The past hunting season was fully packed during the first part of the year, but we had some unfortunate cancellations in the second half due to personal circumstances of some hunters, that will now visit us in 2018. On the political front it is not currently going as well as we hoped and there was some negative media coverage in Europe, which may put some hunters off from visiting our lovely country.
