Safari Trips

Let us Assist You in Planning Your Safari

African Hunting

We have a passion for hunting and travel. For over three decades we have been traveling to and hunting in Southern Africa. We often accompany clients we have booked with the various outfitters, overseeing the skinning and trophy care and to consolidate and expedite shipment of the trophies to Elephant Head Taxidermy or to the taxidermist of your choice.In some cases, we speak as client advocates during the trip to see to it that your expectations are fulfilled.

Our experiences, both good and bad, can benefit you as you chose an Outfitter and plan that trip of a lifetime. We have dealt with a number of Hunting Outfitters and Professional Guides in the countries of Southern Africa - Republic of South Africa, Zambia, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana, and can offer first hand advice on these subjects:

  • where to hunt
  • the nature of hunting in these countries variations and choices in accommodations
  • climate
  • packing and health information recommendations for travel arrangements
  • travel with firearms resources for obtaining import permits for special trophies to be hunted (CITES) and gun permits how the dipping, packing and shipping process takes place
  • costs to expect (the fine print) the import process
  • the broker and customs process
  • what to be prepared for

Mabulu Pro Safaris

For over a decade we have been acting as agents and coordinating hunts with Mabula Pro Safaris, owned by Christo and Stella Gomes, of South Africa. Their luxury lodge is located in the Limpopo Province. We have found that Christo and Stella and their staff truly endeavor to provide the clients we book with a great experience. They are highly organized, pay attention to detail, and we have found that they will try their hardest to meet client expectations at all times. They provide wonderful accommodations on their property and a fine hunting experience for the best quality trophies on carefully selected concessions and their own private reserve. Contact us and we can help coordinate your hunt and travel plans with Mabula Pro Safaris.

Thaba Mmoyo Safaris

We also can arrange bookings with Thaba Mmoyo Safaris. This operation is owned by Fanie Steyn and it is a family-owned and operated business situated in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.

Following a longstanding tradition of hunting which began with his great-grandfather back in 1916, Fanie started operations in 1981. Fanie, his highly skilled and experienced son-in-law Willie Jansen Van Rensburg, and Erhard Muller are all excellent hosts and guides, all licensed for the Big Five hunts as well. Ellizy Van Rensburg is Fanie's oldest daughter and she has the chore of managing the guides, the lodge and the office.

Hunts take place either at the main camp located near Waterpoort where much of the plains game is harvested, or in the Phalaborwa area of Limpopo on concessions bordering the Kruger Park where most of the cape buffalo and elephant hunts are conducted. Their main camp is situated in perfect leopard country and there is a high success rate when permits are available. Fanie believes strongly in the walk and stalk method of hunting so he is a popular choice for those hunters physically willing and able to work for their trophies.
