Swiss hunters Hani and his son Marc have just been on their yearly visit to Grand Safari, Hani took that beautiful old Nyala bull the first day.
Marc will take the plung a few days later with a massive Blue Wildebeest bull. We were on a very big springbok ram for Hani when we bumped into a herd of Blue Wildebeest bulls, Marc dropped a huge bull, that was his first animal ever, well done!!!!
It is always a real privilege to be part of a father & son hunt not to be forgotten, especially guiding someone’s first steps into african hunting, thank you guys! Read the rest of this entry »
Lost my best hunting buddy last Friday, got hit by a car in a very remote place called Hamburg on our South African coast. My best friends lost their dog Roxy too in the process. Painful, unfair, sad, very sad right now…
For those of you that knew this little Foxy cross Jack Russell called Domino, you would know how much space she was taking in my life for the last 11 years.
Good bye girls…
Bryan Donovan is a keen Australian hunter and we have just completed a Grand Safari together that took us from the Kalahari to the Karoo region in South Africa.
Bryan is a well experienced hunter that has been hunting in Africa for over 20 years. He tried his luck on lions in West and East Africa before, came very close, but could not get one yet. We will try to get him one in Tanzania next year, but until then, he wanted to experience tracking lions on foot in the Kalahari where he could harvest both a big maned lion and a big female in a very short period of time.
I meet Bryan and his mate John in Johannesburg Airport where we charter a small aircraft to shorten the 8 hours drive to a 2 hours flight to get to the Kalahari. We land in the middle of a vast hunting area on the Botswana border.
We decide to first track the big female reserved for Bryan. The bushman tracker does an excellent job tracking her in the sand between broken bushes for about 3 hours non stop. We had a glance of that big cat once or twice, but could not get a shot. Read the rest of this entry »
Spring Day!! And possibly last day for your summer holidays on the northern hemisphere.
You’ve read our latest news from Cameroon. Herewith what happens in South Africa during the last very busy weeks: some very nice East Cape Kudu, Bushbuck, Blesbok and much much more…
For those of you who can read French, have a look at Hervé, Marie and Pierre-Antoine blog on http://www.grand-gibier.
Fred Dumont from Grand Safari Cameroon is now back in France after a successful but difficult season on our Rain Forest concession # 36.
Not much rain in June made it tough to hunt Bongo, however, Fred still got 7 out of 7 this year, together with some fine specimens of forest Sitatunga.
Season has officially started on the 1st of July, and we are waiting for our first group of hunters arriving in a few days time.
Camp is ready, stunning again this year, remember that we are not allowed to have permanent structures in the Selous National Park where our concessions are, so we start from scratch each year.
We still have limited discounted safaris on offer for THIS year, first come first serve…don’t miss out! This is truly an opportunity to experience optimum big game hunting…
