In researching hunting options for my dad and I to hunt in South Africa for our first African Safari, I looked at several companies. It was a lengthy process, but a few thing set Victor and Karoo Wild Safaris apart. First, I noticed how many repeat customers they had. Also, they catered to small groups, so they were able to personalize the experience, not pushing to lots of clients to get the most animals possible. They also offered a true fair chase hunting experience. After speaking to former clients I decided this was the place for us.
Upon or arrival, we found that Victor, Lindsay and their staff were very welcoming and the accommodations exceeded our expectations! We truly wanted to experience South Africa, and my wife had a list of authentic foods that she hoped to try during our visit. To her excitement, every single food on her list was covered in the fabulous meals we were served throughout our stay. We also enjoyed learning about the culture in South Africa. Victor was able to answer our questions and it was so interesting learning about the economics and history of the area.
We were able to hunt on several different large properties that offered a variety of game. It was very apparent that our professional hunter, Nibbs, and tracker, Mitchell, were exceptional in ensuring that we had every opportunity to obtain the animals we desired. I truly felt that Nibbs had my best interests in mind in trying to get the best trophy animals possible. He had strict expectations of quality and was very selective to ensure my display of animals will look fantastic in my home! In addition, Nibbs and Mitchell went out of their way to help my 70 year old father, with limited mobility, have the hunt of a lifetime.
I plan on returning to hunt with Karoo Wild Safaris and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for an amazing experience hunting in South Africa.
