“This was a wonderful experience, especially for my son being with me to participate in the thrill of free range hunting in Africa. The number and quality of animal here is like nothing I have ever seen before. Overall Experience: 10. As we were your Guinea Pigs for the Erindi Game Reserve, I thought it was a nice experience that many people would appreciate. It allowed us to see animals we never had an opportunity to see on the farm, like the lions, ostriches, hippos, and rhino. I also thought the food was particularly amazing. Overall, there really isn’t much to improve on, and I thought the whole operation was exceptionally well run.”

“My hunt with Gideon Cloete for Leopard at Westfalen was my 6th trip to Africa. It was the best hunt I have experienced. I was able to get the Leopard every hunter dreams of. But also I learned a great deal not only about leopard hunting but hunting and tracking in general. I have never seen a PH that could out track his trackers. Gideon explained what we were doing and why. That helped me to realize that although I thought I knew a great deal about hunting I really just needed to let him do his job. It worked out very well. Along with the leopard I was able to get several other animals all very nice. The camps were as nice as any I have ever seen and I was never wanting more of anything. I will be going back to hunt with Gideon in 2017 along with my brother. I would recommend hunting with Gideon to even the most seasoned hunters. I am happy to answer any and all questions.”
Stan T., USA
