A little late, as always! At least this time I have an excuse. The travel ban imposed on SA citizens was instated late November 2021, and that once again threw the cat amongst the pigeons. We are so used to uncertainty these days, but at least things are moving in a direction right now.
The travel ban will be lifted on New Year’s Eve, and myself and Robert will be on that first flight.
We were concerned about the Dallas Safari Club Convention, but now we will be there, meeting old and new friends.
For us in the tourism and safari industry it has been a long 18 months with a lot of disappointments, but hopefully travel will become somewhat normal in the next season. We sure are ready to offer a great variety of trips and are eager to catch up on all our lost time in the wilderness!
We all have experienced an unknown hunger for travel and safaris during this past season, and believe that 2022 will be a great year!
We certainly are very excited to be able to see all of you and offer great products and services for the upcoming seasons.
Make sure to let us know with your special requirements, as some of the great trips we have secured and offer, are very limited in numbers.
2021 started of quite shaky as the pandemic closed all travel and marketing during the usual January Convention season. As the world slowly started waking up, some hard-core travellers braved it and had fantastic hunts.
We had some excellent trophies on offer and the safari clients took enormous Sable, Nyala, Kudu, Buffalo and had excellent Leopard hunts.
We traveled to Zimbabwe and Caprivi, Namibia for Leopard, Elephant and Buffalo hunts, all being outstanding trips and friendships were set in stone around the campfire!
We have secured some excellent permits in various areas in Southern Africa, all areas we have some great experience in. Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Lion are on offer in various exciting areas, and as always, our SA big game hunts next to Kruger Park and plains game are some of the best in the industry. Please do not hesitate to contact us to secure your spot and permit on these exclusive deals.
Man, time flies!
Im getting old, kids are taking over!
Our eldest, Cara has finished her degree in chemical engineering and plan to finish her masters during the next 2 months. She will be starting her career at Megchem, a consulting engineering company at the end of February 2022.
Dries completed his first year at Bush Africa Safaris and has finished his PH license. He is excited to experience more, and we are blessed to have a son with a passion for the safari industry. He plans to visit the US later in January, and hope that he will be able to make some of the shows. Nina will complete her senior year at high school next year, after which we will have an empty nest! She plans to study at the same university as her sister in Stellenbosch, pursuing a science degree........it will be tough not having my nr.1 PH and helper around!
