As stated by a long-time revisiting guest, “Africa duck hunting is must-do for any serious shotgunner. For the money, the volume may be a little lower (than Argentina hunts), but waterfowl hunting in Africa is a high-quality experience, that presents more diverse and challenging shooting, and best of all – you’re in AFRICA!”
Wanted to let you know we had a great time hunting waterfowl in South Africa. All of you are very professional and truly great people. Could not have asked for a better South Africa duck hunting combo experience. The hunting was phenomenal and your company was even better. I plan on hunting again with you guys in the future. We are having a great time plains game hunting but I just wanted to reach out to you and let all you know we had a spectacular time. Best wishes for continued success. Cheers.
South Africa duck hunting…easily described as a “trip of a lifetime” but I don’t think that it was our only visit!
A couple of years ago, my wife took me on a waterfowling trip to Alaska for my 50th birthday, so I was under considerable pressure when hers came around. South Africa duck hunting could not have been a better choice. We spent an enchanted week with gracious hosts at their beautiful lodge. South Africa is a beautiful and interesting country with an abundance of wildlife and a spellbinding history. And the wingshooting? I must say that I have never seen a greater variety of opportunities anywhere. A typical day might involve an early hunt for Egyptian and spurwing geese, a mid-morning hunt for driven guineafowl and francolin, a break for lunch and an afternoon shoot for hot-gun doves or pigeons. I can easily describe this experience as a “trip of a lifetime” but I don’t think that it was our first and only visit!
