Nothing even close to this South Africa duck hunting adventure!
I hope this email finds you well. Beverly and I would like to thank you for the incredible memory we now have of our waterfowl hunting trip in South Africa.
My South Africa wingshooting trip started by arriving at the airport with someone waiting for me to assist in getting me to the Africa Sky. It was very intimidating to be in a foreign country’s airport, but the anxiety disappeared quickly when I met our VIP host, Gilbert. After spending that night at Africa Sky overcoming my jet leg, Prudence greeted me in the courtyard letting me know they were ready to prepare lunch for me. I reviewed my itinerary to find out this was not part of my trip but was offered out of kindness. After my short stay at Africa Sky, our hunting trip was in full motion.
Everyday of the South Africa bird hunt was a new event. I spent the first few days just getting comfortable with the other hunters and Ramsey. While my main focus was harvesting as many species as possible, it was very interesting hearing the other hunters talk about their reasons for being on the hunt. We had a couple people focused on collecting species, the other people were excited about the volume of the hunt. I personally don’t think it is possible to strictly collect the various species and get the full African experience. Now that the trip has become one of my memories, I was really lucky Ramsey suggested the full 12-day version f this South Africa duck hunting adventure. I would have never experienced the enjoyment of feeding an African family with our harvest if had I purchased a shorter trip. I would not have seen the volume of ducks on our evening hunt had I only focused on collecting species. My most educational moments were traveling with Clayton into the African villages looking for our trophy ducks. I spent 3 days meeting people to kill 4 ducks. It was the best 3 days I could have ever experienced. I actually saw people retrieving their drinking water from a river. It’s unbelievable the difference of my world compared to their world.

The opportunity to meet an African Chief, paying tips to get access to areas to hunt, paying off a policeman to prevent a speeding ticket, watching African women making mattresses out of local cane, seeing little kids cheering for us when we shot ducks, riding in boats made with branches. Are you kidding me? All these experiences in a short 12-day South Africa bird hunting adventure! This is a tribute to the time that y’all invested to create a hunting package that includes much more than a hunting trip. No one else out there is offering anything even close to this for a South Africa duck hunting adventure. After all these experiences, I returned to the B&B to meet my wife and spend 7 days experiencing the Safari and touring other areas of Africa.
We can wait for our next trip. We want to go to Australia for va
cation, then onto New Zealand for collecting more waterfowl species. Beverly and I are hoping you can help us figure out the best dates to take this trip so we can start planning now.
I sincerely appreciate everything.
