Solid choice from what my research was able to turn up.  Should be a great hunt, do you have the dates picked out yet?

Contact KEN CHAPLIN...509.485.2077 or kgcfisher@amerion.com.......he's a booking agent and Ihave used him on several occasssions, so have my clients.............both in South Africa and in Namibia..........in fact we are going, on a ten day hunt  to the Limpopo area  of SA in March of 18 for the same type of hunt you are looking for at a price less than $6K.   Give him a call I have clients that have gone with him and me and my friends and on return hunts to different areas.

OLYMPIC TAXIDERMY STUDIO
NORTH BEND, WA
this is who I went with as well, he recommended Custom travel who gave very good instructions on getting guns through quickly & the gal who worked there saved me a bundle by having me wait a few weeks for the price of airfare to drop which she knew it would. I took my family & had a great time & my 11 year-old girl & 8 year-old boy got to hunt as well.
I thought I would save money by having a taxidermist in South Africa and they mixed up my kudu, gemsbok and springbok with someone else's.  So keep that in mind.

I have heard of that happening on a fairly regular basis. I know there is a few guys on here that have not got the animals they harvested back, rather someone else's.
I went with Black Bear taxidermy in SA who ironically studied taxidermy in Thompson Falls MT. anyway he switched my gorgeous Kudu cape for one that looks like it was drug a ways & my Impala which was beautiful for one that was obviously in more than a few fights. thousands of miles away & no real recourse. but I figured too many mounts I see done here don't look right & he sees them in the bush all the time, he knows what they look like. your decision, but I would take thousands of pictures, dip pack & ship capes & provide pictures to taxi.

I will have all my taxidermy done over here for sure as I have guys I trust here. I will be using a travel agency that was recommended and has a very good reputation with hunters traveling to Africa. I am set on Iliwa safaris at this time but thanks for the input.

Looking forward to hearing how this goes. Wouldn’t mind taking the whole family over for hunting and photos.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
