REFERENCES & TESTIMONIALS
Ronald,

I wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude for your assistance in organizing and managing our hunt.  From day one to drop off at the airport it was nothing short of amazing. Before I begin to thank you, I want you to know that I would hunt any dangerous animal with you anywhere. The impressive behavior you displayed during my hunt was so cut above the rest that I would recommend you to any of my fellow hunters. During my buffalo hunt and  after I shot the buffalo and we all realized the buffalo was not down I noticed everyone's tense and unnerving facial expressions and realized we were in a dangerous situation going into the bush after a wounded Cape buffalo. For me this was best part as I normally enjoy stalking and not just stalking but stalking dangerous game.  Throughout the day you made one decision that will forever be imbedded in my memory. As we crossed the small creek you made the call to go back to the creek crossing I'm sure you remember that's when we recovered the buffalo spore. Hours and miles later we found the buffalo and made several shots at the buffalo where it finally rested under the tree. At this point we all thought the end was here for the buffalo. Gert you and I all approached the buffalo when it came to. To me this is where a man will discover what he is made of. I'll never forget the way that buffalo looked at me. As if I owed it a large sum of money. Three shots later we were all taking picture and displaying signs of true craftsmanship towards hunting. It wasn't until I was home that I realized the magnitude of my hunt and how close we came to a dangerous situation where the tables of fate could have turned to favor our quarry. The last 4 minutes of that buffalo hunt is where I believe every dollar I spent was earned. I want you to know that I consider you a friend for life. Any person that can go into the bush with me after a wounded buffalo and show no signs of fear is definitely cut from a finer cloth. Thank you for a great hunt, it is definitely the best hunt I have ever been on.

Good Morning Everyone at Global Safaris!  

I just wanted to take a few minutes and thank each of you for such a Great trip. This was our first Safari and we really did not know what to expect once we got to South Africa. There are always thoughts going through your mind as you get off of a plane in South Africa like I sure hope they remembered we were flying in today!!! And I sure hope they have a sense of humor!!! Tyrone was our PH and he picked us up from the airport. Poor Tyrone…… I’m sure about an hour into the 3 hour drive he wanted to tape my mouth shut for asking so many questions! But he was very professional and even though many of my questions were “dumb” he answered them with a smile! You and your staff are very friendly and very professional and it felt more like a family then a business, many resorts and vacation get a ways try to make you feel this way but you truly did an Amazing job!!!

We purchased this safari that you donated at a Mule Deer banquette in New Mexico, and I would have never guessed how much this would change our lives forever!! I wanted to thank you for your donation to the Mule Deer Foundation, and for all of your donations you have given to help animal conservation around the world. I have been asked many times what was my Favorite part of our trip. People just do not understand unless they have been there but there was no bad parts at all!!!! Going to South Africa was more than a hunting trip, I have been on many of those in the States. This was more of an Experience than anything else. Seeing the sight first hand of what this beautiful world of ours has to offer! I Absolutely LOVE Hunting so of course that was Awesome, but here in the US and in New Mexico we have quite a few animals to hunt but some live in one corner of the state or in high country, or whatever the case may be but you will only see a couple each day you go out. And yes SA is the same, some animals live in different areas but, every day we seen at the very least 10 different species of animals, most days we seen many more then that!!!! We have all seen animals in a zoo so I thought seeing a giraffe would just be hey there’s a giraffe no big deal. NOPE, when you are driving looking for animals and your wife says and I quote. ”Hey that tree just moved……….. Giraffe, Giraffe, Holy Cow there is a GIRAFFE!!!!!!!!!” Ya Trust me it’s NOTHING like a zoo!!!!

Tyrone was our PH and between him and Mosses, our tracker and skinner, they made an Amazing team! From showing us the best animals to trying to teach us how to speak Afrikaans we could not have asked for a better team! We WILL be back to South Africa and we WILL be hunting with you again! I could not have planned a better trip with a better group of people and I can’t wait to do it all over again!

For Everything you did for us and for all the laughs we shared Baie Dankie!!!

See You Soon Brandon and Tonnie Blevins

I took my then 11 year old son and my wife on the Safari. We had a Blast! They unexpectedly had a .243 in camp that was accommodating to a petite sized young man and a PH that was very patient and helped my son take an impala and blesbok. He had only just gotten his first deer the winter before our trip, apparently our shooting sessions paid off in spades. About half way through our stay some more kids his age showed up and I lost my little buddy to younger camaraderie.

My wife loved having multiple hunters in camp, I call her the social butterfly, and bonded with my PH's wife (who was also in camp for several days) as well as the other hunters and spouses. She went hunting with us guys several days but also went shopping and had a spa treatment while we were there. She also loved our "tent" which was nicer than many motels I have stayed at for US hunts.

I was able to get some nice trophies and as it was my second safari my list was not quite the standard (Kudu/Gemsbok) plains game. I am still amazed at how something as big as an Eland can elude hunters so well. I also took my shotgun and thoroughly enjoyed my bird shooting and took sand grouse, francolin, guinea fowl, and some dove.

Food was great, I had a hot shower every day and I even went swimming on my birthday even though the pool was a bit chilly. It is a well run outfit and I would recommend without reservation.
