I just joined the forum, and as a South African PH, I find a lot of the comments very interesting and, of course, usefull(learning).
Why is it that most of the internet forums complain about the cost of plainsgame hunting? We are booked to the brim each year with American clients, and trust me, not all of them are rich men.
I still think it is very affordable to hunt in South Africa, and we have been trying to fascilitate our clients with very good prices. Yes, Namibia is cheaper in many aspects, but I compared some of their prices with our own, and there is virtually no difference when it comes to trophy fees.
A lot of my American friends/clients say that the reason why they choose South Africa above Namibia, is because of the distance involved in travelling from the Airport to the hunting farm/area, as well as the conditions in which those journeys are made.
Any replies and input from experienced Safari hunters to the guys dreaming about a trip, will be appreciated!
