Umdende Hunting Safaris Testimonial from Mr Che Park

Clayton(Owner and Outfitter) and Mr Che Park with his Red Haartebeest
Dear Clayton
It was my second South African venture and first combined wing shooting and plains game hunting.
Having been a few trips to south America for wing shooting in the past, African bird shooting was so different in that I was able to shoot such variety of exotic birds that I had dreamed of.
 Mr Che Park with his Spurwing goose and his Egyptian Goose
Your partner Garth and all supporting staff were outstanding. As a shotgunner I highly recommend this lifetime experience.
Mr Che Park with his Stallion Zebra
Your accommodation and food were excellent as well as wonderful daily service. My few day's plains game including night time hunting was unforgettable memories. Say many thanks to your wife Debbie who planned our comfortable stay throughout.
Wishing you many year's success.
Che S. Park,M.D.

Umdende Hunting Safaris Testimonials

Testimonial  from  Sean Scott
Waterfowl shoot (Sean, 2nd from right)
 Hi Clayton and team , Just a few words to thank you so much for the fantastic bird shooting we just had with you . My clients and I were more than happy with the whole package - the outstanding shooting ,the great lodging at Strathcona, excellent organisation and maybe above all the fantastic company and new friends we all made ! 

Bringing very experienced travelling bird hunters who own a large duck shooting marsh, to a location on the other side of the world and to have them leave as happy and impressed as they were is a great credit to you - thanks very much . 

As the first morning dawned and we laid amongst the decoys with wave after wave ( closer to a tsunami actually ! ) of Egyptian and Spurwing geese coming to the decoys , everyone rapidly realised what was going to follow in the next few days!Wing shooting paradise ! 

Clayton - as we commented to have Guns who say "hey you know what lets stop we have shot enough ! " , is very rare and good to see - but also shows just how much game and excellent shooting is available in your beautiful areas .The fact that we never travelled more than 25 minutes from the lodging (which was excellent ) was a huge bonus . 

Having been lucky enough to have travelled too a lot of hunting and shooting destinations this is not always the case - BUT a huge bonus ! The pigeon shooting was excellent and being a pigeon shooting addict , my personal " ton plus " on the first afternoon was great .Both of the duck flights were truly memorable again plenty of birds coming to the decoys and Clayton's excellent calling . 
Pigeon Shoot

The final mornings driven guinea and francolin shooting driven by your troop of Zulu warriors , was really fun . Everyone shot guineas which on the wind we had showed most of the team how to hit the big blue of an African sky on more than one occasion ! 
Zulu Dancing
As Fred said of the francolin : " Hell I have never seen a bird fly that fast not even a driven grouse , it was like a space ship flashing by ! 
Guinea Fowl Shoot
I will certainly be aiming to bring more groups to Clayton in the future , you exceeded everyone's expectations and run a great operation - well done guys ! 

Big thank you and travel safe .
