So God made a Hunter by Tony Vandemore

And on the ninth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said

"Thumbs Up" By Gudfinnur and Jane

Evening thunderstorm

Back in 2012 I had the pleasure of doing my first South African hunting trip with the Umdende team, which had been recommended to me by a good friend of mine who had hunted with them previously. 

Stalking the Buffalo

So when my wife gave me the “thumbs up” on hunting my first of the big five (buffalo), there was no question and I contacted Umdende to help me make the trip become reality. As it was with the previous trip in 2012, the 2014 quest for buffalo with Umdende was an unforgettable experience.

The professionalism, commitment, consistency, level of hunting ethics and integrity as well as the companionship of the Umdende team (Clayton and Garth out in the field with Debbie and Tenneil back in the office) made this trip the great success that it was.

My wife, who is not a hunter, joined us on most of the stalks and loved every minute of the trip, both during the stalks and back at the lodge, hanging out with the team around the bar/braai. There is no question that for my next hunting trip to South Africa, they will play a big part there as well. We truly can’t recommend them enough!
