We try to only take one booking at a time, so that each hunting group has the lodge, all the staff, the hunting vehicles and the whole hunting concession to themselves, which definitely makes for a more enjoyable hunt, and also makes it easier for us to concentrate on each group individually. The two professional hunters in the family, Kelvin Milsom and father in law, Donovan Rudman have years of experience between them. A wealth of knowledge of the Malaria free Eastern Cape country side ensures the highest standard of service at all times, focusing on quality and maintaining an exciting African experience. Our accommodation consists of a lodge which is situated in a secluded valley, surrounded by natural African bushveld. It consists of 5 en suite bedrooms, a swimming pool and an outside entertainment area. The lodge has all the mod cons one needs e.g. internet, phone, fax.
The lodge was a South African farmhouse, which we have restored to offer you the luxuries needed after a busy day hunting yet we have proudly maintained an authentic African ambiance. We offer mouth watering South African cuisine, which is often prepared over open fires in the evenings, thus one gets to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature around you while sipping on a cool South African beverage. All meals are included, and pack lunches are supplied, that can be enjoyed in bush under the shade of a tree, while taking a break from stalking an animal. Snacks and beverages are supplied throughout your stay. M17278 is privileged to have a qualified registered nurse in the family who is on site, to ensure that First Aid and care is well provided. We offer daily laundry services, internet access, telephone and fax.
M17278 is a member of the following organizations PHASA, CHASA, SCI, South African Tourism and Wildlife Ranching of South Africa.
A day of hunting begins at sunrise, with a steaming cup of coffee, and a light breakfast. While you are filling your bellies for the day ahead, the staff is getting the hunting vehicles ready ensuring all that is needed for a successful hunt is there. Your professional hunter will then take you to the African bush, to begin the stalk for which ever magnificent species you are planning to hunt on that day. Once the correct location is reached, everyone grabs what is needed from the vehicle, and the walk and stalk begins.
When you see a trophy animal that the professional hunter is satisfied with, and one that you are happy to shoot, you will then get comfortable and ready to take the shot. We do carry shooting sticks if the hunter wishes to use them. Thereafter it is up to you to take the shot and drop the beast. Our professional hunters will not rush you, and they will take their time in looking for a really good quality trophy for each client. Each hunt is conducted at each individual's pace. We cater for everyone, for the first timer, showing them the ropes and guiding them all the way, we also cater for the very experienced hunter allowing the hunt to go according to the requirements of each person.
