I have taken 4 hunting trips to South Africa with Cedar Key Outfitters, For the cost to book one hunt for one animal in North America, I was able to shoot 6 animals in one hunt at this beautiful ranch. My largest trophy was an enormous Kudu, measuring in at 58Ē; it qualified for Rowland Ward and SCI record books. Now Iím looking for a 60Ē or better Kudu, I had no idea how large they get? When not hunting, we would go on site seeing & photo safaris at the beautiful Thwane Game Lodge where we stayed most of the time and another day shopping for super deals in the markets, for gifts to take home. While staying at Thwane we enjoyed exotic meals of Impala and Wildebeest wonderfully prepared complimented by the finest in wines. While out hunting, I never imagined having wildebeest, kudu, eland, warthog, steenbok or impala prepared as if we were at a five star restaurant. On the cool evenings we eat while under the stars near an acacia tree on a large lazy Susan dinner table each night. After dinner and while having a cordial of Amarula, we would listen to an orchestra of lonely jackals and other nocturnal friends of the African night. Each day was carefully planned and I could have taken an animal every day, one, two and sometimes three animals, it just doesnít get any better than that! While I am typing this, I keep staring at a photo of my record book kudu with SCI and Roland Ward I also received a free CD of my bow hunt, that Jenny & Graham our host at Thwane made for me and canít wait for my next hunt in South Africa. The only trouble one may find in South Africa is getting bitten by that African bug that causes you to keep coming back. Hunting at Thwane Game Lodge is money well spent for the first timer or for the hunter that wants to hunt as little or as much as he wants, they truly redefine service to the outdoor adventurer.Lance set up another hunt of a lifetme.
