I has been a privilege to be your first client. I am so pleased to have got my Impala, hopefully next time I will get a nice ram.
The farm is truly wonderful with some stunning scenery. The food and hospitality is of the highest calibre. All in all the experience has been “baie lekker”.
Baie Baie dankie Jaco and Thea for an unforgettable experience

I know I will I be back to visit you again in the future.
Thank you for all you have done for us.

Thank you for a truly wonderful introduction to Africa and for your kindness and hospitality. I can’t believe our week together has gone so fast however it created many wonderful memories including:
- Perfect sunrises and sunsets
- Beautiful scenery
- My first African visit with associated secret “business”
- My lesson in how to create an unexplained hole in the fence wilst clearin a firearm
I look forward to our next trip Thanks again.

A fantastic meeting. We enjoy only a couple of hours but that are hours we’ll ever remind because we share friendship, joy, fun, excellent cooking and quite a few drink. Now I am please to die, such moments are so rare and so precious that I am afraid not encounter so fine time later - Always for ever in my memory - Heart needs no language - Thanks and see you again, and as soon as possible
JB de Runz, Strasbourg, France. July 2007.
Well my friend, ten days has passed by again in the blink of an eye. And what a week of the hardest to hunt summer veldt.
Thanks to the Python, Leopard, Impala, Warthog, Jackal, Blesbuck, Gemsbuck, and dear Mr Kudu for making it unforgettable. But most of all thanks to you my friend, for without you none of this week would have come to pass. Well “Bramble” and his 9.3 have to go home now. We will be back.
Mark Neal, London, England. 05 February 2008.
Sadly Mark passed away in August 2011 after a battle with cancer. He will be remembered as a dear friend and mate. His love and passion and knowledge or rifles and his love for African hunting was an inspiration for all that knew him. RIP my friend.
This one of the most important hunts of my life!! The first time my son João hunted in Africa.
A fantastic time and with a fantastic host, professional, teacher and (IMHO) a friend. Thankyou Jaco for the patience and care you demonstrated towards my son on his debut in African soil.
We both will be coming back….for more!!

What a pleasure to share my love of Africa with my wife + daughter with such good friends. It was the experience of a lifetime, just like I knew it would be. We can’t wait to return and continue our love affair with this wonderful place.

Chantry Cheshire (Cary’s daughter), Saratoga, Wyoming, USA. 28 June 2013
Thanks for the experience in Africa. We saw so many animals and learned so much. We have met such wonderful people, it’s been a pleasure to spend our vacation with you all. Even more of a memory Steph made her first kill with her bow. Thanks again for the memories.
Tony Taylor & Stephanie Wilson, Rawlins, Wyoming, USA. 27 May 2014
Second time in Africa, first with my entire family. Enjoy every minute of it even the missed shot.
I wish I could do a bit more target shooting.
We are going back full of happy memories and some very good video footage.
Coming back someday.

FANTASTI!!! GREAT HUNTING, FOOD, ACCOMODATION & GREAT CRAIC EVERY NIGHT.
Paul Moore, Lancashire, England. 21 June 2014.
We enjoyed very much hunting with you. I walked and stalked with you many hours. You gave me chances on warthog but unfortunately I was to slow. It looked at me at 100 meters, stepped away 5 meters, looked at me again and run away. The shot was behind it. You tooke for me the 3-poot all that days, We did exercises with it and I missed the big pig from that 3-poot. Then the baboon- it came to us until 30 metres. Beautiful. It talked angry with us and we decided not too shoot it.
I had great days with you, sitting on beautiful places/spots.
This is my first experience with Africa and it is overwhelming. I hope to come back.
So Jacu thank you very much for your work, experience and enthusiasm.
