What our clients say...

A very scenic hunting area, which offers many different game species. The Professional Hunters (PH) know the area very well and the used spot and stalk technic most often resulted in taking the sought after animal. The accomodation is simple but full of charme. The food was exceptional.
I would definately hunt again with Owen and Noboya Safaris.
