Daryl recently hunted with Andrew, being his first time in Africa this is what he has to say;
When I was looking for A PH to hunt with on my first African safari, I contacted several outfitters. Michael recommended Andrew to me, so I sent him an email also. Andrew replied promptly and provided options that would suit my intentions. He was responsive and helpful, so I decided to hunt with him. Besides, recommendations from those you trust are hard to beat.
In July 2011 I hunted with Andrew in Zimbabwe for Cape buffalo and hippo, and in South Africa for kudu, warthog, zebra and giraffe. Andrew certainly knows his stuff. He is an accomplished tracker, excellent at spotting game and works hard to ensure selection of the right animal before you take the shot.
I successfully took each of the game species on my list and Andrew was genuinely pleased for me each time I bagged a trophy. As a bonus, he also took really good trophy photos.
I often asked Andrew about other hunts he’d guided on and really enjoyed listening to anecdotes from his numerous hunts over the years. Many were humorous, some were eye-wideners, but all were very interesting. His stories also reflected his depth of experience and his intimate knowledge of the various game species.
Andrew is very easy to get along with and also very accommodating. I elected to drive, rather than fly, back to South Africa with him after my Zimbabwe hunt so that I could see more of Africa at ground level. Despite the long distance,
Andrew was happy to make some detours so that I could see some sites of interest and cultural significance. At the end of my South African hunt, I had some days left, so we did some interesting things to round out my time. I’ve always been fascinated by rhino, so Andrew drove me to a place where I could sneak up on some white rhino with my camera. Fantastic.
Whether you’re a first time African hunter like myself, or an avid Africa hunter like Michael, you’ll find hunting with Andrew a pleasure. Andrew is a PH who will work hard to ensure you have an enjoyable and successful safari.
