Armando was back with his wife Roberta for their fifth African hunting safari. Previously Armando had made two hunting trips to Namibia, one hunting trip to the Limpopo region and another hunting trip to the Eastern Cape. Armando was looking for a high quality Lechwe, Nyala, Waterbuck and Bushbuck trophies in a free-range environment.
As usual I was on hand to meet Armando and Roberta at the Port Elizabeth airport after their long trip from Italy to South Africa. We made the around two-hour trip back to Olivefountain lodge where Armando and Roberta settled in to their accommodation.
Rob Bowker collected us from the Port Elizabeth airport for Andre’s first African hunting safari in Africa. I was returning for my second African hunting Safari in South Africa, with Nick Bowker Hunting. I had an excellent previous experience with Nick and was keen to bring my good friend Andre for some free-range hunting in the Eastern Cape - South Africa. Nick is an African hunting safari Outfitter with more than 25 years of professional hunting experience. Both Andre and I were hunting Nicks seven animal package consisting of a Kudu, Black Wildebeest, Spring buck, Impala, Warthog White Blesbok and Mountain Reedbuck.
It has been seven years since our last African hunting trip to the Eastern Cape with Nick Bowker Hunting. While there are a few minor changes (some upgrades to the bar/dinner area), most things were very similar. Most importantly, the experience and animals once again greatly exceeded our expectations. Being this was my hunting buddy and my second time over, we wanted to go after some different animals to get a little different African hunting experience, but we also wanted to go after of few of the same game as our first round given how impressive these animals are and how much we enjoyed going after them previously. In 2012, both of us took a Kudu, Mountain Reedbuck, Springbuck, Impala, Warthog and Blesbuck. Nick has very appealing hunting packages available for South African Plains Game.
