“We had such a great time this week!! The lodge was beyond beautiful! The hunt was fantastic and the experience as a whole was absolutely phenomenal! The service of food was amazing. Becky had a great time with Zoë chasing lizards. Her favourite part of this all was going to see the cheetahs. Sheila’s favourite part was where she and Ruan shot the cheetah. Richard’s favourite part was listening to the wildebeest and the stalk on the springbok. Hope to come back soon and to stay in touch!!
Your friends from now on.”

“Thanks for a wonderful “ Maiden safari”. We had a great time, and who knew that stinky and dead things could create such dinner table conversations. Meeting Zoë and her friend was a delightful bonus. The staff were all very friendly and polite, and the cleaning and laundry provided to our rooms was first class.
As for the hunt it was way better than Danny had imagined. In one place, he could hunt a dry river bed, mountains, koppies and plains. The choice of hunting methods – blinds, glassing, walk an stalk, etc – added to the adventure. Although it may have been unexpected, getting five animals in six days was great.
Trophy animals were plentiful. The changing scenery while hunting was most enjoyable. Desert elephants on the side of the mountain was a great bonus. Thanks to Jonas for helping me climbing – I learned my limitation!
Best wishes for all your future hunts – it was well worth it”

“This is my first trip to Africa and I could not have selected a better outfitter than Shona Hunting adventures.We started our adventure when Ruan picked us up in Windhoek. We travelled to Henties Bay on the coast for fishing. We caught 18 cob and 3 sharks, what a thrill. We also went on a whale watching tour.
In was now time to travel to the hunting lodge, upon arrival we were met by Vera, Johann and their daughter Zoë. The accommodation was first class and the food excellent. I am a very picky eater and they met every need of my picky stomach.
Hunting: Johann, Jonas and Alu were first class guides. They put every effort into putting you in position to harvest an animal. I took a Gemsbok, Kudu, Springbok, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra and Impala.
I would unconditionally recommend Shona as a hunting destination.”

Thank you so very much for such an amazing experience. The lodge, the sites, the food, all of it was enjoyable and the sense of humors topped it all off.
We will most definitely be returning for that giraffe.
I was expecting a much different African hunt, I found that Vern had warned me that Africa was addictive, yet I expected to be terrified. What I found was amazing. Even the hike up the mountains were worth the views from the top.
Vern is very pleased with the Eland, Zebra, Kudu and Gemsbok he got this trip.
Words cannot express how much we enjoyed the experience.
