Game Conditions Comments:I have been to Africa on Safari with other outfitters multiple times and Harloo Safaris is the best by far. Abundant wildlife. The food was superb and the lodging was first class - my wife loved it. I took a 41 inch Cape Buffalo and numerous plains game. You have to work for your trophies, a real safari experience. Bring your camera, when not hunting you will have the opportunity to take GREAT wildlife photos. The most friendly and professional staff I have ever encountered on a hunting trip. Take a side trip to the Jozini where you will see rhino, Crocs and Hippo plus numerous plains game. I highly recommend Harloo Safaris and WILL go back.
