Why?Great overall experience. Guides were local and had grown up in area so they knew the terrain well. Very friendly and helpful. Lodging was incredible, beautiful lodge with great food. Service was excellent. My first hunt overseas so I don't have a good comparison but far better than guides in US. Not a single complaint.
