Default Sharing my South Africa adventure...

Last summer I took a trip to South Africa with Limcroma Safaris. I had an unbelievable time as I spent it with my family. In addition to the experience with Limcroma was top notch. Just thought Iíd share a video...

By the way- after I watched myself I dropped 50. Dang- I was fat.

I was wondering when you were going to post this Ray. I've watched it several times. Still crazy watching that Giraffe get up and go after you guys. Wild story. Awesome trip. 9 more months for me and I'll be back there again

I would have shat myself when that Giraffe got back up & started charging.

That was a very well put together video and a BIG congrats on all of those animals.

Yes I did! The big animal (elk like) shot. You see such a large animal and forget to aim, point and shoot. Luckily he only went 100 yards or so. I have a Go Fund Me for my taxi bills. Feel free to donate.

The giraffe was CRAZY! What the video doesnít show is that we sat there for 30 minutes, only a couple of feet away just talking. The giraffe appeared to be expired. The tracker took off like flash. So funny

Thank you! When the giraffe stood up the wrecking ball head was crazy scary. Highlight of the trip. I laughed until my stomach hurt

Yeah that dog would crazy when you would draw but silent. After the shot just too much to handle. I didnít take a rifle and used the guides 30.06 and I shot him in the exact spot I was instructed too. Just a fluke thing, I guess.

I used 125 grain Ramcats. 635 total grain arrow and it worked well, even pass thru on the eland. The only caution is I would weigh every broadhead. Ramcat broadheads are often 15 grains +\-. I love them and know Iím only getting 2 broadheads out of every pack.

All the meat was consumed by very needy Africans. Along with camp meat.

My wife and I are taking our 7 year old with us.....he says he wants to shoot something while we're there, but we'll see if he can pull the trigger on a hog here first. Last year he said he wanted a hog, but decided to let me shoot at the last minute. I'm not going to push him, I'm just glad he enjoys being out there with me.

Great video Raypo. Thanks for sharing it wit the forum.

Limcroma Safaris is very fortunate to have their own in-house videographer. Henk Jacobs of BushBro Productions can capture your safari on HD video at a very reasonable price considering the high-quality production value he offers. You can view more of BushBro's work on YouTube and Vimeo if you are interested. Anyone hunting with Limcroma will have the option to have their safari filmed if they desire.... I had my last safari back in May of 2017 filmed by Henk's team, and I was very pleased with the results. Those memories will last a lifetime. Feel free to PM me for details. I would be happy to put anyone in touch with Henk who is interested in having their safari filmed.

Could not agree more..! Limcroma is a first-class operation in every way, and the owner Hannes Els, is one of the most ethical, honest, and affable of a guy as you will every meet. I have done 5 safaris in various African destinations with Limcroma to date, and looking forward to safari #6 in the not to distant future.
