2019 Africa Cocktail Party
Somebody’s going to win a free African Safari!
Come join us for an opportunity to meet one of the top Professional Hunters in South Africa and Mozambique (and meet up with the crew at Outdoors International). Not only will you be able to hear the stories from people who’ve been there, see the pictures and videos, you’ll have a chance to throw your name in the hat to win an all inclusive trip to South Africa and create your own stories to bring back and share.
We’re going to have a catered event, with a Safari Hunting Package Giveaway, to offer anybody who might be interested in a trip to South Africa a chance to visit with professionals who live there and the adventurous who have been there. Even if Africa is not on your bucket list you might find yourself captivated by the enthusiasm of the people who have been there and the desire to return is almost universal once someone has been there.
Please invite your friends to come with you!
You’ll be a hero if they win (and maybe they’ll take you with them).

Lodging and Accomodations
The lodge consists of 6 en-suite rooms, decorated in a modern afro-ethnic style.
The food is South African ‘Boere’ (local) with a touch of European. Expect lots of meat, vegetables, and fruit, all complimented by a variety of South African wines.
LOTS of game, and you will be hunting high trophy quality animals.
The staff is exceptional, the PH’s are fun, friendly, and professional, with spectacular food and lodging.
The hunting will be by spot-and-stalk, or from blinds (almost all archery hunts are from blinds.)
Bowhunter friendly. A truly amazing place to hone your bowhunting skills.
A .300 is a good choice for rifle hunters for most species, and bowhunters can just use their deer or elk setup.
Nearest Airport: Johannesburg, South Africa
Many hunters worry about travelling to Africa, but there is no need. The airport in South Africa is easy, clean and modern. Most people speak good English, and the PH will be right there to help you with the entire process. Once you arrive in Jo-burg you will be transported anywhere you need to go until you are returned to the airport at the end of your Safari.
