My son and I had the tremendous fortune of getting to meet Grant, Sarine, Anthony and Abigail in 2009. To say we were absolutely swept off our feet by the entire experience would be a gross understatement. After talking with Grant on a number of occasions, I changed my previously planned hunt to go with Grant instead. On a scale from 1 to 10, I whole-heartedly rate East Cape Safaris a solid 15!

I am a wildlife manager of some 40+ years, so naturally I was very analytical in what Grant offered for the price. The quality of the game on Grant's property is unbeatable. The numbers blew my son and I away. We saw more game in one day than I have seen in my entire life, combined. The trackers and skinners were every bit of what I see on TV. We had a couple of animals that we hit poorly, and Grant's tracker, Da'Man found the animals before the dogs (Jack Russells) did. And the price for the trip was far below what I thought it would be. I was looking at a 350"+ elk hunt and the Africa trip was much, much less. The elk hunt was $7200, whether we got a shot at a bull or not. The trip to East Cape Safaris was a management package. Being a wildlife manager, I understand the need to keep herd numbers below the carrying capacity. Plus we generated roughly 3,300 lbs. of meat to Grant's family and the families of his employees. We brought home several gorgeous trophies, got plenty of shooting, my son got his very first animal with a bow in Africa (how many can say that?), but most importantly, we met a family that not only spoiled us rotten, but became family to us. My son and I grew to love this family more than words could ever describe.

I would suggest two things here. First, if you are an outdoor enthusiast (hunter, photographer or watcher), you MUST go to Africa. Secondly, if you go to Africa, you absolutely WILL NOT find a better PH/outfitter to go with than East Cape Safaris. They just simply cannot be beat. I am hoping/planning to return next August, and can't wait to see the Abrahamson family again. If I don't pull a trigger, just getting to see this wonderful family will be worth the trip.

We so enjoyed our stay with you and the extra lengths which you went to to make us feel welcome in so many ways. The side trips to the other properties;
the trips to the elephant park the Elephant ride and of course the opportunity to see Graaff Reinet were all so appreciated.

Meeting Abigail and Anthony junior more than just once and seeing their schools and hearing about their ambitions meant more than you would realise most probably. They are already fine young people with good ambitions and we look forward to following their careers with interest. We thoroughly enjoyed the company of Anthony senior and Beverley the delicious meal shared with them in their home. There is so much more we could comment on about this Safari but the most memorable thing for us must be the warm hospitality shown by you and your extended family.

We both thoroughly enjoyed the final night and next morning in Port Elizabeth with you both.

Hunting animals always throws up the odd challenge, the Bushpig and the long range shooting using sticks will be a memory for me. The quality of many of the animals was right up there as was Roubel's knowledge and hunting competence. I will have no trouble in suggesting any keen Kiwi contemplating a trip to the Eastern Cape contact ECS!

We had a fabulous time. Brandon will not stop talking about the experience. I am sure it is something he will remember for his whole life. You and your staff, and family, outdid every expectation I had. Your facilities are superb; your staff was excellent; your family and your hospitality were without equal in my experience.

The quality and quantity of your game was beyond words. My first concern was how a PH would respond to a 12-year-old client but I could tell immediately that you were not going to be condescending or brusque. You made Brandon feel like a true sportsman. I just got back to my desk after making the rounds of town to show my friends the photos. My first stop was to my friend the taxidermist who was amazed at Brandon ‘s animals. He has been to Africa and does quite a bit of African game. Brandon went to sleep at 6 PM last night and got up at 10 AM this morning. I forced myself to stay up until 9PM last night and got up at my regular 6 AM time this morning and even now, at 2 PM, I feel great. It was very nice of you to include the Addo trip in with your package and it was especially friendly of you to have us dine with your father and mother. That was indeed an honor and a pleasure.

I would be happy to serve as a reference for your hunting operation. My phone numbers are: Office 570-785-3800; Home 570-785-5670; Cell 570-960-1085. There is not even one small detail that I could think of which would be a negative to your services. Brandon talks about Anthony and Abigail, and I truly feel that their association together made it even more special to Brandon. I was as thrilled as Brandon to be able to have this experience. It is the first of my hunting career not to be behind the gun and I wondered how it would be. It was great!! The experience with my grandson was equal to, if not better than, my past 32 years of hunting.

My best wishes to all of you and my God bless the Abrahamson Clan now and in the future.

Let me start off by saying this message was unsolicited by this outfitter. As a professional guide I have had the opportunity to hunt and fish with a wide array of people, outfitters and guide businesses. Having hunted since I was six years old and Guiding for over 20 years one gains a wide span of knowledge about the hunting and fishing industry. I am not a celebrity but I am an outdoor writer for a hunting and fishing magazine. To say I am hard to please is probably too harsh but I am a stickler for quality and attention to detail. East Cape Safaris is by far the best outfitter I have EVER hunted with.

Being an outdoor writer one must be honest and call bad, bad and good, good. Readers these days have more access to relevant data in researching than ever before. Grant and Sarine's attention to personal detail is second to none. In an ever changing hunting industry where PUT and TAKE is the norm and getting the hunters dollars is the focus. Grant and Sarine are indeed a breath of fresh air in what's becoming a stale industry. Their effort to ensure your hunt is the hunt of a lifetime is incredible. Their hunting experience is second to none with all animals grown in their native habitat on their properties. Again this is not PUT the animal there from a pen then TAKE by canned hunting. This is real hunting! The quality of their animals is an industry high. The accommodations are excellent and the food is delicious the staff are happy workers who often sing as they go about their daily duties. If you've ever dreamed of that one hunt of a lifetime give EAST CAPE SAFARIS a chance I know you wont be disappointed.
