    If you've been looking for an affordable hunt in Africa, look no further. Prices for most African hunts today are just too expensive for many, so when you deal directly with the folks who live on the 25,000 acre PRIVATE ranch, you save BIG! This ranch offers over 22 species of wild game. No "put and take" operation here, and many of the top South Africa PH/Guides want to bring their clients here to hunt, but are very restricted. Trophy management is why this ranch consistently produces top record book trophies and this is hunting friends! These animals were born here and they know what your all about, just like our Deer, Elk and other wild animals. This ranch offers open plains and deep, bush covered ravines that gives the animals exactly what each species requires to grow and thrive. I've hunted here many times and can assure you, it's a great place to hunt, whether alone, with friends or family. We cater to all. Your daily rate of $280 per day includes: round trip pick up and return to Port Elizabeth airport; lodging (private rooms/bath), meals, drinks, evening lounging at the bar, daily laundry/maid service, your own Professional Hunter (Guide), Tracker, Skinners, field prep of game, skinning/fleshing/salting of trophies, delivery to the Dip/Pack/Shipper, daily ground transportation. We offer rifle rental at $20 per day (various calibers) and ammo at $3 per round. Compare my prices and you'll see, that Kudu you've always wanted is within reach! Contact me with any questions, for references or photos. I'll be glad to sort this out for you from the planning stage until your trophies arrive in the US.

    They are some very good prices. I will keep you in mind. Looking to go back next summer - 2014. Rifle only or do you offer bow hunting as well? Do you have a website? I would like to see photos of lodge etc. as my wife will be accompanying me this time.

    N/T: yes, I have a web site. Much of it is under construction due to my web master passing away. For now it's being rebuilt piecemeal. Due to having many areas in all of southern, central and eastern Africa, it's easier for me to email you pics of this ranch, which I will be glad to do. Also, I have plenty of client references. We welcome archery hunters as well. My web site is: www.grayghostsafaris.com If you have any questions, just email me at: [email protected]
