Kirabo Safaris finished the year off with two great hunts. The Baker party from Benton Pennsylvania, consisting of Glenn & Christa Baker, Marty & Joyce Erdossy, Paul Carter and Robert Lindsay had an amazing and extremely successful hunt. Between the 4 hunters they bagged a total of 36 animals. Some of the highlights of the hunt were a majestic 58.5” Kudu bull, three beautiful Nyala bulls with the biggest measuring 28.5” and a great 30” Waterbuck.

Glenn celebrated his 68th birthday with Kirabo. As a token of our appreciation for his long standing friendship with the Kirabo family we arranged an old fashioned African bush party for him. The evening was filled with great fun and many laughs.


The group had a truly remarkable African Safari. newsdec14 Being true to our promise to provide our clients with a unique and complete African Safari, the group visited some of Southern Africa’s most spectacular locations in addition to their hunt. They visited the Chobe National Park in Botswana in combination with the Victoria Falls. Experiencing the abundant bird and wildlife associated with the area adjacent to the Chobe River was an opportunity of a life time which we believe added great value to their hunt. This was another example that Kirabo will go to great lengths to ensure that our clients leave South Africa completely satisfied.

Some New Friends From Down Under

newsdec6 Kirabo hosted a wonderful couple from Australia to finish off the year. Grant and Chris McNamara fulfilled their dream of hunting in Africa and bagged some exceptional trophies. The highlight of the week was Grant’s 54” Kudu bull. Chris turned the hunt into a battle of the sexes with her great shooting and quality of animals taken during the hunt.

Grant newsdec7 and Chris decided to add a trip to Pilansberg National Park to their hunt. This gave them an opportunity to experience the big 5 in their natural surroundings. Everybody had a great time and we look forward to their return. newsdec8

Non Hunting Information

newsdec13 To ensure that Kirabo remains more than just a hunting outfitter we continuously expand our non hunting activities to ensure that when you book with Kirabo you truly get a complete and satisfying African Safari. One of the highlights of 2010 is the addition of a Mozambique fishing trip that you choose as an add-on to your hunt. Mozambique is one of the best fishing locations in Southern Africa. The natural beauty of its wide white beaches, lagoons and calm Ocean is almost surpassed by the abundance of fish in its waters. The warm Benguela Sea Current ensures that any fishing trip is rewarding and successful.
