"Our 10 day hunt was a dream come true. On day #1 we took 9 quality animals, with the remaining days just as great. Dave, Craig and Nikki made this our hunt of a lifetime. We had many “firsts” that made our adventure here extremely rewarding."

"This trip was life changing not only because of what we saw and hunted, but also because we now have family we love across the ocean. Can’t say enough about the hunt. Craig knows these camps and animals like the back of his hand. Already planning my next trip in my mind, and will bring the boys along. Thanks for a lifetime of memories during the last 7 days. Dave and Nikki, you should be proud of your outfit. Outstanding hospitality!"

"First, we have to say what a wonderful family. As soon as you get here you are part of it. We had such a wonderful time. Each day was different than the next and the hunting was amazing. Dave worked so hard and knew exactly what to do, and Nikki made each meal so great that your tastebuds couldn’t wait until the next. We love Matthew and Bradley and will miss them all so much. What an honor to meet them all."

"This hunt was a true African adventure with 2 clients who have been over many times. It was hard hunting with tricky wind and a superior PH, Craig. It was a management hunt – 110 Springbuck + 5 Zebra taken, and a lot of territory covered. Having a beautiful hostess who is a gourmet cook was a treat! Dave is a delightful host. We have had a great time, and hope to come back. We also enjoyed Bradley and Matthew."

~ Walter Dennison and Dennis Wygocki

"Hey to my fellow Canadians!! I have never worked harder or longer on a hunt, nor enjoyed a hunt more than I did this week. Craig is a fabulous PH and a taskmaster! The food has been excellent, Dave and Nikki are wonderful hosts. This is my second trip to Africa, after my previous trip to Namibia went sideways. Leopard’s Valley Safaris made me a believer!"

~ Martin Fischer

"I have made several international hunts-none as great as this one. Many animals, good food, staff and guides. They could remove a few rocks from the roads..ha ha ha"

~ Dean Retzleff

"An A+ experience. I had the graciously offered opportunity to visit with the Davenports-not a hunt, but a visit with “internet” friends, since I was already 1 and a half hours away on a different ranch. Boy!!! What a great time- a wonderful family – lots of game viewing and a bit of baboon culling-one even charged and was killed by Dave at 5 feet. I will round up some guys and be back to get a big Kudu. Food, accommodation, game – all was 5 star."
