I have bow hunted Limcroma on two occasions & had a great time. Dries Visser gets some great press on the internet. Just would like to know how they compare .
Dries Visser pricing on Cape Buffalo is lower than Limcroma for a bigger bull...
I hunted Africa the first time joining a friend who won an auction hunt. The outfitter had good reviews and I would say we took some nice animals and had a good safari overall. However, I hunted the second time with Limcroma accompanied by my family. It was a night vs. day experience. Limcroma was far superior in every possible aspect from how they cater to hunters of all disciplines to the fantastic amenities and activities that were available for my family to also enjoy their time in camp as non hunters. Trophy quality was also beyond compare. Never hunted with Dries, and I have only heard good things as well. I just would never recommend to anyone to book with price as the deciding factor regardless of the location or species. There is so much more to an African safari to consider when comparing them beyond costs.
I wasn't trying to imply anything one way or the other. In your first post, you made a point to mention that Dries offered a lower price on a Cape buff, so it sounded to me like you were looking for a reason for the price difference. My only inference was to offer my opinion that price differences among African outfitters can vary for many different reasons. Trophy fees at Limcroma were on average 15% higher than the other outfitter I had hunted with previously. Daily rates were a bit higher as well. But, at Limcroma I also had access to 10X the amount of property to hunt, and I saw 10X the amount of game and the overall trophy quality was beyond compare. In fact,every aspect from the food, lodging, staff to logistics was just far superior. So, in that instance, the price difference was justified because I got what I paid for and more. I was just saying that getting a cheaper price on a trophy fee doesn't necessarily mean a better hunt in the big picture.
Anyway, glad to hear you had great safaris so far, and congrats on your Buff! Please share your trophy pics and story here on Bowsite.
