We thought we would spoil Ken with a little pheasant hunting. What a experience. That is just one of the nice things about hunting in Africa, the big variety of plains game and bird hunting you get to choose from.

This is what Dr. Steve C. Jensen, Sonora CA had to say: "As with all hunting experiences past 20+ years you develop pre-concerned ideas of what might be. The hunting camp here exceeded my expectations in all ways. The scope of hunting, the quality of animals and the staff are all outstanding. Best hunting camp ever. I need to build a bigger game room if I come back. Consider you all like family not associates. Fantastic fond memories. I love South-Africa and it’s culture."

This is what Gyle Dale had to say about his experience: The hunting was terrific. My PH was knowledgeable, diligent and was able to get me opportunities at some very nice animals. I am always concerned when hunting a new location and outfitter for the first time, but the entire team at Dries Visser are pros at SA hunting and are prepared to earn your trust and satisfaction. Although late rains and mother nature created some unusual circumstances, the DV team worked hard to make sure my experience was memorable. It was a great team that made good hunting partners.

This was our first time to Africa. We had heard stories, both good and bad, about hunting in Africa. We really did not know what to expect. It has been one of our best hunting experiences as a couple.. We cannot wait to return and bring our friends to hunt at this amazing place. We feel part of the family here at Dries Visser. Thanks again for everything! Brian and Deanna Cronin, USA

Read all about Jake's hunting experience with this Zebra:

"All day we sat seeing warthogs through the day like every other casual day. The weather was so bad, and nothing was moving, so I decided to read a bunch of hunting stories from a magazine. One part through the day Cobus said “there’s a Zebra” He jammed me out of my seat and said just kidding. In the last three hours of the day Cobus said “Zebra”, I looked to my right and sure enough, there was a majestic Zebra, standing 30 yards away coming in swiftly. I quickly got up and grabbed my bow and got in position to take the animal of my dreams. Everything was working out perfectly and the windows were open, so it was just me and the Zebra. I was just waiting for a clean shot when it came time, I took a couple of deep breaths to gather myself and drew back and took my time with putting my pin on his shoulder and then released the shot.

Hoping I did enough I saw the arrow struck hard and the Zebra running for thick cover when Cobus got out of the blind and told me he could see the Zebra I was ecstatic. I did it!"

"My first day hunting was an experience of a lifetime. We saw warthogs, Impala and waterbuck. Getting to shoot an Impala was amazing. The second day out hunting was long, but worth the wait. Being 14 and getting the opportunity to shoot a warthog and Impala was a great experience. Thank you to all the great people that made this dream a reality." Shelbe Schmidt

"My Impala hunt was short, sweet and to the point. I went out around 1 with my grandpa and Anthony. By 02:15 I had my Impala. We had a family of warthogs come in as well as many female Impala. Then a Blesbuck come in and just as I was about to shoot it, an Impala went right in front of my crossbow. I almost shot both but the Blesbuck ran away and I made a perfect shot on the Impala.

He dropped right away then fell into the water. It was an experience of a lifetime and something I will never forget." Skyler

"If you have or have not been here to South-Africa, before, this is the place to hunt.

This is my second trip to this country. My first with Dries Visser and they are second to none. We see game every day. The bow blinds are the best I have ever used. Roomy, quiet and great to shoot out of.

I came for a Kudu and on the second day I shot a great one. This place has it all. We brought grandkids and they say it was better than going to the zoo." Thanks! " Shane

"Had the time of my life with DVS and Antonie! I was able to take my top three animals on my wish list, plus a bonus Blesbuck to go with my Gemsbuck, Black Wildebeest and Zebra.

The weather was not ideal for a few days but that did not defer DVS or Antonie. We hunted hard and made all the right adjustments to be successful.

A bowhunter dreaming of going to Africa should book a hunt with DVS today!" Shad

I spent my 74th Birthday on this safari and It was the best birthday present I could have given myself. I hunted here last year and plan to hunt with Dries again next year. All the staff is considerate and helpful. The game is plentiful and of excellent quality. I got my Buffalo on the last hour of the 10th day. Memorable. Thanks to all! Jerry Barth

"We arrived at the Compound and were greeted with exceptional hospitality. Every aspect of this facility was outstanding and professional. The care and concern of our expectations was above and beyond. Our needs. All personnel were overly polite and accommodating. The hunting I can’t express my gratitude. It was an experience I never dream of happening. My wife and I will plan to soon return to enjoy this wonderful hunting facility. Thanks to everyone at Dries Visser Safaris for this unforgettable trip. In five days of hunting I shot 4 magnificent animals. What more could you ask for." Jeff and Sherrie Kramer

"My family and I were on a back to back Safaris. Dries Visser was our 2nd stop. Dries Visser was set up specifically for bowhunting. They were nothing short of that. Everything in the hide was very thought out making it a very high percentage opportunity.

Taking out as many variables as possible like yardage-smell-angle-elevation. The availability of a crossbow was key to my son’ experience. He was able to harvest 3 animals with it. Our PH was great and was very professional. He did a great job on getting us on the animals that we wanted. Our overall experience was nothing short of fantastic."

Kathy got to spend an amazing day with the elephants.
After 7 days of strategy and hard hunting and the hard work of my Ph Willem, I filled my dream list with beautiful gemsbuck, springbuck in the last hour a fantastic nyala. Can’t thank DV enough for the service and flexibility. The trophy quality for the better, required reshuffling of my wish list and my PH + DV made sure my expectations were exceeded. My wife who was not hunting, also enjoyed her time in camp and excursions. Can’t thank Elana enough!

Jeff and Sue Eder - "We hunted with Dries Visser August 2018. My husband Jeff hunted primarily for the black Wildebeest with Gerald our PH. He was fortunate enough to get a beautiful Black Wildebeest in the first hour of Day one, remarkably. I had a package which include Impala, warthog, blue wildebeest and gemsbuck.

It was a wonderful hunt and the staff from our PH, our Chef, all those who cleaned our room, cooked and of course each PH will remain in our memories forever.

Good hunting Dries Visser, and all who lives this life. You are truly blessed to live and do what you do!"

The majority of our hunters are from the States, but we do get a couple of European hunters as well. We share our passion to any and every hunter interested, it doesn't matter from which corner of the earth they come from. We had two amazing hunters from Spain earlier in our hunting season and even though communication is the biggest hurdle sometimes, we all speak the same language when it comes to hunting!

"I came to Africa with my father and my brother and Dries Visser has made it a trip I will never forget. They met my expectations on my hunt. I enjoyed every part of the trip. The hunting in South-Africa was great. I myself got a Impala, Warthog, gemsbuck and wildebeest. Every hunt was exciting as the last. Our PH did a fantastic job, great trackers. He also did a really good job with the photos. I would very much recommend Dries Visser if any one is planning a trip to Africa."

The staff, the facilities, the animals we harvested were awesome. This was my 4th hunt in Africa and I have to say, this was as good as it gets. I really want to thank everyone here for this great experience with my sons. Thanks again."

From my email contacts through my return home, everything was handled professionally and with extreme concern for the client. DVS is truly an exceptional hunting operation."

DeVane Webster "We started our time in Africa with a tour of Kruger and God’s Window, which was fascinating. Then, the ten days here at Dries Visser Safaris was a dream come true. Top quality blinds, game opportunities, PH’s, food and Friendships. Those guys know the wildlife, how to set up for bowhunting, and how the best show the game taken in photo and video. Took 6 animals in ten days, and passed on many trophies, This was the best. "

Over the last 8 years I've hunted 32 days with Dries Visser Safaris and taken 32 trophy animals! Everyday is filled with new, first-time experiences. Last year (2018) Dries offered some hunting opportunities I had only dreamed about and with the help of my PH Gerald those dreams came true! Luck is when hard work and persistence meets opportunity and I got lucky. I'm like a kid in a candy store... I'll have one of each; thank you very much. I can't wait to return in August 2019 to see what new adventures await me. I've already started packing!

Ken Dittig, put a group of friends together to join him on his adventure to Africa during our 2018 hunting season. They hunted later during our hunting season, and was very successful during their time with us. It is always a big challenge for any hunter who hunts with a traditional bow, but Ken made it look like a walk in the park.
