Hunting References & Testimonials 2017
After thirty years of dreaming and a year of planning, Somerby delivered on a hunt of a lifetime for my son and I. They took us to the Northwest province and to the Limpopo to present us with a wide variety of terrain and plains game, from wide open savannah to dense thorn brush, with practically every type of plains game imaginable. Accommodations ranged from rustic tented camps to luxurious lodges with incredible chefs and fine South African wines. They gave us an experience never to be forgotten and we can't wait to come back again.
Our PH was incredible at extending his expertise in shooting and shot placement on animals to my wife of 54 years and ensuring her of her springbuck Grand Slam, 4 of which are SCI gold medal. He always had our best interests in mind whether hunting or traveling. We felt like we had the very best chance of harvesting quality animals.
My wife and I, along with my son and daughter in law just returned from the most enjoyable trip put on by Somerby Safaris. I was not sure about going to South Africa but there was not one detail that they had not thought of. They met us at the airport and had the rest of the trip planned. My son and I hunted and our wives were escorted by their guide to shopping and sight seeing. The lodges we stayed at were 5 star. The food was wonderful. The people were friendly and kind. If you are going on a safari, go with someone who knows what they are doing: go with Somerby.
Somerby Safaris is a very professional organization. It has quality animals at its disposal and has PHs that are second to none. Drom is always interested in making the experience for the hunter the best that it can be. With accommodations for lodging and food that far exceed the standard hunt, and companionship that builds relationships for a lifetime, I wholeheartedly recommend Somerby Safaris.
Somerby Safaris is without a doubt a great choice for your next African Adventure. I would highly recommend them. Great crew of people!
Going on an African Safari has always been on my "Bucket List!" Ever since I was a small child and watched the movie "Hatari" I knew that Africa had to be in my plans! The folks at Somerby Safaris were a joy to be around! Total professionals that also made me feel like I was part of their family. The PH'S took the time to really help me and answer all of my questions and yet didn't make me feel like a novice hunter. I had such a blast that I'm definitely going back!
Somerby Safaris provided from the beginning conversation of a Safari to the final handshake goodbye (until next time) top notch professionalism, from Somerby's whole team.
Great people, from the PH's and everyone else involved!
An adventure you will never forget!
My wife and I have gone on multiple guided hunts in the States but had no experience with hunting in Africa. From the moment we met Somerby Safaris in the airport, our time spent with them was everything you would hope for when planning such a trip. The overall experience was exceptional. The food, accommodation, hunting vehicles, PHs, and the hospitality were all over the top - we could not have asked for anything better.
This was my third safari and the very best. Because of his skill and personality, I would feel comfortable hunting for any trophy in any location with Andre and Somerby Safaris. We will return in the future.
We love Somerby Safaris. They take care of every detail. They strive to make your hunt/vacation a trip of a lifetime!
I have been on 50 guided hunts around the world, and Somerby Safaris is one of the very best firms I have ever worked with. They will do all they reasonably can to make the hunt a complete success. They pay attention to all details of the hunt to make certain that the client will have no concerns before, during or after the hunt. Before the hunt, they spend all the time necessary to make certain that all pre-hunt details are complete. They meet the clients at the airport and the PH stays with the client until the hunt is over and the client is boarding the airplane to return home. This alone is enough to highly recommend the firm. Once the hunt begins, the concessions they use are excellent and the hunter will have every opportunity to take the animals he/she wants to hunt. The quality of the game is outstanding and the experience is first rate. I recommend Somerby Safaris completely without any reservations.
Because I was traveling with my wife Kim, I had concerns about whether a non-hunter would enjoy such a trip. I chose Somerby Safaris over many others based upon the high recommendations of several friends. The results were that this was the best vacation that we have ever been on, not to mention the best hunt that I have ever been on. Kim and I can't wait to go back.
This was a chance of a lifetime event. We were served as we never were before. From the time we got off the plane our needs, safety and desires were the number one concern of every staff member. We will forever believe this to be one of the most memorable times in life.
Somerby Safaris met and exceeded our expectations on all of our requests, excursions and by far on all of our trophy animals.
First Africa hunt at 30 years old and I will say it's only a matter of time till I will be back at Somerby Safaris. The team of Somerby is made up of some of the nicest, friendliest people I have ever met. They take care of you in every way needed in order to make your trip a memorable one.
My experience with Somerby Safaris was top notch. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to make not only my hunt but a super experience for my wife to enjoy all that Africa has to offer and see.
Awesome team. They will take excellent care of you and any needs you may have during your trip.
Somerby was like family. First class operation, any needs I had were taken care of. Camps were top notch and food was the best as I ever had in past safaris.
Somerby Safaris is a first class organization. The people are extremely accomodating and caring. They take care of everything so that your experience is a positive one. As one of my fellow hunters said, "all you have to do is pull the trigger" because of the excellence of Drom and his entire team. I cannot imagine having a better experience in South Africa than I did with Somerby Safaris.
