Hi guys, my American Hunting brethren.

If you are looking for an Outfitter to meet your South African Safari Hunting needs, look no further than Erik and Francois of Kaiwhai Safaris. I have hunted with them twice in 2018 and I’m already planning my next trip. 

Pressure is on my brothers to put me on another trophy-book animal. Buffalo with the bow next year!

I first met Erik when I was playing for the Crusaders on our South African tour in 2015. On a late notice he organised a hunting trip on our day off, which was an incredible experience. We exchanged numbers and 2 years later I got in contact to organise a 4 day hunting trip with my wife’s family. 

I asked for an experience of a lifetime, and that is exactly what Kaiwhai Safaris delivered. We booked our flights and Erik & Francois organised everything after that. 

Pickups from the airport, rifles, drinks, amazing accommodation, and a great place to hunt a large variety of animals. 

Kaiwhai Safaris made our hunting trip such a success. They created a fun, yet save environment, where they shared their knowledge and enthusiasm for what they do. It is a trip that all of us left knowing we had that “EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME” and more importantly gained friendship for life.

We will be back without a doubt.

I’ve been hunting with Kaiwhai Safaris for more than 4 years now . With comfort I can say that the Kaiwhai Team (Erik & Francois) has the best knowledge of the field, not only for hunting purposes but concerning safety and success as well. It is always a privilege to spend a hunting trip with them, from serious hunting during the day, to a relaxed night next to the camp fire – they got it all!

“What an experience!!!

I have hunted in many parts of the world and have never seen anybody with your experience of hunting in such difficult conditions. It’s almost as if you guys knew exactly how and where to find the right buck for me every time. You guys are extremely knowledgeable about the conditions and knew exactly what to do in every situation. This made our hunt so much more rewarding and we will definitely be back next year. Great job guys!!”
