I once again want to thank you for a wonderful time and for the privilege of being able to hunt with you. As always you amaze me with your care and effort.
I want to give you a special thanks for living up and surpassing the stories I told Bill and Maryann about your Camp. I am sure they have expressed their thanks to you. I want to reconfirm their happiness with the hunt, I have spoken to Bill since I returned home, his comment was that Maryann keeps talking about the hunt even in church.
I like the small changes you and your team have made with posting the evening menu and the final meal at the campfire. I know this was a tough hunt as we were rained on every day but, it was great.
Just finished watching the video. Great hunt, great shooting. Sure brings back the memories from our hunt last year. Hanno, you are doing a great job!!

Hey guys, my dad and I just got back from our Africa Archery hunt with Authentic African Adventures. We weren't to sure about going there at first after buying the hunt at a NRA banquet. But after spending 7 days hunting down there I can say that it will no longer be a "once in a lifetime trip". I want to go again sometime in the next couple of years. Hunting is incredible, Hanno and everybody at camp are awesome, food is great. Really hard not to have a good time while hunting with this outfit. Check out our videos here........

Dave and I returned home to Nashville Tennessee safely. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you and Authentic African Adventures for the hunting experience of a lifetime. it has always been my dream to hunt dangerous game in Africa and after meeting you at the SCI convention in Jan 2012, I felt you were the one to book with. as we have now completed our hunt, I know I made a good decision. I can't think of a better safari experience. your camp was great with wonderful accommodations, friendly staff and great authentic food. The hunting area was perfect with wildlife everywhere. both you and Kyne were very professional as guides. you have given me a experience that I will enjoy remembering for the rest of my life. I hope to be your guest again. Thank you, Judge Bob Hamilton.
I had the privilege of accompanying Grant Van Houten on a trip to South Africa after he bought a hunt donated by Hanno Van Rensburg of Authentic African Adventures while attending an NRA dinner in Pendleton, Oregon. Being my first time doing something like this, I was impressed by Hanno himself and his staff, our accommodations, the food, care for animals taken, and the overall quality of animals taken.
It was everything he had advertised and more. Hanno has a vision to make his property a place where trophy animals can be taken and he is working hard to make that vision a reality.It was the trip of a lifetime
If you have ever wanted to go to Africa for photo or hunting safaris, Hanno is your best bet. Great people, great experiences.
It was the greatest trip I have ever made. I have hunted and fished all over and Authentic African Adventures was the best. If you want to call and talk about it, call me.

They will miss having the time of their life!!! "A" trip of a lifetime has turned into "I can't wait to come back" and I'm not even done yet.
“Thank you for being hosts to the most incredible hunting experience of my life! Thank you also for allowing me to come into your home and treating me as a friend, and not a client. Your generosity, grace and patience in dealing with two old codgers from the South truly made your home feel as if it were my home away from home. I would also like to express to you my appreciation and admiration for your wonderful staff. Kyne is a PH without equal. His knowledge of our quarry, his expertise with firearms and ammunition,his ability to multi-task by focusing on the hunt while at the same time being always mindful of the hunters' needs who have placed their trust in him has earned my deepest respect not only as a hunter ,but as a wonderful man as well. And Liza, anyone who can cook goat fifty different ways and make each dish tasty is a top chef in my book.I will miss the wild game dishes as well, and hopefully upon my return to SA it will be on my birthday so we can enjoy another "wet cake". I so much want others here to see what I have seen and experienced in South Africa.”

I bought a African Safari by Hanno van Rensburg at a banquet in Cedar City. We went on the hunt this August. It was FABULOUS! Everything about Hanno's safaris is top notch. We had absolutely no problems. Great PH's, excellent trackers and skinners and support staff. The accommodations, transportation and food was excellent. I would buy this hunt in a flash if its offered again this year at the banquet. You may use me as a reference for this safari.
Last summer, I had the good fortune of going on a leopard hunt in the Limpopo province of South Africa with Hanno van Rensburg of Authentic African Adventures. Hanno and his staff worked very hard to make sure every animal we harvested was of exceptional quality and he has access to tens of thousands of acres to hunt on. Accommodations were modern and comfortable and I would recommend Hanno and Authentic African Adventures to anyone in pursuit of quality plains game and leopard.

My wife and I hunted with Hanno in July of 2009 for our 40th wedding anniversary. It was a memorable anniversary thanks to Hanno and his great crew. I was able to take the largest blue wildebeast of the year on his place and 4 other trophies. We also booked a couple of days of sightseeing with Hanno and we saw some marvelous places that a regular tourist would never get to see. Hanno's experience showed and he gave over the proverbial 110 percent. He catered to our every need, even when we didn't know we had the need. His other PH, Steven, is the best tracker I have ever seen. I would hunt again with Hanno in a heartbeat (so would my wife). I would recommend him to anyone.

Our family's recent trip to South Africa was truly the trip of a lifetime. Your staff and professionals are highly experienced and service oriented.
I would like to especially commend our guides through Kruger. Kyne Edwards and Flippie de Kock took care of every detail and their experience with the area, history, and especially the game added value to our trip beyond expectation. On this type of trip everyone is in close quarters traveling for hours in the vehicle. To us they became part of our family.
We booked the sunset tour (with spot lighting) from Olifants rest camp and invited Flippie and Kyne to join us. Because they were with us, the whole vehicle of visitors were able to see several animals that would have gone unnoticed. Without them it would have been a nice evening drive with the wind blowing through our hair. With their experience we saw porcupine, small spotted genet, spring hare, hienna, and realized the plentiful animals lurking in the bush completely unnoticed.
Your people are your business and you have an outstanding group at AAA.
Thanks for making our trip amazing.
