CLIENT REVIEWS

When I decided to hunt Africa in the early 2000’s, I took advantage of my training at the world’s largest field-sports show to interview 52 different African outfitters. As a trained psychotherapist with 30+ years of experience I felt I could pick the best outfitter based on the interviews. I chose BOBSOK and have never regretted it. I have hunted with Phil and Kate eight times, taken my wife and daughter twice and successfully recommended them to dozens of hunters and their families. My original selection of Phil and Kate was spot-on.

Bosbok Safaris and Phil and Kate de Kock are names that are synonymous with quality, value, honesty and friendship. Fourteen years ago I interviewed over 30 South African Outfitters at the Harrisburg PA Sports Show. Phil and Kate were my first choice and I have enjoyed seven safaris in ten years with them. I would say that they are doings things right and I am proud to call them my friends. Book a trip with Bosbok Safaris and get ready to have the best adventure that South Africa can offer.

From our first look to our last breakfast, everything was unbelievable. Spectacular hunting, wonderful meals, awesome scenery. Phil and Kate, we are glad to call you friends. Our best vacation ever. Until next time! We can’t wait to return.

I would highly recommend Bosbok Safaris to anyone considering either a hunting or a photo safari to South Africa. Phil’s skill as a professional hunter and guide, is second to none. Hunting is by spot and stalk and and the trophy quality is excellent. Kate and Phil’s accommodation and hospitality are outstanding. I booked my first trip in 2014 and enjoyed the experience so much I came back again in 2017.

Phil’s approach to the hunt made this so much more than a ‘shoot’, but showed us the challenges we wanted to experience and provided us with a genuine adventure. Kate, your hospitality and attention to all the details was the perfect compliment to our time with you. But even more, we valued the warmth of your company, the amazing wealth of knowledge and experience you both were able to share with us, and of course, your slice of Africa that you generously shared with us. God has blessed you both richly and those blessings spilled over onto us, two very willing recipients!

The time passed way too quickly on this our 2nd trip. We look forward to future trips! Thanks for all you did to make our time here so special.

Michael’s fourth trip, Anna and my second. Great hunting, time in Kruger and time spent at the school. We felt right at home in the beautiful lodge.

Thanks to Phil and Kate for working so very hard to make this an enjoyable trip. Phil went the extra mile both literally and figuratively.

Time here went far too quickly. This has been the fulfillment of a lifetime dream and our lives have been enriched by the experience. The hunting went way beyond expectation and our imagination! We’ll be back in 2011 and again and again!

My experience hunting with Bosbok was truly amazing. Phil and Kate are running a wonderful outfit and I couldn’t have been happier with the high quality service. We were made to feel like part of the family with wonderful food, daily laundry service, and the personal attention of being the only group in camp. It doesn’t stop there though. The hunting was superb in all aspects. There is a wide variety of game and opportunities, and the PHs worked hard to ensure that I was successful. All of this was without sacrificing the challenge of the hunt.  In addition to the hunting, Kate and Phil were always willing to share their knowledge as wildlife biologists about not only the animals we were hunting, but also many other animals, birds and trees we encountered as well.  As my first African hunt, I couldn’t have asked for a better or safer experience. We already have plans in motion to go back and are all very excited.

Thank you for an amazing trip. We enjoyed every minute and can’t wait to come again.

Megan and Oytun AskinKissimmee, FL

Phil made this a most memorable experience, taking the time to work around someone in a wheelchair and with the young people. The food, the rooms, the hunting were fantastic. See you in a year or two with some others from Mexico.

Bravo Phil and Kate. As always, the best.
