Over the past 8 years Bushmans Quiver has been fortunate in establishing a solid, valued relationship with some of the best, most highly-qualified individuals, and businesses in the safari industry. Our growth has been enhanced by these associations, and we have built a solid reputation for the Bushnmans Quiver brand that is well-respected on the African Continent and abroad. We are happy and excited to announce that I am joining hands with two of my friends in the safari industry, Phillip Mostert and Freddie Oosterhuis of Hunting Legends International, to form a new partnership: HUNTING LEGENDS AFRICA. This merger will combine the allied strengths of both companies allowing us to improve our service and commitment to our client base and set the stage for an even larger global footprint within the safari industry.
By combining our knowledge, skills and experience HUNTING LEGENDS AFRICA, as well as our client base will benefit from a total of 65 years of solid experience in the safari industry. I will be the Principal Outfitter and Managing Director of Hunting Legends Africa and will be personally committed to guiding this merger. I am very pleased also to announce that my professional staff from Bushmans Quiver will be making the transition with me and we will gain additional experienced field staff from Hunting Legends International. We will be effecting the completion of this merger over the next few months as we consolidate our businesses, modify our websites (www.bushmansquiver.com and www.huntinglegends.com), etc.
Some of the exciting changes I can hardly wait to share with you is a new base lodge located in Thabazimbi, Limpopo Province, South Africa. This is not that far from our former base camp in Modimolle; many of you have passed through Thabazimbi from Modimolle on your way to some of our hunting concessions. The transport time from Johannesburg International Airport is only about 30 minutes longer. More importantly, our inventory of hunting concessions, and their average size, will increase dramatically. The density and variety of both huntable and non-huntable animals is solidly improved through this merger. You will truly be amazed, as well, at the diversity of terrain appearing within these concessions.
For those of you have already booked your 2015 safari under the Bushmans Quiver name, or have initiated your safari planning with Bushmans Quiver, we will deliver the same solid safari experience and personal commitment to your expectations and satisfaction as we have always been known for. If there are any changes to your experience at all it will be the addition of the enhancements I have already cited above. When you complete your safari with us your account balance will be settled through Hunting Legends Africa ledger sheets. In the meantime, you may continue to communicate with me and established members of the Bushmans Quiver staff through the email addresses that are familiar to you.
For those of you still anticipating a quality African Safari we welcome you to our new Hunting Legends Africa family and invite you to come share the wildness, excitement, and adrenaline that hunting our expanded concessions are sure to offer you.
Please feel free to contact me (stephan @ huntinglegends.com) to provide you the most up-to-date information on our merger, as well as to complete your safari planning.
Finally, I know all of you will be excited to see our expanded show list for 2015 (see below). Please come visit us at one of these popular venues. It will mean so much to us to see old friends as well as to meet new ones. I am confident that when you do, and see what we have new to offer, that you will be as excited about future hunting experiences with us as we are to offer them to you.
