Howard Ballantyne and his sons, Glen and Charles, have grown up in the bush and have extensive knowledge about the animals they hunt.  They will provide you with the hunt of a lifetime. A reputable taxidermist has been doing work for Ballantynes for 15 years.  We deliver to the taxidermist, who liases directly with the client thereafter.  The best time for a safari in the Eastern Cape is between April and August. Any later and the weather becomes too hot.  Clients are accommodated in the ranch home.  Traditional cuisine is served and laundry is done daily.  Enjoy sundowners in the Trophy Room with Howard and his family.
