Wikkie @ Wildheim Safari´s
It is my great pleasure to have been able to hunt in October 2007 with Wildheim
Safaris. The hunting was everything we had hoped it would be and your
facilities and hospitality were perfect! We were particularly impressed with
your hand made figured, hard wood furniture and fixtures, never have I seen
any better! Your lodge and cabins are absolutely, “classic desert architecture“,
where the concrete walls block out, acting as “heat sinks“ to moderate the
daytime temperatures and then re–use that heat to dampen the cool night–time
desert air. Most efficient, say I!
You told me, you had made your hunting vehicle from “SCRATCH“ and I must say
there isn´t a more usable one in all of Africa, or the world for that matter!
It is the most well appointed shooting STAGE, as they used to say, in the old
days, that I can even imagine!
I was very impressed with the quality and variety of game that seemed to be in
“prime condition“, even though this was the END of winter. Your wind–mills,
supplying the water in this very dry landscape must seem to your animals to
be “like manna from heaven“.
I was able to take with your guidance, the four animals I came to Africa for.
Next time I want to have a Blackface Impala, a Kudu and an Eland plus another
Springbok, and maybe a Steenbok. My Kalahari Gemsbok Oryx, Black Wildebeest,
and the Springer are all superb, but my favorite may well be the Red
Hartebeest. They are so foolish looking, that they are BEAUTIFUL!
Next time I might have another for Euro mounts. I certainly appreciate
you finding me the best, most attractive Hartebeest of the bunch!
I was amazed to see your Capital City, a most modern Citadel, and a true
PALMIRA! It was a wonderful place to visit and shop. Your Namibian shopping
centers are as modern as any in ST. LOUIS.
Looking forward to seeing you at the SCI SHOW in RENO, with love Neil Keen,
