Last week I received a personal email from a Mr. Workman asking me about South Africa.  He asked who would be a good safari operator to handle his first African Safari.

I sent him a list of the Dallas Safari Club Convention Exhibitors that deal with SA and offered that I had hunted with Limcroma Safaris two years ago with fantastic results.  I cc’ed Limcroma’s Melcom van Staden on my email to Mr. Workman.  Within 24 hours Mr. Workman and I received the following:

Dear Mr. Workman,

It’s always such a pleasure to start working with folks that are looking to do their first safari in Africa. There is a lot of planning and thought that goes into making the commitment to come half way around the world on safari and it’s wonderful to be apart of the process and seeing it all come together!

At Limcroma Safaris we specialize in family and couple safaris… We offer first class accommodations and we hunt some of the very best hunting areas South Africa has to offer.

We specialize in bow and rifle hunting, plains and dangerous game. There are numerous non-hunting activities that can be added as day trips or tours before or after your hunting expedition…

If you could supply me with some specifics I can supply you with some more detailed information regarding aspects that you might be interested in… I can then also give you references that can comment more accurately on the aspects that you are specifically interested in.

I look forward to hearing back from you…

My best always,

Melcom Van Staden – Limcroma Safaris
