"Patrick. Thank you for a wonderful hunt. I spent a lot of time deciding whether to hunt Lion up in Zim. or in South Africa. I heard a lot of miss-information about South African Lions being drugged and canned. At least in your case that could not be farther from the truth. Your professionalism and integrity eased my concerns. My hunt was better than what I had dreamed. My Lion was healthy and active , and the charge ruled out any idea of him being lethargic. This was my 18th hunt in Africa both Zimbabwe and South Africa. This hunt ranks as one of the top hunts I have had. My Lion was huge and his mane spectacular. I can say I made the right choice in selecting Mugaba Safaris for my Lion. Many thanks. Bob Schofield, USA. PS. The helicopter flight was wonderful."
