Does Andrew McLaren Safaris have any Package Deal Offers?

As from 2005 Andrew McLaren Safaris offers an opportunity to hunt at what we consider to be very good rates as a package deal.

Special Offers Valid from March to September 2007

  1.  Mervilla 3 Trophies 6 Days Plains Game Hunt:

This deal starts by collecting client(s) at Bloemfontein Airport on day 0, i.e. the day before the actual hunting starts, for transportation to Andrew McLaren Safarisí base of operation at the farm Mervilla. Clients to be accommodated in a private thatched lodge with bath, hot & cold running water and flush toilet. Hunting will be conducted on Andrew McLaren Safaris concessions in the immediate vicinity of Mervilla, all of which are within less than an hour drive to the actual hunting venue. Full board and lodging with two hearty meals and a light picnic style lunch, including moderate amounts of beer, table wine and sundowners as well as laundry service is provided.

 

Trophies offered are:

 black wildebeest + blesbok + springbok

 

In every instance the hunter, with the help of the Professional Hunter, may select to shoot from the herd, other than the dominant breeding herd bull, the biggest trophy they can obtain at the concession on which they are hunting. Trophy quality to any specific record book qualification standard is not guaranteed, but the concessions are all managed and very good specimens are taken there regularly.

 

If the hunter fills his trophy quota before the 6 daysí hunting is over he/she may elect to either hunt for additional, or better quality, trophy species at the standard trophy cost, or take part in limited varminting and wing shooting which will be arranged at no additional cost.

 

At the end of the hunt, i.e. after 6 full hunting days the client will be returned to Bloemfontein Airport on the 7th day after the day of his/her arrival. Taxidermy and shipping costs for trophies are NOT included. After the hunt all marked and field-prepared trophies will be delivered to Messrs. Oasis Tanning of Krugersdorp with the clients taxidermy instructions for either Dip-and-Ship or completion of taxidermy before dispatch to a shipping company.

 

Although the price list value of this hunt is $ 4100, the offered Package Price is only $ 2500. To take up the package a booking confirmation deposit of $ 1000  is to be paid as soon as possible, but preferably at least 90 days before the onset of the hunt, by electronic bank transfer. The remaining $ 1500 of the full package cost of $ 2500, must be paid before the start of the hunt. In the very unlikely event of a client not managing to get a worthy example of all three species, the hunter will be refunded at the full trophy fee cost for the species not collected.

 

If two or more hunters wish to share the experience, all hunting will be on a 2x1 basis, i.e. 2 clients for each Professional Hunter.

 

Package valid for all dates starting the hunt from 1 March until 25 April 2007, and again from 23 August to 30 September 2007.
