Dear Hanna & Richard and Imbasa Team, I have been coming to Africa for hunting and holidays for over 25 years now, and I am already back on my 3rd visit in 3 years to Imbasa and it has as always been a great success! Your setup is truly spectacular with luxurious lodging, great food and wines, friendly staff and a very professional and well organized hunting. I am very much looking forward to coming back again soon, and I will recommend Imbasa to all my friends. Imbasa really is THE place to go to. Thanks again!

It has been a wonderful experience to see Africa at Imbasa Safari with you all. We can not imagine a better place to stay at. Everything has really been perfect, the staff, the service, the food (!), the trips, the horseback riding, everything. You have really taken good care of us during our stay at Imbasa Safari. I would like to thank my PH Evert, for all the hunting experiences I have gotten during this time. You always tried your best to make sure I got the most out of the hunt. The whole hunt was far beyond my expectations; you really helped me to get the finest animals for my trophies.

Thank you for an unforgettable stay at Imbasa! I arrived having very high anticipations on Imbasa and the hunting, and everything way exceeded my expectations. No one in our group wanted to leave Imbasa to go back home. We have had such a nice time with excellent food and wines, kind and serviceminded staff, SUPERB hunting, all very well organized with magical dinners under the stars and champagne in the sunset with endless views over Imbasa. We couldn’t have wished for a better time! This stay has left everlasting memories.

Bozorgnia, Brynell, Rekdal & Lindblom families (Sweden)
Thank you for five days here at Imbasa. We have been treated like kings and have had a lot of interesting fun hunting the different animals. We have 12 animals in “the bag” and most of them of a different sort. We like your professionalism about how we hunt, and will recommend many friends to come here for much excitement.
Hans-Eric & Eva Brodin and children (Sweden)
We have had the most fantastic week. Warren & Kate have looked after us superbly. The lodge is beautiful and the game reserve stunning. I would also like to make special mention of Anton. He helped me to take my first stalk in Africa and my first shot and animal. I wouldn’t have wished to have had anyone else by my side. He is an asset to Imbasa and has made my trip extra special. Thank you to everyone for an amazing trip.

Imbasa Safari gives true meaning to the words “Hakuna Matata”! Friendly people, good food and wildlife, what more could you want! Imbasa grows on you and becomes more than a safari, but a fantastic way of life. Thank you!
Harriet and Simon Galante (UK)
Thank you Richard and Hanna for creating such a magical place! I’m so glad that there are people like you on this earth. We have had a great stay here, and today Per ended his hunt with a gold medal Lechwe! Thank you also to Kate and Warren and the lovely staff.

Dear Richard and Hanna,
We had a most relaxing and wonderful time at Imbasa. We enjoyed it very much, a very exiting stay on your lovely farm in Africa. We will definitely recommend this and will absolutely come back to Imbasa.
Kathrin and Friedrich Hoyos
Finally we have been able to visit Imbasa! Even though we have only been here a short time, we have experienced so much; hunting, photo safari, horse riding, walking safari and a wonderful dinner out in the bush. This is a fantastic place, very beautiful and professional. You have a very good set up which we will gladly recommend!

Johan and Kathis Berntson (Sweden)
We have now been your guests three years in a row, following your most impressive development in building up a very professional hunting lodge in all aspects. Your touch for internal decorating, good food, showed in and around Imbasa and of course, very competent PH, trackers and skinners. We, Erik and myself have now had 3 days of very successful trophy hunting at Imbasa and two days driven hunting nearby. This has been another fantastic experience at Imbasa and we do hope to be back again soonest possible.
Knut and Erik Rosensvard (Sweden)
Thanks for these fantastic days with 106 animals shot by 6 people!! Super!!

Imbasa and South Africa has redefined hunting, friendship and nature for me. Thank you Richard and your great team behind this great adventure! Best wishes for the future!
Magnus Öfverberg (Sweden)
We shall miss the peace and quietness, the plethora of game, the good company, the kindness and being spoiled! A wedding anniversary to remember for ever, the best of hunting – I could go on! Thank you Warren and Kate for your expert attention and indeed friendship .
As “hanger-on” I have had a wonderful week, getting a head’s start on species recognition by studying the trophies on the dining room wall. Read several of the books and dipped into lots more. Loved the riding with Kate – the high spot after game watching was the sundowner look out anniversary dinner! Thanks so much for giving us a wonderful time.
Jane & Graham Godbeer (England)
Thanks you for a fantastic week. I have had a wonderful stay at Imbasa. Everything has been excellent, the food, the lodge and of course, the hunting. Special thanks to Warren who has been the best PH anyone could have!
Felix Ljunggren, May 2009
The most exciting and fun hunting I ever experienced! Accommodation, service and staff have been superb. Thanks, I hope to be back some day.
Fredrik Ljunggren, May 2009
What can I say, world class hunting as well as hospitality!
Gustaf Ljunggren, May 2009
You have redefined hunting for me! Walking on the red sand with the sun gazing on the back and viewing such magnificent animals is truly amazing! Thank you for the most memorable time!
Tomas Hagman (Sweden)
A world class package of brilliant hunting, excellent horse riding, super food and hospitality – all delivered with style and panache. You really made it the trip of a lifetime. Warren and Kate thank you both so much and your staff. The horse riding really made the trip for the girls.
Andrew and Oonagh McKeever (Ireland)
Dear Imbasa team,
…we have now spent five wonderful days at Imbasa and are very impressed by your good taste in building up this lodge – now being a perfect game farm for hunters and their families…
…The peak of our hunt was when we both shot one zebra each – what actually would have been called a ”double” – the distance between the zebras lying down was less than ten meters!
Imbasa has become an enjoyable, peaceful place in Africa. We are convinced that you will be doing well in your new country. We long to come back again!

All we could have ever hoped for – fantastic camp. Fantastic PH and wonderful hunting. A top rate trip. The horses were an excellent add on for Louise and gave her the opportunity for seeing game at really close quarters. It was meant to be a trip of a lifetime (for my 60th and Louise’s 50th) and it was!
Ian Smales (England)
A holiday of a lifetime – everything was fantastic – thank you so much! My memorable moment was seeing the Giraffe from horseback – I will never forget. Thank You,
Louise Smales (England)
Lovely to be back at Imbasa again, one year since last time. Same hospitality, excellent service and food. In addition a very professional staff. Bird hunting at a farm close to the river was a very nice experience and we would like to do again next time. One more nice thing this year was the lovely horses. To take a ride in the morning in this wonderful nature and see all the wild animals so close was fantastic. Many thanks to Kate and Warren, Ettienne (PH), Anita, Emily, Anton, Leon, George and the rest of the staff. We hope to see you soon again.

To Imbasa Safari
Our stay with you all at Imbasa was short but it was a wonderful experience, which we shall remember always. It is a great honor to have been your first honeymoon couple. Everything was beautiful and the food was great too. We shall come back with our friends and next time stay longer.
My first ‘blood’ in Africa! What better place to have done so? Thank you Mike for keeping the faith in me after early nerves! Take note, the first shot without my new wife present dropped a beast! Thank you all for making our stay memorable and we’ll be back.
Miles & Emily Pool, UK
Thanks to all at Imbasa Safari for giving us such a wonderful experience and stay – full of impression of you wonderful nature and people. We look forward to coming back with our children and friends – not least for hunting under your kind and professional guidance.
Sonja & Steen Nielsen, Denmark
A note to say thank you for the way we were treated by you and your staff at Imbasa. I found it a wonderful experience, even the violent thunder storm was an experience out of the ordinary. I do hope the new giraffe has settled in and found the female. You must tell it to keep its head down in a thunder storm. We have a lot of pictures to help keep our memories green until the next time.
I look forward to hearing that Imbasa Safari is going from strength to strength.
