"Kalahari Safari was an amazing Father/Son trip!
The ranch is beautiful with an abundant amount of African wildlife. Our accommodations were first class from the luxurious and well-appointed house to the over the top service received from the staff. The food is in a completely different category – insanely delicious…organic ingredients and lots of game! Daily afternoon plunges in the pool were a refreshing treat in the middle of a hot afternoon.
Our hunts were filled with adventure and the “thrill of the chase” with the reward of numerous trophies between both of us. The near dusk unexpected Kudu showing resulted in a great kill by my son as well as my multi-hour morning hunt for a Zebra, most certainly stand out. Janneman’ s experience as a professional hunter was evident during every hunt! All of that said, the most cherished memories will be the quality time spent between a father & son talking about life, what truly matters, and the adventure that awaits him as he heads out to college and beyond…..
Thank you to my friend Janneman for creating this venue to deepen relationships in God’s creation!"

Janneman and Aldalene,
"Kalahari Safari was the most amazing adventure we have ever been on! The hunting and respect for the animals was premier. We were expecting a nice hunt. What we found was so much more! The ranch is beautiful with breathtaking views in every direction. The lodge is 5 star. Every meal was over the top in flavor and presentation, only to be matched by the feeling of being with good friends around the table.
Each day we woke with excitement about what we would see on our treks. We looked forward to each meal with anticipation to see what gourmet extravaganza Aldalene had prepared for us. This is truly a place you could go as a food destination alone! The ladies that came for our Spa day were amazing as well. We had wonderful massages and felt revived after many miles of walking on our days there. Janneman and Aldalene, along with every person on the staff, treated us with great kindness and warmth.
We showed up as strangers and felt we left as good friends! We are already looking at dates to book again and bring more friends to experience this piece of Africa that is so exceptionally welcoming at Kalahari Safari!"
Janneman and Aldalene,
"I want to say that I throughly enjoyed my hunt with Kalahari Safari. It met all my expectations in fulfilling my dream to hunt in Africa. Because of your friendliness and hospitality I felt as though I was in a familiar place rather than a strange place on the other side of there world. The food was fantastic and always more than enough. Thank you so much in helping make my dream hunt to be all that I could have imagined.
My best regards to you both."

"I am delighted to tell you about Jannaman and Aldalene. My wife, Suzanne, and I spent a great week with them the year before last. It was my third trip to Africa and it remains the overall best. I am going hunting with them again in April - this time with three friends.I was introduced to Kalahari by a good friend who took his wife, along with another husband and wife couple. I have been lucky and have hunted several times overseas - South Africa, Namibia with Kalahari, Australia, New Zealand and Spain. The Brands gave us the most memorable and enjoyable of all those trips - no exceptions.The hunting will be great, the food will be fabulous, the scenery breathtaking, and you and your wife will bring back a bucket load of good memories. Interestingly Kalahari is also a very good choice financially. Of all my trips, Kalahari is the one where I didn’t suffer a little “sticker shock” when the trip was over. We travel a bunch, not just to hunt, and I do and have always done a lot of homework before committing. Kalahari’s prices are far better than average - and - the animals you take will be exceptional. (he has some of the best Gemsbok you will ever see - and he has the best Kudu prices in Africa!)
Suzanne and I felt like and were treated like family. You will take some animals of which you will be very proud, both in quality and from the conduct of the hunt. You and your wife will be pampered and you will love it.
You cannot and will not find a better family to hunt with - period.
Commit, go and enjoy.

"The words 'top-notch' and 'world class' are bandied about so much that they have lost their impact, so we won't use them for the great operation that Janneman and Aldalene run in Namibia. We will simply say that if you want to hunt high quality game with a high quality person, Janneman will exceed your expectations. If great food, lodging and comfort are important, Aldalene will provide some of the best food you will ever eat in a wonderful setting. Truly a great experience we will never forget."

"We simply could not have chosen a better lodge / outfitter for our first African safari. Janneman, Aldalene and their wonderful family are fantastic hosts. The accommodations and food is exceptional. Aldalene is a wonderful cook and Janneman is a PH of the highest order. The hunting and trophy quality is outstanding. Our trip to Kalahari Safari was absolutely a trip of a lifetime for our family and we can't wait to return."

"The hunting was amazing, all the animals are very wild and Janneman is a great professional hunter. We have had some previous hunting experiences in Africa and I can say without a doubt that Janneman is one of the best professional hunters I've ever met."
