  Our Makhulu Song 

Jan Edwards came to visit us in 2012 and on one of the hunting days she decided not to come out with us but instead to stay at the camp and write a song about and for Makhulu. The song appropriately named "Makulu Cowboys". Jan thank you very much for this truly unique and wonderful song! You can be proud of yourself, we certainly are! Please click on the play button to listen to the song.

What a fantastic trip we had at Makhulu. This was the sixth trip to Africa for Wayne and I and I believe it was the very best yet. Your facility is just beautiful, the staff so accommodating, food couldn't have been better and we just loved everything about the service. You truly do have top notch business.

Henk, you sure know how to treat an old lady. I couldn't have been more comfortable. Truly enjoyed the roar of the lions at night and seeing all of them during the day. Your book "Life on the Line" about Des and Ros Sinclair went home with Diane and she will bring it to Wayne when she finishes it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I know she will too. What terrific memories we all have of our trip and the friendship we developed with all of you. We will never forget the wonderful experience you provided.

Our love to all of you,
~ Wayne & Nancy ~

Thanks for the wonderful trip. I'm sure we have developed a lasting relationship with all of you. Please call us when you come to the USA so we may show you the same hospitality you showed us. PS Jan says this was the best trip she has ever been on.

This trip to Africa was my first... hopefully not the last!! I had a wonderful time and hate to leave but I know we will return. I was so inspired I wrote the song "Makhulu cowboys". I will send it to you as soon as I can get it recorded. Much love to all of you. I'll miss you and this magical place especially the lions

Marike, Henk, Heinrich, Angelic, Neils, Gert, Sarie and Families

Today is 4th of July our Independence day for America. There will be lots of fireworks, barbeque's, and socializing. I have about 20 people coming over and will enjoy showing them the videos and pictures we have taken at your wonderful Makhulu Lodge. I have already talked to 4 people about your services who might be interested in going out there with their families. I will continue to work on them and when they are committed I will let you know.

I will never forget the enjoyment of my hunt with Henk, Jeff, and Ken in the Mountains and how much work it was to get close to the klipspringers. It goes down as my best hunting experience ever. Next time we will get the Klipspringer and have a Castle to Celebrate.

I will also never forget my hunt with Heinrich, Ken and Jeff and the 100 meters that I crawled on my stomach to get a shot at a springbok that didn´t even know we were there. That was just awesome to experience with my friends. Thank you for that experience Heinrich! I am sure Jeff and Ken will tell the story much differently but I didn't see them crawling on their stomachs with Heindrich and I

Neils, Thank you so much for the experience feeding the lions, I cannot wait for my daughter to someday experience such an amazing thing. What you do every single day is truly amazing to the rest of us. My Daughter loves the Videos and pictures of it.

Tou are all so much appreciated, Thank you all for your attention to detail in all of the accommodations and what you did for all of us, we look forward to the next trip to Makhulu Lodge.

Please let everyone know how much they are appreciated!

When you come here to the states we have to work on getting my wife committed to coming over also. Marike, keep up the great work of Marketing such a wonderful  place and Team.

~ Regards John ~

We would like to thank everyone for an amazing time! Cannot wait to come back and bring the rest of the family. You have a great lodge and wonderful animals. The food was awesome. This was a once in a lifetime experience!!! Love Ashley and Chris. P.S You come see us soon!!!

Thank you for some of the best days of my life! Yeehaw!
~ Chris & Ashley ~

We cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful experience, you have such a wonderful family and we cannot thank you enough for making us feel so much a part of it. We will definitely be back. Thank you for the special times.
~ Dustin and Lisa ~

This experience exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed spending time here with great friends and making many new ones. We were treated like family. The food was great and all of the people where very hospitable. Heinrich and Uncle Niels did an awesome job! We are so blessed to have this experience and memories. Thank you!

Much, much more than expected in family, friends, food and fun! Living the Lifestyle of the Vorster family was a gift of a lifetime. The hunting and exploring was exceptional.
~ Thank you, Rick ~

I have hunted and fished in many places but feeling like one of the family in a few days is even better than the great food, great hunting, and great accommodation. It is a trip I will always remember and hope to make again as soon as possible. Thanks for all the great memories.
~ George ~

Very very Nice place! I will come back someday. Thank you for very good hunting photograph, and the cooks were Outstanding.
