NewsWe are delighted to welcome Fritz Rabe to Melorani as our new and very experienced PH. Fritz has grown up in the Kruger Park and other wild places in Africa and is mad about bow hunting too. He has guided clients on elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard hunts. He has spent many seasons guiding and hunting in coutries like Zambia, CAR, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. With Fritz comes a new dimension to our possible future offerings as he still has contacts in the best areas in Africa for bow hunters. Some good news for those still wanting sable. We are reducing our prices to $7500 for all sable bulls under 40 inches. Our sable herd has bred so well we now have many surplus bulls. Most of these bulls are mature and in the 36 inch class and make a great trophy. Exceptional bulls of over 40 inches will remain at our normal price. It hurts me to tell you that we have sold all our rhino. They were rare and wonderful docile animals to have on Melorani. How many experienced the rhino at close quarters making the stay more memorable? Unfortunately, the rhino poaching problem in SA is out of control and after we had an attempt on our rhino, we decided it was better to sell them than to lose them. They are now on a nearby property under 24 hour monitoring, so we hope they never get poached. We now have a spa for the ladies right on our doorstep. "Elsies Spa" belongs to our neighbour and offer a menu of delights for the girls, from massages, manicures and pedicure, haircuts, waxings and more. Its been a great addition to our offerings and all the 2012 ladies raved about it. Some spent an entire day there and other returned for seconds!! Our 2012 season is now done and dusted and it was an excellent one! Conditions were good and all our clients did better than even we expected. Excellent trophies of all species were taken once again. I cannot single out any hunt as being the best, they were all most enjoyable for me as an outfitter too. A big thankyou to you all who made the season so much fun, you are much appreciated by all of us on Melorani. Some pics below, but look at the hunt reports for more! Bossie did a fine job as PH and now also keeps the Melorani Facebook page updated. Some of us old dogs not so good with technology but have a look and tell us if you like? The good news for those coming next year is that we have reduced our sable price from $10000 to $7500. Our sable population has grown so well that the bulls are now beginning to fight and damage and even kill each other. We still have openings for 2013 and have opened bookings for 2014.
