“Hunting areas was great. Staff exceptional, Animal quality was superb. Second safari concession. This place was awesome. Great animal quality and numbers. Food, accommodation and staff was excellent. Best safari area I’ve been to.
PH Nicus; Ive been on safari 5 times now in Africa. Nicus is by far the best PH I had. 
Jannie Otto Safaris; I can highly recommend Jannie Otto and his staff. Jannie worked hard to see that all details of our safari were completed and taking care off.”

Aaron Wilson;
“Had a wonderful experience.  My PH, Alex, was a very nice and positive young man. His knowledge of the different plants and wildlife was amazing. He has a tremendous passion and enthusiasm, which I really enjoyed and hope to hunt with him again one day.
Staff and accommodation at both safari areas were outstanding. Food and beverages were tasty and plentiful. Hunting was good with plenty of of game. Second area I particularly liked the openers of the terrain and the incredible number of different herds of animals.
I definitely will recommend all my hunting friends to JANNIE OTTO SAFARIS.”

Weston Gleave and Austin Gleave

Weston Gleave;
“ Top notch operation. I will hunt here again one day! Extremely pleased at PH’s ability to gage trophy quality. Both Mark, John , Eaun, CJ, Martinez and Rykie were all extremely accommodating.  Eaun’s cooking is worth coming back for alone!! I appreciate the work that’s gone into piecing together such larche parcels of land. This property is a joy to hunt, especially with PH Mark.”

Austin Gleave;
“ I have been to Africa 6 times and this has by far been one of the best experiences. The camp and all the staff were state of the art. Truly felt like family here and that every one was taking care off.  Willem is a PRO chef and took excellent care for the camp. Mark is one of the best PH”s I have worked with. I have never hiked this much on safari and it was incredible to do that and stalked game with Mark. Will definitely booked another hunt with Jannie Otto Safaris to hunt with Mark again!”

“ Accommodation and amenisties, food were excellent. Trophies were world class.  Bushbuck hunting was amazing. Absolutely the best hunting trip i avere had been on. Mark is the best PH that you will ever met. he went out of his way to make sure that I was safe and when it was time for me to shoot, i was in the right posission to take the shot. Excellent skinner, trackers and staff were there. Host were gracious and the food was “gourmet-the best”. Please understand that all hunters should put their trust in Jannie Otto Safaris, and leave their “egos” at home, it will be there when you return.”

Full of energy, jokes and also had a good taste for music.There was a bond formed with Nicus right from the start.  Great Example for my boys and his humour is infectious with all of us. we really enjoyed the experience of this trip and hope to be back one day.
Really enjoyed PH Alex. his knowledge of the area and the animals has allowed us to connect with the beautiful country. Alex friendliness, his outgoing going nature and his patience and perseverance with guiding my son. Could not asked for someone better. Thanks Alex! “

John Wilkerson

John Wilkerson  My experience could not have been better. I hunted with PH Mark in 2015, and was very glad to had him as my PH again.Hunted three different areas. All areas had exceptional animals/game. The lodges all were unique but offered the same  gracious services. The food at all was delicious. I enjoyed having the change to sample the various game meats. I am looking forward to my next adventure with Jannie Otto Safaris.”

Craig Sartin

Craig Sartin  “ I had a great time. The superb hunting was matched by the staff. The facility was very nice and all staff were super nice! The quality and number of animals was outstanding. All the PH’s in camp were super nice and supporting. My PH Chris was super. We had a great time.I will highly recommend JANNIE OTTO SAFARIS to anybody that wish to come to South Africa”

Ted & Danna Kohleffel

“ We hunted South Africa before but never had any experience like we did this time!. PH Mark made it his job to see that we did everything on this trip that we wanted. Did not matter if we were in the lodge or out hunting. PH Mark is a gentleman at all times and a credit to the profession and Jannie Otto Safaris.
