From the outfitter

To everybody that sent me a testimonial after hunting with us - thank you so much for the kind words and commendations, I really appreciate it and hope to see you all back here someday soon. Just like you enjoyed your trip and your hunt, we've enjoyed it with you - every hunt is unique, remembered and cherished! The following testimonials are from some of our clients that have hunted with us recently. Please feel free to contact them if you have any questions - Isan.

Marc Perkins - Cartersville, GA

"I took my 14 year old son Daniel hunting with Isan and we had more fun than I think
a teenage boy and a 48 year old man could have. The entire experience was one of those
magical moments in life that are 100% pure memories and we had a moment that lasted
10 days. This has made more of a difference in my son's and mine relationship than can
be communicated with words. It has to be experienced to be understood. Isan and his
staff took care of us so that here was never time to worry about anything. We had and
absolute blast. I would rate his as the best hunt that I have ever been on anywhere.
His operation exceeded my expectations in every area (especially trophy size). Please
feel free to contact me with any questions you might have."

Lee Lancaster - Hoschton, GA

"Our trips to Eulalie have been truly incredible experiences. The accommodations and
gracious hospitality afforded to us during our stays by Isan, Chantel, and the entire
Eulalie staff has always been second to none. Our two previous trips to Eulalie have
convinced me that the trophy quality of the animals on the concessions that Isan and
his clients hunt is as good as any and probably better than most. The combination of
Isan's knowledge of the animals he hunts and his patience and determination to connect
us with true trophy class animals of the species we chose to hunt made for an amazing
and unforgettable African experience. It is one that I would highly recommend to the
novice or the seasoned hunter alike. We have already booked our third trip to Eulalie
and can't wait to get back! Some of our hunting friends have asked us why, with all of
the many outfitters and safari companies out there today, do we keep returning to Eulalie?
In my humble opinion, the answer to that question is really quite simple. When you have
hunted with the best, why bother with the rest!? Thanks, Isan!"

James McClendon - Bowdon, GA

"I have made two trips to Eulalie and found the hunting to be unbelievable, with so many
animals everywhere, and the professionalism of the staff cannot be beat anywhere. This is
only a part of the most wonderful experience of a lifetime. Then there is the lodge and
the food which cannot be beat anywhere at any price. I truly feel you become part of
this family, can't wait to get back in 2010. I have so far collected some amazing trophies
and will add to them this year."

Scott Williams - Auburn, AL

"Hi! My name is Scott Williams and I live in Auburn, Al. The reason I am writing this
is to try and keep hunters from making the same mistake I made in trying to fulfill
my hunting dreams. I have been traveling to Africa on Safari trips since early 2000
trying to fill my trophy room with animals taken with Bow and Arrow and was unsuccessful.
Then in 2005 I met a young man in Birmingham, Al. named Isan van Zyl, who owns Eulalie
Hunting Safaris. I booked for September of that year when I arrived it was unusual
rainy - it rained 7 out of 10 days - but I still brought home 9 trophies. This is how
patient and determined Isan is for making your dreams become reality. I have been back
to Eulalie now 4 trips ... the last I took my whole family of six, 4 where hunters and
everyone bagged their trophies. I guess what I am trying to tell you is ... if you are
undecided on where to go for a safari this should help. If you don't like to be treated
as if you were at home?, if you don't like good food?, if you don't like hunting trophy
animals?, if you don't like to be around people with integrity and that are honest ... you
definitely don't want to go to Eulalie. BUT, if you do please get in touch with Isan at
Eulalie Hunting Safaris, or give me a call."

Hugh McBride - Lumber City, GA

"My visit to Eulalie Hunting Safaris was a wonderful hunting adventure that all hunters should
experience in their lifetime. World-class game was seen on a daily basis. Each of the species
I took met the qualifications for the Safari Club International Record Book. The guides work
very hard to make sure you are able to obtain true trophy quality animals. Let me warn you
that once you have been, it could become habit forming. My wife also went and we found the
host family to be very gracious. They made us feel at home immediately upon arrival. The food
was delicious and the accommodations were great! I can't wait to go again."

Scott Bryson MD - Thomasville, NC

"I have been on 4 trips with Isan at Eulalie Hunting Safaris. Each trip has been
Great!  A person will be hard pressed to find a better outfitter and guide than
Isan. There are lots of higher priced outfitters but not better. I have been on 2
trips with my wife and kids. They had a wonderful time. There is a lot to do and
see other than the fantastic hunting. The game is plentiful and Isan and his staff
work hard to present the hunter with shots at true trophy quality animals. The
accommodations are very nice and the service is excellent. I look forward to my
next adventure at Eulalie. "

Greg Bonecutter - Dover, TN

"Hello Isan. Just wanted to let you know how much my clients and I enjoyed hunting at Eulalie's
hunting grounds. You have great people, the accommodations and meals were super and the
non-hunters who joined their mates loved the solitude and peace they found at your lodge. Not to
mention the animals - fantastic trophies, far better than we expected to find in this day and time.
I have watched many safaris on videos and TV and have never seen on any of them the quality of
animals we took with you at Eulalie Hunting Safaris. I've been in the hunting business most of the
last 35 years and would not hesitate to give your outfit a big thumbs up for anyone who wants to
take a REAL African trophy. By making my hunt an extended 14 day hunt, it gave us the time to wait
for the quality animals I wanted to take, of course all of them with a bow. That's another thing
that I want to praise Eulalie on also, you yourself is a bow hunter so you know how to set your
bow hunting clients up to take that trophy of a lifetime. I guarantee you my friend if I was able,
I would be sitting on the veranda watching animals, instead of sitting in my office writing about it.
Anyone planning on that South Africa hunt should give your outfit a try, and truthfully, EVERYONE
needs to experience Africa at least once in their life. If anyone would like to contact me for a
reference, feel free to give them my coordinates. Wishing you and your growing family the very best,
give the wife and the babies a kiss for me, and tell my little one Oupaw says hi. Again old scout,
thank you for the best hunt of my life, I hope to do it again before my time on earth is done.
Regards from Tennessee."

Johnnie Brown - Ayden, NC

"I have always wanted to hunt Big Game in Africa as long as I've able to pick up a gun.
In May of 2008, I contacted a Dr. friend of mine by the name of Scott Bryson of N.C.
He informed me of a great guide in South Africa whose name is Isan van Zyl of Eulalie
Hunting Safaris. He told me the long and short of his hunt! This sounded like something
I would be interested in. I contacted Isan and booked a 2 week hunt for Aug-Sept 2008.
The rest is history. My wife, Debbie, and I have hunted Moose, Bear, Mountain Lion, Elk,
Whitetail Deer and Mule Deer, but hunting with Isan was the hunt of a lifetime. Most
guides once they get your money (up front) you were just another number and could care
less if you tagged out on trophy animal. Not with Isan, you get your trophy then he gets
his money. This is the way it should be!! If you do not get your trophy then all you pay
for is room and board, which we say, that alone would be worth the trip. We killed 8 plains
game animals and a female and male Lion, I'm sure he'll show you the pictures! We are also
planning an Elephant, Buffalo and Leopard hunt soon! I hope this will answer all your
questions. Feel free to contact us in North Carolina."

Dennis DeVore - Maquoketa, IA

"I am not sure words can describe the Africa experience. I was a bit apprehensive about going
to South Africa on my own, this was short lived after arriving and meeting Isan face to face
and spending the next week hunting, scouting and sightseeing with him, I could not have asked
for any better guide/tour guide, his knowledge of the animals and area is incredible. We passed
on several animals which I thought were good trophy size but he takes pride in only harvesting
the true trophy, that is why these animals are available (they can't get trophy size if you don't
let them). The accommodations and food were great, an added bonus is the ability to get to know
Isan, his wife and children. You may come a stranger but will leave a friend. Thanks Isan, Chantel,
Chane' and Aiden for making my stay with you one I will never forget and will cherish forever."

Lynn Saintsing - Thomasville, NC

"Isan, just wanted to let you know we had the time of our life experience. The
accommodations were great, the food was wonderful and your guiding was beyond
compare. I've been big game hunting for 30 years plus in the USA & Canada and
your operation is far the best. Thanks again and I would highly recommend you
to anyone!"

Arnold Kanoy - Thomasville , NC

"Our time at Eulalie was all that we had dreamed of and more! The hunting was unbelievable with a wide variety of game accessible to us with the best guide we have ever met! The day trips for the non-hunters were fantastic with everyone enjoying every minute. This trip is so different from anything we had ever done before and it was totally amazing. The hospitality of the family, the great food, the relaxed atmosphere, the caliber of the hunt and the guides, the beauty of the country... all of this must be experienced to be believed. We will definitely do our best to return as often as we can."

Mike Brunson - Southside, AL

"This was my first African hunting trip and Isan and his family went beyond means
to make my wife and I comfortable. The hunting was outstanding with Isan being an
exceptional guide. He made sure I took quality animals and provided an enjoyable
experience. The accommodations were first class and the food was outstanding. Isan
and his lovely wife, Chantel, made us feel like family. If you want a first class
hunting experience with plentiful game and a highly qualified guide, you can't do
better that Isan at Eulalie Hunting Safaris."- Mike  Brunson

"Isan and his family made me, a non-hunter, feel most welcome. I was able to get
the most fantastic photos of many types of animals. I was also able to take several
day trips and some shopping. Hospitality was fantastic as his staff was wonderful.
I am looking forward to a return trip in the future."- Norma Brunson

Bob Krueger - Hawkinsville,GA

"Africa was always a dream of mine and Eulalie made that dream come true for me. I made two visits and enjoyed both trips immensely. I marveled at the various animals that I had only seen in magazines were a part of the landscape. The highlight of both trips was a huge kudu, it was almost 59 inches and a monster. I will never forget that hunt. Isan put together a great hunt. The lodge and facilities were excellent, the food marvelous, and I cannot say enough about the South African wines. I'm not sure when, but I'm going back."

Pat McGue - WV

"My name is Patrick McGue and as you can see by my e-mail name (kudumcgoo) Eulalie
Hunting Safaris had a most profound impact on my life, I have had the privilege of
going on twenty two guided hunting trips but none of the others have come close to
my trip with Eulalie. Abundance of game was spectacular, care for all our needs was
exceptional, and the knowledge of Isan and his staff were the best I have encountered.
Everything about Eulalie is Top Notch. Sincerely, Patrick E. McGue."

Chad Bazzell - Bowling Green, TN

"Isan and Chantel, I wanted to say ‘thank you' for a memorable hunting trip with Eulalie
Hunting Safaris. From the knowledge of Isan and his staff, Chantel's excellent cooking,
and the comforts of a beautiful lodge, it was truly a trip of a lifetime. A home away from
home. Most important, I made friends for life. I hope to visit again soon."

Jamie Bergin MD - Bowling Green, TN

"Not knowing what to expect, the experience was beyond expectations. I bow-hunted
nine days and shot 9 animals. Had the best time hunting a steenbuck - which I never
got! My guide Herman made all the difference. First time I spot & stalked game thanks
to Herman. Will be back!"

Brandt Williams - Greensboro, NC

"Our African Safari was truly an adventure of a lifetime. Your hospitality, accommodations and
cuisine were five star. Not only was the game extremely abundant, 3 of the 4 animals I harvested
are now in the SCI Record Book. You encouraged and guided my son, Tyler on his first ever hunt,
with him harvesting his first trophy animal and for that I will be eternally grateful. Tyler and
I look forward to a return trip in the near future."

Jimmy Samia - Adams, MA

"Hi Isan, I just wanted to thank you for the honesty you displayed in refunding me
the price of a Kudu bull. Not many outfitters would have displayed the integrity that
you did. The kudu that was harvested several months later by another hunter after I
had made a non-fatal shot on, it could easily have been kept a secret from me and, you
could have kept the trophy fee for that bull I had paid you. Once again, thanks you for
your honesty and I hope that one day I will be able to return and hunt with you."

Josh Mullins - Chapmanville, WV

"Our experience at Eulalie was a trip unlike any other. We had the awesome opportunity
to see and experience the wildlife and nature of Africa. Every detail from viewing to
harvesting the animals was a memorable experience. The lodging and dining was great.
We really felt like we were part of the family our week there. While the men hunted,
the women went to a small town and made jewelry and ate at a local restaurant with Chantel.
We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to hunting with Isan again in the future!"

Mark Hall - Cullman, AL

"My son and I hunted with Isan and his family in April of 2004. We enjoyed out time
there as much as any hunt we have ever experienced. The hunting, accommodations,
food etc. were all first class. They really treated us like family. We plan to
return as soon as possible. Good hunting from the Hall family."

"I am Gerry Therrien from Maine, U.S.A., and I have hunted with Eulalie Hunting
Safaris. I was extremely satisfied and successful. Myself and my PH had a great time.
Their Professional Hunters want you to get a real trophy. You can hunt any method you
want - ambush, spot and stalk, whatever. When you get back to the lodge they take good
care of you. The food is great too. Everything was so good I'm going back this year! "
