Enrique De Leyva (Snr), Enrique De Leyva (Jnr)  hunting experience

Overall I must say that we enjoyed enormously our hunt in Namwala and that I found it of high quality in a number of aspects and hence highly recommendable. Management and hunting staff were kind and professional. Concession owner took an intense day-to-day interest in ensuring that hunting and lodge experience was of top quality. He knows the concession extremely well and is able to ensure a high success rate in terms of desired hunting experiences. In our case, to 100% satisfaction vis a vis our objectives. I highly recommended this place and management as a differential hunting experience in Africa. I enjoyed it enormously.
