|Elk Hunting Ranch, Silvertine Wildlife Co.||
Welcome to Jakavula
I (Steve Rahn) have just returned from my second safari with my good friend Theo in South Africa. Theo has told me he is wanting to do one hunt each month (March - August) and I told him I would do my best to assist him in finding some customers.
If an African Safari has ever been on your bucket list, look no further, Theo is your man. Professional top nothch guide, exceptional service, and unbelivable value compared to North America. This is a hunt EVERY hunter should do at least Once in their lifetime. (I told myself that as well the first time, Africa Safari is addicting)
Below is a write up on Theo's operation and his trophy Fees. I believe you will find his prices very reasonable for the quality a trophies and services he offers. Theo is not a Full time outfitter, but a Cattle rancher, and only takes a handful of guests each year on his home ranch of over 20,000 acers, and he has other ranches he hunts on as well. It's this networking of ranches that ensures the highest quality trophies and cull hunting available. Its this small personalized touch to his operation that I like, nd you will feel (as I do), hunting with Theo is like hunting with a brother. Pllus you will find his prices are unbeatable for the quality trophies you harvest!

Accomodations are 4 star, and unreal. Comfortable single or double rooms are available, and guests will be well taken care of! The meals and accomodations will form one of the highlights of your safari. A selection of South African wines or beers will also be served.
