After bird shooting several times over the last 20 years with Clayton’s father, Trevor, we looked forward to more of the same with Umdende – and we were not disappointed.We brought along English friends who had not experienced bird shooting in Africa before and they were very impressed and very, very happy. We stayed all week at the Lodge, and Clayton and Garth presented us with a wide range of feathered game – duck, francolin, dove, guinea fowl (wild and driven!), geese – and all well within an hour’s drive from base. As before, the food and hospitality were first rate and the conversation around the fire pit was always stimulating. We hope we can carry on another African tradition with Clayton and all the Umdende family.
