“Jan Dumon is one of the most talented professional hunters that I have met in my 40 years as a safari operator and hunting consultant.

His exceptional experience with dangerous game has been a great asset to our clients and the quality of his hunting concessions is among the finest available in South Africa today.

His cheerful personality and tenacious hunting style have made him a favorite with our clients for more than a decade.

His high volume of repeat business speaks for itself, as most of his clients want to return again for more adventures with Jan and his team at Shumba Safaris.

He has made a solid reputation for superior service and excellent trophy quality.

Jan is one of my most trusted professional friends, a great colleague and an asset to our profession."

"Having hunted a couple of times with Jan Dumon & Shumba Safaris in S.A., I can confidently say - never have I seen a more experienced/knowledgable cat hunter, ever! Accommodations and food have always been great, game plentiful, and success high. Myself and my clients have always left happy. Thanks Jan"

"There are many outfitting companies in South Africa, but Shumba Safaris stands among the best of the best that South Africa has to offer.

Their attention to service is unparalleled, their experience at hunting and guiding to virtually any of the big game species found in South Africa is world class and their accommodations and food are exactly the “Out of Africa” feel that makes any hunt with Shumba Safaris once in a lifetime memory...unless you rebook with Shumba Safaris and hunt with them again and again and again...which is exactly what I have done!!!"

"I booked my first African hunt with Jan at the Dallas safari club convention .

After doing a lot of research , I originally booked a buffalo and plains game hunt,  but a couple of months later I decide to stay longer and added a leopard also.  One thing that Jan offered to me before the hunt and I declined was a lioness permit, time has gone by an I deeply regret saying no.

My wife does not hunt and she came with me as an observer. She enjoyed herself tremendously . I sincerely recommend to any one hunting with Jan to invite a significant other to the hunt as it is a memorable experience.

The hunt was just great and  I cannot complain about a single thing, as all the things that he commented to me before, during and after the hunt are 100% accurate.

Jan, and his lovely wife Lize  made 14 days in South Africa’s greater Kruger area  a life time event for me and my wife.

In addition to an action packed, problem free Safari, Jan closely followed up and monitored  my trophies during the taxidermy and export process in SA. Attention to detail was meticulous.

I have no hesitation to recommend Shumba Safaris to anyone."

"I had originally been contacted by Jan Dumon through a mutual friend and local taxidermist. I had been on an unsuccessful Lion hunt in Zimbabwe the year before and was looking into Tanzania or Zambia at that time as I still really wanted a Lion. 

My taxidermist buddy said Roy I've mounted some nice cats from Jan and his success rate is really good.

So I went on the hunt. Jan made my Lion dream a reality. His concession areas are second to none.

The camp, food, and his wonderful family made for some of the best times I've ever had out of 13 trips to Africa.

Since then I've went back with my family. I've had some good friends go on some great hunts with Jan as well .

Jan is a man of his word and now a trusted Friend"
