Somak do not take bookings for those wanting to participate in the trophy hunting trade. We remain committed to watching wildlife in its natural habitat, and believe that a modern safari goer shoots the "big five" with a camera, and not a gun.
With recent controversies like Cecil the Lion being killed by a trophy hunter, we are concerned that African tourism is receiving an unfair negative portrayal. This is why we feel it necessary to stand up and be counted as an African tour operator that believes in protecting wildlife.
Rest assured that your booking with us, is a booking with a company that cares about wildlife, and not one that supports, actively or tacitly, the exploitation of the animals and ecosystems that make a visit to Africa so special.
