          Too bad management or staff doesn't respond. Is it possible they didn't see the promised Big 5 because you are having them shot by trophy hunters? That alone is sickening but to know you are allowing an endangered rhino to be hunted, is criminal.

          When you saw the Big 5, did the staff tell you they are in the business of selling a rhino to a trophy hunter so he can have it's head on a wall? They claim to be eco-friendly, so very curious if they admitted to killing endangered animals and allowing it for the right price.
