Area hunters and outdoor enthusiasts gathered at Double Lung Archery (DLA) last week, as professional hunter and outfitter Charl van Rooyen of Infinito Safaris was welcomed back to La Porte City for a presentation that illustrated the thrills and challenges of bowhunting in South Africa. DLA owner, Dave Stueve, the exclusive booking agent in the United States for Infinito Bowhunting Safaris, hosted the informational session that outlined what a South African bowhunting safari is all about. It’s an experience like no other, van Rooyen noted, citing the variety, size and toughness of the animals available to hunters.

Infinito Safaris success and reputation as one of the top outfitters in Africa is well-deserved, as the safari experience with van Rooyen and his staff include lodging and dining amenities that are described as “top-notch.”
