Mark and Cindy at Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris take all the stress out of booking an overseas hunt plus they represent the best outfitters in the business. We've booked several hunts through them to Africa, New Zealand and Australia and they looked after everything, from our firearm paperwork to helping with flights and they even handle all of the trophy importation, including the secondary treatment required by the CFIA here in Canada.
When we go hunting, we just want to concentrate on the hunt itself and not worry about all the logistics of getting there and back. Mark and Cindy take care of all those worries and we can just enjoy the hunt. If you are looking at booking an overseas hunt, definitely give them a call and if you need help importing your trophies that require CFIA mandated treatment here in Canada, they take all the worry out of that too.
We booked our New Zealand Hunt at Gary Herbert's New Zealand Hunting through Select World Wide Hunting Safari's. Mark and Cindy went above and beyond to make our experience as memorable as possible. From the booking of the flights to making sure our animals arrived in Canada properly for the taxidermy work, there efforts were noticed and appreciated. The whole process was painless and it left our family with a lifetime of memories. I will continue to recommend Select World Wide Hunting Safari's to all my friends that are looking for an experience similar to ours.

“As a result of Mark and Cindy’s experience and professionalism absolutely everything went hassle free every single time!
My expectations were not only met, but consistently exceeded, and it didn’t matter if I was filming hunts in Africa, New Zealand or elsewhere, their experience and attention to detail ensured that every trip went smoothly from start to finish, was as stress free as possible and I never once had an unpleasant surprise or fiasco to deal with in a foreign country nor upon my return”.

Just like myself, everyone has remained a repeat client of Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris.

Very Best Regards,
If you are considering that "once in a lifetime" hunt, I would highly recommend contacting Mark and Cindy Zimmermann of Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris as a first step. Prior to my first African trip, I spoke with a number of safari representatives at hunting shows, read brochures, reviewed websites, compared services and prices, and generally considered a wide variety of options in terms of destination, time of year, safari firms and animals I wished to hunt.
Ultimately I chose to use the services provided by Mark and Cindy, and have not regretted doing so. Mark was candid in his recommendations for choices of outfitter, support services and travel arrangements, which were not only greatly appreciated by a first-timer, but also right on the money in terms of services provided and value for money spent. Mark and Cindy took care of the paperwork for importing my firearm, put me in contact with a knowledgeable and capable travel agent who had experience in dealing with transport of firearms, arranged for the "meet and greet" service provided by Hunter Air Support, and ensured that my outfitter and PH was aware of my goals for a first safari. All of these services contributed to the overall experience and made the trip more enjoyable and nearly hassle-free. About the only thing they couldn't help with was the length of the flights required!
I would also recommend Tinashe Hunting Outfitters as a destination. I was met at the airport by owner and PH Clayton Fletcher who helped with all the details, from clearing my firearm and ammunition through South African Police Service to guiding me on the hunt itself. I was fortunate to collect eight species ranging from duiker to Cape Buffalo on a ten day hunt, and feel that all were good representative specimens of the area, and were taken after a considerable expenditure of energy in some cases. We looked at a good number of animals before selecting those harvested. Tinashe caters the hunt to the individual hunter, dependent upon the goals for type of trophy desired and your physical capabilities. Both rifle and bow-hunting clients are welcomed and good animals are harvested by all. While I was there, a client from Turkey harvested a large, mature dark-maned lion and another from France shot a lioness, so it is apparent that Tinashe is a desired destination with an international clientele. And well it should be, for they offer first-rate accommodation, food and service!
In summary, Mark and Cindy Zimmermann of Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris provide an excellent service to their clients, making a distant hunt not only possible, but far less stressful, from initial planning to delivery of your trophies. I have already booked my next hunt using their services; back to Tinashe for plains game, and we are looking at the possibility of a New Zealand hunt with Gary Herbert as well. I did so with confidence, knowing that my needs will be addressed.

Mark and Cindy from Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris are a tremendous help when booking that hunt of a lifetime. They take all the burden out of organizing your hunt with the outfitter. From your firearms paperwork to your flights right down to bringing your trophies back to Canada. We used Mark and Cindy to go to South Africa at Tinashe Outfitters and the overall experience was outstanding.
We had a great time with Mark and Cindy sitting around the fire and sharing hunting stories. We became more than just clients, we became friends.
We already have Mark and Cindy working on our next adventure to New Zealand.
From the very first contact I had with Mark and Cindy at Select Worldwide Hunting Safaris they were very helpful and knowledgeable!
This was my first hunt to Africa so I was understandably nervous about all the required paperwork needed to do a hunt of this magnitude but Mark and Cindy took away all that stress and worry! I was able to concentrate on the hunt and leave all the planning to them.
They looked after all the permits for my firearms and handling of my trophies importation. Doing all of this for me was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and gave me the ability to just focus on me preparing for the hunt of a lifetime. They were always available to answer any questions I had and helped so much to make my trip smooth and hassle free. I would not hesitate to book thru them again and would recommend them to anyone thinking of doing a hunting safari.
Thanks so much Mark and Cindy for all you did to make my safari so great. Working with you was a pleasure and not only did I get to participate in a trip of a lifetime, but I made 2 lifelong friends as well.
Dear Mark and Cindy,
We are writing to express our sincere appreciation for your recommendation, assistance and advice for our trip to South Africa last month.
We had an amazing time thanks to your coordination of our trip. You helped a great deal with the required paperwork to prepare for our trip. Obtaining all of our required federal firearms import permits, liaising with South African Hunter's Support Organization to ensure all African gun import permits were secured, and providing us with copies of all documentation made for a smooth trip from Calgary to South Africa.
We had absolutely no problems or delays as all of our documents were in order! The hunting and photo safaris will be adventures we and our girls will remember for a lifetime. The accommodations, food, atmosphere and staff were truly remarkable and as fabulous as you both described! We have not ever experienced a trip like this before.
We can't wait to visit again!
