Barry Podesta is a very experienced PH for over 20 years and now has his own Outfitting business with his own base on his own Ranch. I know Barry well and I have personally hunted with him on his Ranch.

RHS / Richard Holmes Safaris books for Barry Podesta Hunting Safaris when RHS is full or for species RHS does not have access to, eg. Bushbuck, Warthog to name some. I have decided to work with Barry because his hunting ethics and the way he runs his safaris is the same as RHS does.

Barry Podesta Hunting Safaris is based near Grahamstown, specfically near the small village of Riebeeck East, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.  He is nearer to PE ( Port Elizabeth ) than RHS.  Barry is about 1 half hours drive from PE and will do PE pick up and return transfer like RHS does.

He has access to very many Kudu. Grahamstown area is known for its good Kudu and Barry has over 400,000 acres of hunting area near him with many species available, much the same as RHS's species list.

Barry is married with 2 teenage daughters.
