What is Gray Ghost?

Gray Ghost in American history conjures up John Mosby the Confederate Cavalry commander of the great war of the rebellion 1861-1865. So nicknamed for his ability to appear out of no where, strike the Union forces, and then disappear without a trace. In modern times, here in North America, we think of the Whitetail Deer for its ability to drift through the woods like an apparition. But in Africa, there is one true gray ghost...the Kudu! Spot a Kudu in the bush and watch him disappear before your eyes...the ultimate Gray Ghost.


Our Mission

My goal is to provide you with the African adventure of a lifetime, whether you hunt, fish or use a camera to capture your game. From the moment you book your trip with us, I personally oversee all aspects of your safari to insure there are no hidden surprises. I will assist you in customizing and planning from start to finish. My expertise will provide you personal service that allows you to relax and enjoy your safari. Do you know the difference between a young Lechwe and a mature trophy class Ram? I do. And if Lechwe is on your list, I'll not only arrange that hunt, you'll know the difference before you leave home.

Personal History

I first began dreaming about going to Africa when I was a child at the age of ten. Reading stories in sporting magazines, I could only imagine what it must have been like. I began studying to become a Taxidermist at the age of sixteen while in High School. At the age of 21 I had become a professional at the art.

I didn't begin hunting big game until my early twenties and progressed to hunting the Western States within a few years. I have been very successful in taking many Whitetail and Mule Deer, Black Bear, Pronghorn Antelope, Elk and exotics here in the United States, but Africa became a reality in motion when my friend and I booked a 10 day hunt in South Africa and took a total of 28 trophies between us.

The accommodations, great food, modern vehicles and outstanding service by both family and staff was only surpassed by the expert guidance of our Professional Hunters: Denham and Meyrick Bowker. These two brothers impressed my friend and I as outstanding hunting guides in every way.

Words or even pictures can't descibe how awesome Africa truly is. You have to see it to believe it! I have since hunted many areas of Zimbabwe and continue to hunt much of South Africa's Provinces. Having personally met and or hunted with some of the best Professional Hunters in Africa, I can offer you an adventure of a lifetime. Call me and I'll be glad to answer your questions and assist you in putting together your own Safari.

Good hunting, L. David Keith
