There are Hunters and there are Hunters...

Jim and Debbie have been operating Havago for the last 35 years. Making it one of the longest running if not the longest running safari operators in Australia.

Their professionalism is backed up by a lifetime working in the bush. Its our natural element.  “We pride ourselves on professional and personalized experience for each of our hunters. This shows itself as we have hunters still  hunting with us over the 35 years and many hunters returning  each year who have become good friends in hunting sharing many good times with us.”

Jim’s passion for  the bush, hunting and fishing. He is a great source of knowledge of the bush and its wildlife having spent al his life outdoors . You are hunting most times with Jim the PH himself.  in most areas you will have comfortable first class accommodations but remember our hunts are true hunts covering rough rugged terrain. “This is country made for deer, not man”…”

  • It was the best hunt with you I ever had. Everything was all perfect. I enjoyd every minute with you as Professional hunter, guide, cook and now a new friend. For me as a disabled person (double amputated legs obove knees) walking with 2 artificial limbs was more than a normal adventure. When I got contact with you from Germany and spoke...

  • To Whom It May Concern, I hunted with Jim Dieckmann of Havago Australia in September, 2008, for Water Buffalo.  It was one of the best hunts of my life.  Jim is an extremely knowledgeable PH.  I was amazed at how well he knew the animals, their habits and their habitats, the terrain and the plant and bird life.  Jim is also...

    The best hunts of my life.
