Elephant hunting in South Africa ({{totalToursString}})

The world’s largest terrestrial mammal needs no introduction. These “Big 5” giants need mega space and plenty of food. They feed for up to 16 hours a day and consume as much as 600 lbs (270 kg) of food a day. Due to their habitat requirements the majority of Elephants found in South Africa occur on large territories, many of which have open boundaries with national and provincial parks making for a true free range hunt. As big as they are, they have excellent camouflage and can move surprising quickly and quietly. They have poor eyesight, good hearing and excellent sense of smell. Beware of cows with calves in the breeding herds as they can be exceptionally dangerous. The majority of Elephant hunts in South Africa have very specific prerequisites often specifying the age and/or tusk weights of the targeted animals. The majority of Elephants hunted in South Africa are taken in the Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal provinces. Traditional walk and stalk Elephant hunts are conducted in selected private nature reserves adjoining the Kruger National Park. Apart from the very specific landowner hunting conditions, rules and regulations, a Threatened or Protected Species (TOPS) permit needs to be arranged prior to the commencement of a hunt, the majority of which can be arranged by your Outfitter. Classified as a vulnerable species by the IUCN, CITES permits will be required for this hunt. Hunting bans and closures often happen at short notice with these pachyderms, so ensure you keep yourself up to date with the ever changing regulations.

Looking for best hunting trips for You...

Why do I see different types of prices?
There are two types of hunts on our platform: Package Hunts and Customizable Hunts. Package Hunts are fixed offers. Customizable Hunts usually allow you to select species and other parameters (number of hunters and guests, etc.) and then you can see the final price of your hunt.

"Package price" tag - this price tag is shown for package hunts, and it's a final price for an offer.

"Price from" tag - we show this tag for customizable hunts either when you search for particular species or when there is only one type of species in an offer. In both cases we include the minimum trophy fee available for this type of animal. It means that you see the final price of the offer, but you can also customize it (e.g. you can include a bigger trophy into your hunt).

"Daily rate fee" tag - this price does NOT include trophy fee. For example, if you are searching for a destination and we can't figure out the species you want, then we show this tag. You will need to include trophies from a hunt page.

Bushveld Dangerous Game Safari Limpopo, South Africa

The average shot with a rifle on Plainsgame would be about 100 yards and at the top end maybe 250 yards. If you are comfortable taking longer shots, that is OK as well, but please practice shooting from sticks and standing up, as this is the scenario most of the time. If Bow Hunting, most of blinds are set up for 20-35 yards shots. Bow Hunting can be done out of various hides on the concessions or on foot by means of walking and stalking. Most shots will be between 20-30 yards, as our bow hides are all strategically placed to ensure the highest possible success rate. Any bow set up that you use for big game hunting back home, for example deer, is sufficient for our plainsgame . We prefer someone to use a bow that they are used to and very familiar with, than go out and get themselves a heavier set up, that they are not familiar with. Success is greater if you are familiar with your bow and used to using it. Fixed blade broad heads are recommended but a well-placed mechanical broad head is also deadly. Additionally for plainsgame we recommend an arrow of at least 400 grains and up and for dangerous game an arrow of at least 750 grains is recommended with a well constructed two blade cut on contact broadhead. NOTE: Although not our intention, all prices are subject to change without notice due to foreign currency fluctuations between the time of the quotation and commencement of the hunt.
