About hunting in Africa

For the hunter seeking a wide variety of game animals, beautiful country, century-old hunting traditions, and the spice of danger, hunting in Africa is an experience unmatched anywhere on Earth. Whether you choose to hunt plains game in southern Africa or take on Cape buffalo and elephant in the wilds of East Africa, a hunt on the African continent will create memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. More than a dozen countries in Africa offer hunting in some form. The countries in southern Africa, especially South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe, are visited by the largest numbers of hunters. Hunting in these countries is accessible and affordable and provides an outstanding experience, especially for the first-timer. East Africa, especially Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Mozambique, holds large wilderness areas and good numbers of dangerous-game animals such as lions, buffalo, leopards, and elephants. Safaris in this region are true to the tradition of the luxury tented safaris of the mid-twentieth century. Safaris in western and central Africa appeal to experienced African hunters in search of very challenging game such as bongo and giant eland. Most hunting in Africa is conducted “safari-style,” where hunters drive around the hunting area in open-topped vehicles searching for game or tracks of game. When game is sighted, hunters stalk on foot, or when fresh tracks are spotted, hunters disembark to follow on foot, sometimes for many hours. There are a few exceptions, such as leopard hunting, which is usually conducted from a blind over bait. With such a wide variety of terrain, countries, and game animals to choose from, hunting in Africa holds something for everyone.

1x1: Eastern Cape Free-range Hunt

1x1: Eastern Cape Free-range Hunt South Africa

THE RANCH Sits on an escarpment (2200 feet above sea level) and has four unique biospheres within half an hour’s drive. This unique change in biospheres results in huge animal diversity. The landscape and habitats vary from deep wide valley bushveld with thick riverine bush, home of the Eastern Cape Kudu as well as Cape Bushbuck, Nyala, Warthog, and Bush pig. The sides of the valleys/canyons make for great vantage points. A lot of time is spent at theses elevated points glassing for trophies. On the plateau above the valley lies the savanna and scattered woodlands. This is home to species such as Impala, Sable, Zebra, Waterbuck and Mountain Reedbuck. These plateaus also make great vantage points for glassing and the start of many long stalks. The savanna gradually gives way to the long rolling Bedford plains which were once the place of vast animal migrations across the Eastern Cape. These plains are where Springbuck, Blesbok and Black Wildebeest are found and often ambushed from behind the endless anthills which make for good hiding places. These plains give way to the Kaggaberg Mountain range with valleys and box canyons, home to the Eland, Cape Bushbuck and Kudu.
