About hunting in Limpopo
Named after the Limpopo River which forms the border with Botswana and Zimbabwe. Being predominantly rural, the region offers great scenic landscapes and diversity from the Waterberg Biosphere Mountains to the Baobab trees of the world renowned Mapungubwe archaeological site and the infamous Crooks Corner, an area frequented by well-known hunters of bygone eras. The province can be divided into two areas, the dry Bushveld of the western region and the Lowveld in the east adjoining the iconic Kruger National Park. Together, these areas represent approximately 80% of South Africa’s game hunting industry. This sought after hunting destination is best hunted from May to October by both bow and rifle hunters alike. The Lowveld region is dominated by Mopane trees where some of the best “Big 5” free-range traditional hunting can be found within the massive privately and community owned reserves that share open boundaries with National and Provincial Parks in the province. Apart from these sought after premier hunts, Hippo, Crocodile and Spotted Hyena are some of the other specials for the region. The majority of hunters visiting South Africa will at some time hunt in the Bushveld region with its massive concentration (80%) of the country’s game ranches creating mile upon mile of high fenced territories and numerous game breeding projects. Years of sustained game ranching efforts has led to South Africa’s conservation success story. The fruits of which have led to improved genetics, better trophy quality and an increased game populations. Owning a high fenced property entitles the landowner to an exemption permit. The benefit of this permit allows the owner to be master of his own destiny, laying full claim to the animals on their land and allows visiting hunters exemption from complying with numerous laws, conditions and permits required to hunt on an unfenced property. Buffalo, Kudu, Sable, Waterbuck, Zebra, Limpopo Bushbuck and other general game are the sought after trophies for the region. Rarer species such as Roan Antelope, Tsessebe and Brown Hyenas can be found on many price lists. Read more...
Many Outfitters offer the lesser known nocturnal species, like Honey Badgers, Serval, Caracal and Civet Cats. Monster Warthogs are also shot in the province and if pig hunting is you're calling in life, numerous outfitters offer cull Warthog hunts. Threatened or Protected Species (TOPS) and CITES permits are required for some species even with an exemption permit. All the necessary documentation details will be provided by your Outfitter.

3 Plus Hunters: Bushveld PG Hunt South Africa
MINIMUM 3 OR MORE HUNTERS ADVERTISED PRICE IS PER HUNTER 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.
