About hunting in Mpumalanga

Mpumalanga means east or “the place where the sun rises” in the local Nguni languages. The landscape is a kaleidoscope of panoramic mountain passes, valleys, rivers, waterfalls and forests, steeped in the history of early gold miners and pioneers. Its tourist attractions include the iconic Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon, the world’s third largest canyon. The regions hunting landscapes and habitats can be divided into two distinct regions by the Drakensberg Mountains, the frost free Lowveld and the Highveld. One being low altitude relatively flat subtropical Bushveld savanna habitat. The Highveld on the other hand is a high altitude alpine grassland region that often experiences serve frost with morning and night time temperatures below freezing in winter. The Lowveld is known as “Big Game Country”. Dangerous game is readily available on both game ranches and free-range hunts in some of the huge private and community owned game reserves with open boundaries with South Africa well known Parks. Top trophy quality species like Elephant, Buffalo, Hippo and Crocodile abound in this region. Free-range Lions and Leopard quotas are also made available by the government from time to time. Good Waterbuck, Kudu, Nyala and Bushbuck can also be hunted in the Lowveld Bushveld. If you are after some of the less hunted species like Spotted Hyena, Serval, Civet and other small predators, this is where you need to be. Moving inland, the vegetation and hunting conditions change completely and so do many of the plains game species. Species like Eland become more abundant and so do Blesbok. Black Wildebeest and Springbuck occur on the Highveld which do not survive in the Lowveld and there are even a few isolated pockets of Grey (Vaal) Rhebuck scattered across the highest mountains in the province.

Hunting in these often wind swept undulating hills can be tough as there is little cover and makes walking and stalking quite a challenge in these open grasslands. Long shots and a steady hand will become the order of the day. Good upland and waterfowl bird shooting is also available. This region is recognised as such by the many dog field trial events held in the region which also boasts the country’s best fly fishing (Trout). 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.

We have the expertise and infrastructure to make your African Safari an unforgettable experience. Whether you are interested in Hunting the Big 5, Plains Game, Game Birds, fighting some of Africa’s fish species or a photo safari it promises to be an experience to remember. Your hunting safari will be exclusive and designed around your personal preferences and requirements. Our concessions range from the Mpumalanga Escarpment at 6700 ft above sea level to the Bushveld of the Limpopo province. We have a specialist concession for our Bow Hunters that will provide you with ample hunting opportunities. Our rifle hunting concessions are well managed and we do offer culling packages from time to time on these concessions. Our wing shooting concessions are carefully managed and we will only hunt a covey once a season thereby ensuring we have not destroyed the covey and we can hunt the same area the next season. We work closely with our concession owners to ensure that the conservation of animals takes paramount importance. A percentage of the money spent by our clients on safari will find its way into conservation and especially anti-poaching operations.
