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.

10 day 'Tiny Tot' Package 1x1 South Africa
The all inclusive 10 days 'Tiny Tot' package includes one of each of the 8 species: Springbok, Steenbuck, Klipspringer, Blue duiker, Grey duiker, Oribi, Mountain Reedbuck and Grey or Common reedbuck. We are able to hunt the entire year, but the most popular time is mid-March to end of September. At Royal Karoo Safaris we offer you a choice of hunting options. While trophies and days can be added to the existing packages, substituting of trophies is discouraged. We do NOT charge VAT on packages. Most of our hunting is undertaken using the ‘spot and stalk, ‘stand’ and ‘still’ method and our hunts are fair-chase. Shots vary between 100-300 yards, we urge you to practice shooting from the long bipod shooting sticks that are commonly used here. Because such a large quantity of game can be found in our area, we prefer to limit the amount of travelling while on safari. The Oribi permits will be limited to availability when the client wants to hunt. Please inquire for available dates.
