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.

8 days / 3 animals Safari in 5* lodge South Africa
The area is enormous and has a very varied biodiversity. The daily driving distance entirely depends on the species you wish to hunt, but most of the hunting is within a 30-60 min. drive. The hunt is usually done as a mix of driving in open safari jeeps to find the game, and stalking. These arrangements are done in close coordination with your PH (Professional Hunter) who always accompanies you during the hunt, and is there solely to assist and help in any way possible. Furthermore you will be accompanied by highly qualified Trackers that can find even the smallest of tracks left behind. A typical day starts at around 5.30, with a big continental breakfast followed by a quick drive to your designated hunting area where you, together with your PH and Tracker will start your hunt. As the heat starts to rise, and the animals stop being active, its time for a mid-day break. You either drive back to The Elephant Lodge, or you rest under a three whilst lunch is prepared. After an energizing meal and well deserved break you start up again, and continue until sunset – or when you wish to return to The Elephant Lodge. If you at any point want to stop for the day, or otherwise have any preferences, this is your prerogative.
