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.

Karoo Dream Hunt 1x1

Karoo Dream Hunt 1x1 South Africa

The Eastern Cape boasts 6 out of 7 vegetation biomes and is the most ecologically diverse of South Africa's provinces. This diversity in turn supports a large number of plains game species; from kudu in savannah bushveld, to klipspringer in the craggy mountain peaks and bushbuck in the coastal forests. The Eastern Cape offers an unrivalled variety of hunting opportunities. The area from Uitenhage to Steytlerville is acknowledged as having the highest density of kudu in the world. Every year, 25,000 kudu are hunted in the Eastern Cape. We enjoyed a 100% success rate for kudu in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. During this period 24 out of 24 hunters who had a kudu on their wish list shot a trophy kudu, some chose to hunt a second one.

We treasure the principle of fair chase, so it is important for hunters to know that they should be fit, as walk-and-stalk is our way of hunting. Carefully constructed hides and blinds at strategic locations provide an outstanding opportunity for bow hunters to experience animals at close range, although we love to bow hunt on foot, too. Arrival and departure days are $167. Wingshooting - $235 per day.
