South Africa is home to a large number of trophy species and each are hunted in their naturally occurring habitat. Hunting is based on ethical fair chase and tailor made to suit your needs.
Within the Northern Cape some of the hunting concession is on a ranch which is an active farming operation and allows for free range animals with limited high fence opportunities. The ability to hunt both in the Northern Cape and the Eastern Cape allows for a large variety of species to be hunted.
Specialist hunts for scarce and sought after species are offered throughout Southern Africa allowing you to benefit from our experience. We endeavour to hunt animals in their indigenous habitats to allow you to experience the true hunt.
We have specialist Bow areas and also cater for muzzle loaders.
Exciting wing-shooting which includes Pigeon, Sand Grouse and Guinea Fowl can be arranged on request. Bring your favourite shotgun or use one of ours.
The following information will assist you in preparing for your trip:
The Northern Cape has hot summers and mild winters. The best hunting periods are from March through to September. Winters have cold nights with the days warming unless cold fronts are traversing the country, bringing in cooler polar air.
The Eastern Cape has milder weather with a greater possibility of rain.
Vegetation & Terrain
In the Northern Cape the terrain is undulating with grassland and Camelthorn savanna broken by kopjes and small hills. The varying topography allows for a wide variety of species in their natural habitat. The Eastern Cape is a sharp contrast with dense thicket offering challenging hunting. Terrain requires well worn comfortable boots.
The most important factor when selecting a rifle for your African Safari is to choose a rifle with which you are familiar and shoot well. To shoot successfully in Africa is summed up in three points: Bullet placement, bullet placement, bullet placement.
- Calibers from .270 and upwards are recommended.
- .300 win-mag is regarded as optimum for your general plains game safari.
- Good quality bullets such as Trophy Bonded Bear Claw, Swift A Frame, Barnes X and Nosler partition are advisable.
- Rifles are sighted in when aiming at camp. Ensure that you have enough ammunition for practice.
- Great care is taken so that shots are taken at distances with which the hunter is comfortable, using adequate rests such as shooting sticks etc.
Good quality clothing with a warm bush jacket. Shorts are optional as days can get warm. It is important not to “over-pack” as daily laundry offers a quick turn-around. Camo is highly recommended with patterns that are lighter being preferred.
