Hunt the Sun

Travel Guide

Before you depart

Travel INFO

Accommodation ranges from comfortable to ultra luxury. We guarantee you a warm bed, hot shower and excellent prepared meals daily, but in essence we offer much more.

In order for you to experience the true hunt, we make an effort to expose you to the surrounding areas including meeting and interacting with the local people in the different hunting areas.

Pre- or post-safari tours can be arranged.

Any traveling between concessions will be considered a hunting day, however, all necessary arrangements will be made to limit the loss of hunting time by arranging hunts between distant concessions as well as travelling, at times that do not clash with hunting times.

Both Northern Cape and Eastern Cape areas can be hunted on a 10 day safari. Shorter safaris in one camp unless by special arrangement only.

Our standard Ts&Cs are applicable if cancelled 180 days or more before the hunt, otherwise the hunt may be rescheduled.

All clients, hunters and non-hunters, must read and sign our indemnity form before commencement of the Safari.

Cell phones signal is intermittent in the more remote sections of the hunting areas and camps, however wifi is available at the camps.  South African sim cards are readily available, alternatively you can purchase an international roaming package from your service provider..

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.

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.

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.

Both the Eastern and Northern Cape are malaria free but Zimbabwe is considered a malaria area. Please contact your doctor or e-mail us for further information. No additional inoculations or treatments are required by South African countries.

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.
