General information: Hunting Africa is the lifelong dream of many sportsmen. We have designed our packages to bring Africa within reach of everyone. This hunt takes place in the Eastern Cape area of South Africa. This is a region of varied terrain from fertile valleys to steep mountains. It is home to large numbers of game. The Karoo is cattle and sheep country much like the American South West. Many of the farmers allow us to manage game on their property for extra income. Eighty percent of our hunting takes place on the open range with standard cattle and sheep fencing. The other twenty percent is on high fence ranches.
Certain species can only be hunted year round in a high fence area, thus we need to use these properties as well. All of our hunting is strictly fair chase. Our primary method is spot and stalk. We have blinds and tree stands as well and hunt with rifle, bow, pistol and black powder. We have farms designated bow only. We do not hunt from vehicles or in pens! Also we are not tied to one property. Our home farm of 5000 acres serves as a base from which we access over 250,000 acres of prime hunting land leased exclusively by us.
Trophy quality is guaranteed because of our trophy game management policies. Only mature animals are taken and a limited quota is set for each property. This allows a large number of animals on the land and also gives them time to mature into the quality trophies you seek. Our animals are all natural production and not bought at action and stocked. Our exclusive leases with landowners assures that we are the only ones taking the prime specimens off their properties. Seasons are reversed in South Africa from North America. May-August is winter and temperatures can get quite cold. Perfect hunting weather! Nov through March has warm to hot days followed by warm evenings.
We usually hunt early and late this time of year with plenty of time to relax during the day. On our hunts you will be accompanied by a certified professional hunter. This will be either one client and one PH or two clients and one PH depending on how you want it. We never mix groups! Even if there is only one of you, you will have exclusive use of the lodges during your hunt and not be mixed with hunters that you do not know. We have four different lodges at our disposal and often move between them depending on what species you are hunting. As stated above we are not tied to one property like many other operations and can move to were the best specimens of the species you are hunting are located.
Our lodges vary from an authentic bush lodge with thatched roof cabins to a very comfortable former South African farm house with all the modern convinces. Africa is literally out the front door. All meals will be prepared by our staff and include many wild game dishes as well as homemade salads and deserts. You will not go hungry! We include all soft drinks, juices, water and tea and coffee as well as local beer and wines. We pride ourselves on offering not only a great hunt but also a complete experience including great food, good company and many additional features that others charge extra for.
Non-hunters are more than welcome! We encourage our clients to bring their families and offer a non hunting rate that reflects this. If your non hunter does not want to follow you in the field many optional tours can be arranged. We have many opportunities from camera safari to spas and golf. We will be glad to put together an exciting program of day trips from the lodge for the non hunter. Additional animals can be taken on all of our packages according to the following trophy prices. All additional animals are to be paid for in South Africa in cash or travelers checks. As always all animals wounded but not recovered must be paid for in full.
Note on All Packages: There is no refund for any animals not taken while hunting on a package. All animals wounded but not recovered count against animals in package. We will make every effort to recover your trophy. We have some of the best trackers in Africa as well as some of the best tracking dogs you will ever see. Very few get away! Also please note that there is no charge for the day you arrive and the day you depart. For example for example a 7 day hunt is actually 9 days as we pick you up at the airport and return you with everything taken care of in-between. You only pay for the time you are in the field hunting. At all times we treat you like a member of our family.
