Hunting in Africa

Hunting in Africa

Trophy Nyala bullHunting in Africa really is a hunters’ dream with so many different small and big game species to hunt. You can hunt here for some of the most unique animals in the world. There are so many species to choose from and enough variance in the terrain to suit just about any type of hunting you could ask for. Being such a beautiful destination, there is also plenty to do for the non-hunting members of your group. We can help to organise sight-seeing and other activities around the hunting area.

Limpopo

Do you like to get up close and personal with the game when you’re hunting? The Limpopo Province is perfect for bowhunting because of its large wooded areas. This will give you the perfect opportunity to test your spot and stalk skills. You can hunt Africa’s many different antelope species (including the Tiny Ten), herd animals, dangerous game and the Big Five here. The main hunting camp borders the Marekele National Park.

Free State

Youth huntAre you a long range, rifle hunter at heart? If you like to really test your shooting skills while hunting then Free State might be just the place for you. This area is located in the centre of South Africa. Being a region of flat, rolling grassland it is perfect for spot and stalk hunting (a good pair of binoculars will come in handy!) This is also the only place in the world where you can hunt Black Wildebeest in their natural habitat. There is no shortage of antelope in this area. It is known for its well-established herds of springbok, greater kudu, hartebeest and zebra. Our hunting packages are on concessions in the Senekal area.

North West Province

If those areas don’t sound exciting enough for you then the North West Province might have what you’re after. The unique topography and sheer size of this area makes it a great place to hunt dangerous game, like elephant, lion, black rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, and leopard. It also sports a massive selection of antelope and herd animals including impala, springbok, red lechwe, gemsbok, steenbok, duiker, kudu, red hartebeest, eland, zebra, giraffe, sable, roan and a variety of other game species.

Mozambique

Trophy Kudu hunt in Africa

Our final hunting area is located in Mozambique. This area is perfect for dangerous game hunting. Hunters who travel here are primarily after Cape Buffalo and Nile Crocodile. This is also a great place to hunt with a team of trackers on foot and experience hunting as it was a century ago. The hunting camp is located in the Pafuri area.

Learn to Hunt Packages
