South African Safari

Africa has for many decades been the ultimate destination for hunters. With the number of species and the multitude of game a hunter can spend a lifetime collecting trophies. Hunting in Africa will be one of the most memorable events in your life. Your days will be filled with the discovery of new and exciting game such as Kudu, Gemsbok, Impala, Cape Bushbuck and many others that call South Africa home. Your evenings will be spent with new friends over a typical African meal that would fit well in any five star restaurant.

A trip to Africa may seem to be a daunting undertaking but our experience in traveling to South Africa several times and that of the Professional Hunter (PH) that will be assisting you will take all the worry and guesswork out of getting you to a true African Safari!

South Africa has nine provinces. The areas differ greatly in terms of topography and vegetation and can range from densely wooded savannah to open grassland. Each area presents a unique habitat, which is ideally suited to certain of the plains game species. The primary camp is in the Eastern Cape – located in the high desert one hour north of the Port Elizabeth. However, you will have access to concessions from the Eastern Cape to the Northern most provinces and will have the opportunity to hunt over 30 species of game.

The camp is set up for both the seasoned African hunter looking for superior service and record book quality game and for the first time Safari hunter. Both rifle, muzzleloader and bow only hunting concessions are available with a guarantee that 80% of the all trophies will make the SCI record books. Unlike some other safari outfitters, the animals on the bow only concessions have only been been hunted by bow. Families are welcome as well. We have a long client and reference list that we can make available upon request.

Africa – the dark continent. Beautiful and sometimes dangerous.

South Africa Safari and Hunting Packages

The camp includes two family properties that are carefully managed for hunting. Each lodge has a breathtaking view of the Cape Mountains. All rooms are private with their own bathroom and shower. All are decorated in classic African décor.

Meals are served three times daily. You will have the opportunity to try some of the game bagged on Safari and other traditional South African cuisine. However, meals can be customized to your taste and dietary restrictions.

Depending on the game sought on safari, some overnight stays may be necessary. These accommodations are some of the most comfortable and scenic in the country. Regardless of where you hunt, there will always be a hot meal and comfortable place to rest at the end of your exciting day’s hunt.

Hunts are conducted one on one or two on one. Your professional hunter will transport you to the concession with the best opportunity to bag the particular species you are after. He will help spot and pick out the animal that best suits your specifications. Skinners and trackers will also accompany you. JP has a skinning facility at camp as well as a museum quality taxidermy shop.

Hunting season is from March 1 – October 31.
