South Africa attracts more international hunters annually than any other country in Africa.
South Africa Hunters attracts more internationally hunters are the most popular hunting destination on the continent. The wealth of species on offer, the wide range of hunting experiences, overall affordability and fantastic infrastructure all contribute to a world-class African hunting destination. From tracking a lion across the primeval sands of the Kalahari Desert to unwinding with a refreshing beverage in the plush environment of a five star hunting camp, South Africa has a hunting experience available to realize every hunter’s dream.
The primary areas that we include in our South African hunting packages are the bushveld (Limpopo and Gauteng), lowveld (Mpumalanga), parts of the North West, the Kalahari (Northern Cape), the Eastern Cape and the plains of the eastern Free State. While certain trophy animals may be taken in multiple areas – particularly your more common plains game species like impalas and blesbok – each area also boasts its own distinct species, which makes pursuing that animal in that environment all the more authentic and memorable.
We make use of various hunting camps in each area to ensure that each hunter’s individual needs are met. Whether you prefer hunting from a base that is truly off-the-grid and rewardingly rustic, or you savor the finer things in life and enjoy a base endowed with every imaginable creature comfort, you will find your expectations exceeded. The camps have been carefully selected for their locations, level of intimacy and the high caliber of the staff complement.
Most camps are easily accessible via OR Tambo International in Johannesburg, which is also a large part of the appeal in choosing South Africa for your hunting safari. You can hunt the formidable Cape buffalo in a truly wild area some two hours from the airport, and be none the wiser that such a cosmopolitan city is a stone’s throw from your hunting camp. Regional flights – to Port Elizabeth for the Eastern Cape, or to Nelspruit for the lowveld – are competitively priced. Charter flights are required for remote destinations like the Kalahari, and if you’d prefer to skip the lengthy drive to the Free State.
South Africa is particularly ideal if you are looking to bring along observers or your family, as there is such a wealth of local highlights for them to enjoy. Tacking on a safari in the world-renowned Kruger National Park is particularly popular, but you are welcome to venture further afield. Our photographic safaris and tours are entirely customizable for exactly this purpose.
