South Africa is one of the most sought-after destinations for trophy hunters, and rightfully so. The country offers so much to visitors including a great variety of diverse habitats and landscapes on the southern tip of Africa. The country has a well-developed professional hunting and game ranching industry with excellent infrastructure, a wealth of other activities to complement hunting and last not least the cultural richness and hospitality of the Rainbow Nation.
More importantly, South Africa offers a selection of trophy animals which is second to none in the world. The greatest variety of animals available for hunting in the only country in Africa.
Hunting is available on private game ranches, and in controlled hunting areas in some provincial game reserves. The number of Game on private land is an estimated two and a half times more than the number of games on public land. Hunting in South Africa is a great experience for any hunter.
Limpopo is the northern province of South Africa and shares international borders with districts and provinces of three countries namely: Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
Within this area lies the renowned “Bushveld” which is a sub-tropical woodland eco-region of Southern Africa.
The elevation of this Limpopo region varies from 750 to 1,400 meters and the annual rainfall varies from 350 mm in the west to 600 mm in parts of the northeast. Rainfall typically occurs in the summer and in the late afternoon thunder showers are fierce but short in duration, with lightning that creates a most spectacular display. Warm days and chilly evenings make April through September the best time of year to hunt.
This province creates an opportunity for a great, diverse hunting experience. The habitat can change from fairly open Savannah to densely wooded hills. Further north the Bushveld dries out into typical woodland dotted with Baobab trees. This habitat diversity has resulted in an amazingly rich mammal fauna. Most species can be hunted in this province although this is not always preferred. We travel to other provinces for selected species.
The Eastern Cape consists of coastal forests to semi desert plains and mountain ranges where there is a wide range of species available. Specific species such as Black wildebeest, Springbuck and Bontebok are available in these provinces.
The adrenalin-rush of tracking down a lion on foot for hours in the Camelthorn dominated sandy region of South Africa is an experience that cannot be matched. On foot slogging through thick sand is usually rewarded by tracking down and shooting the trophy of a lifetime. Plain’s game such as springbuck, gemsbuck, hartebeest and wildebeest also inhabit the Kalahari, although these animals often go without running surface water for most of the year.
