Please, find listed below some of the most common questions that we receive according to hunting in South Africa. We hope they help you to clear your doubts. If you think that we should add any question, please, use the form found below.

Yes, it is very usual indeed. As our ranches offer a large variety of different species, the hunters are used to add new trophies to their packages once they complete their initial list.

The hunting season goes from March to October being all these months quite good for hunting. As part of the South hemisphere, the middle months (July/August) are plenty winter, so this is the coldest period (up to 0ºC ~32ºF).

Beyond our ranches, we hold the hunting rights of other areas where there is no existing fence. Some of the species that we can find there are kudu, waterbuck, vaal rheebuck, warthog…

Yes, although you are absolutely free to hire these services with your most reliable taxidermist. If you want us to work on your trophies, once the hunt is over, our collaborator taxidermist will collect the trophies in the ranch and will proceed to the dip and pack or the definitive mount.

Normally, completing the dip and pack of your trophies can take about three or four months. After that, the trophies will be transferred to the exporting agent who will work together with the importing agent and will apply for the mandatory permits. This process can take other three or four months.

We put at your disposal an assorted variety of good quality guns and scopes at our ranches, so if you prefer to avoid traveling with your gun, you can choose to rent one at our ranches. Importing guns to South Africa isn’t more difficult than at any other corner. You will be required to stop by the Police Station at your arrival to Johannesburg in order to register your gun. All this procedure can be found in “Guns importing” section or clicking here.

All depends on your trophies bucket list because (as it is obvious), it’s not the same hunting a buffalo than a springbuck. For most of the antelopes hunting the most usual calibres with a long penetration will perform perfectly (30.06, 7mm, 270wm, 300win, 308…). For all the big trophies or dangerous game, the heaviest calibres are recommended.

When booking the dates for your trip, we will provide you a list with the items we think necessary when traveling to South Africa. In this way, you will avoid unfortunate oversights.

Normally, we welcome all the hunters in the largest area that counts also on the biggest lodge (up to 14 rooms). Once there, we plan our hunting days according to the list of aimed species and the best possibilities to shoot the nicest trophies. In this way, during your hunt we could move from one camp to another in order to take advantage of the best chances. However, if you are part of a group of fellow hunters, we tend to keep the group together in order you could live and share your experiences together. Anyhow, all these terms can be discussed when booking.

South Africa is a very developed country compared to the rest of the continent, and gathers around the 25% of the African GP. In this way, when you travel to South Africa you will meet a very active country, similar to occident. However, this is not an obstacle to hold a high crime rate, mainly nocturnal, in some of the biggest cities of the country. The rural areas are the other side of the coin, being very safe and whose crime rate is at the lowest. In this way, when you come for a hunt with us you can count on the maximum safety either during your stay in the ranch or in eventual trips in the region.

The Eastern Cape province and most of the country are malaria-free areas. The only exposed areas are found in the North West of South Africa, far from our hunting areas. There is no other known risk.

Yes, although we are not specialists in sightseeing in South Africa. Therefore, we will recommend you a collaborator company that can organize the most interesting visits and tours in South Africa.
