"From the moment we stepped off the plane, we were catered to. Every need was met before we knew we needed anything. The food was fantastic and the hunting was everything we could have hoped for. We will be back!"
RICHARD LANE, USA
The South African hunting industry, particularly big game hunting, is coming under increasing fire and criticism. Though we welcome thousands of hunters to our country every year who openly document their hunting safaris, when images surface of prominent figures on a big game hunt (Australian cricket players Glenn McGrath and Brett Lee) or, quite surprisingly, images that challenge gender stereotypes (Melissa Bachman and her lion), these hunts are splashed across the media under sensational titles that include dramatic terms like ‘scandal’ and ‘outrage’. The result is that legions of animal lovers decry hunters’ apparent contribution to the decline of endangered species numbers, not realizing that trophy hunting, in fact, contributes far more to wildlife conservation than any other conservation incentive.
Because of the high commercial value provided by trophy hunting, game currently occupies more privately owned land in South Africa than cattle. A remarkable amount of species have been brought back from the brink of extinction due largely (and in some cases, almost completely) to trophy hunting, including sable antelope, black wildebeest, bontebok and even rhino. Lions, elephant, buffalo and leopard are not being hunted unchecked and into extinction – on the contrary. Hunting the Big Five (and big game in general) is a highly controlled, meticulously monitored and completely legal endeavor.
Nicknamed "the Black Death" and "Widowmaker", the Cape buffalo is one of the most unpredictable and formidable adversaries a dangerous game hunter can face. It is also the most popular member of the Big Five in terms of trophy hunting. African Sky offers buffalo hunting in South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The Sable is inarguably one of the most handsome antelope species on the continent. This large, near-horselike creature boasts spectacular curved horns and a dramatically contrasted coat of black and white. The Sable can be hunted in South Africa and in Zimbabwe.
The 'King of the Bush' still evokes the kind of terror and awe that inspired big game hunters to travel to the continent in centuries past. Our lion hunting safaris are conducted amidst the red sands of the Kalahari in South Africa's Northern Cape province - an African tableau that will remain with you years to come.
The blue wildebeest (or 'brindled gnu') is a popular inclusion in plains game packages that cater to both beginner and expert hunters. Its image is synonymous with the Serengeti of East Africa. This bizarre-looking 'beest' makes a fine trophy and is typically found in habitats of acacia savanna and short grass plains.
Revered for its spectacular spiraled horns and attractive markings, the kudu is one of Southern Africa's most iconic antelopes and sought-after plains game trophies. These imposing animals are typically hunted in the bushveld regions of South Africa and Zimbabwe, where they enjoy the finest browsing prospects.
The impala is one of the most common antelope species on the continent, with a range that stretches across most of Sub-Saharan Africa. This highly successful browser and grazer is available in the all the areas where we conduct our hunting safaris, ensuring an attractive available staple.
This package is popular both with beginner hunters as well as seasoned hunters visiting the African continent for the first time. The hunting safari is conducted in a bushveld region conveniently close to Johannesburg, and includes a blue wildebeest, a blesbok and an impala.
Traverse the vast, open plains of the eastern Free State province on a hunting package that includes exciting plains game species like black wildebeest, white blesbok, gemsbok and springbok. An abundance of different plains game species are found in this area which can also be added to your list.
Enjoy two weeks hunting in two of South Africa's most prolific hunting areas - the bushveld in the north and the eastern Free State to the south. This comprehensive packages includes kudu, impala, warthog, blue wildebeest, black wildebeest, springbok, blesbok and zebra.
