Hunting Dangerous Game in Africa

An African safari can provide memories for a lifetime, particularly if there is dangerous game on the quota. Preparation is of the utmost importance - the right rifle, in the right caliber, with the right bullet can make the difference between a successful hunt and a very expensive stroll through the bushveld. In fact, at the risk of sounding melodramatic, using the right rifle for dangerous game can mean the difference between life and death.

Trust your Professional Hunter's advice in this regard and then practice. Sight-in on the bench and then shoot from the sticks, off-hand and the various other positions you may encounter in the field. Be comfortable, thoroughly familiar, and proficient with your weapon of choice. Remember: “it's where you shoot him, and not what you shoot him with, that is important!" And, as one of our professional hunters is fond of saying: “Shoot straight and always use enough gun."

We offer dangerous game hunting for lion, leopard, white rhino, elephant, buffalo, hippo and crocodile. The area in which the dangerous game hunt is conducted depends on the species which interest you. All of our professional hunters have many years experience in pursuing the dangerous game of Africa. Our success rate on all animals (except the elusive leopard) is very close to 100%.

Please try to book you dangerous game hunt at least six months in advance, as we require some time in order to obtain the necessary permits from the relevant authorities.
