Plains Game Hunting South Africa

Plains game hunting brings more hunters to Africa each year than all of the Big Five combined. Southern Africa can boast of more species of mammals than any other destination on the globe. The abundance of antelope species in Southern Africa, and especially South Africa, make it an absolute paradise for those hunters inclined to take medium-sized game. To some, plains game hunting in Southern Africa has remained only a dream, as most perceive it far too expensive and best left to only the wealthiest of hunters. THIS IS A MYTH! In fact, you can book a very enjoyable plains game hunting safari in South Africa for considerably less than the average elk hunt in the western states of America.

African plains game hunting is conducted in a variety of geographical areas which can vary widely in climate, vegetation, and topography. The hunting areas can range from densely wooded savanna to wide open grasslands. Our great diversity of plains game abound from the bushveld of the Limpopo province to the vast open plains of the Free State and back to the sands and heavy thorn bush of the Kalahari. Each of these areas offer a unique habitat, which is ideally suited to the specific plains game species and holds its own special challenges for the plains game hunter. Hunting the bushveld, because of its thick cover, shots can often be taken well inside 100 paces. The vast, open plains of the Free State may demand shots out to 300 paces, while the thick thorn bush of the Kalahari can present the hunter with shots at less than 50 paces. The stalk can be extremely strenuous due to the seemingly endless sand.

The hunting techniques that we employ can vary based upon the preference of the hunter. It can range from walk and stalk to glassing and hunting from a blind with bow and arrow. A client with a disability or anyone whose physical activity is limited by age or medical condition can hunt from one of our well-equipped hunting vehicles.
