A hunt in the wild throes of the African continent is one of the world's greatest outdoor pursuits. When booking a custom hunting safari, you determine the duration and the trophy species you would like to hunt.
The African hunting safari often fulfills a hunter's lifelong dream. For some, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event. It marks only the first of many trips back to the bush for many folks. Our custom hunts offer a great deal of flexibility when planning your safari.
Preparation for the African hunting safari is of utmost importance and should begin months before one sets foot on African soil. The proper clothing, a hat to keep the sun at bay, and a good pair of boots - well broken in - are just a few of the essential considerations.
The choice of rifles may sometimes be an issue, but in most cases, your favorite deer rifle will be sufficient for just about all of the plains game species. Be sure to mate your rifle with premium, high-quality ammunition loaded with heavy-for-caliber bullets. If you intend to hunt any dangerous game species, most African countries require the use of a .375 caliber rifle or larger. Take the time to sight in your rifle properly and then practice with it. Be thoroughly familiar with your weapon of choice and shoot from the sticks, off-hand, and in any other shooting positions, you feel you may encounter.
