Custom African Hunting Safaris

A herd of blue wildebeest in the bushveld.

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 as well as the trophy species which you would like to hunt.

The African hunting safari is often the fulfillment of a hunter's lifelong dream. For some, it is a once in a lifetime event, but for many it marks only the first of many trips back to the bush to once again test themselves against nature and her wild creatures. Our custum 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 right clothing, a hat to keep the sun at bay, and a good pair of boots - that are well broken in - are just a few of the important 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 any of the other shooting positions that you feel you may encounter.
