Johannesburg is the city of arrival. From here, you will be transferred to the hunting camp. It can be a regular of a charter flight, or even a car transfer (up to 6-hour drives are possible.)

HUNTING

4x4 cars are used for transportation around the hunting area. South Africa offers a wide variety of hunting methods, including classical spot-and-stalk hunts, shooting from a vehicle, evening/night baiting for Hyena and Bushpig etc. For example, a lion in the Kalahari region is followed by its tracks in the sand, no baiting is necessary.

ACCOMMODATION

The five-star lodges are waiting for you to come. Those include Kalahari Oryx, Kwazulu and Serapa and are all about leisure and comfort. The rooms have air conditioners and heaters; there are pools and open decks with fantastic views. Traditional fireplaces with comfy rattan chairs will welcome you in the evening.
The Stein and Limpopo lodges are not that luxurious, however the rooms are still very comfortable and decorated in a traditional African style, and the staff will take care of every guest.

AREA

The hunts are organized all over South Africa, in many different camps and hunting grounds. The variety of hunting areas starts with the private Kwazulu Natal Game Reserve, which has once belonged to Zulu kings, and ends with the Kalahari region, which is home to a great number of hunting species in spite of its dry climate. The choice of the camps will depend on the type of hunting desired.

For people who grew up hunting, shooting often settled the mind. It was something that required full concentration, and therefore took you away from your troubles, at least for a short time. Tara Kyle
