South Africa Plains and Dangerous Game #66

South Africa Plains and Dangerous Game #66

Hunt-Nation is particularly fortunate to work with several dozen superb African safari companies that cover most of that continent. We are in a unique position to be able to offer our clients this outstanding operation. In all they have about a dozen concessions ranging all over South Africa, and into Zimbabwe as well. By covering such a vast area, you know you can count on taking virtually every species found in southern Africa! And you can hunt with them multiple times, knowing each trip will be different from the last in terrain, facilities and species. But each time you know you will be in excellent hands and will receive superb service along with wonderful hunting.
They have a full team of 7 Professional Hunters (PH’s) that are their regulars and that are most familiar with the operations and the concessions. All have been selected for their excellent abilities in the field, and for their ability to work well with clients.

“Jim Z:
I have hunted with the PH and his team 6 times. By far the best African outfitter there is. I’ve hunted with numerous other outfitters in Namibia, Zimbabwe and South Africa and you will not find a more honest or reputable company. Once you experience what they have to offer you will not be disappointed.”

Because of their many concessions, it is not possible to discuss every one here, but we can do some general descriptions. One major area is the famed Limpopo region which borders Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Limpopo is an area of dense acacia thorn tree bush, with rocky outcrops, moving into open savannah, all set against the gorgeous background of the Waterberg Mountains. It is an area of unspoiled wilderness and with excellent game. This is their primary hunting area. When hunting in Limpopo, animals that can be found are Kudu, impala, warthog, eland, giraffe, rhino, cape buffalo, hippo, waterbuck, blue wildebeest, tsessebe, eland, sable and more.

A second area they is the so called North West Province. Here you are in the Kalahari desert area, which changes as you move eastward into the bushveld. It is relatively flat and dry and a wonderful area for gemsbuck, estate lions and much more.

A third general area is the FREE STATE, located in central South Africa. This area has awesome scenery, particularly near the majestic Maluti Mountains. Some elevations actually exceed 10,000 feet, with towering sandstone cliffs. It is an area of vast sandveld with Kalahri like vegetation and bushveld, giving hunters the best of both worlds. The area has many pans and dams, and some amazing area for wing shooting and upland bird hunting. Their lodges in this area are top-notch and is exclusive to this PH! A huge variety of species are here.

Another area is Western Cape in far southern South Africa in the Cape Town area. Here you find ocean coastline, a temperate climate, and with rocky-type mountains. It stretches into the famed Karoo area and it too has many unique species and is a wonderful place to hunt.

Yet another area is the Eastern Cape with access through Port Elizabeth. This is an area that reminds us much of our eastern Wyoming, with big valleys, long towering hills, farms and fields, and a grand variety of game.

“Terry M:I have hunted on two hunts with them and in two different countries. I have hunted in Africa 6 times, and I can say they are the best. I will never hunt with anyone else in Africa. It doesn’t matter what country or area you want to hunt they can accommodate. I highly recommend them. I would recommend them for any hunting, plains game as well as dangerous. The whole team from PH to camp personal are excellent. I was on an extended period hunt, hunting day and night and never had any issues. I have hunted in Africa for 10 years and they are the best I have had. I will definitely return as well as pass on to my hunting friends. Top notch.
