Classic Safaris

The hunting takes place in the Limpopo, Mpumalanga and North-West Provinces, depending on the species to be hunted or the preference of the client. Our safari’s constantly produce top class trophies for our clients due to the fact that we hunt the desired species where the biggest trophies occur. You can choose the trophy animals you want to hunt and the number of day’s you have available and we tailor make your hunt to your exact specifications and requirements. The hunting takes place on game ranches and varies from 2500 acres up to 50000 acres. The total hunting area is 135 000 acres in the Limpopo Province, 57000 acres in Mpumalanga Province and 33000 acres in North-West Province. It is very realistic to plan on taking one good trophy animal per day.
