This is our most popular package! Very simply the best value for the money in African hunting today. The Magnificent kudu is the most sought after plains game species. Our area along the Great Fish River in the Eastern Cape, has the highest concentration of kudu in Southern Africa. Success rates are over 95%. We hunt the kudu in the rugged mountains and steep ravines that they call home. Hunting the other animals in this package will take you to other habitats and terrain providing a varied and rich over all experience. The package also includes all meals, accommodations, airport transfers, PH (Professional Hunter), trackers, skinners, taxes, field prep of trophies, and even beer, wine & daily laundry. There are no hidden charges, the only extras would be flights, tips, and taxidermy/shipping. All our hunts are strictly fair chase on over 500,000 acres near East London, South Africa. This is not a game farm or pen hunt. Rifles, bows and pistols welcome. Hunt is actually 9 days as the arrival day and departure day are included in the cost but do not count against your hunting time. As with all of our packages all children 18 and under can accompany an adult free and they can share in the animals from the package. Additional animals can always be taken as per the trophy list.
Our full time staff in the US will assist in every aspect of planning your safari. We are able to provide wholesale flights, as well as assist with all other travel arrangements, gun permitting, etc. After the hunt we have our own full service taxidermy shop in house and will either dip, pack & ship to your personal taxidermist or mount your trophies and ship them to your door. No doubt during this entire process you will have many questions, we are available to answer them with the convenience of a toll free call, text or email at any time. During the whole process you will deal with one person that takes care of every detail. We have been working in African for 20+ years and look forward to being at your side throughout the entire experience!

NOTE ON ALL PACKAGES: There is no refund for any animals not taken while hunting on a package. All animals wounded but not recovered count against animals in package. We will make every effort to recover your trophy. We have some of the best trackers in Africa as well as some of the best tracking dogs you will ever see. Very few get away! Also please note that there is no charge for the day you arrive and the day you depart. For example for example a 7 day hunt is actually 9 days as we pick you up at the airport and return you with everything taken care of in-between. You only pay for the time you are in the field hunting. At all times we treat you like a member of our family.
NEW! For the ladies and non hunters:
We have always believed that Africa should be experienced as a couple or a family. We have designed our lodges and maintain the private reserves that they are located on with your non hunters in mind. At each of our lodges you will find the highest standards of accommodation and cuisine as well as a good mix of wildlife for the overall African experience. On our properties we have just about every species of African animal right out your front door. This includes rhino, herds of buffalo, leopard and many species of planes game. Game viewing is often best right from the swimming pool! We also have blinds and observation areas set aside for those who whish to do photography and bird watching. The restoration efforts on our properties have led to an abundance of flora and fauna. There is always something going on in the bush! With us non hunters are also always welcome out on the hunt. Remember this is your private hunt with private guide and vehicle. Many of the ladies will accompany us in the bush and become part of the team helping spot animals and recording the hunt on video or in pictures. (Through the years we even have had a number of non hunters take their first animal with us!) We also realize that this may not be for everyone. One great advantage we have is that our lodges are not located hours out in the bush completely away from civilization. While our hunting areas are far away from the towns we are not that far away that we can pop in for a visit! Most of the activities listed below are within an hours drive or less from one of our lodges and they make excellent day trips for the non hunters. We can also organize pre and post hunt itineraries for the entire group such as Cape Town or Victoria Falls and Chobe. Contact us for details.
Below we have some of the many additional non hunting activities that we offer from our lodges. At many hunting lodges the ladies find themselves isolated out in the country with nothing much to do during the hunting days. This is not the case with us! Our hunting area is unique in that we are not located out in the countryside hours away from towns and civilization. We can offer many activities from classic photo safari to golf and even skydiving! All of this and more can be found a short drive from our lodges. We have always believed that Africa is to be experienced as a family. This is one hunt were the non-hunters have more fun then the hunters! While you are off stalking game your non-hunters will be on the holiday of a lifetime. Below is a short list of possible options. If you have other interests then please let us know and we will design a program just for you! Click on the options below for more details
