Lion (Pantera leo)

  • Few hunters can ever forget the intent gaze of yellow eyes fixated on you when hunting Lion in the African bush, the earth shattering roar when beast is about to charge, will have many hunters still relishing in adrenalin for many years to come. One of Africa’s most recognizable and famous Beasts which have become synonymies with Hollywood movies. And the MGM Lion. We have 2 options of hunting Lion in South Africa,

White Rhino (Ceratotherium simum)

  • Once on the verge of extinction, the white rhino now flourishes in reserves and on game ranches throughout South Africa. Seemingly the most placid of the Big 5 to hunt, these rhino are known more for their belligerence than for their ferocity. But beware when given the opportunity they have been known to charge. Currently there is a considerable urge amongst conservation minded hunters and ranchers to promote Green hunts, darting which is less costly and is accepted by SCI Record Book entries.
  • The animal is pursued on foot and a dart gun requires very close range shots approximately 30 yards which is a very exciting means of hunting. The animal is then photographed and measured and then checked by a Vetinary surgeon and revived with an antidote within 10 minutes.
  • CITES The Southern White Rhino is allowed to be hunted as a trophy in South Africa, importation of these trophies is allowed into USA and Europe. Trophies hunted in South Africa only require a CITES export permit.

African Buffalo (cyncerus caffer)

 DONALD TRUMP Junior and his big Cape Buffalo shot with us in Matetsi Zimbabwe. Close to Victoria Falls in August 2010

  • Cape Buffalo are herd concentrated animals. They tend to graze extensively at night and in the cooler parts of the day, seeking shaded cover as it gets hotter, as close as possible to water. No other African Big 5 game animal is held in higher esteem as one of the most worthy hunting adversaries than the African Buffalo.
  • The Cape Buffalo certainly has the most notorius reputation of all big game in Africa. They are born aggresive and have that look that can kill! If you are up to the challenge, then hunting “Africa’s black death” is sure to give you the adventure of a life time.
  • CITES Although Cape Buffalo are not considered as an endangered species, some countries do have them listed as protected game. (Non CITES)
