SOUTH AFRICA - 2015 safari hunts and adventures

South Africa provides some of Africa's best hunting BUT don't expect to forage into the vast untrammeled wilderness fighting off marauding Lion and fierce warlike savages, much like Selous or Burton did, you'll will be disappointed.

Our safaris and hunts throughout South Africa are quality orientated rather than the more bang for your buck type of package deal which is so common to this country. Sure you can get a cheaper 'shoot' elsewhere but you'll have to look far and wide to find the consistent quality, care, experience and reliability that come with our safari hunts.

7 Day Gemsbok Hunt - $ 4 950 2x1 OR $ 5 250 1x1 - Gemsbok, Blesbok, Springbok, Warthog, Steenbuck OR Duiker

Namibia - 2015 safari hunts and adventures

In northern Namibia, roughly 340 miles north of the capital of Windhoek and just to the south of the Etosha Wildlife Park, is the Kamanjab conservancy, named after the nearby town of Kamanjab. Within this area we offer superb walk-and-stalk hunting on 19 800 acres of private property.

Game is free roaming with no game/high fences, though there are waist high cattle fences. The area is dotted with granite rock inselbergs providing excellent vantage points to glass the surrounding area from. Grass, shrub and lovely trees (like the African star chestnut) and dry ephemeral sand river beds making for perfect “walk and stalk” hunting.

Species include: Baboon, Black backed jackal, Blue wildebeest, Cheetah, Damara dik-dik, Duiker, Eland, Giraffe, Gemsbuck, Hartmann's zebra, Klipspringer, Kudu, black faced Impala, Leopard, Ostrich, Red Hartebeest, Springbuck, Steenbuck, Warthog.

SafariBwana's "Rough Hunts "
I've always looked to those way out places where only the hardy survive as the ultimate test of a hunters will - not from the point of hardship, but rather from their acceptance that hunting in a vast open uninhabited wilderness is enough reward and the trophy is merely an achievement not a must have.

We offer you the opportunity to experience our Africa in a rougher style, a more authentic or rustic manner of safari – nevertheless a true challenge and adventure. By law we cannot allow you to hunt without a PH so we provide the basics, the very basics and then the rest is up to you. A good PH, a land cruiser, some rudimentary camping equipment, first aid supplies, clean water and dry goods for your trip – naturally trackers and helpers are also present. Sounds very much like a camping set up BUT here's the difference – there is no set camp nor a campsite, no roads where you will be heading, it is just virgin territory with a healthy population of game to seek.

We have over 900,000 acres of open undeveloped hunting land for you to explore – at your own time and your own risks and decisions – bring your own gear, pre order food supplies, load up and head into the bush!
