  • Baboon hunting is challenging and often involves very difficult terrain.They are troop animals and post sentries that are continually alert for dangers. A warning call will put the whole troop into retreat immediately. They have incredibly sharp eye-sight that misses no movement or oddity.To bag a baboon takes patience and accurate shooting.

  • Black wildebeest are herd animals that are naturally prevalent on the central plains of South Africa. After nearly being hunted to extinction in the early 1900's, conservation efforts have increased their numbers to sustainable levels.  Income derived from hunting is an important contributor to the conservation efforts of the black wildebeest.

  • The common Blesbuck is a medium sized buck that live in herds on the open grasslands and are primarily grazing animals. Blesbuck are one of the most commonly hunted antelope in South Africa. They favour open plains with water available. Due to the terrain, faster shooting calibers with a relatively flat trajectory are best, as the shots are mostly taken from a long distance.

  • The Blesbuck is a medium sized antelope hailing from the South African. They live in herds on the open grasslands and are primarily grazing animals. White blesbok are a colour variation on the common blesbuck. They are native to the same regions as the common blesbuck, and are hunted in the same manner.

     

  • Hunting blue duiker is an exceptionally challenging endeavour. It is one of Africa’s smallest antelope and weighs a mere 10 to 12 pounds. Its habitat is dense coastal and inland forests. They are solitary animals, very silent and difficult to spot. They will run for cover at any threat of danger. Hunting them is best done using a shotgun. This is due to the fact that they are so hard to see and move extremely rapidly, making using a rifle an almost impossible feat.

  • Blue wildebeest are a very popular species that can be hunted on the plains. Traditionally walk-and-stalk is the preferred method of hunting. Special care must be taken on the final approach to a herd, as most members are on the alert and any movement will startle them and prevent a successful hunt. Blue Wildebeest are grazers and move in herds of anything from 25-50 animals in open terrain. Grass is their preferred food, but they will also eat shrubs and leaves if grass is in short supply.

  • The bontebok is a very handsome animal and makes a unique trophy the serious hunter. It prefers the open plains, occasionally venturing into bush. Bontebok move in herds, feeding mostly on grass and need water daily. The best time to hunt them is between February and October when grass is plentiful.  They can be hunted outside this period, but are a more difficult target,  as they tend to frequent the more open and mountainous areas.

  • The Cape Bushbuck is a sub-species, and they are the smallest of South Africa's spiral-horned antelope. They can be elusive as they are solitary animals, only pairing up with females for mating. The males tend to favour thick vegetation and can be found late afternoon in the thick bush surrounding river courses.  Bushbuck have been known to lie in ambush of hunters if wounded, so caution should be exercised.

  • Bush pig are a medium sized species of pig, the hunting of which mostly takes place at night, as they are nocturnal animals. Their preferred habitat is dense overgrowth. They are not especially attractive animals and have long, shaggy coats of varying colours, with short tusks on their upper and lower jaw. While they are not normally aggressive, a wounded or trapped animal can cause injury to an unwary hunter, so backup is recommended when hunting them.

  • One of the Big Five, buffalo prefer densely wooded savanna areas, making them difficult to spot.  This often means taking a shot at reasonably close range (30M-80M). They are best hunted in the Winter months when the leaves have fallen from the vegetation. Hunt between June and September.

  • The Cape Grysbok is a small, shy antelope with a thick-set body and a coarse coat of hair. Only males have horns. They are usually solitary, lying up during the heat of day and grazing and browsing at night.

  • The caracal, known locally as the 'rooikat', is a smallish cat similar to the lynx with fur varying from a light to dark brick red. They sport a short tail and prominent ear tufts. The males and females are similar in size and they are mostly nocturnal.  Their prey is primarily birds, small mammals and reptiles, but they are capable of hunting medium-sized antelope as well.

  • The name of this carnivore is somewhat misleading, as it is related to the mongoose family. It preys on birds and small mammals, as well as opportunistically on insects, amphibians, reptiles and fruit. It is nocturnal and very shy, thus very rarely seen. When startled, it gives off a distinct smell from glands near its anus.

  • The common duiker, also known as the grey duiker, are normally taken opportunistically when hunting other species of antelope.They are one of the smaller species of antelope species, and survive due to the fact that they are exceptionally alert to any potential threat.  Often the opportunity to bag  one will be when it is startled, and flees, dodging and side-stepping away from any perceived threat.

     

  • The common reedbuck is a beautiful medium sized antelope that frequents wetlands and permanent water sources. It is active during the late afternoon, evening and early morning.  It mostly avoids the heat of day, where it will bed down in long grass.  It will remain still for as long as possible in the face of a potential threat and will often present only a brief target from when it flushed from its hiding place.

     

  • Crocodiles hunting presents a very testing and enjoyable hunt for a marksman in search of an impressive full mount trophy. They have an acute sense of smell, reasonably good eyesight and can sense vibrations through the ground when they are laying on the river banks.  Successfully hunting one will probably entail setting up a blind in a good position near a suitable animal, or sneaking up to a shooting position.  Accurate shooting is essential, as a wounded animal will retreat to the water, and their carcasses do not float.  It is not advisable to enter crocodile inhabited water in search of a possible trophy.

  • The eland is South Africa's largest antelope. Weighing in at up to 2000 pounds, it is the largest spiral-horned antelope.  They graze during the day in open woodland and scrub veld in herds of 8 -12 animals, although larger herds are not uncommon.  It is tricky getting into a good shooting position as they take flight at the first sign of danger.  Good rifle choice and accurate shooting is essential if you want to avoid tracking a wounded animal over a long distance.  A lot of specimens are taken at shorter range in cover.

  • The Livingstone eland was brought to South Africa from neighbouring countries, and a good trophy animal is somewhat larger than his local counterpart.  They possess large, impressive horns, with white body stripes that tend to fade on mature bulls.  Both sexes have horns, so care should be taken when selecting a target.  They are challenging to hunt, as they can cover vast distances in search of food, and are not territorial.  Fences do not pose too much of an obstacle, as they can comfortably clear a 10 foot obstacle.
