• The majestic sable is one of the most sought after trophies on any African hunt.  The distinctive scimitar-shaped horns and colouring make them one of the most beautiful antelope in Africa.  They are mostly active during the early mornings and late afternoons.  Their colouring makes them relatively easy to spot even in vegetation.  Despite the fact that they are somewhat expensive to hunt, their sheer magnificence makes them worth the price.  Care should be exercised in choosing a specimen, as both males and females have horns.

  • The black springbok is not a sub-species of the common springbok, but a colour variation.  Due to their relative rarity compared to their brothers, they are more sought after as a trophy.  Expect to shoot over open terrain when hunting them.  They are not very large or especially hard to bring down, so a smaller caliber will suffice.  Springbok are indigenous to South Africa, making them on of the must-have trophies of a hunt here.


  • The common springbok is South Africa's national animal, and is one of the more common species of antelope.  They are prevalent in all the open plains areas of the country, and do well in the more arid areas, as they obtain all the moisture they need from their food. You should be hunting them with a high velocity, flat trajectory caliber.  Their exceptional eyesight means that it will be challenging to get into place to take a good shot in the terrain they frequent.  They have very striking markings, which makes them a beautiful trophy.

  • The copper springbok is a colour variation of the common springbok.  This makes it more sought after as a trophy.  Both sexes have horns, with those of the males being longer and heavier.  They are social creatures and form quite large herds. They will drink water when it is available, but can obtain sufficient moisture from the vegetation they eat, making them well adapted to the more arid regions.

  • The white springbok is variation in colouring of the common springbok.  They share the same habitat and behaviour as the common springbok.  They are social animals and will bunch up when threatened.  They display a form of behaviour called "pronking", which happens when they are running and will then leap into the air with stiff legs and hooves bunched.  They are found on all the open plains of South Africa. They are both browsers and grazers and will alter their diet as the habitat changes.

  • Steenbok are a small antelope species that are common throughout South Africa. Only the males have horns.  They are solitary animals that are not dependent on a primary water source, getting their hydration from their food.  They are not commonly hunted specifically as a trophy, and would tend to be a target of opportunity. Primarily active early morning and evenings, they are browsers but also graze on fresh grass shoots. They lie flat in the grass to avoid detection, making them hard to spot.

  • The Tsessebe is a darkish brown herd animal with black blaze on its face.  It has a somewhat odd appearance, with its shoulders being higher than its hind quarters.  This, however, does not prevent them from being the fastest antelope on the continent.  They can be stalked early mornings, or ambushed when they are seeking shade.  They have a tendency to be inquisitive, so will not run far after being startled before stopping to get a second look.  Both sexes have horns.


  • The Vaal rhebuck is only found in South Africa.  They are relatively scarce, making them very sought after by trophy hunters.  They frequent mountainous areas and may just be the most challenging antelope to walk and stalk hunt.  They are very agile, and possess an exceptionally keen instinct for danger.  Their eyesight is second to none, and if startled, will run for a long distance, remaining on the alert for a long period of time thereafter.  The prospective hunter should be physically fit and able to hit a target at a long distance. A flat shooting caliber is recommended.


  • Warthog are common throughout Southern Africa, and can be found in almost all habitats other than thick forests and desert.  They are medium sized  members of the pig family.  Both sexes have tusks, with those of the male being much more prominent.  Their meat is delicious and they are a favourite with most of the big cats, who prey on them.  They are found around waterholes and pans.  From downwind, it is possible to stalk to within a very close distance of a warthog.

  • Waterbuck are a large speices of antelope with a distinct white circle around their tails. The males are slightly larger and heavier than the females.  They are social animals and congregate in nursery or bachelors herds. As the name implies, they are found near water sources.  Their habitat preference of scrub and savanna near to water sources brings them into competition with humans a lot, causing population numbers to drop over the last while.

  • The white rhinoceros, largest of the five species of rhinoceros, weighs on average around 2 tons for the mails, slightly less for females. It has a massive body and large head, a short neck and broad chest.

  • The Burchell's zebra is common throughout the plains and open grasslands of Southern Africa.  They are grazers but will also browse in wooded areas should the need arise.  They are large equids, with the mature males weighing up to 800 pounds. They are dependent on water and must drink daily, so they will always be found in proximity to water sources. The herd will consist of a dominant stallion with mares and foals. Young males get evicted form the herd when they mature and will live in bachelors herds until they can challenge for a herd of their own.

  • Hatrmann's mountain zebra is a subspecies of the mountain zebra.  They are equids with distinctive black and white stripes, are sought after for their hides as trophies.  The Hartmann's zebra occurs in smallish herds and favours mountainous terrain, and as such are exceptionally good climbers.  They are slightly smaller than their plains cousins and are also adapted to the more arid conditions they are native to.
