Our safari team aims to deliver a unique hunting adventure with an exceptional personal touch. We want to provide you with the best service from the moment we meet you at OR Tambo International Airport until we drop you off again.

It is our service philosophy to provide you with the best trip to South Africa. Therefore, we organize your travel from the moment you arrive, the accommodation, the professional hunters and trackers, additional fun activities, as well as the organization of your trophies’ taxidermy.

It is hassle-free, and all you need to do is let us know which dates, what you want to do and hunt, and the rest we will plan. All that is left to do for you is book your airplane tickets, it’s that simple!

What our clients tell

Our philosophy is to provide a professional & personalized hunting safari experience to hunt African Game with pride. We ensure that our hunting efforts are in line with conservationist efforts of the Game concession. We firmly believe in fair chase hunting, where you will pursue the animal through the beautiful and rugged Savannah terrain.
