Hunting

The Eastern Cape is an ideal area for introducing any first time hunter to a hunting safari in Africa as it is blessed with 6 of the 7 different biomes, thus giving the hunter a wide variety of game to choose from.

After being collected at the airport, your hunting destination is a 90 minute drive from Port Elizabeth.

When you go out hunting, you will be teamed up with a fully qualified Professional Hunter and his/her tracker.

Huntin’ ‘n’ Fishin’ Safaris, Africa, is partnered with a number of landowners based in the Greater Fish River Valley where we are proud to offer the hunter 21 species of antelope to hunt.

Vegetation in this area is predominantly thick Valley Bushveld, made up of Pork Bush (a nutritious succulent) and subtropical thickets that break up periodically into grassy plains. The more common species are: Kudu, Gemsbok, Impala, Blesbok, Warthog, Mountain Reedbuck, Springbok, Bushbuck, Grey Duiker, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Nyala, Cape Eland, Common Waterbuck and Burchells Zebra.

There are limited opportunities to hunt lion and buffalo in the Eastern Cape.

Most hunting is done using the spot and stalk method. We urge you to practice shooting from long tripod shooting sticks, as there is not always a convenient tree or fence post to rest on. Shooting distances vary from 80m to 300m depending on terrain and vegetation.

Huntin’ ‘n’ Fishin’ Safaris, Africa, along with its safari partners in Zimbabwe, offer you the opportunity to hunt in the UNFENCED traditional big game safari areas.
