South Africa

Hunting season is all year round. Best time is from March to November

South Africa is a country situated on the Southern Tip of the African continent.It shares borders with Namibia and Botswana on the Northeast, and with Zimbabwe and Mozambique on the Northwest. Lesotho and Swaziland are independant states within south African territory. With a area of 1 219 090 Km², it is almost double the size of Texas. With its modern infrastructures throughout the country, South Africa has the strongest economy in Africa. The Soccer World Cup will be hosted in South Africa in 2010!

A land of contrasts

It’s a special place, inviting, magical, where everything is big –  immense even.
A world in one country. Contrast is the first word which comes to mind about South Africa, for the rich diversity of its landscape, people and cultures.
Imagine breathtaking canyons, jungles, mystic deserts, metropole, deserted beaches, verdant vineyards, mountains, bush. Nature is alive, beautiful and untouched. The country is subdivided into 9 provinces, each of them with its unique fauna, flora and culture.

Diversity” is probably the most accurate image one could give to the Eastern Cape region. It is as diverse in flora and fauna as it is in cultural and political history. Nelson Mandela has his home here, and from the coastal cities to the rural inland areas, the Eastern Cape is famous for its natural beauty and friendly people.

As well as enjoying the tranquil and malaria-free game viewing at our lodge, you can explore the golden beaches, magnificent marine life and sub-tropical forests of the Eastern Cape. No vaccination or shots required; consult your physician and www.cdc.gov for recommended shots (such as tetanus and hepatitis).

It is from here your hunting adventure will begin. We have, within very short distances, very diverse habitats that support many species that can be hunted. The terrain ranges from coastal bushveld to mountainous terrain, depending on the species to be hunted.

Grand Safari also offers tourism extensions in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. Program and quote on request.

SAFARI OPTIONS

We hunt on various hunting concessions, from open areas to fenced private game reserves. We have close to 950,000 acres of hunting ground; choice of area is made upon requested species to be hunted. This is a good introduction to hunting African game, under the supervision of very ethical professional hunters. Being a first timer or a well-experienced hunter, South Africa will bring you what you are looking for, a great hunting experience and some trophies not to be found anywhere else in Africa.
