Karoo Wild Safaris
Bisho, South Africa

The owner says

Choice of hunting outfitter and area is the most important decision you're going to make when planning your plains game hunting safari in South Africa. Below are some points to consider.

Diversity –The Eastern Cape boasts 6 out of 7 vegetation biomes and is the most ecologically diverse of South Africa’s provinces. This diversity in turn supports a large number of plains game species; from kudu in savannah bushveld, to klipspringer in the craggy mountain peaks and bushbuck in the coastal forests. The Eastern Cape offers an unrivalled variety of hunting safari opportunities.

Kudu – the area from Uitenhage to Steytlerville is acknowledged as having the highest density of kudu in the world. Every year, 25,000 kudu are hunted in the Eastern Cape. Karoo Wild Safaris enjoyed a 100% success rate for kudu in 2014, 2015 and 2016. During this period 23 out of 23 hunters who had a kudu on their wish list shot a trophy kudu, some chose to hunt a second one.

Owner run and managed / exclusivity – Karoo Wild Safaris is owner run and managed by myself, my wife Lindsay, trackers and lodge staff. We have a small and dedicated staff who love what they do. We only accommodate one hunter or hunting group at a time offering you our personal attention at all times. Besides our own property, we have numerous concessions in the nearby vicinity (160,000 acres) on which we have trophy hunting privileges. We're 5th generation Karoo settlers, our properties have been in our family since 1836.

Fair chase – We hunt by walk and stalk and spot and stalk. Your experience and enjoyment of your African safari is as important to us as the trophies you take home.

Hospitality – Haaspoort Lodge is a four star graded lodge situated in the heart of our main hunting property. It exudes a quiet luxury and is perfect for hunters and couples wanting a shared hunting vacation. Each thatched chalet is privately located with en-suite bedrooms, tea/coffee facilities and decks overlooking the African bush. Lindsay is able to take hunters wives and families on tours to see the local attractions.
