The Karoo, a malaria free space of rugged mountains and endless savannah plains. A place where the land meets the sky and all your African hunting dreams are fulfilled.
Karoo Wild Safaris promises an exceptional plains game hunting safari. Family owned and managed, we have extensive knowledge in the hunting and hospitality fields. We offer hunters, couples and families a hunting and vacation experience of a lifetime.
We only accommodate a limited number of hunters and guests offering you our personal attention throughout your safari with us. We still believe in the adventure of hunting, the thrill of walking and stalking an animal, of discovering something new and unknown. We like it wild and our properties are large wildlife areas with no internal fences.

Hunting experience at Karoo Wild Safaris: A typical day’s plains game hunting begins with a mug of coffee at daybreak followed by a light breakfast. Thereafter the hunting party set out in the hunting vehicle in search of prey. Our terrain and hunting ethos favour the "walk and stalk" method of hunting. Depending on the fitness level of the hunter and the species being hunted, we also occasionally wait at a favourable spot for antelope to move out into the open to graze, usually at late afternoon. We are committed to providing our clients with a memorable African experience and your hunting experience is as important to us as the trophies you take home. All hunts are accompanied by a coolbox with snacks and refreshments. A packed lunch is enjoyed in the bush or at the lodge. We hunt at your pace, it’s your adventure and we encourage our clients to savor every moment of the hunt. We cater to the needs of our clients, from the young boy on his first safari to the most experienced hunter. Families are welcome on our hunting safaris. Click here for quick link country guide.
