Richard Holmes Safaris is a fourth generation family business specialising in South African hunting safaris with many, many years of hunting experience.
We own our Ranches, the camp and the Lodge as well as the hunting areas, named Clifton and Stirling ranches which total 8,500 acres with over 2500 head of WILD game and 22 Species. Most of your hunting will be done on our own property / ranches. On Some days hunts are on selected to be suitable other private ranches we call concessions, and these are all on private land here, like ours and our concessions, you or your group are the only hunters there because access is allowed by invitation only and is exclusive, so you won't run into any other hunters, even if another group is hunting there, your group will be seperate from the other, but this very rarely happens, as the ranches are so huge. Our Concessions we hunt are only in the immediate area of our property, max one and a half ours drive to get there. We don't hunt further away than that from our base/our ranches.
We are based in the malaria-free Eastern Cape Province of South Africa which is a Mecca for hunting Safaris in South Africa. The areas we hunt have a large variety of game species and game is abundant, WILD and in Established breeding herds, so we dont need to add game onto our ranches ever because our numbers are full up and the supply of game availabe is therefore mostly constant. The Eastern Cape is unique due to some rare species of game found only here.
Our plains game hunting safaris are ideal for both experienced hunters as well as for novice hunters. Our Professional Hunters are very experienced and will ensure that both the experienced hunter and the novice hunter will enjoy their hunting safari.
