Lion Hunting In South Africa

Description

Hunt lion and lioness on a 12,000 acre concession in the North West province near the border of Botswana. This spot and stalk hunt is one of the most exiting hunts we offer. The prime habitat is very sandy and perfectly suited for predator and prey. The evening before the day of the hunt, just before dark, they broom the roads. Early the morning of the hunt we drive on the roads and search for tracks. Once tracks are located you will spot and stalk till you find the lions and close in for the shot. This safari is the ultimate adrenaline rush, lions can at any time be behind any bush. These big cats hunt and live off the healthy populations of Cape buffalo, sable, kudu, impala, and other species of plains game that inhabit this prime concession. Notes: no hunting on Sundays. Lion/lioness' currently not importable into the USA.

Client Testimonial

“This was my third African safari and by far the best! Outstanding trophy quality, terrific guides and trackers – taking my kudu was a 4-hour stalk and was the most amazing tracking I have ever seen. Everything else on the trip was first class and flawless, great accommodations, superb food. It felt like I came as a client but left as a friend. I’m already planning my next African safari.” P.
