Sable antelope are arguably one of the most handsome of the antelope. Their short jet-black coat, definitive mane standing straight up along the length of its neck in contrast to striking bright white markings on the head and face, and sweeping scimitar-shaped horns make this one of the most sought-after of African antelope.
These hunts are conducted either on our low-fenced properties, where the sable have grown up and move around unhindered, or on one of our large, 65 square mile private reserves, wherever quota is available. The average size will be 40″ and we have recently had some 44–45″ bulls taken.
This is a fair chase hunt.
Your Safari will take you through the Eastern Cape Region, offering the widest range of game for the trophy hunter, as well as the hunter out for the experience. This outfitter is situated on a private ranch in the game-rich Camdeboo area in the Karoo, an unfenced working stock ranch that forms part of a family trust of close to 30,000 acres. This is added to their existing neighboring concessions of 42,000 acres of unfenced private game reserve, and two other private reserves each being 37,000 acres of abundant game, including free-roaming 4 of the Big 5. This gives them a total unfenced hunting area of 190,000 acres. These properties have most of the 30+ huntable species of Southern Africa within an hour’s drive of the Main Lodge.
The lodge is a 200-year-old converted farmstead, situated in the Central Karoo Region that has been in the outfitter’s family for six generations. It is very secluded at the foot of the mountains, nestled in the wild African bushveld in a mountainous amphitheater in the Sneeuberg Mountain range, with no modern hindrances and disturbances. It’s also very eco-friendly, with a solar-powered electric system in 220 volts, so that it can accommodate all modern conveniences. The wifi system will keep you in touch with all your loved ones. The camp uses fresh clear spring water of a mineral quality that is pumped from an underground aquifer. Bottled water is also supplied. The lodge is serviced daily with your laundry ironed and folded on your bed each evening when you return. The lodge sleeps up to 8 guests. The guests are treated to traditional South African cuisine. There is a a large garden and pool area to relax in. This is an ideal getaway for a group of family or friends, or simply that quiet holiday on your own. Sit and stare at the stars, listening to the hoot of the African Owl, while sitting at the large open fire pit. This is also a great place for coming together at night to socialize with friends and discuss the day’s adventures.
After a delicious South African supper with red wine, you can retire to your room which is furnished with a comfortable king-size bed or 2 single beds, feather duvets, and pillows to ensure a good night’s rest after a long day in the bush. Linen and towels are provided. The ensuite bathrooms have a double basin set, shower, and flush toilet, all with hot and cold water.
They are especially family-oriented with a number of different packages to choose from. They are more than happy to cater to spouses, youth, families, or just your best hunting buddy. Teaching and promoting conservation through selective sport hunting and encouraging observers to join in the hunt are embedded deep in their roots.
Nestled in the Camdeboo mountain range, between Graaff-Reinett—one of the oldest towns in South Africa, and Somerset East. This region was once hunted by the ancient San tribes, or Bushmen as they later became known, who have left their mark by means of rock art and artifacts. A small museum has been erected in their honor, as well as all the local archaeological and paleontological finds, all situated close by. The world-famous Addo Elephant National Park and Cradock Mountain Zebra National Park are both only a 1 ½ drive from camp and a great day out for observers.
