Hunting around Cape Town and the Western Cape

Experience the Western Cape on foot. World renowned for its biodiversity, this area is endowed with an abundance of bird, animal and plant life. The terrain ranges from rugged mountains to semi-desert Karoo, dune thickets to Fynbos, grassy wetlands to forests. A kaleidoscope of spectacular wild beauty and contrasts.

Stalk the shy and ever elusive Vaal Rhebuck, with its soft, grey, rabbit like hair and snow white tail, visible only in flight. Easily identified by the oversized pitch black nose and enormous ears, and one of the trickiest of all South African antelope to stalk.

Follow a magnificent Fallow Dear Stag in rut. Hear the roars and responses from fellow suitors, in full battleship colours. Stalk downwind and out of sight, from the ever alert hinds, and edge closer while he moves in and around his harem.

Pick up the early morning tracks of an Eland bull or slog it out after a moving herd. A monster bull in the mix. Maintain your pace to keep up with the herd or leopard crawl into position for a shot on this huge framed animal, the largest antelope in South Africa.

These are but a few encounters of the wonderful animals of the Western Cape.

A Hunting Safari from Cape Town will present you with experiences, seen nowhere else in the world. And the proximity to Cape Town International Airport make all travelling very accessible

Hunting Safaris

Hunting Safaris around Cape Town are personalised to suit your individual requirements. You may be a discerning collector of trophy animals or a hunter wanting to share the full safari experience with your family. Each and every safari is different, and I make every effort to fulfill your dreams.

Rowland Ward and SCI

Trophies are often excellent and both SCI and Rowland Ward trophies are regularly attained. However, your success is ultimately measured, not in trophies, but in the enjoyment and pleasure of your experience with us, on your hunting safari.

Photography Outings

The Western Cape region including Cape Town and its surrounding areas, offer extraordinary opportunities for photography of nature and landscape, presenting breathtaking images for your personal collection. We place you in fantastic surroundings, for photos that are unique and beautiful.

"The best thing about hunting and fishing,' the Old Man said, 'is that you don't have to actually do it to enjoy it. You can go to bed every night thinking about how much fun you had twenty years ago, and it all comes back clear as moonlight."
