Hunting in South Africa

Hunting is the practice of seeking, pursuing and capturing, or killing wildlife or feral animals.
Recreationally hunted species are generally referred to as the "game" and are usually mammals and birds. A person participating in a hunt is a hunter or (less commonly) huntsman; a natural area used for hunting is called a game reserve; and an experienced hunter who helps organize a hunt

What Is a Guided Hunt?

A guided hunt is led by a local hunter who is familiar with the animals and topography of a certain area and serves as a guide for a specific trip. As a participant, you would pay a fee for the guide. In return, the guide provides gear, planning, logistical support, and insight into the local game and hunting regulations.  by ReserveAmerica


What to Look for in a Guided Hunt?

Asking an outfitter the right questions upfront can keep your dream hunt on track.
A guided hunt is a team effort. The client helps finance the operation, and the guide or outfitter provides logistical support and intimate knowledge of the game, the area, and any regulations. Under the best circumstances, a guided hunt works out well for both parties. Sometimes the hunt becomes a yearly event. And in the best cases, that once-in-a-lifetime hunt produces a once-in-a-lifetime animal, and the partnership turns into a lasting friendship.

"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."
