Exciting Fundraising Auction Ideas

If you’re looking for an epic big game hunting trip of a lifetime, look no further. On this exciting adventure, you will Hunt tens of thousands of acres of Veld (grassland) in the Limpopo or Free State Provinces of South Africa. Enjoy lodging with all the amenities of home, including gourmet meals, local beer, wine, laundry service, Wi-Fi, and more.  Your hunt is good for the 2022, 2023, or 2024 South Africa hunting seasons.

Plains Game Hunting

A typical day will begin with a full breakfast, a morning trip into the field to hunt, a relaxing lunch back at the lodge, and another afternoon plains-game hunting experience. The day is completed with sundowners (cocktails) around the boma (fireplace sitting area), appetizers, and dinner with courses inspired by the local South African culture with fresh game, chicken, beef and vegetables, and local desserts.  

Lodge All-Inclusive

Enjoy a 7-night stay in a hunting lodge designed with the American hunter in mind.  Each hunter or couple will have a single occupancy room and bathroom. Savor locally inspired gourmet meals, superb South African wine, and local beer in the main dining area. Relax by the boma and share stories about your successful day of hunting. The main lodge is located in Vaalwater, in the Limpopo province of South Africa.

Hunt thousands of South African bushveld acres for up to 45 plus Plains game and dangerous game species. The most popular time to hunt is late May through the end of August, when temperatures are cooler. However, February through April is warmer as well as October and November. Therefore, the hunting season runs from February through November. Since South Africa is below the equator, the seasons are opposite of those in the United States.

The second hunt of the day starts around 2:00 pm to dusk. Then back to the Lodge for happy hour, Hors D’oeuvres, a fantastic South African dinner, and a good night’s sleep.
