South Africa Hunting Trip for Six Hunters with $2,000 Trophy Fee Credit per Hunter

South African Hunting Trip for Six Hunters

When you think of safari, you first think of wild Africa. It’s home to lions roaming free, breathtaking sunsets that stretch far beyond the horizon, and the stillness and calm that only the motherland can give you.

If you plan a South Africa hunting trip, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for the Big 5. In addition, the tantalizing local wine and food will excite your taste buds.

If you are looking for an epic South Africa hunting adventure, look no further. During this once-in-a-lifetime trip, you will hunt on tens of thousands of veld (grassland) acres in the Free State or Limpopo provinces of South Africa. Enjoy bush-inspired lodging with all the luxuries, such as gourmet meals, local beer and wine, daily laundry services, and Wi-Fi. This hunting trip is created for six hunters during the 2025 to 2027 South Africa big game hunting seasons.

South Africa Hunting Safari

South Africa boasts an incredible variety of big game species. So whether you choose to hunt the quick-moving Impala or majestic, black and white-faced Gemsbuck, your game-hunting Africa trip will forever be one of your favorites.

Classic African Plains Game Animals

Thousands of hunters travel to South Africa to hunt big game. But, with so many diverse animals, how do you know which one to choose? What do you want to hunt?

  • Kudu
  • Warthog
  • Blue Wildebeest
  • Impala
  • Gemsbuck (Oryx)
  • Blesbok

If you don’t see your favorite animals for your Plains game hunting Africa trip, don’t worry! There are 39 other game species available. So, if you don’t get everything you want on the first hunting trip, return for a second or third hunt!

South Africa Hunting Cost

You must know your expectations and budget to estimate your African safari hunting cost. There are different prices for different animals. Clients will spend roughly $3,500 to $5,500 in trophy fees for 3 – 5 animals.

Some clients book their South Africa hunting trip two years in advance, so they have time to save their trophy fees. Then there are the other expenses, such as airline tickets, trophy animal export, and gratuities, to consider. Taxidermy in South Africa can take between 9 and 11 months. However, if you decide to dip and pack, you will only receive the skull, horns, and capes in 9 – 11 months and then have to wait another year or so before being able to display your trophies.

Non-Hunting Observer Activities

You are in for a treat if you bring loved ones and worry about non-hunting observer activities. Big game roams the vast open fields and waits for a photo opportunity. Go on a traditional African safari (game drive) in private or national parks. You can see the world-famous Big 5 and learn all about the fauna and flora in the area. See animals up close and personal at animal rehabilitation centers where you can walk with elephants or feed wild cats. You can even meet Jessica, the hippo!

Learn about the many South African cultures and tribes. Visit villages, orphanages, and local schools to get an authentic African cultural experience, see how others live, and get educated. This is also a way to give back to the beautiful communities that host us.

Oranges, pinks, and reds are painted across the sky for a sight that can only be seen in the bushveld. All guests will enjoy a classical braai (barbeque) and local cocktails, and the big starlit African sky shouldn’t be experienced alone. This is a magical experience that will live in your memories forever. There are ample non-hunting observer activities to keep everyone busy and entertained.

South Africa Hunting Lodge

The South African hunting lodge is beautifully designed to suit the American hunter. Enjoy a luxurious 7-night stay in ultimate comfort with a traditional African ambiance.

When is the best time for a South Africa hunting safari?

The hunting season is from February to November. Since the country is south of the equator, the seasons are opposite to that of the US. A popular time to hunt in South Africa is from late May until late August. It’s the peak of winter, and the temperatures are cool. February to April is the Fall and gives you warmer weather, and September to November is the Spring and is hotter.
