This is a highly discounted 10 day / 10 animal hunting safari package in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. The hunt will be guided by a well-known outfitter that is located near Queenstown. He has 55,000 acres (126 sq., miles) of prime habitat that has many thousands of animals living on it. The Eastern Cape is known for its wide diversity and quantities of trophy plains game animals, and this concession fits that description well. The diversity of animals here is simply incredible, with over 60 species of animals inhabiting this game-rich concession. Many exotics species such as scimitar horned oryx, Pere David deer, Nubian ibex, red lechwe, hog deer, Livingstone eland and many more have also been released. There is a resident herd of Cape buffalo roaming this vast concession and there are also white rhino present. Black rhino may be introduced here in the near future.
The outfitter also has a second 4-star lodge just two hours away, where much of the kudu, impala and warthog hunting will occur. If these animals are in your package, you will relocate to this area which is 2 hours away and offers prime trophy hunting for these species. This vast hunting area is over 300,000 acres, which is 652 sq. miles of hunting area!
THE HUNTING SAFARI AREAS
The first part of this hunting safari will take place on 55,000 acres in the Eastern Cape of South Africa near Queenstown. The area features natural wild animals that have adapted to the conditions of the Eastern Cape. The main lodge is a 2-hour drive from East London. The terrain consists of a mix of mountains, valleys and savanna. Once your main species have been taken you will drive 2 hours to an area north of the main lodge to continue hunting for trophy kudu, impala and warthog.
SAFARI HUNTING METHODS
The first part of this safari will primarily be done by driving and spotting or driving and then hiking on foot to spots with a good view and then glassing for trophies. Once a desirable trophy animal is located, a plan will be made and then you and your PH will begin stalking the animal on foot until a suitable shot is provided. Pop-up blinds may be used at times for setting up on waterholes or food sources.
You should be in average to good shape ( 2-3 on a 5 scale) to be successful on this safari. The camp does feature one wheelchair accessible room and the outfitter can accommodate 1 wheelchair hunter at a time.
The second part of this hunting safari will take place 2 hours north of the main concession. Here you will hunt your kudu, impala and warthog on a huge concession. You may end up sitting on a waterhole to take your warthog, as it is one of the most reliable methods when it is dry. The kudu and impala will be hunted by driving, glassing and then stalking on foot. Kudu hunting will be by spot and stalk, glassing and possibly sitting over oranges, as kudu just love oranges!
The Eastern Cape produces some exceptional trophy quality. The outfitter’s Eastern Cape Kudu’s average around 46’’ – 47” with some bigger bulls exceeding 50” being taken annually. The gemsbok in this area average between 36” – 39”. Trophy quality rivals that of other areas in South Africa, with kudu being the exception, as there are no natural greater southern kudu in the Eastern Cape.
Other animals are available per the price list below:
This hunt is available from March – November. Prime time for Kudu is late April – early June!
THE 4-STAR SAFARI LODGES
This hunt will be conducted from a 4-Star permanent camp nestled in a valley and featuring a swimming pool and a great view of the surrounding hills. The food and beverages are fabulous and dinner will be followed by the hunters gathering around the fire under the southern stars. The large modern rooms feature in-suite bathrooms with showers. The lodge has permanent electrical power. Both cell phone service and internet access is available at the lodge for those of you that want to stay in touch while on safari.
The main lodge can accommodate groups of up to 15 hunters, although groups of 10 or less are preferred.
A second lodge used for kudu, impala and warthog hunting is also a luxury lodge and features in-suite bathrooms, cell phone and internet service. This secondary lodge features 6 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 6 hunters at a time.
Once your package is complete except for kudu, warthog and impala, you will relocate 2 hours north to a massive hunting area that also features a 4-star lodge. Here you will hunt the remainder of your plains game package.
