This 5 Star Eastern Cape 6 animal plains game safari package will take place north of Port Elizabeth about midway between the towns of Grahamstown and Graff-Reinet. This is a great value, as the animals in the package include 5 large animals that most hunters traveling to Africa want to take. The lodge offers true 5-star luxury and the outfitter has substantially lowered his normal daily rates of $520 / day to create this affordable package.

The privately owned concession is located in the heart of the Karoo, north of the Klein Winterhoek Mountains on the plains of the Carndeboo. The hunting concession consists of 44,000 acres of mixed grassy plateaus, acacia thickets and shrubland. Home to 50 species of animals including the big five, this is a true hunting paradise.
THE PLAINS GAME SAFARI
A typical plains game hunting safari at this outfitter will have you leaving the lodge in the early morning in a fully rigged 4x4 hunting vehicle looking for suitable trophies. When a suitable trophy is spotted, the hunting party will leave the vehicle behind and your professional hunter and tracker will guide you to the most suitable position to take a clear shot.
The outfitter offers multi-weapon hunting and offers rifle, bow, crossbow and black powder hunting. There is a battery of rental rifles available for hire for those who wish to avoid the hassles of traveling with firearms:
The concession and immediate area features 50 huntable species. In addition to traditional plains game, animals that are not featured on the typical hunting concessions in South Africa include:
- Barbary Sheep
- Livingstone Eland
- Red Lechwe
- Common Reedbuck
- Cape Mountain Zebra
- Golden Wildebeest
- Arabian Oryx
- Golden Oryx

Your PH is experienced in bow and crossbow hunting and your professional hunter and tracker will coach you through the veld to ensure you have a successful hunt. This outfitter offers walk and stalk hunting for all species including the Big Five. They will use hunting vehicles to locate the animal and then hike into a 40 m radius from the animal to take the shot. Most bow / crossbow shots will be taken from 20 meters or less.
