This is an unbelievable price for a trophy Greater Southern Kudu hunting safari in South Africa’s Waterberg Mountains! This Five-Star South African outfitter has put together a package for the hunter that wants to hunt a big kudu that others can only dream of. For those of you that want to get that special kudu of a lifetime, this is the outfitter that offers the best chance of getting it done on an ethical “fair chase” hunting safari. And they have made it more than affordable to bring your entire family along to experience the wonders of Africa while you are hunting.

The Trophy Kudu Hunting Safari Area

The hunting location for this trophy kudu hunting safari will take place in South Africa's Limpopo Province in the Waterberg Mountains. The nearest town is Vaalwater. The 5-Star hunting lodge is a 3-hour drive north of Johannesburg. A 10,000-acre privately-owned reserve featuring three 5-star lodges will be the base of operations for this hunt. This area is well known for the big kudu bulls it produces. 

This outfitter hunts on a mix of 160 farms which consist of over 500,000 acres. The head of hunting there was a police detective for the local area for 30 years and knows all of the farmers. Because of these relationships, this outfitter can hunt many properties that you would otherwise be unable to secure hunting rights to. This is one of the key locations that I send my hunters that are seeking a special trophy of a lifetime, especially big kudu!

During your 5-Star Kudu hunting safari in South Africa, you will stay in the magnificent 5-Star Leopard Lodge. The Leopard Lodge features 8 double bed luxurious accommodations featuring en-suite bathrooms.

Trophy Kudu Hunting Methods

Hunting methods for this 5-star trophy kudu hunting safari will consist of both driving and glassing for kudu on the hillsides and some early morning hikes up the mountains to get set up in strategic positions to glass for a trophy-class bull. The terrain is varied and has a good mixture of thornbush flats and hills that make perfect kudu habitats. Once a trophy bull is spotted, a stalking plan will be made to get you into a shooting position to take your trophy bull. Shots will range from 50 to 250 yards.

If you are hunting with a bow. Most of your trophy kudu hunting will be done from blinds situated on waterholes and feeding stations during the dry season.

Exceptional KuduTrophy Limpopo Kudu

Rifle Hunting the Kudu Rut

This hunt is available from March through November. The best time to hunt with a rifle is during the kudu rut. The kudu rut in this area is from late April until the middle of June. 

Bow Hunting for Trophy Kudu

If you are bow hunting, the best time for a trophy kudu is during the dry season, which runs from July through September. It is best to hunt near the new moon when hunting for a trophy kudu with a bow.

Hunting for a Trophy Bull Sable

If you are hunting with a rifle, you will likely drive until a suitable sable is spotted and then you will stalk on foot to within shooting range. If you are hunting your trophy sable with a bow or crossbow, you may hunt out of a blind, It is also possible that you will hunt the sable by spot and stalk on foot. The outfitter is confident that he can get you your trophy bull sable on this hunt!

"The hippo and croc hunt was good to great --  People make the hunt and from the booking agent to the outfitter YOU COULDN'T ask for a better hunt!  Very few hunting ads tell you what you will get and then deliver it with a smile and extras. Both ends are honest and great to deal with."

"John Martins tries his hardest to get you a great price and your animals with honest outfitters!"

"First, I wanted to tell you the buffalo hunt with the outfitter you booked me with was great! The PH took me to a farm where there was a good herd of buffalo and I shot a 40” old dagga boy. I could have taken another one a bit wider, 42”, with hard bosses but he did not have that old rough beat-up look I was after."

"Talk about dreams being handed to you!!  From John's recommendation to stay at the Afton Guest House to the outfitter he booked me with, I was treated like royalty.   Next year's hunt won't require research past his website.  Thanks John."
