Cancellation Hunts in South Africa
This page of our website will list cancellation hunts, last-minute hunts and specials in South Africa that are currently being offered. For hunters that are looking to save money while still achieving their African safari dreams, these cancellation and special hunts offer a solution. Special offers that are available will also be listed in this section of the website. Many of these special offers will only be available for a short time, as they are subject to extremely limited quantities.
Cancellation hunts in South Africa offer the hunter trying to save money on an African hunting safari an excellent opportunity to achieve that goal. Cancellation hunts in South Africa come about due to hunters cancelling their booked hunts with short notice, which makes it difficult for the outfitter to find a replacement hunter. As many of the outfitters that Discount African Hunts books hunts for will offer rescheduled dates to its customers, these short notice and last minute hunts may be offered even though the original party’s deposit was not forfeited. If the outfitter did retain the defaulting party’s deposit, the hunt will typically be offered at the reduced price after subtracting the retained deposit from the regular price of the hunt. This can provide savings of up to 50% for the sharp eyed buyer.
These cancellation hunts in South Africa do not happen often, as most people committing significant amounts of cash towards an African hunting safari plan on going in spite of potential obstacles. Cancellation hunts in South Africa offer savings, but do lock the secondary buyer into accepting the time slot that the original purchaser had selected. A good understanding of the seasonal success rates should be acquired before committing to cancellation hunt in South Africa.
Special hunts are hunts that outfitters may offer due to openings in their hunting calendars, excess animals that they may need to remove from one of their hunting concessions or just good opportunities that they were presented with by concession owners. Usually, these special hunts are of a very limited availability and may sell out quickly. So do your homework, but don’t wait too long or your special or cancellation hunt in South Africa may be gone when you go to book it.

"In August 2014 I took a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts in the Northwest Province of South Africa. The PH's worked hard to customize the hunt for me as I wanted a challenging stalk ending with taking the lioness at close range by an open sighted double rifle. They exceeded my expectations as 12 miles of tracking ended with me shooting the highly agitated lioness at a distance of 25 yards with a couple of rounds of 450 NE".
"I highly recommend a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts."
"I booked the hunt through John Martins, the owner of Discount African Hunts. It was a smooth transaction and he provided me with good and accurate information."
"This 10 day package safari was a fantastic experience. I learned many new hunting skills and made new friends. I would go back and do it again in a heartbeat. I'm going back. That says it all. Thanks to Discount African Hunts for setting me up on a fantastic plains game safari."
"I spent weeks visiting websites for outfitters in Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, comparing pre-made packages and regular fees. In the end, for a 7-day, six animal hunt with my son as an observer/hunter, John Martins had the best price."
