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.


"I had the hunting experience of a lifetime. And I have a real need to go back. I made many new friends from South Africa, Australia and the USA.

I strongly recommend both Discount African Hunts and this outfitter. John Martins set me up with a great outfitter, answered all my questions and made sure I had all my paperwork in order A to Z."

"I would recommend this hunt although I would recommend John at Discount African Hunts even more. Areas can get hot and cold but John always knows the hot spots to send hunters." 

"Totally recommend!"

"I looked long and far for a good deal on a lioness hunt.  By far, Discount African Hunts had the best price.  I had the hunt of a lifetime and took a beautiful lioness at close range with my bow.  The Professional Hunter was first class, the lodge was first class and my whole experience was unbelievable.  I will book with John Martins when I return to Africa to hunt leopard  in Zimbabwe.
