Specialty Animal Hunts in South Africa

South Africa has the best specialty animal hunting in all of Africa.  Specialty animal hunts in South Africa have evolved from these animals being taken as animals of opportunity to more focused hunts seeking a specific animal or two.  There are now outfitters that specialize in guiding safaris specifically targeting these odds and ends animals.  Many of these specialty animals are available as secondary species to a plains game or dangerous game safari. While not the main focus of the safari, they are still a major consideration when booking a hunt.

South Africa offers the greatest variety of specialty animal hunting safaris on the African Continent.  Many of these exotic species are found throughout South Africa, while others are much more regionally specific.  Specialty animal hunts in South Africa offer the collector a virtual smorgasbord of choices. From the small African cats to the predators, hogs, primates and snakes, the challenge of hunting and taking this wide variety of collectable specialty animals can serve as the focus of multiple hunting safaris to Africa.

Africa’s predators range from the diminutive genet all the way up to the fearsome hyenas.  Just collecting the foxes, small cats, and hyenas can fill out a corner of a trophy room.   Predators are usually hunted at night, and other nighttime species such as the honey badger (ratel), aardwolf and African porcupine can also be hunted concurrently.  Many African hunters take specialty animal hunts in South Africa to collect the warthog and the nocturnal bushpig.  Bushpigs are normally hunted over bait. But a few outfitters have trained their dogs to go after bushpigs.  Either way, the taking of a trophy bushpig is a great accomplishment.

Primates are also on many hunter's African lists, and hunting baboons can be downright fun.  Vervet monkeys are  also a target of collectors.  A couple species of mongoose are available in South Africa along with the diminutive rock hyrax.  Some snakes are also available as trophies.  A rock python skin makes a beautiful mount in the hands of a competent African taxidermist.  Specialty animal hunts in South Africa are hard to beat!


"I booked a plains game hunt in South Africa through Discount African Hunts.  The price was half of what other outfitters were selling the same package of animals for.  After being assured by John Martins that this offer was for real I went ahead and booked.  Everything turned out just like I was told and I took 7 beautiful trophies on the trip of my lifetime.  Don't let the low prices hold you back.  I am sure I will never take a hunt of this quality again at a price like I paid. My hunt was awesome!"

"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."

"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."
