The Honey Badger and Civet Hunting Area
The hunting location for this nighttime specialty animal hunting safari will take place in South Africa's Limpopo Province. The 25,000 hectare hunting concession is less than a 1-hour drive north of Polokwane. A 4-star lodge will be your headquarters for this nighttime hunt. The ranch is situated in the Soutpansberg Mountains and this large concession is well known for the quality hunting it produces.
The Specialty Animal Hunting Lodge
You will be staying at a 4-star lodge that features comfortable beds and in-suite bathroom facilities. The lodge also features a scenic pool for the use of hunters coming in the early or late seasons. The food, wine and service at this lodge are a great example of what makes South African hospitality famous. Meals are served three times daily and are customized to a client’s particular taste. The majority of hunters want to eat some of the local game and the kitchen staff will be happy to show you their flair at preparing venison in a variety of tasty dishes.
Since you will be primarily hunting at night, the meal schedule will be adjusted to accommodate the hunting hours. Daily laundry service, an attentive camp staff, first class sleeping accommodations and beautiful vistas makes it easy to recuperate from a hard day in the bush.
The lodge features permanent electrical power. Cell phone service and internet are available in camp.
Honey Badger, Civet and Genet Hunting Methods
Hunting methods for this nighttime animal hunting safari will consist of two primary methods. One method will be to hunt at night from blinds over bait piles that are monitored by trail cameras. The trail cameras allow the PH to determine which baits are being hit nightly by the targeted species and get an idea of the times the animal is coming in to feed. A size assessment can also be made from good trail camera pictures. Your honey badger and genet will most likely be hunted by this method.
This outfitter utilizes a live camera system that allows the bait sites to be monitored 24 hours a day from the hunting lodge. You can actually watch the bait sites while you are eating or relaxing at the lodge!
The other method that will be utilized is to drive around spotlighting for these nocturnal animals. Spotlighting can be especially effective for civet, and that is the likely way that this animal will be hunted.
This hunt is available from March through November, with the winter being the preferred time (June-Sept). There are also some exceptional plains game trophies on this concession. Plains game prices may be viewed via the link below:
Most hunters will overnight in Johannesburg at the Afton Guest House and then take a short flight to Polokwane the next morning. The PH will pick you up at the Polokwane airport and transport you on a short one hour drive by vehicle to the hunting concession, where you can settle in and sight in your rifles in preparation for the first night's hunt.
You will have the opportunity to visit a local taxidermist before you head home. They will also handle your dip and pack and shipping should you wish to ship your trophy to your taxidermist in the US.
