THE CROCODILE HUNTING AREA
The hunt will take place on an exclusive hunting concession in the Limpopo Province of South Africa near the town of Swartwater, which is one of the few areas where you can take wild crocodiles in South Africa. The outfitter's average crocodile in this area is over 12 feet in length. The outfitter told me that he has taken crocs up to almost 16 ft. on this concession!
The hunting areas consist of 16,000 acres, and features a dammed river that forms a good-sized reservoir that is teeming with large crocodiles.. This is beautiful crocodile country and once the dam holds the river's water levels consistent during most of the year. The size of the reservoir does expand during the rainy season in the spring. The river’s water level goes down during the dryer months,concentrating the crocs in the main portion of the reservoir.. The big crocodiles like tolay back in the shallows at the head of the reservoir to catch bushbuck, impala and other game.
The terrain is mostly flat and sandy with heavy brush and as one gets closer to the river it starts to become more open with good cover for stalking crocodiles. This area has an abundance of plains game and there are lots of hippo and Cape buffalo here also.
THE CROCODILE HUNT
This hunt for wild crocodiles in South Africa will be primarily done on foot. You will walk and stalk, always keeping a lookout for a trophy crocodile either sunning himself or lurking in the water waiting on prey. Once a big croc is spotted, you will decide on a plan and stalk to within shooting distance of the trophy crocodile. An accurate shot is necessary to pin the croc on shore and prevent him from escaping into the water and disappearing. Crocodile that face some hunting pressure are extremely cunning, as they possess excellent senses of hearing, smell and vision. Sneaking up on a trophy crocodile is a lot more challenging and exciting than many hunters realize.
The outfitter has obtained permits to be able to hunt these crocodiles legally. That makes this hunt significantly different than many of the other crocodile hunts in South Africa where the permits used are not issued for the property you are hunting on, and therefore are technically illegal.
Once you are successful taking your trophy bull crocodile you may continue hunting for the plains game species that are numerous on the concession. You can add a hippo to this hunt for only $8,000! Trophy fees for other species are listed below:
The best time of year to Hunt Crocodiles in South Africa is May through October when the reservoir is stable and the crocodiles are concentrated on the banks sunning.
12 foot plus crocodiles are nomal and bigger crocs and do get shot here!
THE CROCODILE LODGE
You will stay in a nice 4-star lodge overlooking the reservoir while hunting your Nile crocodile. The lodge has thatch roofs and has the comforts you would expect while on safari. The camp features comfortable beds, in-suite bathrooms and showers, daily laundry service, a swimming pool and three excelent meals a day.. The outfitter’s staff is trained to cater to their client’s needs. The hunting vehicles are well-maintained. There is cell phone service available in camp. Internet service is not available at this camp.
