This is an incredible opportunity to hunt hippos in South Africa at a great price! This renowned Big 5 outfitter has put together a great package for the hunter who wants to hunt a trophy bull hippopotamus while you still can. With it being difficult to get trophies out of Mozambique, South Africa stopping the issuance of PAC hippo CITES export permits and the European Union tightening the issuance of newly required import permits, the places where you can hunt and import trophy hippos are disappearing rapidly.

 Hunters have enjoyed a 100% success rate on this hunt over the last several years.  This hunt will take place on a 10,000-acre government reserve that is in the Northwest Province an hourfrom Rustenberg. The nearest airport is Johannesburg

The concession has a large 1,000-acre lake that holds water year-round, which makes it a great place for hippos to reside. This is the perfect safari to hunt your trophy bull hippo and then spend a few days relaxing and hunting plains game from your luxury lodge.

This area is the perfect place to hunt hippos in South Africa. The lodge is very comfortable and is within a reasonable driving distance from the hunting area. All guest rooms feature en-suite toilets and showers. The lodge features both Wi-Fi and cell phone service. Trophy hippos are a realistic expectation for every hunter visiting this concession. Crocodiles can also be added to this hunt for a trophy fee but will be hunted on a different concession that features a large reservoir.

The Northwest rovince is known for its quality trophy plains game hunting and especially for its trophy Greater Southern Kudus.

I believe that this is one of the best areas to hunt hippos in all of South Africa. There are many hippos on this concession, including some big ones. You can hunt the trophy hippo of your dreams right here!

Hunting methods will consist of driving out to look for bull hippos and then making a plan for stalking and getting into position for the shot. Shooting opportunities for the hippo can occur on land or in the water. A well-placed shot will ensure that your trophy hippo makes the trip back home to your game room!  Your South African PH will be highly experienced and familiar with the area being hunted. Hippo hunting in South Africa doesn’t get any more exciting than this!  Other animals are available during this safari and can be viewed on the price list below:

After you take your hippo you can add a Cape buffalo bull for only $7,000 including 3 additional hunting days! The expected size range is a hard-bossed bull from 37-42".

If you want to ensure that you get a good Hippo for your game room, and want to hunt an area that still allows you to export the hippo, then this is the hunt you have been looking for!

'It was the most exciting hunt I have ever been on. We stalked a small bachelor group for a few days before I shot a mature cape buffalo with my Browning 375 H&H.'

'This was my third hunt with Discount African Hunts and each one has been fantastic.  I don't think I would book my future African hunts with anyone else.'

"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!"
