ABOUT THIS NIGHT HUNTING SAFARI

This is an awesome deal on a night hunt that includes 10 trophy fees for animals that most people will not encounter on a daytime safari in Africa. You will hunt a variety of private concessions to fill out this trophy list. This hunt is discounted significantly from what I see advertised on other websites and you will be hunting with an expert that specializes in these nighttime specialty hunts.

THE NIGHT CRITTER HUNTING AREA

This discounted night critter hunting safari in South Africa will take place near Sterkriver in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. The lodge sits on a privately owned 9,000-acre property.  The surrounding ranches will also be hunted, none of which are more than a 15-minute drive from camp. The total area that may be hunted encompasses more than 165,000 acres.

The terrain offers perfect cover and habitat for these animals and due to a strict permitting system, populations remain healthy, so the hunting is good.

This is first class hunting for excellent quality trophies in prime areas that are not over-hunted.  The package price is low for a night critter hunt of this quality.

THE NIGHT CRITTER HUNTING SAFARI METHODS

The night critter hunting will primarily take place utilizing 3 different hunting methods. Some of these animals can be lured into bait sites, so you will sit quietly in a blind at night waiting on them to come into the bait to feed. The outfitter maintains his bait stations year round, so these bait stations are regular feeding spots for many animals. Trail cameras are used to determine which bait sites are being utilized currently to make your hunt more predictable.

The outfitter’s blinds are designed to make night hunting comfortable.  The blinds are furnished with mattresses, blankets and pillows. There are buzzers that will vibrate if animals approach the baits. The outfitter uses night vision and has rifles equipped with night scopes.

Another method will be driving and spotlighting for these animals. This is an exciting way to hunt, as you never know what you are going to run in to at night.  You just need to be prepared to shoot quickly once the PH has determined that it is a trophy you are seeking.

For animals like jackals, calling may be utilized . Some of the other night animals will also come in to the call and you never know when a leopard might show up to create a bit of adrenalin!

The best times of the year for this hunt are near the new moon from June – September.

THE NIGHT CRITTER HUNTING LODGE

While hunting you will stay at a well-appointed 3-star lodge. The lodge boasts amazing views of the Waterberg Mountains and you can watch the sunset from the pool while zebra and wildebeest roam by on the plains. The food you will eat consists of 3-course home cooked meals and you will eat wild game daily.  The accommodations feature comfortable beds and in-suite bathrooms. Internet service and cell phone service is available at the lodge.  The lodge features permanent electrical service.

GETTING THERE

The outfitter will pick hunters up in Johannesburg or Polokwane and will provide road transportation to and from the hunting lodge. It is approximately a 4.5-hour drive from the airport in Johannesburg to the lodge. From Polokwane it is 1.5 hours. Depending on your time of arrival, you may wish to overnight at the Afton Safari Lodge and then take the drive to the outfitter's lodge the next morning, or you can fly to Polokwane the next morning and then make the short drive to the lodge.

Testimonials

"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!"

'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.'
