This is a great deal for both the first timer to Africa or returning hunters. This Tented Camp Hunting Safari Package in Limpopo will take place on farms that range from 2,800 to over 5,000 acres. The camp is located about 3.5 hours north of Johannesburg. The closest town on the map is the town of Vaalwater. The terrain varies from flat with thick bushveld to mountainous. There is a good mixture of rolling hills, open plains as well as thick bush, thus making it perfect plains game habitat.


This is a typical African safari where you will utilize the truck to move around to locate animals and then get out and make a stalk on foot.  You will be hunting mostly fenced farms. There is a great abundance of game on these hunting areas. Some  great trophies live on these concessions, but you will have to work to harvest the best heads.  Although you will see many animals a day, challenging hunting is the order of the day.  This is a Tented Camp Plains Game Hunting Safari for trophy animals that you will never forget!

This Tented Camp Hunting Safari is a hybrid consisting of a 4-star tented camp and two permanent chalets that feature permanent electrical power along with cell phone and internet service. The camp is split, with two tents and two permanent luxury chalets. The tented camp has 2 tents that have two beds each in them so the tented camp portion can accommodate a maximum of 4 hunters at a time. The tents have nice comfortable beds and have in-suite toilets.  The shower facility sits between the two tents and is shared. Each permanent chalet can sleep 3 people.

The food and service are good and the hunting is awesome! The cooking, eating and gathering area is under a large traditional thatched roof, so you will experience many of the amenities available when hunting from a lodge, but the safari will have that old-Africa feel. There is a good-sized boma area for sitting around the fireplace at night while watching the steaks cook. This is a great option for families where mom and dad can stay in the luxury of a permanent luxury chalet while the kids can experience staying in a tented camp. This is a modern way to hunt modern Africa with a traditional flair!

This area is not a malaria area.  No special precautions are required!


The terrain is classified as bushveld, which means that it is grassland covered with various types of trees and bushes. This specific hunting area has got plenty of open areas to spot animals, but also has sufficient bush cover to approach them for an opportunity to shoot. The main hunting area is flat, with a perennial stream running along one side of the property. Other areas are also hunted, all being within a short driving distance.


Hunting in the winter months will typically start early in the morning with a cup of cofee and a snack before you head out when the sun rises.  You will normally hunt until about 10:30, upon which you will return for brunch. You will then have the choice of a rest or you can head straight back out.. You will then hunt until last light and then head back in to have an afterhunt cocktail and to prepare for dinner.

Recommended rifle calibers for this plains game hunting package in South Africa are from between 7mm up to .375. Animals not harvested on this hunt will be removed from the final price at the pro-rated discounted price that was used when creating this package.  Additional animals are available during this hunt and may be viewed on the price list below:

So what are you waiting for?  Why book a hunt with daily rates and then shoot animals at full price?  This traditional Tented Camp Hunting Safari package includes many of the animals that hunters want to take!  With this package hunt, you will be hunting 1X1 and taking 5 great trophy African animals at a fabulous price!   

A lot of  hunters tell me they don’t care about staying in a 4-5 star lodge and just want comfortable lodging in a area with good hunting. If you are looking for that old Africa feel of a tented camp safari - this is it!  This hunt will put you in an area with excellent hunting and with great trophy quality. You can enjoy all of that while staying in a traditional tented camp setting.   What more can one ask for?


Most hunters that arrive in the morning will be picked up at the Johannesburg airport (JNB) and will be driven directly to the camp, where you will settle in, catch a late meal and go to bed to prepare for the next day’s hunt to begin. It is about a 2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg. If your flight arrives in the late afternoon or evening, I recommend that you overnight at the comfortable Afton Safari Lodge and then have your outfitter pick you up in the morning and drive you to the lodge. When departing, you will be driven to the Johannesburg airport for your return flight home.

"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."

"I was hunting with my son and my batchmate from school. We had an experience of a life time and will definitely repeat the experience again. The weather was perfect. We shot Kudu / Zebra / Wildebeest / Impala / Red Hartebeest / Blesbuck / a day of bird shooting." 

"We took back  memories for a life time  and will surly recommend the experience to other hunters."
