The Warthog Cull Hunt Hunting Area
The hunting location for this warthog culling safari will take place in South Africa's Limpopo Province near Lephahlale. The 2,222-hectare hunting concession is a 3.5-hour drive north from Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International airport. A 3-star lodge will be your headquarters for this nighttime hunt. This large concession is well known for the quality hunting it produces and has a high population of warthogs.
This hunt will take place in Limpopo on some irrigated agricultural farms where warthogs are considered to be pests due to the destruction of crops in the area. The area consists of bushveld, open plains and Mountains. The Limpopo region is famous for the amount and diversity of game that is found in the area and this area has a lot of warthogs. Warthog cull hunts are one of the primary methods that are used to keep the local pig populations in check..
During the months from May - August it is dry and the leaves have fallen, which makes it easier to spot the animals. This hunt will take place on irrigated circles whwre the warthogs come out to feed on the green crops produced by the irrigation. You will see a lot of warthogs and will have multiple opportunities to shoot each day.
You can expect temperatures from 30's early mornings and evenings, but it warms up during the day to mid-70's to mid 80's.. Best to dress in layers.

Warthog Cull Hunting Methods
This warthog hunt is mostly done by sitting over irrigated fields, where you will see atmany warthogs each day.
Your day will start with an early breakfast in camp at 6:30am. You will then drive out to the field you will hunt and get set up for the day's shoot.
It is not only warthogs that come to the irrigated fields, there are kudu, impala, blue wildebeest, eland and zebra that you will see coming in to feed also.. Should you see a trophy of one of these species while you are hunting warthogs, you can harvest that animal for the regular price list trophy fee.
It gets dark between 5pm and 6pm during the winter months, so you will be back in the main camp at 6:30pm. The campfire will be burning, where you will tell your hunting stories and share your day's hunt with the staff.
This hunt is available from March through November. There are also some exceptional plains game trophies on this concession. This area of Limpopo is known for producing trophy kudu, so you might want to do a little kudu hunting as well. Plains game prices may be viewed via the link below:
Most hunters will overnight in Johannesburg at the Afton Guest House and then be picked up by the outfitter and transported on a 2.5-hour drive to the hunting concession the next morning. After you arrive you can settle in and sight in your rifles in preparation for the first day's hunt.
This hunt will occur primarily in the daytime. Although it will be cool in the early mornings, most days it will warm up rapidly. A light jacket is recommended for those cooler early mornings.
A good scope that is clear and has a wide field of vision is important when cull hunting. Often these animals will freeze for a few seconds. The ability to quickly find them in your scope is an important aspect of this hunt. A good pair of binoculars will also aid you in judging your trophies. Quality optics are a big aid on this type of night hunt.
The outfitter does their own dip and pack and recommends that you ship any trophies that you wish to have mounted to a taxidermist in your home country. Should you wish to use an African taxidermist to mount your trophies, contact John Martins for recommendations.
