This is an exportable trophy white lion hunt in South Africa’s Kalahari Desert. You will stalk your lion on foot by using the honed skills of a tracker to follow the lion in the soft Kalahari sands. This is one of the most exciting ways to hunt a lion, as the lion usually will know he is being followed and will eventually take cover in the thickest bush he can find. Some stalks will result in charges or mock charges that will make your hair stand on end!
The White Lion
Although oral history of white lions goes back hundreds of years, written records first mention sightings of white lions in the Timbavati region of South Africa, near what today is Kruger National Park. The natives considered the white lion to be the most sacred of all African animals and to have been sent down to earth from up above.
White lions are not a separate species of lion and are not albinos. Rather, white lions have what is known as “leucism” where a recessive gene causes the lions to have white or blonde coats. Albino lions lack pigment and do not have the black nose tips or the black shadow lines around the eyes like Leucistic lions have.
Having a mythical trophy like the white lion in your game room will make you the envy of your fellow hunters!
The White Lion Hunting Area
This white lion hunt will occur in the Kalahari Desert in the Northwest province near the town of Severn on a 24,000 acre hunting ranch. The area has red Kalahari sand and has lots of camelthorn trees. Tall grass veld is found after periods of good rains. The area has the perfect African Savanna for tracking a lion.
The White Lion Hunt
This hunt for a trophy white lion will be done in the typical Kalahari hunt way where you will visit waterholes in search of fresh spoor. Once fresh tracks are located you will track the lion on foot utilizing a skilled African tracker. This is the most exciting way to hunt a lion as you will eventually get close to the lion. Each lion is unique. Some will hide in heavy cover, where others will make a stand in the open and ready themselves to charge. Accurate shot placement is important to ensure that the lion hunt does not turn into a wounded lion tracking fiasco.
Good boots are necessary to walk in the sandy conditions. A good hat and some sun block are necessary to block the sun, which can be harsh in the desert.
Other available species include: Kalahari lion, Cape buffalo, Sable, Eland, Kudu, Waterbuck, Gemsbuck, Black Wildebeest, Blue wildebeest, Red hartebeest, Impala, Blesbuck, Springbuck, Duiker, Steenbuck and Warthog.
The White Lion Hunting Lodge
You will hunt out of a 4-Star lodge with all of the modern amenities. The lodge features permanent power and has air conditioning. Separate chalets and rooms both feature in-suite bathrooms with showers and bathtubs. The lodge has a swimming pool and the food is excellent. With a swimming pool to cool off in after a hard day tracking in the desert, and then an air-conditioned lodge to relax at, this is surely a lion hunting paradise!
The outfitter will pick you up at the airport in Kimberly. The drive from Kimberly to the lion hunting concession is approximately 4 hours. Pick-up and return from Johannesburg can be arranged at an additional charge of $300.
Someday in the not too distant near future we may not be able to hunt lions. For those of you that can import these magnificent trophies, why wait? Get your white lion while you still can!
