Trophies Included in the Karoo Special Hunting Package

Hunting Zebra in South Africa

A zebra hunt in South Africa is an often under-rated hunt. Zebra have exceptional senses and are naturally wary in the wild. They're heavy set and a minimum 7mm caliber is needed to hunt them. To the untrained eye, it's difficult to tell the stallions apart from the mares. Choose your zebra trophy carefully, a zebra rug will last for generations and is a prized African trophy

Hunting Kudu in South Africa

Kudu are one of the most desirable plains game species among hunters. They possess unrivalled senses and hunting trophy kudu is always a challenge. When hunting kudu, move slowly, pausing often to survey the bush for movement and sound. If you spot a kudu bull before it spots you, your chances of success are much higher.

Hunting Blue Wildebeest in South Africa

Blue wildebeest are a common African plains game animal. They're exceptionally tough and are jokingly referred to as the "poor mans buffalo". Hunt blue wildebeest with a well bonded bullet and aim for the crease where the shoulder meets the body.

Hunting Black Wildebeest

Black wildebeest are often referred to as the clown of the Karoo. They have unusual habits and when frightened will often make big displays of dominance, running circles and returning to the centre of their territory. Hunt black wildebeest with caution, like blue wildebeest they are very tough to put down and shot placement is critical.

Hunting Impala

Impala are the most common African plains game animal and the most preyed upon antelope species. Impala hunting is challenging, they are found in large herds and there are usually plenty of eyes to bust your stalk.

Hunting Blesbok in South Africa

Blesbok are common South African plains game antelope. Blesbok hunting is often done in the plains, their preferred habitat. Make use of any available cover when hunting blesbok. Blesbok males are fiercely dominant and will often patrol the edge of their herd of females, straying onto the edge of the plains.

Hunting Warthog

A warthog hunt is a fun hunt! They have poor eyesight but exceptional hearing and smell. Challenge your stalking skills and see how close you can get. Warthog mating season is in April and May, the males grind their teeth together and can be heard from a fair distance away.
