THE HUNT

South Africa is a vast country with a huge variety of hunting areas.  A great diversity of mammals, including all the Dangerous seven, abounds in the different areas of our beautiful country.  In addition to that, South Africa also offers a rich bird life, whereof great numbers are found in the Limpopo area. Hunting is conducted on 35 different concessions (500 000 acres) in the Limpopo area, within a radius of 15 minutes to 1 hour drive from the camp, covering beautiful savannah, river and mountainous areas.  This means that the hunter will be back in the camp in the evenings, to be catered for in our unique style of entertainment. Some popular varieties like the 4 different Springbuck species, Black Wildebeest, Lechwe and many more species are habituating in the Free State province.  A road trip or Charter flight is suitable to undertake, depending on the hunter’s preference.  This area has its own unique grassland terrain, demanding far range shooting, giving a different approach to hunting.  Some other areas where we may also hunt are the Eastern Cape and the Lowveld. Lion hunting takes place in the Kalahari district of South Africa.  This area is semi bushveld and hot, perfectly suited for the purpose, since it is a Lion’s natural territory.  Tusks & Tracks Africa complies to all the PHASA hunting regulations in this regard, and hunts on a 12,000 acre private concession.  Lions are not put on bait, but hunted by walking & stalking with bushman trackers, giving the lion a fair chase with men. The method of hunting depends on the client, whether it be with a bow or rifle, however, bow hunting on lion requires a special permit.  Plains game hunting with a bow & arrow are mainly executed on concessions exclusively for bow hunting, in terms of terrain, blinds/hides & support. In all cases where hunters have to sleep out, Tusks & Tracks Africa ensures that the facilities are equal to that of the main camp. Our 5 Star Lodges are fully equipped with a skinning shed and proper slaughtering facilities.  We believe that the trophies need to be treated with respect, from the kill to the final preparation of mounting.  Carcasses are skinned by highly experienced skinners, who also prepare the trophies for dip & packing.  Most of the meat is used for camp purposes. With well maintained company vehicles, our 4 X 4 hunting trucks, equipped with two-way radios, field support and medical assistance, are able to almost undertake any hunting trip in South Africa or neighboring countries.  Well experienced professional hunters and trackers ensure a trouble free and exciting hunting experience – long to be remembered. Tusks & Tracks Africa also offer hunting possibilities in neighboring countries, like Zimbabwe, Botswana & Mozambique, where Big Game hunting such as Buffalo or Elephant may be under taken.  These trips are usually undertaken with charter flight services from Tusks & Tracks Africa.  The accommodation facilities in these outskirts are developed to provide the basic, but yet comfortable facilities.  Rooms might vary from bungalows to Safari tents, but all are equipped with en-suite bathrooms.
