South Africa is the most popular hunting destination on the continent. The wealth of species on offer, the wide range of hunting experiences, overall affordability and fantastic infrastructure all contribute to a world-class African hunting destination. Most camps are easily accessible via OR Tambo International in Johannesburg, which is also a large part of the appeal in choosing South Africa for your hunting experience.
We specialise particularly in wing shooting in Southern Africa, this has gained increasing popularity in the past few years among hunters headed to the continent to test their skills. From the semi-desert in the west to the plains and rivers of the high veld and on to the savannas of the north, the wing shooter can find more than 20 different species of game birds.
The more popular regions tend to be primarily a mixed crop farming area particularly rich in both game birds and waterfowl. You will be tested by flighted dove over corn fields and walk up snipe in the wetlands. The best wing shooting opportunities are present during June, July, and August, which coincide with the open seasons in most of South Africa’s provinces. Being a rather social affair, wing shooting is best done in small groups. The ideal size of the group is two, but even a group of six hunters can be easily accommodated.
South Africa is particularly great if you are looking to bring along observers or your family, as there is such a wealth of local highlights for them to enjoy, from safaris to exploring the nearby cities.
What ever your shooting adventure be, we can work on a bespoke package to suit your chosen experience.
Our experience lies in the Wing Shooting areas of the country, the bird species most commonly hunted in Southern Africa range from the sand grouse and quail to francolin, guinea fowl and various species of dove and pigeons. Two species of geese are available; the Egyptian goose and Spur-winged goose can make for a rather challenging hunt. If your wing shooting preferences lean toward ducks, the Yellow Bill, White-faced Whistling, and African Shell duck may be your “cup of tea”. Several species of Teal are also available and these small, quick, agile waterfowl can give even the most competent of shotgunners a real run for their money. All species are not available in all areas, and local province restrictions may apply, so be sure to make your preferences known when booking your safari.
