The Eastern Cape of South Africa is our base and home. This Malaria Free area offers a diverse combination of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife, together making it a unique hunting destination for the first time hunter to Africa.

In Zambia we hunt the magnificent Luangwa Valley, while Botswana boasts some of the very best Southern Greater Kudu, Elephant, and Leopard with hounds in the Kalahari Desert.
