Over the years I’ve had numerous emails, conversations and debates about hunting in South Africa. Many at times have felt that once you’ve experienced your first safari to South Africa it was time to look further North. Time to look for a rush of blood in the tall grass on the track of a Cape Buffalo. And yes, I agree hunting Cape Buffalo is something each hunter must experience at least once in his life. Then there are those who return to the Eastern Cape, South Africa, after a few years. They come for the variety, great accommodations, and you’ll meet a few who will tell you about mountain hunting, Mountain Hunting in South Africa.
The Eastern Cape, South Africa, with its abundant wildlife boasts with all 3 Mountain Species. With enough mountain ranges to even generate appreciation from the Sheep hunters of the world, one can find a combination of habitat and terrain to support Vaal Rhebuck, Mountain Reedbuck and the ever elusive Klipspringer.
The Vaal Rhebuck is seen as one of the finest trophies in any hunters trophy collection and considered by many as the hardest trophy to hunt in South Africa. This species only occurs in South Africa and prefers an elevation of 6000 Ft above sea level, forming small groups of up to 12 animals with 1 dominant male. This species is a mono species, having no relation to any other species, making it a unique animal. From a distance, always occurring along ridges or mountain slopes, they appear larger than expected with their grey coats.
Join us – it’s highly recommended for any hunters who wish to challenge the mountains and enjoy the view on top of the world, while on the hunt for these masters of the mountains.
