A Typical Hunting Day
Your day will begin with a breakfast of your choice before the sun rises. After this you will get on one of our well equipped hunting vehicles and drive to an area where your experienced Professional Hunter expect to find the species that you are interested in hunting. You will get off the vehicle and commence your stalk.
A stalk can take anything from ten minutes up to three or four hours. The PH with the help of a tracker will guide you. There will be water available at all times. Once game is spotted, the PH will instruct you on how you will approach. He will then identify one or several possible trophy animals. Once you are close enough, the PH will identify an animal that will qualify for the high standard of trophies that we set for our clients. The PH will then endeavor to get you in the best possible shooting position. Shots are taken from shooting sticks or the help of branches, ant hills, etc. is brought into play. Shots are usually taken from 30 to 180 yards, depending on the circumstances. The PH will make it clear that you should only take the shot of you are ready and comfortable to take it. No client is ever pressured into taking a shot.
When an animal has been harvested, the client will get the opportunity to take pictures and enjoy the moment. In mean time, the hunting vehicle will be recovered and the trophy will then be taken to our slaughtering facilities where the field dressing procedure shall begin. Skinning or caping of your trophy will be done according to your instructions and you can rest assured, salting of skins and field preparations skulls and horns will be done carefully and according to the book.
You will hunt until about noon, when the day gets too hot for you and the animals to continue hunting. We will head back to the hunting lodge for a well deserved light lunch and a short afternoon snooze or siesta. Alternatively you can lounge around the pool or relax in camp.
Afternoon coffee will be served after you will commence the afternoon hunt. This takes on the same form as in the morning hunt. You will hunt until the sun sets on the African skies. At this point we will get out an ice cold beverage for you to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
