WHAT TO EXPECT ON A SAFARI:
Very few clients know how their Safari trip is put together. An African Hunting Safari will start from the day you make your choice on which African Hunting Safari Operator you choose. It will all come together by explaining your African Hunting Safari step by step.
1. After you had a conversation with your African Outfitter and you set your date and hunt you will pay a required deposit that the Outfitter needs from you.
2. As soon as you land in South Africa at O.R.TAMBO International Airport, you can be sure that one of ZA HUNTING SAFARIS' members will be waiting for you.
3. This is where your memorable trip of a lifetime will begin.
You will be helped by collecting your rifles at the permit office at the airport.
From here you will have a short 35 minute drive to your Guest house that is situated on the Northern side of the Magalies mountain range overlooking the Northern part of Pretoria.
4. The first night you be invited for a traditional meal or a good barbeque with your host. Having a good night rest will have you in good shape for your African Hunting Safari.
5.The following morning you will set out to get to the hunting area that you have chosen.
This will be a relaxing 4 hours drive from Pretoria. This is a great area with a wide variety of game! Hunting plains game or one of the Big Five will be a fun but challenging hunt. In this area you will see many different species from the tiny Steenbuck to the mighty Buffalo.The hotel is situated in a small town called Rosendal, 15 minutes drive from the main hunting area. Alternative hunting areas are available which is an hours drive from Rosendal.
Camp Zulu Land,
Camp Zulu Land is 6 hours drive from Pretoria. The option is there to take a charter flight that will only take an hour and ten minutes. Hunting for Plains game or Big Five in Natal will be as challenging as any other place on earth! The area is thick brush with open areas in between and can expect to see the Red Duiker darting into thick brush while on foot.
This camp is only 2½ hours drive from Pretoria. Perfect area for bow hunters.Hunting is more difficult than the Freestate. A lot more thick brush and trees. Lots of fun hunting on foot or out of a blind.
This area is known for sandy but thick brush in places! Preferably try and charter into hunting area that borders Botswana, one of South Africa's neighboring countries. The long drive by vehicle but well worth the time for a trophy Lion or Lioness. Hunting areas are very big and one will need some time to get a quality trophy animal.
