All animals are hunted in the Baviaansriver Conservancy, Umkomaas Valley and Stormberg Mountains. The animals are all free range and indigenous to the area and habitat.
First-time Plains Game Hunters
For the first-time hunter in Africa, a free range plains game hunt is a great way to see the country and experience many hunting opportunities and challenges. Usually 8 to 10 days, with a few priority species and an opportunistic mindset, is the best way to approach the first hunt. Priority species include Kudu, Bushbuck, Gemsbuck, Warthog and a few other species. Most of our first-time hunters will hunt the Baviaansriver Conservancy. This 450 000 acre free range area has great trophy quality and variety.

Africa has a way of drawing you back and the Umkomaas Valley is a perfect destination for the returning hunter, focusing on huge free range Nyala, Southern Greater Kudu, Bushbuck and many others. This unique 100 000 acre area has a truly wild authentic feel and unbelievable trophy quality.
The Umkomaas Valley, Baviaansriver and Stormberg Mountains offer very different hunting challenges, scenery, camps and animals.
