Fair Chase is someting we believe in and we are strong advocates thereof. “Fair chase is defined as pursuit of a free ranging animal or enclosed ranging animal possessed of the natural behavioral inclination to escape from the hunter and be fully free to do so. A sport hunted animal should exist as a naturally interacting individual of a wild sustainable population, located in an area that meets both the spatial (territory and home range) and temporal (food, breeding and basic needs) requirements of the population of which that individual is a member.”
Terrains differ according to the species hunted and vary greatly, from wide open savanna grasslands, semi- desert and desert, rugged mountains, to thick Mopane scrub bushveld and, bamboo patches and seep line palm stretches to natural forests in the higher rainfall areas. All species are obviously not found in one country due to the terrain variety, which results in traveling between different areas or countries, depending on the species wanted.
Accommodation varies, from tented camps with reed fences around them, ranch houses, chalets with thatched roofs to luxurious Safari Lodges. Normally double beds or twin beds in rooms. Flush toilets and hot shower facilities available. Meals vary from ranch style cooking to western world style and consist of vegetables of the season, meat (mutton, beef, game and pork). Fresh drinking water is always available.
Things to consider when researching and booking your safari…
- Trophy Fees and Day Fees
- Animal species that you plan to harvest.
- The Country of hunting.
- The size and location of the properties you plan to hunt is of utmost importance. You can ask yourself the following questions:
- Does the property lie within the natural habitat of the species you are after?
- Does it hold a self sustaining number of huntable species and trophy size animals within the ecologically intact habitat? It is essential to remember that some habitats are more favorable to harvest certain specific species and boasts higher densities of these species, whereas less suitable species may have lower game densities or even absent due to a combination of factors.
- It is also important to know if the property where you plan to hunt is hunted exclusively by one safari operator and/or by the owner, or whether the hunting rights are sold to a number of operators. Outfitters with a permanent or long term interest in hunting a specific area will usually manage game and trophy quality better.
- Note that the cheapest trophy fee is not really cheap, if there are no or few mature animals to hunt!
- A safari is like any other consumable commodity – you usually get what you pay for!
