HOW WE OPERATE
We only hunt on foot. Mostly spot and stalk or walk and stalk, sometimes sitting in ambush and wait or crawl for those who can. No shooting from vehicles and the game here are totally wild animals so our hunts are a real fair chase experience.
We are here to assist you door to door with your African hunting safari, all the way from when you decide to book, from when you leave home and get back again, as well as caring for your trophys untill they get home. We ensure you are never left alone or wondering. We have people to meet and ASSIST you in Johannesburg and in Port Elizabeth.
Example : an American or European hunter never travelled overseas before, let alone Africa and that worries him or her. Then he reads on our website or facebook how some other American landed at Johannesburg, was met by one of our guys there, helped with clearing his firearm, taken to a nice guest house where he enjoyed the company and had a good meal and rest after the flight. The following day he is taken to the airport, arrives in PE to be met by his Richard Holmes Safaris - RHS Professional Hunter - PH and the next thing he is on our Ranch. No fuss, no bother - just as easy as flying to Dallas (and maybe safer too!). How good does this make him feel ? Now he knows that with RHS he has nothing to worry about.
We take out the UNKNOWN part of booking your AFRICAN hunting Safari - we answer all your questions about your dream African hunt so you will feel comfortable about everything before you arrive here! We will help do your bookings ( flights, hotels, tours etc ) so you don't have to worry about this.

RICHARD HOLMES SAFARIS
We are a fourth generation family business on the land, now specialising in South African Hunting Safaris with many years of hunting experience. We have been in the Hunting Safari business for over 30 years.
We own our Ranch, our Base, our Lodge and the hunting area, which is named Clifton, and the size is a total of 4,050 acres / 1620 hectares with over 800 head of WILD game and 20 Species on our land.
Hunting is done on our own property / ranch and
on some days, hunts are on other close by areas, which are privately owned ranches we call concessions.
The areas we hunt have a large variety of game species and game is abundant, WILD and in established breeding herds, so we never need to add game onto our ranch because our game numbers are full up and the supply of game availabe is therefore mostly constant and self replenishing. You will see lots of wildlife and game every day.
The Eastern Cape is unique due to some rare species of game found only here.
We recommend and prefer that you bring your own rifle/s for your hunt - bring your tried and trusted shooter. Once you are Inside South Africa only AIRLINK or SAFAIR will fly your rifles and ammo.
