1. All

Brown or Spotted. Hunt a Large Wild Predator in South Africa. ALL INCLUSIVE. NO HIDDEN COSTS.



Package includes 1 Brown or 1 Spotted Hyena, 1 Hunter, 5 hunting days, 6 nights in LIMPOPO area of South Africa.




Spotted Hyena is allowed into the USA but Brown Hyena is not.

Brown Hyena fall under the USA Endangered species act and therefore are not allowed into the USA.




Baiting begins a few days before you arrive. Bait : For Brown Hyena baboon works nicely, otherwise guts from other hunts is used.

Around two hours before sunset you and your PH head to the blind / hide, which is pretty cozy.
Three can fit in, in relative comfort.

You lie on matresses and blankets from camp. They make the least noise.

There is a shooting rack made from steel that’s pretty steady, which is set it up before bedding down.

In the tree above the bait there is a spotlight and a microphone.
PH has the mic earpieces in his ears and stays awake.
The change in noise from the mic alerts PH that something is feeding on the bait.
Rifle is already mounted aimed at the bait and then PH gets the shooter into position and turn the light on with a remote control.
Spotlight is on a dimmer switch, so not to spook the predator.
The animal gives you a few seconds to shoot - 3 seconds doesn’t sound like much but it is ample time.

Once you are in the hide / blind there are no toilet breaks.
Hyena seem to come in relatively early.
See photos from a trail camera recently put out over some intestines and Check out the time stamps.

If no Hyena come in, then early morning you head back to camp to have a quick coffee and rusks and go check other bait sites before a proper breakfast back at camp.
The rest of they day is spent resting , hunting plains game or fishing.

If a hunt is successful your PH radios in the tracker to pick you up and to start skinning your trophy.
