If you have any doubt about your shooting out to 300 yards on Kudu which is an Elk size animal,  or your fitness, then it would be wise to book some extra days. Shots are mostly sitting with bipods on game which is standing still.


In the Rut is a great and very special time to hunt KUDU. The Rut here is mainly in June and you can hunt free range bulls - Very Special to find these Kudu where there are no fences ! This hunt is short because it is in the Rut so you should see Good bulls !

If not much is seen, which rarely happens in June, the hunt will be on Very Large Ranches so you WILL get numerous opportunities to get your Kudu Trophy !

This hunt is for the early risers and hunter must be fit for lots walking - we need to get into the KUDU areas and their trails by first light, so 4 am wake up, then sometimes a short hike in the dark may be required to get into a suitable position before first light ! 


Trophy game and some non trophy game may also be hunted per price list on this hunt. 


A reminder that any animal not exported out of South Africa 15 % VAT tax must be charged onto the animals fees, and onto any Trophy's fees. Exporting even just one part or some of the animals you hunt will mean no VAT tax needs to be charged. RHS needs to get an export waybill from SA Customs as proof of export then no vat tax is payable on the game in the package.

Hunt the Eastern Cape of South Africa with Richard Holmes Safaris for the above listed trophy animals.

Our plains game Safaris take place on huge private ranches ranging in size from 8,000 - 22,000 acres. There are no interior fences on our ranch and few fences on our other private hunting plains game ranches, and all hunting is done by spot and stalk , so it is real open fair chase hunting. – please ask our references.
