Occasionally broken horns or 1 horn game are available, but no guarantee they will be available at the time of your hunt. Females and males also aren’t always available – it depends if they need to be managed / culled and this need also changes by the year and by the season , so Please ask your PH what is available at the time of your hunt.

As many of these could be very old animals – there is no guarantee the hide will be perfect, even after tanning. However, most hides turn out fine but there are some exceptions - this risk is on the hunter. 

Most species for non trophy are female to control population numbers.

Most of the non trophy hunting takes place on our own ranches and the prices printed here are for on our ranches. In the rare event the hunter wants to hunt non trophys on another of our concessions, which are ranches owned by other person/s, the animal fee is higher and game on such other ranches is subject to availability.


Special Game / Quota Species - see Price list page

For Buffalo, Sable and Roan, a percent of the trophy fee is required upon booking as a deposit which will be a credit on the safari of the booked animal.  Cancellation or change of date will result in the loss of the deposit.

All species on this list require advance booking of the species wanted.
