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 animals hunt.  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.


Optional Extras

  • Side trips and tours
  • Gratuities / Tips
  • Skinning of certain species for mounting will cost extra, for example small mammals and birds, eg. monkey $ 30 skinning fee for a full body mount skin.
  • Cell phone rental - see Travel Hints FAQ  Phone, Email & Wifi section for this.
  • Additional PH  US$ 100 per day.
  • If you choose to use a Local Taxidermist other than Taxidermy Africa our storage of your Trophies is limited. We have a permanent long term relationship with Taxidermy Africa they are punctual about picking up your Trophies from us.
  • Any animal or bird wounded and lost at the time your safari ends or shot, accidental or incidental is payable in full, and if NOT exported from South Africa is subject to Value Added Tax of 15 % added onto the trophy/cull fee. (This is South African law)
  • Costs besides the Safari are Taxidermy, trophy export permits, customs trophy clearance fees and shipping of trophys to your home and any pre or post safari hotels, taxis / transport and tips. 
  • Meat is not included in the animal’s price. Meat may not be exported from the country of South Africa. Meat belongs to the landowner.
  • We have a small shop selling a variety of Karoo products and curios to take home and remind you of us. However any wood, ostrich egg and animal parts ( bone/horn/hoof etc ) must go home with your Trophys as these items require veterinary, tanning and or export permits, i.e. you can't legally take them home with you when you fly home. There is a cost for the curios to be fumigated, tanned and permit fee payable to our local taxidermist.
  • Rifle hire is very limited at the moment due to numerous of our guns going out of action suddenly so it is best to plan to bring your own rifle/s. Rental = US$ 30 per day, But .375 H&H Mag cost is $ 40 - 50 / day and hire includes reasonable amount of ammo (only 1 of each is available : .222, .30-06, .375 H&H Mag ). Rifles are all scoped with Harris 14 - 27 " extendable Bipods attatched and slings, all attached to Rifles.
    A firearm rental day is defined as: If the gun goes out in the truck it has been rented for the day even if no shot has been fired with it or if it does not get used at all.
    • .222 BSA - wood stock , 55 grain soft point reloads.
    • .30-06 Browning A Bolt with Boyd wood stock. Burris 4,5 - 14 scope with Ballistic Plex horizontal BARS. 180 grain Hornady SP Reloads : 100 yds 1 “ high & 200 yds using 200 YD BAR ( One bar below crosshair ) = ZERO. Therefore drop from 100 – 200 yds = 3 “ . But this rifle barrel is getting old and worn, although it still currently works ok. One alternative is .375 with 200 grain bullets which has similar balistics - see below.
    • .30-06 Howa Bolt action Rifle with tactical synthetic Black Talon stock with built in recoil absorber, pistol grip, scope is a Scheels Athlon Neos 6 -18 x 44 Center X SFP, HVT Reticle with holdover bars, ammo is Hornady / Nosler 180 grain SP reloads.
    • .375 H&H MAG SAKO - Mostly for Very Large and Dangerous game only , costs is $ 40 - 50 / day depends on grain of ammo used - with wood stock and Muzzle break so recoil is very low - about same as a .30-06. Leupold 2,5 - 8 scope. 200 Sierra FN zero at 100 yds or 235 grain Hornady / Rhino SP Reloads : 100 yds 2 “ high    &  200 yds  = ZERO. These grain bullets are suitable for mosy plains game. Therefore approximate 2 - 3 “ drop from 100 – 200 yds. 250 - 260 - 270 grn and 300 grain ammo suitable for cape Buffalo is also available.
