Sometimes it may be that the trophy fee is higher on certain other landowners hunting concessions, on certain species, but the choice to hunt on such concession areas rests with the hunter, if we are out of quota on our property.
Bushbuck and Warthog are available but not on our ranches. They occur is good huntable numbers nearer the coast so you will hunt out of another base for these with a local PH we work with from that area. You should allow for about 2 days per animal because seeing them is greatly affected by the weather and the coastal terrain is very thick bush. Additional Fee to go there will be payable : 1 hunter $ 150 / hunter / night, 2 hunters $ 100 / hunter / night, plus trophy fees.
Kudu hunts - sometimes we need to go to the above area nearer the coast and an additional fee to go there will be payable : 1 hunter $ 150 / hunter / night , 2 hunters $ 100 / hunter / night, plus trophy fee. Reasons for this are Kudu - they are not easy to get, sometimes our local areas are out of quota or we just aren't seeing any good bulls and you want to get a your Kudu.
Giraffe, which are rarely available, require collection in the field right after hunting by our Local taxidermist to prevent hair slip and assistance with skinning in the field. This additional collection and skinning fee cost is about $ 250 on top of the trophy fee payable to the Taxidermist once you get his bill for all the other trophys on your hunt.
A reminder that any animal not exported out of South Africa 14 % VAT tax must be charged onto Trophy fee. Exporting even just one part or some of the animals you hunt will mean no VAT tax needs to be charged.
Costs besides the Safari are :
Taxidermy, Trophy export permits, Customs trophy clearance fees and Shipping of trophys to your home, click here for this info and cost examples : Taxidermy and Shipping
A very broad and average estimate to give hunters and idea for budgetting - to get an animal shoulder mounted in South Africa and shipped and landed at your home overseas is about a total of approximately $ 1300 per animal and Raw prep / Dip, pack and Ship, landed at your home is about $ 500 per animal ( then you still have taxidermy costs your end ).
Pre or post safari - hotels, meals, taxis / transport , allow for approx $ 150 per hunter.
