A Typical Day on Safari

Hunters: A typical hunting day would start just before dawn at which time coffee and rusks are enjoyed. A selection of breakfast cereals, yogurt and juice is also available at this time. We then embark on the morning hunt. We would normally hunt until about 11:00am at which time we would return to camp for brunch (A full meal which is a combination of breakfast and lunch). Some time is then devoted to relaxing in camp. The hunt is resumed at about 14:30 from which time we hunt until sunset.

The method of hunting employed depends on the preference of the client and can consist of either waking and stalking, hunting from blinds or special vantage points from which we glass and ambush animals. The option of hunting from one of our well equipped vehicles is also available should you have any medical problems, or are limited by not being able to walk long distances. Your Professional Hunter will discuss these options with you after arrival. All of these options are always available. It is not necessary to let us know which method you prefer prior to your arrival.

Observers: Observers are welcome to accompany the hunters on safari, alternatively they can relax in camp. Should the observers in your group be interested in visiting some of the highlights in the area while the hunters are in the field, this can be arranged at an additional charge of $ 80 per observer per day. The additional cost is incurred because we have to send a dedicated guide to take care of observers. On the typical safari observers normally prefer to accompany hunters which does not incur any additional charges.
