When planning an African hunting safari, especially one that will require international travel from the US, you want to ensure a smooth trip with all the necessities taken care of.
Expert Tip: Contact a hunting outfitter to assist you. They function to make your and your guests' life more comfortable by putting together a hunting package.
There are different levels of hunters, which means that hunting packages should also cater to individuals that differ in field experience, as it would be a waste to plan an expert excursion for a beginner hunter. Most hunting packages are all-inclusive and tend to a variety of services that a hunter requires.
•• The service of a professional hunter (will act as the leader in the field);
•• A hunting vehicle on the premises which will be at your and your group's disposal;
•• The services of trackers and skinners;
•• Accommodation of your choice (choose from basic camps to luxurious lodges);
•• All catering needs;
•• Laundry services;
•• Field preparation of trophies;
•• Hunting licenses;
•• All transport by road for the duration of your safari while hunting.
•• An average of 5-6 days accommodation;
•• Species: Kudu, Impala, Wildebeest, Springbuck, and buffalo;
•• Average prices ranging from $3,000-$10,000;
•• Locations ranging from Limpopo to the Eastern Cape;
•• Up to four trophy animals.
In most cases, you have the opportunity to customize your package by substituting one or two features or perhaps even adding a day or two for other adventures. The best, and most popular, hunting safari packages are the ones that are flexible and genuinely all-inclusive.
