South Africa offers the widest range of game species to the sportsman in all of Africa. More than 30 species of game can be hunted including several unique and distinctive Cape species. Plains game hunting brings more hunters to Africa each year than all of the Big Five combined.  Southern Africa can boast of more species of mammals than any other place on the globe.

Eastcape & Karoo Safaris specializes in plains game hunts in the Eastern Cape. With 4 lodges we are able to hunt in excess of 30 species of game covering defferent types of terrain. Our lodges are all in close proximity of each other and this means that there are not too many long uncomfortable daily trips.

The uniqueness and size of our concession areas make each day a new experience. Due to our excellent relationship with surrounding landowners we have access to more than 500 000 acres of additional surrounding hunting areas.

Our plains game hunting terrain varies from open rolling veldt plains to mountainous thick bush. Each of these areas offers a unique habitat, which is ideally suited to certain of the plains game species and holds it’s own special challenges for the plains game hunter. The hunting techniques that we employ can vary based upon the preference of the hunter.  It can range from walk and stalk, to glassing and hunting from a blind with bow and arrow.  A client with a disability or anyone whose physical activity is limited by age or medical condition can hunt from one of our well-equipped hunting vehicles. Hunting the thick bush, shots can often be taken well inside 100 yards; the open rolling veldt plains may demand shots out to 300 yards. Encounters with elephant and buffalo are a common occurrence, and you will often hear the call of a distant jackal as you enjoy sundowners around the nightly campfire.

The vehicles and other equipment we utilize are maintained to the highest standard for we realize the importance of well functioning equipment in remote areas and difficult situations. Vehicles are 4X4 and have been specially fitted with equipment to make life easier in the bush.

The best months for hunting are from April through to the end of September; these are our cooler winter months.  Daytime temperatures are reasonably warm (up to 18oC/ 65oF), with nights being colder (sometimes as low as -4oF / 25oC), although temperatures usually remain above 0oC / 32oF. We do sometimes get snow. Rainfall occurs only in summer and averages around 400mm (16 ins) per annum. This average has little meaning however as rainfall in successive years can be as low as 150mm (6 ins) and as high as 650mm (26ins).

We offer the following:

  • Plainsgame hunts 
  • Big game hunts
  • Driven / Cull / Management hunting
  • Bow hunting                                                              
  • Wingshooting
