Plains Game Hunting South Africa
Hunt the Eastern Cape, South Africa
The Karoo – a malaria free space of rugged mountains and endless savannah plains. A place where the land meets the sky and all your African hunting dreams are fulfilled.
Karoo Wild Safaris promises an exceptional plains game hunting safari. Family owned and managed, we have extensive knowledge in the hunting and hospitality fields. We offer hunters, couples and families a hunting and vacation experience of a lifetime.
We only accommodate one hunter or group at a time offering you our personal attention throughout your safari with us. We still believe in the adventure of hunting, the thrill of walking and stalking an animal, of discovering something new and unknown. We like it wild and our properties are large wildlife areas with no internal fences.
Non-hunters are welcome to join the hunting party or partake in one of the numerous non-hunting activities and tours in the area. Visits to the Addo Elephant National Park and the historical town of Graaff-Reinet are some of the popular activities enjoyed by our guests. Our sea-side apartment in scenic Plettenberg Bay is the perfect base for exploring the attractions that the coastal area has to offer. Shark cage diving, whale and dolphin safaris, the world's highest bungee jump, elephant back rides, deep sea and river fishing, beautiful beaches, shopping and fine dining are some of the activities guests can enjoy on a 1-3 night stay in Plett.
Karoo Wild Safaris is owned by Victor Watson. A fifth generation Karoo settler/landowner and hunter, he has a passion for the area and its' animals. Victor completed his Professional Hunting qualification at the age of 21 and has been actively guiding clients for 15 years. Lindsay, Victor’s wife, runs the four star graded lodge and prepares delicious cuisine to the highest international standards.
Spanning some 160 000 acres, our privately owned wildlife-only hunting properties and concessions offer a wide variety of terrain teeming with plains game. This is kudu country, our area boasting the highest density of these elusive animals in Africa.

Directly therefafter they were to fly to Zambia to hunt buffalo and sable and visit Victoria Falls.

We were thrilled to welcome Dan and Celine from Ohio back to the Karoo. They visited us in 2013 and hunted a kudu, gemsbok, impala and cape springbok. . They'd promised to bring their three girls next time they returned to South Africa and it was great to meet Morgan, Abby and Natalie.

It was the fourth day of our hunt with Keith when it happened. We'd spent the day viewing game in the Addo Elephant National Park and had returned to the lodge at mid afternoon. The collusion and conniving had begun the evening before and plans had been set in motion. Jake, his girlfriend, Lauren and I set out in search of "a monster kudu'' Mitchell and Nibbs had seen on a far mountain. We drove up the steep jeep track and at a pre-determined spot we stopped the vehicle and continued on foot. If Jake was nervous, he wasn't showing it and went about the whole business in his normal calm way.

Blake and Pati from Fort Worth, Texas and Mike and Bev from Colorado Springs decided to pull the trigger on an African hunt and holiday. They are long time friends from when both couples lived in Alaska and for Blake and Mike it was a renewal of a hunting friendship that extended back to bear hunting in the Alaskan wilderness in the 1990's. Lindsay and I were humbled that they chose Karoo Wild Safaris as their outfitter to hunt with in South Africa.
