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 a limited number of hunters and guests 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 day 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, deep sea fishing, beautiful beaches, shopping and fine dining are some of the activities guests can enjoy on a 2 night stay in Plett. Experience a guided tour to Cape Town and Franschhoek Winelands area as an add on tour to your hunting safari.  

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 240 000 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.

  • Kudu

    Our 2021 season opens with a bang!

    It was at first light on the 5th day that our kudu hunting fortunes changed. We'd heard talk of a large kudu bull that liked to graze in a particular spot at the river in the early morning. We spotted him ambling away towards the thicker bush above the river edge and knew right away that he was a spectacular bull. He never saw the danger from behind until the last instant. Greg's first bullet him hit hard and the follow up shots sent him crumbling into the undergrowth. He truly was a magnificent beast with a large mane, thickset body and beautifully shaped horns. BANG - in an instant we'd made good on all our previous kudu hunting efforts.

  • Artistry Outwest Taxidermy Completed Mounts

    Henry and Diane Vancorbach of Artistry Outwest Taxidermy in Weippe, Idaho hunted with Karoo Wild Safaris in 2017. The Covid-19 slowdown has finally allowed them some time to mount their own animals. The attention to detail and their commitment to the art of custom taxidermy is superb.
