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 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.

We were privileged to welcome Hadrian and Barbara from Austria to South Africa on their first plains game safari to Africa. Austria has a strong hunting tradition and we hoped that Hadrian and Barbara would have an excellent hunt with us in the Karoo. We set out initially to hunt a few cull/management animals and once they were acclimatised to the local conditions, to then focus on hunting some good trophies. They hunted with my Sako .270 Winchester using 130gr Pro Am rounds.
