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. 

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.


  • Andrew and son, Alexander, hunt with Karoo Wild Safaris in South Africa

    We hunted with Andrew and his 12 year old son, Alexander in the Graaff Reinet area. Andrew is originally from South Africa but now lives in the US. Alexander had shot before with a air rifle but had never hunted with a hunting rifle. Andrew used my CZ 7x64 with 170 grain rounds. Alexander shot with my Brno .243 loaded with 100 grain rounds. We fitted a suppressor to the .243 to reduce the felt recoil even further.

    Buddy and Lori, returned to South Africa for their 2nd trip and hunt with us. This time, they were on their honeymoon and after a 7 day hunt with us had planned a shark cage dive in Mossel Bay and some time in Betty's Bay. After Betty's they planned on driving further down the coast to spend some time in Cape Town, visiting the winelands at Franschoek and over-nighting in Oudtshoorn on their return to Port Elizabeth.
