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.

  • Veteran African hunter hunts with Karoo Wild on his first Eastern Cape safari

    We were delighted to host George on his first hunt in the Eastern Cape. He's a hunting veteran with several trips to Limpopo and other African countries under his belt. George brought his custom Christensen Arms 6.5 Creedmoor with him. Top of his list were several rarer species within the  tiny ten group of antelope and the three springbok colour variants. With its well documented accuracy, George had brought the perfect weapon for the hunt at hand.
