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.

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.

Paul from the UK joined us for a 10 day hunt for some lesser hunted species and some plains game not taken on previous trips. He had hunted before in Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia and Kenya (pre-ban) and we were excited to welcome him to the Eastern Cape. He alternated between shooting with my 270 and 243 Win Winchester using Pro Am ammunituion in both.

We’re hunting with Tim and Teri from Louisianna, US. They currently live in Nigeria and booked a 10 day plains game hunt with us. Tim and I discussed his wish list prior to him booking and the idea was that he would book two hunts across a 10 month period in 2017 and 2018. That would enable him to get excellent trophies and have a relaxing hunt spread over two years. On his initial list is eland, kudu, gemsbok, nyala, sable, red lechwe, impala, blue wildebeest, waterbuck and red hartebeest.

Ferdinando and Eleanora, from Italy, returned for an second hunt with us this year. They last hunted with Karoo Wild in the heat of January. In our wildest dreams did we think they'd be hunting in snow which is how it came to be on their vaal rhebuck hunt. Ferdinando is surely one of the few hunters in the world who can claim to have hunted the same area in 40 and 0 degrees Celsius!
