Gallery of African hunting safari pictures South Africa
At Mkulu African hunting Safaris we believe that, apart from your trophies, your gallery of African hunting safari pictures will remind you of a great hunt in Africa.
It is our mission to ensure that the quality of the hunting pictures we take have to be of the highest quality. We try to make sure that every picture is in focus and that we do not cut off the rifle or a potion of the animal when taking that ultimate picture.
Background for African hunting gallery pictures is very important. Avoid having the hunting vehicle in the background. Try and have no shadows falling across the picture frame. Take pictures from different angles to try and compensate for a two-dimensional image. Take several pictures from the same angle – sometimes the hunter, or anyone else has his / her eyes closed when the picture is taken.
Make sure of the position of the sun before you set up the animal. We want maximum sunlight and exposure on the animal and the hunter. With
auto-focus, many cameras will focus on the closest object in the picture.
Make sure there are no protruding branches, twigs or grass stems in the way. Another option to assist the camera on focusing the complete picture is to move away from the trophy and then zoom in from there.
At Mkulu African Hunting Safaris we also offer the opportunity of you creating your own gallery of African hunting safari pictures with an African wildlife photo safari. These African wildlife photo safari tours are conducted to areas where we can reasonably expect to find fantastic photo opportunities. These images will certainly take you back many years after returning home.
Lastly, we also have African hunting videos on YouTube. These African hunting videos put words to pictures. It portrays emotion that cannot be conveyed in pictures alone. The YouTube hunting videos serve as an important marketing tool if you have customers you want to treat on any African hunting safari.

A typical hunting day
We expect you to be comfortable at all times when in any of the hunting camps we stay at. This is what a typical hunting day will be like when hunting with Hunting in Africa Safaris:
Wake-up call in the region of 5 30 am
A light breakfast is served at 6 am that consists of yoghurt, fresh fruit, muesli, corn flakes and other cereals together with rusks (a local delicacy) and coffee or tea.
By 6 30 am it is light enough to see properly and we set off to hunt our designated area for the day. If we are lucky enough to harvest an animal within the first few hours of the hunt we return to the skinning shed where a trained skinner will skin the animal according to your instructions. This is where some of the prime cuts of meat will be utilized for you to taste what you hunted.
By 11 am we break for brunch where a full meal is served that consists of a wide variety of possible local specialities like vetkoek (fat cake) served with hamburger meat, salads, boerewors (farmer’s sausage), beans or any other local faire prepared by the resident Chef.
A short siesta sees us depart for hunting again at about 2 pm when we will return (hopefully) to the skinning shed. After you freshen up we have a few cold ones by the welcoming bushveld fire, reliving the happenings of the day. Tomorrow we start all over again!
Please bear in mind this is Africa where we have something known as Africa time. This means a set departure time may or may not be the specified time and we can run up to 15 minutes late. Do not let this dampen your enthusiasm as there is always a very good reason for any delay!
Some of the local farmers we meet up with are very religious people who will say a prayer before each meal while others will hold hands for the duration of the prayer. If you are not a religious person all we ask is to respect the local customs.
Yet another interesting feature we may come across is when a host only speaks in Afrikaans (one of South Africa’s nine official languages) to your PH. This is not because the host is unfriendly but simply due to the fact that he cannot speak English fluently enough to feel comfortable speaking to you.
Bringing a binocular along is a must as there are so many things to see even when not hunting. South Africa boasts more than 500 different bird species of which most are rather colorful and a delight to come across. One of the more recognisable species would be the southern yellow-billed hornbill, also known as Zazu in the epic animation move: The Lion King.
