African lion hunting safari packages South Africa special allowances

You can either do the lion hunting packages as a stand-alone hunt, or you are also permitted to add any other plains game or dangerous game trophies on this hunt. Most noteworthy is there will be no additional daily rates applicable in addition to the lion hunting package fee if you add other trophies to the lion hunt.

 

Lion hunting trophy fees are determined by the size and color of the mane. Consequently, older lions with black mane cost more than younger lions with tan colored mane. As a result, we have divided our lions into five distinct categories allowing you to decide which lion you would like to hunt. The aforementioned will assist when you have very little choice due to budget and offers on the table.
