Rifle hunting dangerous game in Africa

African big 5 hunting packages in South Africa and Zimbabwe with Hunting in Africa Safaris. To ensure your hunt is legal you have to comply with all African hunting laws per country. The Professional Hunter (PH) that guides you on your dangerous game hunt needs to have a Big 5 license – this means he has sufficient African Big 5 hunting experience to keep you away from harm. It does not matter how much the cost of an African Big 5 hunting safari is, a professional hunter cannot buy experience.

Our African Big 5 hunting packages for 2014 and 2015 are all-inclusive. The cost of the Big five hunting safari includes all tags, fees, daily rates and trophy fee.

You will be billed only once for all costs involved – the price you see is the price you pay. In the event of an African Big 5 hunt being unsuccessful in terms of a Big 5 animal not being harvested, you will not have to pay the trophy fee.

The Big 5 African animals are African elephant, Cape buffalo, lion, leopard and white rhino. To hunt African elephant, leopard and white rhino you need a special license in the form of a CITES tag. If we do not have a CITES tag a hunt cannot be legal. Of the African big 5 we consider the Cape buffalo as the most dangerous game animal to hunt.

Hunting dangerous game videos are in the videos section.
