Cape buffalo hunting areas

We have access to three different spotted hyena hunting areas in South Africa. One of the hunting areas is in the proximity of the Kruger National Park. Time permitting, a visit to this world renowned 5 million acre game preserve can be undertaken.

All three our hunting concessions have sufficient spotted hyena populations allowing for a bigger than average opportunity at successfully hunting a hyena.

What other animals can you hunt

We prefer to hunt all animals on the same hunting concession we are staying at. However, due to habitat requirements, some animals only occur a short distance from from where we will be hunting. If you have specific other animals you wish to hunt along with your Cape buffalo, please let us know in advance so we can set up the required permissions and permits. These are the animals we will generally be able to hunt where we are staying at:

Blesbok – common


Blue wildebeest



Red hartebeest
Cape buffalo Roan antelope – tag required

Duiker Sable




Tsessebe – tag required

Hippo – tag required




Kudu Zebra – common

Cape buffalo hunting videos

Below are two Cape buffalo hunting videos depicting two different scenarios. The one on the left is a video of buffalo hunting gone wrong, and the one on the right is a Cape buffalo hunting video of a buffalo hunt with a happy ending. It would be pure speculation if the buffalo charge was a result of a bad or a good first shot. In our opinion, Cape buffalo are ill tempered and can charge unprovoked.
