Think about a combination hunt

Hunt a spotted hyena with your Cape buffalo

Spotted hyena are by far one of the nastiest looking predators we can legally hunt. Spotted hyena numbers are regulated by the whim of an official sitting behind a desk.

We have very limited numbers of spotted hyena tags available.                        At $ 3 500-00 this is almost too good a deal to pass up on.

The full $ 3 500-00 will be credited towards your final bill if we cannot get you onto a mature hyena.

Hunt a sable antelope with your Cape buffalo

Sable antelope are by far one of the most majestic antelope species in the world. The sable population has grown dramatically over the last few years making them more affordable.

We have a number of sable tags available. The only issue for you will be to decide between a sub 40″ specimen, or a truly remarkable over 40″ specimen.

Sable less than 40″ will go for $ 3 250 if taken in conjunction with your Cape buffalo hunt.

Sable larger than 40″ will go for $ 4 000 if taken in conjunction with your Cape buffalo hunt.

We look forward to talking with you some more!

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

Nyala

Blue wildebeest

Ostrich

Bushbuck

Red hartebeest
Cape buffalo Roan antelope – tag required

Duiker Sable

Gemsbok

Steenbok

Giraffe

Tsessebe – tag required

Hippo – tag required

Warthog

Impala

Waterbuck

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.
