Backpack Hunting Safaris

IMG_0985USA 2015

Backpack Hunting Safaris is probably the best way to experience true nature.

Hike and hunt during the day, dine and sleep under the African sky, just you, nature, your ph, rifle and backpack.

Our Backpack hunts are described by Hard-Core sheep- and Goat hunters as “ one of the hardest hunts they have ever done!”.

 

Hunters must be in excellent physical condition as one walks the hunting area by day, carrying along water, food, ammunition and other camping necessities.

Species includes Leopard, Mountain Zebra, Oryx, Kudu and Klipspringer.

 

(Also available Free Range unfenced areas in South Africa for Mountain and Vaal Reedbuck, Bushbuck and Nyala).

Suggested training program

Consult with your doctor if you have or suspect any physical illnesses that may affect you during training.

Purchase a good pair of lightweight hiking boots and a pair of jogging shoes.

Start walking a mile or two each day, and slowly build it to 5 miles a day 3 months prior to trip.

After you feel comfortable with the walking, start to jog and walk together.

Eventually try to jog 3 to 5 miles every day.

On the off days, carry your backpack with 10 to 20 pounds of weight and walk 2 to 5 miles with your hiking boots on.
