Hunting Areas: Although we shoot birds throughout Southern Africa, the more successful areas are the Orange Free State, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa. Bird shoots are added onto big game in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.
Professional Hunters & Staff
All professional hunters are fully licensed and experienced in shotgun shooting. Methods of shooting are from blinds over decoys, walk up over birddogs and driven shoots with beaters. As we are also professional outfitters all trophy preparations and skinning are done by our staff and is always supervised by one of our professional hunters.
Shotguns & Ammunition:
12 and 20 gauge guns work well for our types of birds. Ammo can be purchase here as there is a limit on what you are allowed to bring into the countries. Both calibers are freely available.
Our exclusive concessions with luxury amenities, where a wide variety of waterfowl, doves, pigeons, guinea fowl and francolin can be hunted, are located South Africa and South Africa. Bird hunting with us is all in all, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Few people realize that the largest variety of game birds is most probably found in South Africa. Dove and pigeons are shot over grain fields. Duck and geese hunting takes place on lakes, pans and river systems.
The species hunted include Spur wing geese, Egyptian geese, Yellow billed duck, and Red billed teal and White-faced duck. Shooting methods are based on shooting the birds on their flight paths in the early mornings and the evenings, across water, at Pans and Lakes.

Doves and Pigeons:
Our bags are normally made up of Cape turtledoves, Red Eyed morning doves and Rock pigeons. This is a must for the wing shooter who likes to be kept busy with a variety of challenging shots.
Guinea fowl and Francolin:
The guinea fowl is without doubt one of the best game birds in Africa. They are normally shot on driven hunts, which take place in cornfields or long grass. Francolin are split into Red necked and Swain sons. This is normally combined with the guinea fowl hunt as they are often found in the same habitat.
Both waterfowl and upland game birds make up Africa's game bird population. Waterfowl are dependent on aquatic environments and include ducks and geese and snipe. Upland game birds include grouse, francolin, quail, pheasant, partridge and guinea fowl.
Southern Africa sees the most successful sustainable utilization game management policies with South Africa establishing some very successful ventures. We've included a list of game birds of southern Africa, not all of them being suitable for sustainable hunting. In many instances, game birds are shot as an additional activity to trophy hunting.
