Being a avid Bow & Rifle hunter Nico has bagged and conducted numerous successfull hunts with both local and intenational clients. With more than 30 years experience together with our partner outfits, you can be assured of an experience of a lifetime.
We hunt prodominantly by means of spot and stalk as is this seems to be method preferred by most hunters whether hunting with a Bow or Rifle. We do however try to accommodate all of our clients needs when it comes to hunting and therefore we also make use of hides that are also wheelchair friendly.
Most of our hunting happens in the Limpopo Province and Freestate Privince, and our concessions are all in Malaria free areas.
We also have concessions in the Northern Cape, Mpumalanga, Eastern Cape, North West Province as well as Kwazulu Natal, these are mostly in Non-Malaria areas however we will advise you if Malaria or any other special medication is needed.
