After 2013 Botswana will close all hunting.
This is the last chance to hunt elephant in Botswana. We are able to offer elephant (any weight) for $24,500. The average will likely be 35-40lbs per side but we've taken some at 65lbs per side. Contact us now as space is limited.
Includes day rate and trophy fee.
Hunts start and end either in Johannesburg or Cape Town. South Africa is comprised of nine provinces or states varying from tropical coastlands to mountains to wide open plains, which most people relate to their image of Africa. With this "World in one country" we can offer an amazing variety of plains and big game from the Common Duiker to the African Elephant.
April - October is the general hunting season and safaris run from 7 to 30 days; year round sunshine allows us the luxury of a long season. Mid-winter is June-July. In the Northern Province during the coldest time of the year pre-dawn temperatures are often a bit below freezing but by mid-day temperatures can be in the 60-70's. Temperatures in KwaZulu-Natal are a bit warmer and the climate is similar to North Florida in the United States in winter.
What is a typical day like? At Bobby Hansen Safaris a typical day starts about 45 minutes before daylight with your wakeup call. Next is breakfast and coffee or juice while the truck is prepared by the staff for the days hunt. Water, softdrinks, and a box lunch are packed in the cooler for lunch in the field. You will usually leave for the hunting area just after daybreak and travel from 15 to 45 minutes. You will hunt using various techniques until the midday lunch break of about one hour. The lunch break will sometimes be spent watching a waterhole or other nearby travel route while you eat. After lunch you will continue hunting until dark. When you arrive back at base camp the bar will be open and hors d'oeuvres will be served. Dinners will be a variety of hearty meals including wild game such as kudu, eland, and impala. South African wines are known worldwide for their quality and will be available with dinner.
