LIST Animal Species

Let's brainstorm the various species you can hunt in Africa

It is important as a hunter to plan your next hunting trip and consider the various animal species you want to hunt and therefore we have list animal species.  Once we have established your 'hunting profile' we as professional hunting outfitters will then plan each hunt with you according to the animal's known profile and characteristics when on alert.  Especially when hunting dangerous game, it is always recommended to prepare in cases of wounded animals.  Each species offers its own challenges and when you can successfully meet those challenges, you will most definitely have a satisfying hunt.
