Out Of Africa Adventurous Safaris hunts in several regions of various terrain. The concessions are reserved exclusively for our clients in large, private hunting areas. Dense bush, savannahs and hills are the habitats in which the game reaches maturity. The variety of regions allows us to offer a wide range of game with exceptional opportunities to bag valuable trophies. We can offer you 60 species and sub-species in these African countries (South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Tanzania). The hunting season in South Africa and Botswana is from February to November, in Zimbabwe from March to November, and in Tanzania from July to November. You will be hunting according to your wishes, possibilities and ability. Because of the vastness of the hunting area, we will track in 4×4 vehicles. Once the game has been sighted, it will be hunted on foot. It is at this moment that the actual hunt commences with its challenges, hazards and beauty.
Your trophies will be marked, salted, and field prepared prior to being sent to a taxidermist. Out of Africa Adventurous Safaris will do all Taxidermy documentation and arrangements. Trophy Solutions Africa (Dip to ship in 99 days) will take care of the shipping of the trophies:
