A SEAMLESS HUNTING EXPERIENCE
IN THE NAMA KAROO
When you hunt at Otterskloof, your expedition is led by experienced and fully trained professional hunters, (affectionately known as a PH) and trackers, ensuring not only an unforgettable experience but everlasting memories that will entice your return. The serene setting, coupled with the day’s events will make for good conversation around the fire at sunset.
We offer both the seasoned and less experienced hunter a hunt to suit your taste and preferences.
The vastness of the Reserve coupled with the varied topography makes every hunt different – from high open plateaus to deep thorny ravines, the environment is not only aesthetically pleasing, but offers a different challenge on every hunt.
The following species may be added to your hunting list (depending on availability):
- Roan antelope
- Sable antelope
- Black wildebeest (white tailed)
- Blue wildebeest (brindle tailed)
- Cape eland
- Mountain reedbuck
- Red hartebeest
- Red lechwe
- White blesbuck
- Cape buffalo
Sadly, all good things come to an end as the epigram goes. Once the hunt is over, trained staff will prepare the trophies and hides for your convenience. In addition to that, the meat will be processed and packed in a hygiene facility, should you chose to do so.
NATURE CONSERVATION IS AN ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITY
Our free roaming herds are the result of our game management program, which approximates natural selection. Our aim is to manage the survival and improvement of our flourishing and genetically balanced herds in natural surroundings.
The hunting of game, when guided by a professional hunter, contributes to our conservation program. The absence of natural predators and the importance of a sustainable natural environment for the animals, for instance, makes selling and culling (through hunting) of animals compulsory, if conservation is to be achieved. Culling selected mature bulls makes for exceptional trophies.
