If you hunt in the Limpopo province in the north, you will primarily find the classic open savanna with red sand. More centrally, you will find the Free State province which is characterized by large desert areas that turn into small mountains. South Africa offers a lot, and all biotopes have their own game species and different ways in which the hunting is done. You can ask the outfitters for advice on what season they would recommend for hunting a specific species.
South Africa is characterized by both ancient tribes and the colonial period in terms of culture, tradition and cooking.

When hunting in South Africa you will be greeted by very friendly and polite people who are very hospitable.
