The concession is approximately 450 km from Kimberley Airport. Please refer to the map provided.

Accommodation

While hunting in this beautiful part of the Kalahari, we will be staying and relaxing in a four-star lodge with spacious en suite air conditioned rooms with dressing room and small lounge area. Absolute luxury is what we have and bringing this to the bush will enhance your African hunting experience. The rooms are serviced daily and we also provide a laundry service. Lovingly prepared traditional cooking as well as tasty continental cuisine will round off this unforgettable experience. Non-hunters will appreciate relief from a hot African sun in the cool depths of the pool or under the shade of our adjoining lapa. The well-stocked bar is also at your disposal and you are welcome to whatever you like.

Arms ammunition and hunting conditions

The distances that we will be shooting can range between 70 and 250 meters. Flat-shooting calibers in the .270 Winchester - .300 Winchester Magnum range are preferable, although larger calibers, such as .375 Holland Magnum can come in handy. Telescopic sights with a 6x magnification are more than adequate. Most hunting is done by walking and stalking.
