The Moordenaars Karoo is situated in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The concession is approximately 300 km from Cape Town International Airport. Please refer to the map provided.
We will mainly focus on Grey Rhebok and Klipspringer. Other game available includes Greater Kudu, Gemsbok, Common Duiker and Steenbok.
You will spend your first evening under African skies, enjoying a traditional South African fire-cooked meal and some cold ones alongside a campfire. While hunting in this beautiful part of the Western Cape, we will be staying in a farm style lodge with all facilities. The rooms are serviced daily and we also provide a laundry service.
Arms ammunition and hunting conditions
Hunting in the Karoo can be some of the most challenging hunting you can do in all of Africa. The distances that we will be shooting can range between 100 and 250 meters. In order not to do too much damage to the trophy, especially the Klipspringer and Grey Rhebok, flat-shooting calibers in the .22-250 - .270 range are preferable, although larger calibers, using solids are also fine. Telescopic sights with a 6x magnification are more than adequate. We will work the hunt on foot in the hills and hunting fitness is a pre-requisite.
Climate and vegetation
Temperatures vary from 0°C to 15°C in winter and 15°C to 35°C in summer. Vegetation mainly consists of dwarf Karoo shrubland.
Clothing and gear
During the months of April and October light clothing can be worn during the day and a light jacket at night. From May to September, the nights and early mornings are cold, which requires warmer clothing and gloves. Do not forget your pair of well-worn boots, a hat and sunscreen.
