Birdshooting

Overnighting in Johannesburg?  We offer one day birdshoots as an alternative to the usual shopping and sightseeing. 

One Day Mixed Bag Hunts

Available from May to August.  Early morning pickup at the client’s hotel, with a light breakfast served on arrival at the hunting area.

From sunrise until approximately 9am waterfowl, followed by a midmorning walkup with dogs on guineafowl and francolin. Lunch served in the veld, and the menu will include a variety of gamebirds.

Afternoon on pigeons and doves, with a final walkup hunt on guineafowl and francolin.

Late afternoon / early evening return to hotel.

One Day Pigeon and Dove shooting.

Available from mid February to November

These can be arranged throughout the year, and whilst these birds are recognised as agricultural pests, they provide very testing shooting, and are great eating.  The numbers available for shooting depend on the province hunted, and the time of the year, and can be hot barrel shooting.

Early morning pickup at the client’s hotel, with a light breakfast served on arrival at the hunting area.  Shooting throughout the day, with lunch, refreshments and snacks. 

Late afternoon return to the hotel.

Multi Day Species Specific Hunts

For additional hunting days, or individual species including overnight accommodation at a game lodge by arrangement.  Please email to discuss species availability and costs.  These hunts are tailor made to suit the hunter’s requirements.
