How To Make The Most Out Of A Guided Hunt In Africa

Today I’m going to talk a couple things that you as the client can do to make the most out of a guided hunt in Africa. Just like in the last episode, some of the things I’ll be talking about in this episode are specific to hunting in Africa, but there’s also a lot of good advice for guided hunting in general, regardless of where you’ll be hunting. So even if you’re not considering booking a hunt in Africa, you should still pay attention because you might learn something useful.

Feel free to send me a message with any feedback you have on the show as well as topic requests for future episodes.

Show Resources

I’ve been in your shoes and believe me, I understand how tough it can be to choose a trustworthy outfitter for a guided hunt. Most guides and outfitters are really good, but there are a few bad apples that you really want to avoid at all costs.

For that reason, I founded Big Game Hunting Adventures to help pair hunters with honest, skilled, and reputable guides all over the world. I’ve already done the research to ensure every outfitter I book for makes the grade and will set you up with a great hunt. 

So if you want a classic African hunting safari, get in touch with me at BigGameHuntingAdventures.com and I’ll set you up with the African safari you’ve always dreamed of. Also, mention that you heard about Big Game Hunting Adventures though the big game hunting podcast for a special bonus.


If you want to hunt with a reputable hunting outfitter in Africa and are looking for an authentic hunt, visit BigGameHuntingAdventures.com. I’ll set you up with an outstanding hunting safari in the northwest portion of South Africa’s Limpopo Province where you’ll get the incredible experience of a classic safari on foot in the South African bushveld with a top notch outfitter, professional hunter, and trackers. This hunting area is located in one of the least developed areas left in southern Africa and is home to 4 of the Big 5 (buffalo, lion, leopard, and elephant) as well as other iconic African species like hippo and giraffe. It also a reasonable drive from Johannesburg, but still has that “wild Africa” feel to it that you don’t find many other places on the continent.

In addition to having outstanding fair chase hunting for plains game animals like kudu, nyala, waterbuck, blue wildebeest, bushbuck, impala, zebra, sable warthog, duiker, and bushpig there, that area also has excellent cape buffalo hunting. We can also set up a trip to Kruger National Park after your hunt. This is where you need to go for the hunting experience of a lifetime.
