It might not seem obvious at first, but hunting safaris play a vital role in the conservation of every African species. With grasslands taken up by farming and the reduction of large predators, carefully controlled hunting practices control populations and provide vital support to local economies. Regulations are strict, and there are only specific locations and times when certain animals can be hunted.
We cater for hunts from a minimum of 7 days to the ideal period of 10 days. The maximum number of 6-8 hunters at any one time can be accommodated, Kei River Hunting Safaris has fully qualified, experienced professional hunters and trackers in our employ. We also use freelance professional hunters for bigger split groups.
Our clients are familiar with their own weapons so bring them along with you. The ideal weapons are 7.62, 270, 30-06, 7.64, 7mm Mag, 300 Win Mag and 340 Weatherby.
