The diverse habitat, ranging from barren windswept mountains, down to sub-tropical low-lying wetlands, supports the largest variety of game birds available in the country.

Game bird hunting season in South Africa; Opens 1st June for Game bird hunting in South Africa; closing 15th September with July to September being the prime months for game bird shooting in southern Africa. The beginning of the season in March & April supplies the finest hot barrelled rock pigeon shooting worldwide.
The variety of game bird species available ensure a varied game bird experience. In our northern areas, huge flocks of helmeted Guinea Fowl thrive. Seven species of Francolin, including the extremely challenging Grey wing, in the vast mountains of the Eastern Cape, above 6,000 feet; and hunted over well-trained pointers. Waterfowl, of which there are twelve varied species, including the huge Spur winged Goose, shot from pit blinds and over decoys or flighting back to their roosting pans. For hot barrel bird shooting, nothing can beat the enormous flocks of rock pigeons & doves shot over sunflower and maize.
Game bird shooting safaris tailored to suit each groups needs, which can include photography, including sight-seeing for plains game locally, catering for non-shooting companions. Due to the different game bird shooting options and species, emphasis placed on quality and variety rather than quantity. However, early season shooting always sees enormous bags of rock pigeons.
We recommend using 12 Gauge semiauto shot guns, as ammunition is easily available and cost-effective in comparison to twenty bore cartridges. Four hunter’s minimum; should you wish to book the entire Lodge for your group’s game bird shooting safari, we cater for single clients or two friends within a shared Lodge.
