How safe is it on a hunting trip to SA?

Usually this is the first question people ask. As people living in the Eastern Cape of South Africa we know that it is safe. Your safety is our highest priority, weather it will be in the bush during hunting or visiting our touring sites.

Can my family come along?

By all means. Depending on age of children arrangements can be made to accommodate. If your companion wants to go with you to take pictures while you are hunting, it can also be arranged.

Are bugs and mosquito’s a problem?

They are not a problem. (no malaria mosquito’s) but bringing some insect repellent will be advised.


Normally 10% at most places.

What animals are most commonly hunted?

We specialise in the hunting of kudu, blue wildebeest, impala, blesbuck, springbuck, bushbuck, grey duiker and steenbuck.

Firearms and ammo?

We prefer that you bring the firearm that you are use to. This can be arranged with any airline. Firearms can also be rented at Iliwa Safaris.

Clothes to bring with?

Clothes should be of neutral colour. A windproof jacket is essential as well as a warm sweater. A good pair of hiking boots and a warm jacket for evenings and early mornings is also needed. A lightweight rain jacket and hat is recommended. Short pants will also come in handy.
