South Africa is the primary hunting destination on offer at Kudu Adventure Safaris

South Africa

We offer hunting safaris in four of South Africa's provinces namely Limpopo, Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as the Eastern Cape and Free State Provinces. These provinces differ greatly in terms of habitat, prevalent species as well as the general lie of the land.

Limpopo Province

Limpopo is South Africa’s most Northern Province, lying within the great curve of the Limpopo River. It is a region of contrast, ranging from bushveld (mixed grassland, dense Acacia Thorn bush) to mountainous areas (home to the Waterberg Mountains), primeval indigenous forests and unspoilt wilderness. The province borders the countries of Botswana to the west, Zimbabwe to the north and Mozambique to the east. In the eastern region lies the northern half of the magnificent Kruger National Park, a nature reserve teeming with African wildlife in a total area roughly the size of Israel.
