Hunting for food has always been and continues to be an important aspect of life in rural African hunter-gatherer communities. Communal conservancies utilise wildlife sustainably, which includes the harvesting of meat through the sale of hunting safaris, which is intrinsically based upon researched quotas and regulation.
Wildlife populations have increased where the guiding principle is - if a resource has value, people will conserve it.
Fortunately, thanks to the many conservation benefits that stem from well-regulated management hunting, populations of most species of game in Africa are thriving.
Eastern to South-West Africa
Sybarite Sporting offers some excellent plains and bush game hunting opportunities in Namibia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, first and foremost, in areas where sustainably managed populations are ethically harvested, and in-turn we are able to tailor every plain game safari to the particular style and wishes of each of our guests.
From Tanzania in traditional East Africa to Namibia on the south-west coast of Africa, we have hunting concessions that cover many of the continent’s plains and bush game species such as: -
Blesbok, Bushbuck, Dik-Dik, Duiker, Eland, Gazelle, Gemsbok, Grysbok, Hartebeest, Impala, Klipspringer, Kob, Kudu, Nyala, Oribi, Oryx, Reedbuck, Roan & Sable Antelope, Sitatunga, Springbok, Steenbok, Suni, Tsessebe, Topi, Warthog, Waterbuck, Wildebeest, Zebra.
All African hunting safaris are conducted through operators we know personally that have become good friends over time. Hunting safaris can be organised as standalone trips or to include photographic and coastal itineraries.
Licence requirements: Sybarite Sporting will organise all of the necessary forms and permits, which you will need to complete in advance of travel. These will be issued prior to departure and will either be sent to you personally, and/or where appropriate, presented to you on arrival at your hunting destination.
Insurance requirements: We advise you to check with your insurance provider to ensure that you are covered for all the activities that you are likely to be taking part in - Sybarite Sporting can advise with the appropriate cover.
