WHERE DO WE HUNT?
The Limpopo province in South Africa is known for breathtaking bushveld scenery, not to mention an abundance of wildlife. Species such as Nyala, Kudu, Roan, Sable, Buffalo and many others can easily be seen. Refer to our Trophy list to view the list of animals available for hunting. Our lodge is 3 hours from O.R Tambo International Airport (Johannesburg) and we will ensure that all your travel needs are taken care off.
The South African weather is just perfect for hunting safaris. We have warm, sunny days with chilly winter nights. Ideal for sitting around the campfire with your favorite beverage. Here you will have some interesting conversations and get to know amazing people.
OUR MISSION: From the day you purchase a hunting safari to South Africa to the day you depart back home, Idube Safaris will be there to assist you in every aspect. Our aim is to make this the ultimate hunting experience. We will assist with your permits and other administrative tasks. Just one of the many ways we ensure that you are able to sit around the campfire at our lodge and enjoy the African sunset without worry.
CONSERVING AFRICA THROUGH HUNTING
Conservation through hunting is our motto. Ultimately, by applying proper management to the environment, South Africa has one of the finest conservation models in the world. Through sustainable utilization, we can guarantee that our children will enjoy Africa for many years to come. Furthermore, all the meat that is harvested during your hunt is consumed by the locals (excl. predators and primates). Additionally we also offer culling hunts at cheaper rates. The meat from these hunting safaris are donated to welfare organisations in South Africa who are in dire need of resources. We firmly believe that the hunting industry should be utilized to empower fellow South Africans and therefore only do business with reputable, responsible companies.
RECOVERY OF SPECIES
When debating on hunting, a point often overlooked is that trophy hunting has also been credited with facilitating the recovery of species. The southern white rhinoceros grew from just 50 animals a century ago to over 11,000 wild individuals today. This is because hunts give game ranchers a financial incentive to reintroduce animals.
Similarly, trophy hunting has also driven the reintroduction of cape mountain zebra and black wildebeest. Trophy hunting typically take 2 to 5 percent of males annually from hunted animal populations. This has a negligible effect on the populations’ reproductive health.
People are often confused by the “benefit” of hunting, imagining it is about money going to local people. Surely this is important, particularly in remote communal areas with few other revenue options. But the most important benefit from an African conservation perspective is that trophy hunting maintains vast areas of land for wildlife. This is invaluable in an ever more human-dominated world.
With this in mind, you can form part of something great and contribute to a better tomorrow.
