Hunting Informatiom



A Big Five Safari still remains the ultimate safari for any hunter.

It is our highest priority at Zander Osmers Safari’s to provide a true African hunting experience that not only meets, but exceeds our valued guest’s expectations. Hunts are conducted under the strict and personal supervision of our experienced licensed professional hunters with a full entourage of skilled native trackers and hunting assistants on hand at all times. Additional transportation and full taxidermy services are available to complete the experience.

Hunting takes place all year round, but the optimal season is from March to the end of October. This time period lends itself to milder day temperatures and more active wildlife. Winter months are from April to September with cold mornings and evenings. Clients are advised to bring safari clothing, comfortable but rugged walking shoes, hats and sunglasses. A warm jacket is essential for late night bonfires and early morning breakfasts.

Zander Osmers Safaris caters for non-hunters too that would like to do site seeing and tourism while the rest of the group might be hunting please visit our tourism page for more information.


Recommended hunting rifles range from 270 to 470 NE for bush conditions. A variety of rifles and ammunition is available on site; however a detailed breakdown of the required equipment as well as an itinerary list will be communicated to guests by the supervising professional hunter prior to your visit.

The length of the safari is entirely dependent on the number and type of wildlife being hunted, although a general average of 8 days is required for a Big Five Hunt.


Bow hunting are mostly conducted in pit blinds over water holes and also pop-up blinds over natural waters. minimum poundage required are 45LBS for plains game and 70 on Buffalo. Please make sure you go check out our pit blinds gallery on the site.
