Contrary to the opinion of some, the elephant is not endangered and in fact several countries of Southern Africa have been forced to institute culling operations to keep their numbers in balance. South Africa elephant hunting is strictly managed and based on availability. Elephant tags in are strictly controlled by CITES. You’ll be hunting on the private ground surrounding the park, but they are the same free ranging elephants that reside within the park. These hunts are often management hunts, but occasionally there are trophy bulls available with limits on the weight of the tusks.

You’ll be hunting KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga or the Limpopo Province based on availability.
