We specialize in big game or dangerous game hunts. Hunting dangerous game in Africa safaris are for hunters who have hunted plains game and are pursuing something extra. The thrill of the hunt is what makes hunters go back to basics when trying to outwit game animals in their natural environment. Dangerous game hunting increases the thrill of the hunt to a whole new level – the hunter can easily become the hunted. There is a distinct reason why dangerous game are known as dangerous game, and the reason is simply because elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, Cape buffalo and hippos are dangerous. All six of the aforementioned animals have killed humans since the start of time and will continue to do so until the end of time. This is why Professional Hunters in Africa must have sufficient dangerous game hunting in Africa experience before being allowed to guide hunters on such hunts. Most dangerous game hunts end well for the hunters, but it is on the odd occasion when dangerous animals charge hunters when a cool head and enough gun along with experience is handy to have.
