Hunting

On the Boscia Hunting and Guestfarm you can hunt various free roaming plains game on a total area of approximately 12,000 ha. At Boscia we hunt in accordance with the principles of responsible and ethical hunting. Looking after the game and protecting the species is a top priority for us. High quality and individuality when it comes to hunting is particularly important to us. We want to preserve the magnificent environment for the future through selective game management. We therefore closely collaborate with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. These efforts are reflected in the extraordinary and beautiful trophy hunting experiences.

Stalking is the most common form of hunting at Boscia. Our many hides also allow for hunting from. The hunting season is open from 1st February till 30th November. As a rule, the shooting distance in the open savannah is between 100 – 220 m. The hunt able game at Boscia includes Springbuck, Blesbuck, Waterbuck, Oryx, Hartebeest, Greater Kudu, Plains and Mountain Zebra, Blue Wildebeest and Black Wildebeest, Eland, Warthog, Impala and Jackal. We offer classic trophy hunting – depending on the farm population – as well as management hunts.

Ethical hunting at Boscia means, for example, that we walk and stalk for the hunting of all our game and make strict selections, all depending on the type of hunt. All hunters need to practice shooting on our range before being permitted to hunt game. It is advised the all hunters do some practice before coming out to Boscia off shooting sticks.
We offer a one on one (One hunter with one PH) OR a two on one (Two hunters with one PH)
The professional hunters were carefully selected and they represent our ethical hunting values. We hunt with our core team PH Martin Britz, PH Tinus Hansen and Master Hunter Dirk van Zyl.
