We are professionals and we like hunting the classic way. Big game hunting is done mainly on foot, by stalking. To approach dangerous game is an art and situations during a hunt can change any second. To get our clients as close as possible to their prefered game is our goal. If you want to experience hunting free ranging dangerous game, that way we appriciate it. We strictly do not hunt from cars. As most shots on dangerous game are fairly below 70 yards, we advise you to practice off hand shooting or from bipods, the so called shooting sticks... and use enough gun.
We look at our concession as an environmentally sensitive area. Our aim is to protect this area from invaders and poachers. In our understanding we can only utilize what we are protecting before. Not only that the directors of Tukutela Safaris are very active in nature conservation, but we are also having our own effective scout team to survey the hunting area. To protect means also to preserve wildlife for future generations of hunters. To preserve means also to invest in a future of Safari hunting.
