The Hunting

Tukutela Safaris employs professionals who believe in the old-fashioned way of hunting. No hunting out from vehicles. Big game is hunted on foot, by stalking. To approach dangerous game is an art and  situations during a hunt are subject to change without notice. All wild animals are dangerous when cornered. The goal is draw the client as close as is safe to the desired trophy. Tukutela Safaris offers the experience of hunting dangerous animals from close range. Since the optimum distance from any wild animal is below 60 yards, hunters are advised to make use of the shooting ranges to practice shooting off hand or from bipods. Hunters are invited to check the list of prescribed weapons applicable to the game being hunted.

The Conservation

The directors and staff of Tukutela Safaris are very active in nature conservation and view the concessions as environmentally sensitive areas. These areas are protected from invaders and poachers by an effective scout team. Their job is to patrol the hunting area and ensure the safety of wildlife and enviroment. Rampant poaching will destroy the area along with all operations that provide a living for the local people. Furthermore, if not protected, one cannot preserve the wildlife for future generations of hunters. Tukutela Safaris intends to preserve and invest in the future of Safari hunting.
