    Hi Everyone ,

    I have only a few of these exciting hunts left for 2014.

    Rifle or black powder .


    Included in this 7 day ( 8 night ) package :

    Full day fees for one hunter and one observer
    Accomodation , all meals and drinks
    daily laundry service
    services of skinners , tracker , vehicles and PH.
    All hunting permits
    Trophy fee for one Cape Buffalo
    Field preparation of trophies.
    Transport from and to Eastgate airport in Hoedspruit
    Transport of Trophies after the hunt to life form taxidermy for export


    Excluded in the package ;

    All airfares
    Dipping , preparation, packing and export of trophies
    Tips and gratuities

    Gentlemen , while booking two of these Buffalo hunts yesterday , mailing info back and forth , and answering numerous questions , I realised that I might have created the wrong impression of the hunting area when mentioning a fence. I also realised that there is confusion over the whole Greater Kruger hunting concept.

    Allow me to clarify this.

    Most hunting areas in South Africa are high fenced , even the ones in the greater Kruger general region. Essentially these are game ranches , large or small , bordering on or close to Greater Kruger.

    However , the reserve that these Buffalo are hunted on is a true free range area inside Greater Kruger. The reserve is called the Balule game reserve and , together with Klaserie game reserve , Timbavati game reserve and Umbabat game reserve , they form the APNR ( Associated Private Game Reserves ). These reserves have no internal fences with each other and are also an open , unfenced system with Kruger Park on Kruger's Western boundary ,which is beneficial to all of them.

    Kruger is open on its 100 mile North Eastern boundary with Mozambique creating a cross frontier park. This complete system is in excess of 6 000 000 acres in size.

    The APNR does have a fence on its Western boundary which is also the western boundary of this complete reserve system.

    There are mostly high fenced game ranches that border onto this western fence , hence calling themselves Greater Kruger region hunting areas ( although high fence enclosed and not inside Greater Kruger open reserve system )

    I hope this clarifies things. Any more questions are welcome by e mail or on the forum.

    I have only 2 of these free roam Buffalo hunts left .


    Happy hunting

    Thank you. This gives a good visual. I guess I should learn how to post pictures...

    Please note the following: Balule is actually the reserve bordering on the north west of Ti (Timbavati and Klaserie reserves )
    Thorny bush and Kapama are not part of this open system and are fenced off.
    The 2 blocks on the north west are not included in the open system and fenced off.

    Happy hunting

    To correct the map (Shocking that a booking website would have the original map wrong)

    So, Balule is now in a RED block.?
