    Howdy sir!

    The answer is yes.... not all in one place. You will move around a bit. Start in Drakensburg area the move to midlands to umkomas & so on. Absolutely Gorgeous area. I’d go back & hunt there again. Great areas for bushbuck, Bush pigs as well. Monster Eland in the mountains

    I agree with @BWH it won’t happen in one place. Anything is doable in South Africa.

    Between the Umkumaas valley and foothills of Nottingham Road, Lotheni, and then further to Colenso, and Ladysmith you will find all except Barbery Sheep. I have personally hunted Rowland Ward specimens of all your mentioned animals, or know friends that have in this area. Mostly free range, so try forget about the tape measure.

    Adrian Salter from Adroda Safaris is the man to speak to.

    Closest for Barbary sherp will be some propies in the Free State.

    Hello Ali,

    Hope all is well with you. I have several areas we can hunt and Phil and BWH has hunted Natal with me.

    I will mail you some options.

    All my best,

    Jacques

    KwaZulu-Natal, beautiful province.

    Hunted there twice, you´ll find great animals, not sure about the Barbary Sheep.

    You might give Aloe Africa Safaris a look. On my radar as an alternative to layover/plane change in Joburg being able to fly with Emirates directly into Durban.

    Ive hunted africa 4 times and taken 50 plus trophies. Other than vaal rhebok have taken all the species mentioned above multiple times. I have never bothered with inches before and have been happy to take any mature animal.
    There are certain species i simply enjoy hunting ie kudu, bushbuck etc but having shot a number of them now i am specifically interested in certain sized trophies and the challenge that goes along with hunting them. So i suppose i am looking for an outfitter who understands what im after given my previous experience.
    So yes, this hunt is about finding certain sized trophies specifically.
