    HI Guys,

    I apologize if I had missed it, but I did try searching...but am possibly a little ignorant to which terms to use to narrow it down. I'm interested in finding outfitters in South Africa that have access to free range hunting concessions that also have the ability to do a night or two in a "rustic" style tented safari. I'm going after that traditional allure and wondering what options are there. Ideally want to limit it to South Africa, but will gladly love to hear surrounding options as well.

    I appreciate any and all input!

    I should clarify, what I mean as "free range" is subjective. Personally, anything over 8000-10,000 acres is perfectly fair chase "free range" for me. Main focus is the ability to add a night or two in an old world rustic style.

    There are a few hunt reports where hunters have hunted from rustic camp settings in RSA.

    One was just posted today that noted a tented camp being used. Just start looking and you will find them.

    Good luck.

    There is nothing like a tent camp on safari, nothing. Worth looking for. Still common in some countries, maybe not RSA though.

    Good day @TTundra
    We offer free range hunting on low fenced ranches and have access to private game reserves up to 65 square miles in size with free roaming buffalo, sable,Rhino and elephant on.

    The lodges are old ranch houses built in the turn of the century from rock and mud. Now plastered over and painted but the floors ceilings and doors are still from a bygone era.

    PM me if you would like some more info.
    In good huntng
    Dave

    Sir, What animals are you interested in hunting?We have a Ruff-It camp, but to try and keep the travelling to a minimum, I would need to have an idea of target species. Just want to see if your target animals are in the vicinity of pur Ruff It camp.

    Take Care,
    Marius Goosen

    Thanks Dave, I'll give your site a go thru today.

    Hi Marius,

    Looking to hunt Gemsbok, Waterbuck, and Blue wildbeest. The Tented portion need only be a night or two as well. Doesn't need to be the whole trip. Thanks!

    If you are looking for a truly old-school tented camp for plains game then I'd look at one of the concession hunts in Namibia. They are 100% free range and we even did one where we moved camp every day and slept in pup tents. It was a pretty cool experience. Give L'wyk a call at @Leopard Legend Hunting Safaris.
