Post edited on October 6, 2020: Due to the pandemic we now offer this hunt during the 2021 and 2022 hunting season.

In a continuous effort to provide, topmost hunting areas and trophy quality game to our hunters, Limpopo Big Game Safaris signed a 5-year hunting agreement in the Kalahari.

Limpopo Big Game Safaris now offers access to 75,000 acres of untouched beautiful landscape in the Kalahari, North West Province, South Africa. The Molopo Private Reserve is situated in one of the most isolated and remote locations of the country. The terrain offers our hunters an unforgettable, treasure-able hunting experience and an unspoiled Africa adventure. The Molopo river runs through the reserve and in it’s mid the river forms a significant piece of the border between Botswana and South Africa. This piece of paradise allows you to track and hunt, without the visibility of fences for days on end. The animals on quota for trophy hunting, cannot be describe other than overwhelming.

This is one of the very scarce, preserved areas in South Africa where hunters can pursue a natural wild managed Lion. 15 years ago, the owner introduced 15 adult Lions to the reserve. Today they have bred naturally, survived in a free-range, un-captive environment and thrived on their hunting grounds since 2005, and have been self-sustainable ever since.

Limpopo Big Game Safaris, with our proven track record of hunting and a solid believe that hunting is conservation, can now offer our hunters the opportunity to hunt a Wild Managed Lion on a strict quota base.

It is imperative for us to re-iterate, that the hunt, is NOT a Wild Lion Hunt, it is NOT a CBL or Put & Take Hunt, this hunt is for a Wild MANAGED Lion Hunt.

Re-emphasizing, that the hunt is managed, and that strict quotas apply, only adult males, no longer part of a pride will be hunted and a selected few Lionesses are also listed on limited quota.

Keeping within the ethical culture, conservation policies of this reserved piece of land, only a selective number of hunters, supportive of ethical hunting and the appreciation of nature’s wildlife, thriving on the adventure of a true fair chase hunt will be invited every year.

The usual Kalahari Plains Game is to be found in abundance on the reserve, whilst Buffalo, Rhino, Sable, Roan, Leopard, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, and smaller carnivores occur in healthy numbers. Whilst on Safari, you are privileged to add to your list additional trophies, whether it is Plains Game such as Sable, Roan, Kudu, Eland, Gemsbuck or Springbuck. Limpopo Big Game Safari will also compile additional packages should your preference be to exclusively hunt Buffalo or Plains Game as an example.

All trophy animals, including Lions are exportable, however, the following countries do not currently allow the importation of Lions.
Australia
France
USA and the Netherlands

TRAVELING

You will fly to Johannesburg OR Tambo International airport and overnight at the African Sky or Afton Safari Lodge.
The next morning you and your guide will travel to the reserve. The road is a comfortable 8 Hour drive, ALTHOUGH long, IT IS WELL WORTH THE TRAVEL.
A Charter plane can be arranged on request

Picture21.png


While on Safari you will be accommodated in the Molopo Private Reserve 4 Star lodge.
The Lodge can accommodate a total of 14 guests at max capacity.
Each room has it’s own private bathroom with running hot water.
All rooms are fitted with air conditioning and WiFi service is available throughout the lodge.
A qualified chef will prepare all meals and snacks that will be served in the dining room where you can sit, relax and enjoy the meals.
At the end of the day, you can spend time by the outdoor pool, or share the day's adventure around a star-lit camp fire while listening to the distant roar of a Lion
or the call of a Black Back Jackal.

So the price for a mature male is 12,850 euros plus 300 euros x 14? What does airport transfer from OR Tambo entail?

Can you check the calculation on the sable price between EUR and USD. One is not correct.
Looks like a very interesting hunt. Something to ponder over the cold winters here in Alaska.

The road transfer is, round trip from Johannesburg to the hunting area and back (1500km / 932miles)
Bare in mind that you PH has to do twice the driving to get to Johannesburg for meet and great as well as getting back to the reserve. It also involves a lunch along the road. I hope this is what you were wanting to know.

I have actually been thinking, this could be a great hunt for a double.

Thanks, I thought that's what you meant by the transfer but wanted to check.

So, what I come up with, if you just want to shoot a male lion and stay the minimum 14 days is $4900 day fees + $15,000 + $990 = $20,890.

That sounds good to me, although I haven't kept abreast of wild lion prices. It certainly sounds like something most people would prefer over a CBL.

Yes Sir, that is correct
14 Day Lion hunt only will cost you $20890.00 from pick-up to drop off.

Considering the fact that these are Wild Managed Lions and not CBL they are more expensive, yet far less than a wild Lion hunt. Lately I have seen wild Lion hunts sell for upwards of $45'000.00

I have been on two lion hunts with friends in this area.

Serapa, near Tosca in 2010, and Sans Souçi, near Mafikeng, which I believe are close to what Bossie offers.

The Kalahari is just stunning, something all hunters should experience, daily rates are just a bargain, and the price for what is really a wild lion is very reasonable.

Just for the record, I don´t even know Bossie and have no affiliation to his company :D Cheers:

@Nyati Thank you for you comment Sir.
So from Tosca you travel another 180km to the West, past Pomfret and Vorstershoop.
Vorstershoop is actually the last settlement with only a Police station, probably 5 houses and and ATM before you get to the Reserve.

I personally know several hunters that have hunted with Bossie. I was scheduled to hunt with him Sep 13 to Sep 24, But of course the virus stopped that hunt. I have not heard anything derogatory about him or his operation. Still have some money with him and will likely hunt with him in the future once the virus is gone.
