Here is a hunt report posted on AH for RANCE SAFARIS

RANCE SAFARIS offers high quality hunting in big, wild terrain on our privately owned wildlife reserves covering 21,000 acres in the Great Kei and Fish River Valleys, in the eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

The reserves are managed sustainably with good ecological and wildlife management principals. Maintaining the quality of animals by protecting the prime trophy gene pool has resulted in RANCE SAFARIS being able to offer some of the finest trophies around, especially southern greater kudu, nyala and buffalo. Only older animals past breeding prime are harvested. This not only ensures the exceptional quality of species but also promises an incomparable hunting experience.

Whether you’re a new hunter, a family of hunters or a highly proficient hunter, RANCE SAFARIS ensures a unique and exciting experience for everyone. Levels of fitness, experience and species required are all considered when planning the "walk-and-stalk" hunt. RANCE SAFARIS’ expert professional guides understand, appreciate and love the excitement of guiding novice to expert hunters.

Hunting, including bow hunting, takes place throughout the year, with the best months being March to September when the weather is cooler. The Eastern Cape is a Malaria-Free area so no need to be concerned about taking anti-malaria drugs.

Choosing the correct outfitter can be very overwhelming. The following points are vital to take into consideration when booking your next safari, and we believe they give RANCE SAFARIS the competitive edge over other outfitters:
  • The lodge and entire hunting area will be exclusively yours, we do not mix or overlap different hunting groups.
  • There will be no driving from lodge to hunting area, all hunting takes place on the RANCE SAFARIS owned Game Reserves, you can literally walk out the lodge and start hunting.
  • Our stringent wildlife and habitat management policies ensure top quality trophies and hunting experience.
  • Game that is habituated to vehicles - this is because we never shoot from or with a vehicle in sight, the wildlife does not associate hunting with vehicles so game viewing and photographic opportunities are spectacular. We only conduct walk-and-stalk hunting.
  • We only host a handful of international trophy hunting clients per year ensuring a premium exclusive experience.
  • We can combine your hunting safari with Deep-sea fishing off the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape.

The Lodge
RANCE SAFARIS lodges are old Settler farm-houses which have been restored and modernized into hunting lodges. They are comfortable, fully serviced and unpretentious.

Food is South African and wholesome – full breakfasts with choices like eggs, bacon, cereals and dinners of roasted or barbecued meat, vegetables, salads. Fruit and snacks are always available. We believe in giving our clients a taste of the typical South African hunting culture, but if clients have special needs, these should be advised in advance and we will try to accommodate them.

A typical hunting day starts at daybreak, quickly taken coffee or tea, rusks or toast and heading out to the hunting area with snacks and cold-drinks. Breakfast/lunch (brunch we call it) is taken around 11:00 am to mid-day and if the day is hot, a short siesta thereafter. Hunting ends at sundown and drinks and supper are served around the open fireplace in the lapa or in the lodge, which is an experience in itself under the African sky with stars brighter and wilder than anyplace else on earth.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
