Zana Botes – How to choose the right hunting package for you
Updated: Jan 22
If you’re looking for ethical, affordable hunting packages, you’ve come to the right place. You may be an experienced hunter, or you may just be starting out. Some things to look out for when making your decision.
Make the right choice for you.
We believe that each hunt is personal and requires expert thought and design. Our experienced personal hunting guide will design your hunt so that you feel comfortable and have the best experience. Be clear about what you want to get from the hunt and what your boundaries are. But also be realistic – success rates do not depend on the guide alone, and there are many factors which could affect your hunt.
Choosing a guided hunting package.
Whether you’re new to hunting or a veteran, there are always benefits to having an experienced guide with you. Guides understand the terrain and the animals and will be able to spot any challenges quickly. They also take the pressure off you can simply enjoy the hunt! An experienced guide will tell you what to expect, what to watch out for, and be excellent company.
Check the reviews of any hunting safari outfitters or providers. The best way to get a sense of whether or not your money will be well-spent, is to see what other people just like you have to say about their experiences. You can check on Google or Facebook to get a good idea of the general consensus. Always asks for referrals. Remember, follow your gut – if something doesn’t feel right, rather look for a different outfitter.
Check their code of ethics.
We believe in hunting ethically and respectfully. Carefully look over the outfitter’s code of ethics to understand what you can expect from them during and after a hunt. If it is not available online, make sure you ask them for it in writing before you sign anything to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
Know exactly what you’re getting.
Make sure that your package is clearly outlined so that you know exactly what you’re getting for your money. Ask all your questions. Get information about the guide who will be leading you, weapon handling, ethics, trophies and of course, success rates. Any safari hunting package should offer you good value for money but beware of cheap knockoffs who come across as outrageously affordable but which have few user reviews; this could spell a scam or at the very least, a poor experience for you.
