Zander Osmers Safaris

A Big Five Safari still remains the ultimate safari for any hunter.

It is our highest priority at Zander Osmers Safari’s to provide a true African hunting experience that not only meets, but exceeds our valued guest’s expectations. Hunts are conducted under the strict and personal supervision of our experienced licensed professional hunters with a full entourage of skilled native trackers and hunting assistants on hand at all times. Additional transportation and full taxidermy services are available to complete the experience.

Hunting takes place all year round, but the optimal season is from March to the end of October. This time period lends itself to milder day temperatures and more active wildlife. Winter months are from April to September with cold mornings and evenings. Clients are advised to bring safari clothing, comfortable but rugged walking shoes, hats and sunglasses. A warm jacket is essential for late night bonfires and early morning breakfasts.

 

Recommended hunting rifles range from 308 to 458 for bush conditions, with 7mm rem-mag’s for the open plains. A variety of rifles and ammunition is available on site; however a detailed breakdown of the required equipment as well as an itinerary list will be communicated to guests by the supervising professional hunter prior to your visit.

The length of the safari is entirely dependent on the number and type of wildlife being hunted, although a general average of 8 days is required for a Big Five Hunt.

 

Please contact us if you need any references from the last season.

Concession

This Private Game Reserve is situated on 75 000 acres of pristine land just west of the Kruger National Park, between the towns of Gravelotte and Mica, north of Nelspruit. Proclaimed as a conservancy in 2003,this Game Reserve is a partnership between neighbouring families who have pooled former farm land together to preserve and sustain the biodiversity of the region in the heart of the bushveld; characterized by six different veld types and a rich variety of up to 34 animal species, including 4 of the Big Five. Zander Osmers Safari’s have to date, secured the exclusive hunting rights on this Game Reserve for the past 17 years.

The area within which the reserve is situated is perhaps best known for its indigenous Sable Antelope herds. It is close to the Murchison Range and the mineral ore deposits of Phalaborwa, which are amongst the largest in the world.

This gives rise to a unique topography with varied and interesting geological formations manifesting themselves throughout the area. The reserve is also home to the cycad, “Encephalartos Dyerianos,” which does not occur naturally anywhere else in the world.

Camps in the reserve remain unfenced, which can occasionally result in an unannounced encounter as animals wander through the camp sites, which only adds to excitement of the bush experience! Expect sightings of baboon, zebra, giraffe, caracal, bushbaby (if you enjoy a night drive), spring hare, jackal, honey badger, mongoose, hyrax, wildebeest and any number of antelope, to name but a few.

Plains game and other common game species in abundance on the Game Reserve include baboon, blue wildebeest, bushbuck, bushpig, civet, grey duiker, eland, elephant, genet, giraffe, grysbuck, hyena, impala, jackal, klipspringer, kudu, leopard, lion, caracal, nyala, ostrich, reedbuck, rhino, sable, steenbuck, warthog, waterbuck and zebra.
