Crusader Safaris hunts only large free range conservancies. Animals are all indigenous to these areas and have always been there, offering an authentic hunting experience for superior trophy quality.
Crusader Safaris has over the last 15 years been built a reputation for free range unfenced plains game hunting in South Africa. As a plains game hunting destination, South Africa has something to offer hunters from all over the world and hunters with all levels of hunting and African hunting experience.
All animals are hunted in the Baviaansriver conservancy, Umkomaas Valley and Stormberg mountains. These animals are all free range and are indigenous to these areas and this habitat. It is very unique to be able to hunt all these species and the quality of the animals out of our three camps.
For the first time hunter in Africa, a free range plains game hunt is a great way to see the country and experience many hunting opportunities and challenges. Usually, 8 to 10 days with a few priority species and an opportunistic mindset is the best way to approach the first hunt. Packages are available for those who would prefer this. Priority species are always free range Kudu, free range Bushbuck, Gemsbuck, Warthog and usually a few other species. Most of our first-time hunters will hunt the Baviaansriver conservancy. This 400 000 acre free range area with no high fences has great trophy quality and variety.
Africa has a way of drawing you back and the Umkomaas Valley is a perfect destination for the returning hunter. Focusing on huge free range Nyala, Southern Greater Kudu, Bushbuck and many others in this 100 000 acre area. This unique area has a truly wild authentic feel and unbelievable trophy quality.
The Umkomaas Valley, Baviaansriver and Stormberg mountains offer very different hunting challenges, scenery, camps and animals.
South Africa is a great plains game destination and with Crusader Safaris the unique aspect is that all our areas and hunting are free range. Trophy quality is the focus and with the areas being well managed the game is plentiful. Being a family-friendly hunt and destination a few days spent enjoying the sightseeing opportunities before or after the hunt are a great idea. The Indian Ocean on the east coast, Cape Town in the south to Durban in the north or some of our huge game reserves. Kruger National Park, Addo National Park and a number of others, the sightseeing options are well worth a look at.
