2020 has been a tough year, a global pandemic, elections, projections and discussions on all aspects of life from risks to perceived risks and everything in between. As the dust settles on the year and the facts become a little clearer, there is only one positive move to make and that is to look forward to 2021.
The opening on South Africa’s borders is imminent and international travel is about to resume. No one knows how this will look and work going forward but what I do know is that after a year of no hunting, the hunting in the Umko in 2021 will be really good. 120 000 acres of free range hunting, all animals indigenous to these areas and the great trophy quality will only be better come 2021.
The Umkomaas conservancy is made up of a number of privately owned properties to form one huge contiguous conservancy. Crusader Safaris owns a large portion of this land, leases some of it and has the exclusive hunting rights on the full 120 000 acres of true wild free range hunting land. It has taken many years to set this up, a true conservation success story. In the last 10 years, the indigenous game numbers have grown exponentially, the trophy quality is unprecedented, Crusader Safaris is fortunate to be the only outfit offering free range hunting in South Africa. The Umkomaas conservancy is an area we are really proud of.
Crusader Safaris has over the years become known for free range hunting, trophy quality and a real safari experience. The Umkomaas conservancy is what sets us apart from the other outfitters that fence their properties with a high fence and because there are no internal fences think they can sell a fake free range hunt. The Umkomaas is wild, free range country, no high fences, indigenous animals and the best trophy quality in South Africa. World record Southern Greater Kudu, Nyala, Cape Bushbuck, Common Reedbuck, Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Eland, Bushpig and many more are all great options when hunting out of our luxury tented camp on the banks of the Umkomaas River.
As the only outfit offering real free range hunting in South Africa, it will be unbelievably exciting to see what has moved into our areas over the last year. A huge part of hunting is uncertainty and to be able to go out every morning not knowing what to expect, but with high expectations based on past hunting is the essence of an African safari. I can’t help but be very excited about what is to come. 2021 is going to be a great year and the free range hunting with Crusader Safaris in out huge conservancies will be better than ever.
