In a continuous effort to provide, topmost hunting areas and trophy quality game to our hunters, Limpopo Big Game Safaris signed a 5-year hunting agreement in the Kalahari.

Limpopo Big Game Safaris now offers access to 75,000 acres of untouched beautiful landscape in the Kalahari, North West Province, South Africa. The Molopo Private Reserve is situated in one of the most isolated and remote locations of the country. The terrain offers our hunters an unforgettable, treasure-able hunting experience and an unspoiled Africa adventure. The Molopo river runs through the reserve and in it’s mid the river forms a significant piece of the border between Botswana and South Africa. This piece of paradise allows you to track and hunt, without the visibility of fences for days on end. The animals on quota for trophy hunting, cannot be describe other than overwhelming.

This is one of the very scarce, preserved areas in South Africa where hunters can pursue a natural wild managed Lion. 15 years ago, the owner introduced 15 adult Lions to the reserve. Today they have bred naturally, survived in a free-range, un-captive environment and thrived on their hunting grounds since 2005, and have been self-sustainable ever since. Limpopo Big Game Safaris, with our proven track record of hunting and a solid believe that hunting is conservation, can now offer our hunters the opportunity to hunt a Wild Managed Lion on a strict quota base.

It is imperative for us to re-iterate, that the hunt, is NOT a Wild Lion Hunt, it is NOT a CBL or Put & Take Hunt, this hunt is for a Wild MANAGED Lion Hunt. Re-emphasizing, that the hunt is managed, and that strict quotas apply, only adult males, no longer part of a pride will be hunted and a selected few Lionesses are also listed on limited quota.

Keeping within the ethical culture, conservation policies of this reserved piece of land, only a selective number of hunters, supportive of ethical hunting and the appreciation of nature’s wildlife, thriving on the adventure of a true fair chase hunt will be invited every year. The usual Kalahari Plains Game is to be found in abundance on the reserve, whilst Buffalo, Rhino, Sable, Roan, Leopard, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, and smaller carnivores occur in healthy numbers. Whilst on Safari, you are privileged to add to your list additional trophies, whether it is Plains Game such as Sable, Roan, Kudu, Eland, Gemsbuck or Springbuck. Limpopo Big Game Safari will also compile additional packages should your preference be to exclusively hunt Buffalo or Plains Game as an example.

All trophy animals, including Lions are exportable, however, the following countries do not currently allow the importation of Lions. Australia France USA and the Netherlands TRAVELING You will fly to Johannesburg OR Tambo International airport and overnight at the African Sky or Afton Safari Lodge. The next morning you and your guide will travel to the reserve. The road is a comfortable 8 Hour drive, ALTHOUGH long, IT IS WELL WORTH THE TRAVEL. A Charter plane can be arranged on request
