region of South Africa. The hunting partners, Jim and Neil, are both registered Professional Hunters with years of

Eastern Cape Hunters Safari Company is a reputable establishment and operates with
a high level of integrity and commitment, as defined in the values
-SAFETY: Any sport requires discipline to excel
in performance. This is also valid with hunting, with additional care due to the risks involved with firearms, wild animals and nature. It is therefore a prerequisite to any successful hunting experience that we do not compromise any safety standards.
-GUEST SATISFACTION: We recognize that it costs considerable time and money for foreign hunters to come to Africa and hunt. For most hunters, such a visit is a long
awaited dream come true. It is therefore our responsibility to utilize the time most effectively and pleasantly to ensure a memorable experience for the guest. We operate with this purpose in mind.
-ETHICAL HUNTING: Hunting is the
sport of kings and it is not about killing. It is the ultimate test of man against beast. The joy and excitement is in the chase.
We therefore passionately conduct the principals of ethical hunting, believe in fair game and take all the necessary precautions to avoid suffering of the game.
-NATURE CONSERVATION: We believe in the importance of ethical commercial hunting in creating an economical value for wildlife, and therefore preserving and improving
nature through conservation. We oppose any form of poaching,
illegal hunting, hunting during off-season in open grounds, usage of any illegal hunting methods and / or tools as well as causing any form of damage, destruction and pollution to nature.
-BUSINESS CONDUCT: We follow the code of “ walking the talk “ . We do not promise anything that we will
cannot deliver. This includes our facilities, service and our commitment to escorting
the client to find the best trophy. We believe that the devil is in the detail and commitment is about giving that extra inch.
