Greater Kruger Park Elephant Hunting Area
– APNR SECTION 1:
Section 1 comprises of over 8.000 hectares of pristine big 5 territory that is open to and unfenced from the Greater Kruger National Park in the Limpopo portion of the National Park, the area is ideally situated on the elephants river where as the name suggests the elephants are plentiful as are all other big game species
including lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and antelope all in their natural environment. The terrain is typical African Lowveld bushveld that is made up of mostly Mopani veld and small undulating hills that flow downhill into thorn bush as you get nearer to the river.
It’s a prime area for elephant hunting in and amongst dense populations of elephants.
To hunt this Limpopo portion of the Greater Kruger National Park you should land at Hoedspruit Airport from there it’s a 30 minute drive to the lodge that is inside the hunting area. To land at Hoedspruit you should connect via OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.
– APNR SECTION 2:
This 10.000 hectare block has been recently proclaimed / newly opened (2019) up to the Greater Kruger National park also in the Limpopo Province portion of the Kruger National Park of South Africa. There are high populations of elephant and buffalo in this area, this fact was a big part of the reason that the decision was made to drop the fences and become part of the Greater Kruger National Park, in order to protect the habitat by spreading out the populations of big grazers by diluting them into the KNP population. This block / section 2 is also a big 5 area, hunters and non hunters will enjoy their time in these areas.
The bushveld consists of thorn bush and big trees such as Leadwood, Mopani, and Knob thorn. The area is mostly flat with the Molabetsi river running through it.
To hunt this Limpopo portion of the Greater Kruger National Park you should land at Hoedspruit airport from there it’s a 30 minute drive to the lodge that is inside the hunting area / inside the Greater Kruger National Park area.
