Hunting with Comre Safaris

2019 Hunting Packages 2019 Animal Prices

Every Safari is Unique

Comre Safaris offers a number of packages, which often suit the first-time hunter.  But every package can be tailored for your specific requirements.  We will also create a unique package for you.  Hunting can include rifle or bow hunting.  Every hunt is guided by Richard Bridger or by a PH (professional hunter) and a team of trackers.

Hunting Areas

Hunting can be at Comre, where there are 22 000 acres of diverse terrain, from savannah, through riverine bush to mountain.  Hunting at Comre is challenging and every day is different.  The expertise of the PH and trackers ensure that you will have an excellent hunt.

We hunt nearby game ranches as well, including Huntershill and Rocklands, also owned by Greg Harvey, where different hunting conditions and available game provide a rich variety for your safari.  We also hunt in other areas of the country and at concessions in Namibia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

Hunting can be done at any time of the year, but winter is most popular.

Rifle Hunting

Comre Safaris offers clients a variety of hunting styles, such as ‘spot and stalk’ in the Comre Mountains and Zululand bush, where shots could be as close as 10 yards, or as far as 300 yards.  Alternatively, clients can opt for tracking lion in the Kalahari or for buffalo and elephant in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.  Another exhilarating Hunting method is a leopard hunt accompanied by our resident hound pack.

We also offer excellent bird hunting.

Bow Hunting

Our bow hunting concessions include over 25 hides to choose from for hunting plains game. Birds blend perfectly into the surrounding areas and multiple game species can be observed at the same time, as they make their way past. There is never a dull moment. For the more experienced or adventurous Bow hunter, we hunt all our big game on foot, tracking them down and approaching to within 10-20 yards for a good shot opportunity. Nothing comes close to the mixture of adrenalin, fear and pure exhaustion experienced when 10 yards from a growling lion with only a bow in hand... and the same goes for buffalo or bow hunting a leopard with our well trained dogs.
