DESTINATION OVERVIEW:

Africa  needs no introduction when it comes to dangerous game and plains game  hunting safaris. The Big Five and the numerous plains game species are definitely the main reason hunters flock to Africa.  Much less discussed is the amazing wing-shooting opportunities the Dark Continent offers! There are fifteen species of ducks and geese that can be hunted in South Africa.  When combined with upland game birds there are over thirty species to hunt! Maybe not the volume of Argentina, but South Africa reigns King when it comes to variety.

The Riley’s Outdoor Consulting outfitting team in South Africa specializes in World-Class Wingshooting Safaris  Our Professional Hunters understand that scouting is the key to successful hunts. With that in mind they have access to many of the most productive marshes and fields available in the regions waterfowl congregate.  We will only hunt the most productive areas. 

Our team also understands you have traveled a long way to hunt Africa.  We can assist you with pursuing dangerous game or plains game hunts after your wingshooting safari.

THE HUNT:

The ducks and geese of South Africa are similar to those around the world and tend to concentrate in areas that have the most rainfall and also where the grain harvest is in full swing. Our ROC hunters will be located in the most productive fields, ponds, and marshes. Well concealed blinds and strategically placed decoys are used on each hunt.

We will hunt waterfowl in the morning and in the afternoon.  Additionally, we will be hunting upland game such as francolin, grouse, doves, and pigeons.  For the upland game we utilize trainers pointing dogs or beaters who will drive the birds from cover providing exciting overhead shooting.

ACCOMMODATIONS & CUISINE:

At camp you will be catered to by a very attentive staff.  We will be staying in typical safari style camps or in some cases quaint Country Inns.  Our hunters will dine on excellent meals as the culinary team takes great pride in guest satisfaction.  You can be sure part of the menu will include some of Africa’s finest wild game!

 ADDITIONAL SPECIES TO HUNT

Not only will you hunt a plethora of ducks and geese on this Safari you will pursue several species of francolin, quail, sandgrouse, dove, rock pigeon, and guinea fowl.
