Hunting Season In South Africa

Hunting season in South Africa on public land is dependant on local/provincial laws. Trophy hunting in South Africa is carried out throughout the year on private or private game reserve land. However the summer heat and rains are unpleasant for the hunter, and the trophies may sustain hair slip from heat damage, or be damaged by too much moisture. The summer rain also stimulates grass growth, which hampers visibility – thick undergrowth.  

Most Popular Months

For these reasons, hunting is generally conducted between March and October, with the winter months of June, July and August, being the most popular time to hunt.
