Sable are among the most beautiful and popular plains game species n all of Africa.
Usually a sable hunt is part of a plains game package, but often they are combined with or upgraded to a buffalo hunt. It makes sense to do it this way as your day fees are already taken care of. Hunt mature sable bulls measuring up to 45 inches on this concession in South Africa.
With 50 years combined experience, the hunt is conducted under strict and responsible rules, and we pride ourselves in our high standards and hunting ethics.”
Sable hunting is done by spot-and-stalk and tracking. You will often spot them from the safari vehicle, but hunting is not done from the vehicle. Expect to do some walking on your hunt. It is also possible for bowhunters to hunt them over water because they are daily drinkers.
Sable are wary, have good eyesight and sense of smell, and are remarkably tough and resilient. Good shot placement is required. Sable can also be very aggressive if they are wounded, and extreme caution should be used when you are approaching a downed animal.
Sable hunts are guided 1-on-1, plus trackers.
Sable are absolutely beautiful. On my first Safari here I saw a LOT of big bulls and they are high on my wishlist for my next hunt.” -Cory Glauner
One of the benefits of South Africa is that there is a 100% success rate on your safari. You will be hunting old mature sable bulls that will be a minimum of 38″. Bulls up to 45″ have been taken on our hunting concessions.
It is common to add other Plains game to your sable hunting safari, but you can also upgrade your safari and hunt lion, leopard, cape buffalo or elephant. If you upgrade your hunt, or want to combo your sable hunt with a dangerous game animal, it is advisable to hunt at least 10 days.

It has been a good start to our season. We just dropped off our first hunter, who was from Germany at the airport. He had a great Safari here in South Africa, taking a nice buffalo, sable, nyala, zebra and blesbuck.
