Ethical Hunting

Conservation with class & hunting with thought.

Buffalo Kloof with its vast and diverse landscape is home to over 400 buffalo, black and white rhino, elephant, cheetah, leopard, hippo and over 35 different plains game species. We pride ourselves in offering a truly unforgettable and unique African hunting experience. At Buffalo Kloof we welcome hunters of all experience levels. Whether you are an avid hunter or a novice in the field, our team will ensure your hunting experience is a memorable one.

A hunting safari at Buffalo Kloof is an adventure of a lifetime. It is as much about the journey of the hunt as it is the final harvest. All our hunting is done by the method of ‘walk and stalk’ to experience the unique Eastern Cape Thicket, smell the fresh air and feel the African sun against your cheek. This fashion of taking on the elements and experiencing wildlife in its purest form ensures that the magnificent African animals get the respect and admiration they deserve.

Buffalo Kloof strives for nothing less than the ultimate safari experience. All hunting on the reserve is done according to the ethical, fair chase principles of our hunting heritage, which indeed preserve the integrity of the animal and the adventure of the hunt. Canned hunting, shooting from vehicles, or other practices contrary to fair chase are strictly prohibited. Buffalo Kloof is dedicated to the traditions that make African hunting the adventure of a lifetime. We are driven to keep those principles and practices alive.

Fair Chase

As a Rowland Ward ‘fair chase’ outfitter in South Africa, we operate with absolute integrity, according to the highest standards of international free roam and fair chase best practices and ethics.

As part of our ecological management and sustainability model at Buffalo Kloof, we selectively harvest a set quota of animals every year. This is based on scientific observations considering, among others, carrying capacity, stocking densities, predator to prey ratios, and rainfall patterns. It is necessary to remember the importance of what hunters do for the conservation of wildlife. By visiting Buffalo Kloof you are choosing to support an effort to expand wilderness areas, allowing for bigger and safer spaces for wildlife to roam in their most natural form.
