From Port Elizabeth we will transfer by road for 3 1/2 hours North to our first destination high-up in the Sneeuberg Mountains. Here we will pursue the ultimate upland game bird, the Greywing Partridge (Scleroptila africana), above 5500 feet for the next three days. This classic hunt is done over schooled English Pointers in breathtaking landscapes. Greywing partridge are classified as one of the most sporting game birds in the world and will test a seasoned upland hunter to its fullest.
On the fifth day, after breakfast, we will depart for our next destination in the Karoo Midlands, 3 hours North-East by road, pursuing Egyptian and Spurwing geese, Yellow Bill duck and Red Bill teal. Shooting will commence after lunch and some free time with a late afternoon waterfowl shoot. The next day hosts a morning and afternoon session, and we finally complete the official waterfowl part of the safari with a morning goose shoot on day seven.
After an early morning shoot and a scrumptious brunch the guns depart for Bloemfontein, the "pigeon capital" of South Africa. This is a 3 1/2 hour trek North to our final destination to complete the Ultimate Wingshooting Safari. For the next three days we will be entertained with volume pigeon and dove shooting, testing the abilities of most respected guns. Millions of pigeons and doves commute, twice daily, between the city to the ripening sunflower fields of the surrounding farms. It is here where guns ambush these humbling game birds on their flight paths. Pigeon shooting is often hot barrel action, and guns can fire in excess of a thousand rounds of ammo in a day! Days can be spiced up with some opportunistic pursuing of Guineafowl, Francolin and Partridge.
Some of the opportunistic species encountered on the Ultimate Wingshooting Safari: The safari ends after a hearty breakfast on the eleventh day. Clients will be transferred to the Bram Fisher Airport (BFN) in Bloemfontein, a 30 minute drive from our lodgings, during the course of the morning to catch your connecting flight to Johannesburg or Cape Town.
