Driven Hunting

(guineaFOWL, Francolin)


 A typical day will commence with an early morning English breakfast after which we will depart for the day's shooting. Transportation to the shooting area will be by means of 4wd vehicles or minivans. Shooting commences on arrival in the field until noon. After 4 to 5 drives, light field lunch will be served and there will be enough time given to rest and have some fellowship.

Guns will resume the shoot after lunch to partake in another 2 to 3 drives during the afternoon. The day's shoot will be concluded with a photo session of the day's bag. A mouth-watering dinner will be served at night and the day's excitement will be relived around a boma fire until bedtime.





A typical Driven hunt takes place over 3 to 4 days. International sportsmen and women can combine a Driven shoot with some of our other shooting and touristic options.



The driven hunting season is from late May until the 30th September.


This hunt happens in the Southern hemisphere’s winter and spring time! Comfortable, non-insulated ankle boots are recommended. The winter mornings and late afternoons will be cold. Spring mornings and evenings can be chilly, but the days can be warm. Dressing in layers are advisable.

A warm jacket, jersey, beanie, scarf and gloves are recommended. Sunblock, a shooting cap, eye and ear protection as well as a shooting vest is recommended for an enjoyable shoot.

Guns and Ammo

12 or 20 gauge over/under or side-by-side shotguns are recommended.

No Semi-automatic guns will be allowed on Driven hunts.

Shot in size No.5 will be supplied to visiting sportsmen.

This combination has found to be ideal for driven hunts in our areas.



As these are totally wild populations of Guineafowl and Francolin, no more than 30% of a population is harvested per annum. Guns can expect to see between 1000 and 1800 birds being driven per day and a bag of between 140 and 180 birds, depending on the number of guns and level of shooting.

Groups of between 6 and 8 guns are preferred. Birds are utilised by clients while on safari, while the excess are consumption by ourselves as well as the numerous beaters and their extended families.


Lodging is a comfortable safari style lodge set in typical Molopo savannah. All rooms have en-suit facilities and very comfortable beds. Rooms are serviced daily. Delectable cuisine and great Molopo hospitality can be expected. A well-stocked bar will be at your disposal.
