Big 5 Safaris

Big 5 Safaris

All HuntBig5’s Professional Hunters are highly qualified and formally trained. They have an intimate knowledge of the African bush and wildlife and are unquestionably passionate about their roles. They have Big 5 and Plains Game experience, are extremely enthusiastic and great fun to be with. Not only do they serve as guides in the field, they are also your personal hosts for the duration of your Africa hunting safari. HuntBig5’s Professional Hunters are full professional members of PHASA (The Professional Hunters Association of South Africa), which is the governing body and official mouthpiece of the industry that ensures that the laws of the land are upheld and that all members conduct themselves in a manner which reflects honesty, integrity and morality. The relationship between a professional hunter and his tracker is almost a brotherhood. Many of our trackers are 2nd and 3rd generation members of the HuntBig5 safari family.
