Limpopo – Base Camp
Our comfortable and spacious main camp is situated 3 ½ hours drive from Johannesburg International airport in the Limpopo Province near Lephalale or formally Ellisras. The camp is in a malaria free area and within comfortable reach of all our surrounding hunting and photographic areas. After a long and sometimes hard day out in the bush you can enjoy the welcome of an African fire, the clean swimming pool or if it’s too cold enjoy our air-conditioned lounge with our open and well stocked bar facility and be pampered by our staff. This is where you can exchange the day’s events with your friends and fellow travelers. You might also feel like sitting in a stand close to camp and watch the animals come to drink at a waterhole nearby. Bring your camera along…you might see Giraffe, Zebra or a warthog enjoying a mud bath.

SOUTH AFRICA IS WELL KNOWN AS A PRIME HUNTING DESTINATION ALL OVER THE WORLD.
It is a fact that no other country can compete with or offer the abundance of wild game together with the number of different hunt-able species that can be found in South Africa.
This makes South Africa unique in its own way and in a class of its own. South Africa is rated as the prime area for experienced or novice hunters. A Great place to go and to experience with your wife, friend or family weather on a hunting or photographic safari.
When travelling South Africa, you will find from wide open areas to prime lush bushveld as hunting areas. Each area with a beauty and challenge of its own. Bushveld makes for a more challenging personal hunt with shots around 100 to 200 yards, while longer shots can be taken in open savannah areas.
Kuche Safaris was just awarded contract to hunt from 2019 onwards on one of the most desired and prime hunting areas known in the Limpopo province of South Africa.
The Limpopo province is also known for quality game and bigger trophies in South Africa. That is why experienced hunters refer to it as the hunting capitol of South Africa.

This will be a light barbeque with sandwiches and snacks. A three course meal is served after the day’s hunt. During the day coolers are provided with light snacks, water, soda and fruits.

Ellisras/Lephalale is situated about 2760 foot above sea level. South Africa’s seasons are just the opposite of the USA. Our hunting areas are mostly in our summer rainfall areas which from November to March. Below is a rough guide of our temperatures:
Months: March – April, Limpopo: 60 – 90, Northern Cape: 50 – 80
Months: May – June, Limpopo: 50 – 80, Northern Cape: 40 – 70
July is the coldest 40 – 70 and then it warms up from mid August onwards.
Winter starts at the end of April with an average day temperature of about 70 degrees and night temperatures 60 degrees. We are in a summer rainfall area with normal rainfalls from Mid November to March the following year. Wintertime (June to mid August) hunting is done in lovely days and chilly nights. SPF 30 sunscreen or higher can be used in daytime hunting even during our wintertime.
Our suggestions to the client is to wear dark Khaki brown or green coloured clothing during the hunt. Long sleeved trousers and shirts are recommended for daytime hunting although some hunters prefer to wear short sleeved clothing. Cameo clothing is not needed but on bow hunts as dark as possible would help. Sometimes a hunt can turn out in a long walk and so we would suggest using light weight clothing. A light jacket is advisable for early in the morning and late afternoons.
We suggest that you bring light weight hiking boots with soft soles as well as two pairs of boots around ankle height. Please don’t bring new boots as this can ruin your hunt. You can pack light as a daily laundry service is provided.
Kuche Safaris operates out of Malaria free areas and you will be notified if it’s needed otherwise. No shots are needed for most of our hunting areas in South Africa.
