In South Africa, our seasons are reversed from those of you who will be traveling from north of the Equator. This means that our spring to summer months fall between September to April, while our winter months are during May to August. Our winters can get quite chilly – most of the time, our early mornings will be around 30-40 (°F), and by mid afternoon, the temperature can sometimes reach into the low 70’s (°F).  At the Shikwaru hunting outfit we are able to hunt year-round, however, we would recommend hunting from February till October – as these are the most mild weather months of the year.


At Shikwaru, we love our animals! Come and enjoy a well-oiled breeding operation, enabling us to repopulate several scarcer species of antelope.  Come and enjoy years of experience and quality trophies as a result of the breeding efforts at Shikwaru.

The breeding of scarcer animals has and continues to help us invest in the lives of many children in Africa through the mission of Reaching a Generation.
