SOUTH AFRICA Owner: K&K Premium Fort Governor´s Estate - The thrill of the chase in the spirit of the colonial safari Hunting as it was in colonial times is the experience that awaits you at Fort Governors Estate. The Estate and the surrounding area boasts a rich hunting history that stretches back into ancient times. The San people traversed this magnificent landscape, harvesting the plentiful game species that are endemic to the area. Their beautiful cave paintings still exist here as an ode to their way of life, living in harmony with nature. Today, this vast 6,700-hectare wild game reserve is an amalgamation of four former estates. In recent years, this well established reserve has been returned to its former glory to create a perfect natural wilderness supporting an outstanding population of healthy game. An incredible twenty-seven different game species can be hunted on Fort Governors Estate - which is also highly regarded internationally for its extraordinary population of the iconic Kudu. Four diverse ecosystems and an exceptional variety of plants and trees make up this abundantly nourishing environment – a key contributor to the magnificent game population found on the estate. The spectacular valleys are home to pristine Fish River Valley Bushveld, the rolling hills flowing out onto lush grassland plains and the dramatic plunging cliff faces provide the ideal habitat for many species. Careful management of the four distinct habitats and the animals within them, ensures that the estate remains ecologically balanced. Sustainability is the key Hunting at Fort Governors Estate incorporates sustainable game management and fair chase hunting. You will hunt only for mature old trophies in the traditional way – walking and stalking. You won’t find any hunters shooting from a truck or simply waiting for game at waterholes. Stalking for the wiliest of old trophy animals in this magnificent landscape is certainly challenging, but you will be rewarded with an extraordinary hunting experience in the traditional African way, and you will be afforded an unforgettable impression of this spectacular landscape and diversity of game. The most intense challenge is the buffalo hunt in the bushveld. Stalking through valley thickets in dense bush until you encounter a buffalo face-to-face is an experience of a lifetime and a moment you will never forget. An epic hunting safari adventure in the land of the ancient San is an experience that will remain with you forever! Combine a family vacation with a hunting adventure?
