Umdende Hunting Safaris – Big Game

One of South Africa's premiere destinations for plains game and bird shooting

The Comins family has owned Umdende for 2 generations and has a long working relationship with Frontiers. They offer plains game, Big 5, waterfowl and upland bird hunting. Trips can be extended with photo safaris, cultural touring and fishing for trout, tigerfish and Indian Ocean saltwater species.

Driven by the experienced Professional Hunter Clayton Comins, Umdende has been organising big game hunting and bird shooting professionally for 15 years. They will assist you with all of your requirements, along with the highly skilled and motivated local Zulu trackers and skinners.

Shooting

There are 13 bird species and 31 plains game species are available on privately held concessions ranging in size from 10,000-350,000 acres. Properties are high fence, low fence or no fence. Dangerous game hunting available upon request.

Accommodation

Accommodation ranges from 3-5 star and are equipped with all the modern amenities you would expect. Nights can be very cold during the winter months and all lodges are heated. Mobile phone reception is widely available and most lodges have Wi-Fi in the reception area or individual rooms.

Gear

High quality shotguns and rifles are available for rent. Hunters bringing their own firearms will need to obtain a SAPS import permit and must apply well in advance. Light-weight, comfortable hiking boots recommended. Waterfowl hunting is done out of dry blinds, so no waders are necessary.

Trip Specifics

Guests fly commercially to Johannesburg. The Umdende staff will greet you upon arrival and transfer you by road to camp. US and UK Citizens do not require a visa. Plains game hunting is available year-round (June-September best time). Waterfowl and upland bird hunting season is May 31-August 31. For repeat travelers looking for a different safari experience, Umdende offers 2 additional options: night time predator hunting for jackal and aardwolf or daytime hunting with dogs for bushpig or caracal.

Rates

Plains game hunting is $450/day 1x1 basis, $350/day 2x1 basis.
Bird hunting $800/day per gun with a minimum of 3 hunters.
14% VAT and trophy fees excluded.
