If you plan on hunting Africa, do it with Native Executive Security.
A dream destination for hunters all across the world is to one day tackle the dark continent. Hunting Africa ranks fairly high on just about every hunter's bucket list but actually making it happen can be a fairly daunting task. Fortunately, for those hunters who have the desire and the ability to make this trip a reality, one company has the means to make it happen.
Native Executive Security, a United States-based South African Safari operation, owns multiple concessions in the Limpopo Province. These multi-thousand-acre grounds border Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, as well as encompassing a large section of Kruger National Park. This is exactly the area where your safari would begin.
Just to clear the air, African safari's tend to warrant a bad reputation inside the United States. Sketchy foreign based guides and outfitters set an example of taking more pride in how much money they can make and how many animals are killed versus the quality or character of the hunt itself. This is where Native Executive Security has changed the game, and in my own opinion, of hunting Africa.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with the owners of Native Executive Security and asked every single question I ever had regarding hunting Africa. They answered everything with the utmost confidence of what they do and how they do it. Every step of the way, from your front door to your first steps on the African plain, is guided by their staff. They even provide security and assistance, when not hunting, if you wish to take a tour of South Africa.
As far as the details go, two hunters can make this dream a reality for $9,900. This covers the cost of literally everything involved to include travel agents, rifle import, rentals, accommodations, food, trackers, spotters, skinners, and everything in between to include 24/7 professional security. What is not included is the airfare and the tags of the animals you wish to pursue. That part is on you. However, they will set it up for you.
The hunt itself is completely guided by the staff of Native Execute Security. The goal of the hunt is clearly defined by what African animal you choose to hunt. However, if other animals may present themselves, the opportunity is yours to take. Different animals have different prices for their tags, and like everything else, it is all clearly defined well in advance.
In the big scheme of things, you have to decide if taking on this type of hunt is truly for you. If it is, finding a company to make it happen, like Native Executive Security, is the first step in the right direction. It's a large investment to make, but it's also a bucket list wish that might not happen twice in a lifetime.
