Getaway to Africa

The myth that an African hunting trip is just for the rich and famous, is busted in this series, where Francois Els and his team of talented professional hunting guides showcase what every day American hunters experience on an African hunting safari. Dozens of species the “Dark Continent” has to offer, is hunted and viewers get a close-up look at the sights and sounds of the African landscape of forests, bushveld and semi-desert areas. Epic impact shots, remarkable rifles and great stories around a campfire, is what you can expect from this action-packed series.

The Kaiwhai Safaris team explains why conservation in Africa goes hand-in-hand with hunting these magnificent trophy beasts. The interactions between the hunter, hunting guides, local communities and the animals are highlighted to give viewers a better understanding of how important trophy hunting is to the remote communities in Africa.
