H.A.R.T®ing in South Africa

H.A.R.T®  stands for Hunt And Release Technique, a unique approach that parallels traditional hunting that emphasizes the entire experience and saves the “harvest” or “kill” for when necessary or warranted thus conserving the wildlife resource in a sustainable and ethical manner.
Our H.A.R.T® Adventures in South Africa offer the opportunity to H.A.R.T®; a variety of game species, including kudu, impala, warthog, the big five and more. However, the emphasis is on the adventure and the thrill of the stalk.
