Umlilo Safaris 2019 Diary

2017 Hunting Report

Today its 1 February 2019, and for most full time Outfitters in our industry it’s a stressful period for many reasons.

• generating enough bookings for coming season
• forecasting exchange rates correctly
• choosing wisely which Hunting Shows to attend
• hosting successful, well attended Hunting Presentations
• formulating interesting packages in an extremely competitive environment

2019 is also our 20th Year since we started. Looking back at our amazing journey, the Lord certainly had so much more planned for us than we ever imagined. HIS path for us surpassing our wildest expectations and the current booked hunts for this year underlines exactly that!

We are nearing full capacity already, with adventures leading us far & wide, with only selected open dates for new bookings.
We have hunts booked already all over Southern Africa.
• South Africa (Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, North West, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, Free State)
• Zambia (from the South East, to the Bangweulu Wetlands & into Luangwa Valley)
• Zimbabwe (North West & South East)

To all of you that haven’t decided yet: get in touch soon via phone or email for detailed 2019 offers!

  • 24 x Hunting Safaris completed in 2018, from 5 days/6 nights to 14 days/15 nights.
  • 67 International Guests, successfully hunted almost 700 Animals in 2018.

Our families were blessed with yet another successful and very much so an enjoyable hunting season. New friendships that’s been built with new/1st-time clients, the old friendships strengthened further with returning clients - some of whom returned for their 15th time in 19 years! That’s what Umlilo Safaris is all about and that’s why we love what we do.

Many a time on departure days it’s the tears through smiles that warm our hearts even more!
Thank you to all our valued Guests, and also to our entire Umlilo Safaris Team for your dedication and unselfish input in making 2018 another pinnacle point since we started back in 1999!

Umlilo Safaris is based close to the Sundays River Valley, near the town of Kirkwood in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. With its unspoilt emerald green coastline, its semi-arid Karoo region of grassy plains and rolling hills, scrub bush, lush forest and spectacular mountain ranges, the Eastern Cape offers the most diverse and beautiful scenery and hunting in the whole of South Africa.
Clients can choose the type of accommodation they prefer. We have various options available, ranging from our Traditional Safari Lodge, our oldest and most rustic camp to the 5 star rated VIP Safari Lodge. All lodges are within 1 hours drive from the Port Elizabeth Airport.
Highly experienced staff offers a wealth of knowledge regarding the area, the species & the hunting conditions.  Non-hunters are more than welcome and well catered for. There is a list of activities available and we make sure that these guests are well looked after and entertained.
