Safari Duration:

Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris recommends a minimum hunting period for certain species involved in the hunt. However Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris cannot guaranty any success towards any hunt even if Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris recommend certain minimum days for certain safaris. The recommended duration of a safari will vary according to your trophy requirements and as a general rule of thumb; Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris expects to hunt a trophy a day. Some animals are more difficult than others to hunt and therefore require more time to be hunted successfully. Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris except any length in days for safaris, however we will recommend certain days for certain hunts.

Shaka Africa Trophy Safaris will do all in its abilities to ensure a successful hunt, and safety to all the participants of said hunt.
