Our Objective is simple and clear - to promote hunting in Africa. And everything we do, focuses on this central mission. We believe that for the passionate hunters they are either hunting, or spend their time wishing they were hunting. This publication helps them get through that time when they are not actually in the bush. Our reader is more committed, more passionate and has tremendous interest in just about everything to do with the African Safari. From cover to cover the AHG brings you everything you need to know about hunting the great continent of Africa. From the southern tip of Africa to the northern reaches of Ethiopia, we go about pursuing our simple and unambiguous objective.

a dawn disrupts the darkness

It’s the vital role hunting plays in Africa’s conservation that’s my major passion. It underpins our entire eco-tourism industry. And eco-tourism is one of Africa’s great pillars of a sustainable future. Hunting in isolation has a slim chance defending its future. So why start a magazine, you may ask? Well, it’s the extraordinary hunting that’s on offer here. Be it the sheer diversity of species to hunt – both game and bird, not to mention the diversity of environments in which to hunt – that makes this continent, undoubtedly, the holy grail of worldwide hunting. Yet, so few people, comparatively speaking, have come here to hunt! During the 20 years plus of publishing the AHG, and despite tremendous feedback, there has been one consistent question. What’s the future of hunting in Africa? Personally, I could…

A response to John Ledger's CITES article: The World involvement in CITES is laudable but not ignorant. Countries who own nothing or give nothing to conservation created a voting system to control the "other", the less civilized people of the planet because "they just need help." Were not the oldest human fossils found near the Great African Rift? Trade came later. Between the Chinese government. influence of African commerce, the new colonialists, and the 1200+ at-distance controllers funding the anti-hunting groups in Africa, but not funding actual conservators, there will be another great African Rift, this one political. Unfortunately, this resembles a form of imposed emotional imperialism. Too strong? Funds from tourists pale in comparison to legitimate legal sport and meat hunting. While a tourist may spend thousands of whatever home currency, I…

south africa designates wild species as farm animals

There are four economic pillars to wildlife ranching. These are the breeding of animals for sale to stock other, often new, ranches; photographic tourism; wildlife products such as curios and game meat and hunting, including both local venison and ‘biltong’ hunting and trophy hunting. Together these four activities annually contribute more than R20 billion to the GDP of the country, with hunting being responsible currently for about R7,3 billion (R6, 3 billion local hunters and R1 billion foreign hunters). These hunters provide almost 150,000 tons of game meat for consumption in South Africa, a massive contribution to food security, considering that the country imports about R4 billion worth of meat annually. Breeding and live sales of game animals contributes almost R5 billion a year (data from https://www. farmingportal.co.za). The question now arises…
