Conservation and Hunting – our synergistic approach

York Safaris is proud to offer excellent, fair chase, rifle and bow, hunting opportunities for plains game, on exclusive privately owned land in South Africa. Excellent game bird shooting is also offered during the course of a general hunt or special shoots can be catered for on request.

We fully support the view point that the conservation of wildlife is best achieved through the correct and wise utilisation of this renewable resource. The vital role played by ethical hunters in their positive contribution towards the conservation of our rich and diverse wildlife heritage cannot be over emphasised.

York Safaris caters for both the Local Biltong Hunting market as well as the International Trophy Hunting market as both play a pivotal role in conservation and animal management. With over 27 years of active involvement in the hunting industry York Safaris is able and always willing to give our clients insight into hunting techniques, shot placement and conservation philosophies.
