We are glad to announce that Comre Safaris will be the outfitters on Quaggasfontein.
Together we will make a great hunting experience.
The Northern Cape Province of South-Africa – it is here in the heart of South-Africa that the true spirit of Africa soars above magnificent landscapes and where each day begins and ends with majestic solar displays! Quaggasfontein has its own unique qualities that spans over 28000 acres of unsurpassed beauty.
The vast Northern Cape is by far the largest Province of South-Africa, yet it is the province with the smallest population. It is a REAL HUNTER’S PARADISE!
Our hunting lodges can accommodate 16 people and are rated as some of the very best in the country, and our highly trained staff will cater to your every need!
The Bontebok is a type of Antelope. Its head and body are 4.6 – 5 feet in length together. Its tail is 12-18 inches long. Males weigh one 135 pounds; females are lighter and slightly smaller. The Bontebok have deer-shaped bodies. Their hind legs are shorter than their front legs so their back slopes down to the tail.
African buffalo is the only species of wild cattle that can be found in Africa. It is also known as Cape buffalo, forest buffalo and savanna buffalo. African buffalo inhabits sub-Saharan parts of Africa. There are four subspecies of African buffalo that differs in color, size and type of habitat where they can be found.
The Eland is the world’s largest antelope. Males have twisted horns which are thick and tightly spiralled, growing up to 25″ in females and to 50″ in males. Eland belong to the same group as kudus, nyala and bushbuck.
The Gemsbok is a large antelope of striking appearance with long, spearlike horns. It has a thick, horselike neck with a short mane and a compact, muscular body.
The kudu is considered to be the most handsome of the tragelaphine antelopes, which includes the bongo, eland, nyala, bushbuck and sitatunga.
A long-bodied, medium-size antelope, with hindquarters taller than forequarters. Hooves are elongated and splayed that aid in aquatic habitats (see Behavior).
A medium sized antelope that have distinct coloration. Reddish brown coat on upper body that transitions to light tan on lateral side (bottom half) of body.
Sometimes nicknamed the “Harley Davidson” of the antelope tribe because of the configuration of his horns, this ‘beest’ is truly a strange-looking creature. The elongated appearance of the face is exaggerated by the smooth, unringed section of the horns, which continues on the same line as the face.
Closely related to horses and donkeys, the zebra (subgenuses Hippotigris and Dolichohippus) is best known for its black and white striped body. In fact, zebra stripe patterns are unique to each individual. These stripes are believed to be camouflage devices that help zebras hide well in the grass.
Medium-sized antelope with black spots below the ears. The color of the body is grayish with a red sheen and the neck is darker. The points of the ears are rounded. The most obvious feature is their big white bushy tails. Horns: Only males have horns.
The springbok is a medium-sized brown and white antelope-gazelle. It is extremely fast and can reach speeds of 100 km/h and can leap 4 m through the air.
The sable antelope is another of the Hippotragus (horse) tribe antelope. As is the case of the roan, his Afrikaans name (Swartwitpens) meaning black white belly, is rather undignified when applied to this most regal and strikingly beautiful animal.
The flightless ostrich is the world’s largest bird. They roam African savanna and desert lands and get most of their water from the plants they eat. Though they cannot fly, ostriches are fleet, strong runners. They can sprint up to 43 miles (70 kilometers) an hour.
Neither graceful nor beautiful, warthogs are nonetheless remarkable animals. They are found in most of Africa south of the Sahara and are widely distributed in East Africa. They are the only pigs able to live in areas without water for several months of the year.
As its name would indicate, the waterbuck inhabits areas that are close to water in savanna grasslands, gallery forests, and riverine woodlands south of the Sahara. Such habitats not only provide sustenance, but long grasses and watery places in which to hide from predators.
The ungainly gnu earned the Afrikaans name wildebeest, or “wild beast,” for the menacing appearance presented by its large head, shaggy mane, pointed beard, and sharp, curved horns.
This odd animal is certainly the most bizarre living antelope with the mane and tail of a horse, the face of a steer and the delicate legs of a buck. Its appearance is matched by its freaky behaviour.
