How about a Shoot ‘n’ Safari with the GunGoddess this summer?


A safari experience in South Africa is always good. Throw in a bit of shooting action, on a package designed exclusively for friends of, and it gets even better!

Tracking, trailing & spoor identification

Participants will learn the ancient art of tracking, trailing and spoor identification, which has been perfected by the San Bushmen and still used today. The Big 5 (lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, rhinoceros) will be tracked on foot, if fresh tracks are found. Information on the birds, plants, insects and animals encountered on the way will also be provided, together with Shangaan myths and legends and the guides’ amusing anecdotes.

Firearm sessions

Firearm sessions include the use of a pistol, shotgun, semi-automatic rifle and large-bore bolt-action rifle. Participants shoot a variety of man-made, static & moving targets, jungle lane shoots, timed shoots and a selection of exercises to get the adrenalin and competitive spirit going.

Bush craft

Participants will be treated to an interactive bush craft session, covering topics such as lighting fire using friction, carrying a fire from one location to another, making rope and snares from plants in the area, making teas and herbal remedies, baking bread underground and more!

Bateleur Mobile Camp is situated in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park. This prime wilderness area boasts the ‘Big Five’, a large diversity of antelope species, the entire range of smaller predators and over 500 bird species.

This adventure can be booked on dates of your choice if you have a group of 4 or more, or join the GunGoddess group from 4 – 9 August. See photos, contact info, camp and course details at:
