The proud owner of African Wild Side Safaris, Kobus Davel, is an experienced outfitter and professional hunter for more than 15 years.

African Wild Side Safaris (Trading as Uitvlugt Hunting Safaris) is near the town of Dullstroom, based in the beautiful scenic Mpumalanga Province of South Africa. We are only two and a half hours drive from Johannesburg (OR Tambo International) airport, where you will be personally picked up by us.

“Uitvlugt” is pronounced as “8 Flut”  and is the Afrikaans/Dutch meaning of a place to retreat to for refuge and tranquillity.

Kobus is registered with the Mpumalanga Nature Conservation, tourism and Parks Agency, a registered dedicated hunter and member of the South African Hunters and Game conversation Association (SAHGCA). He is also a member of the Confederated Hunters Association of South Africa (CHASA).

Although renowned for Big Five dangerous game hunting, it is through hunting plains game species that Kobus builds the novice’s confidence to such a degree that upgrading in species hunting follows. From the front of our lodges or during game drives, species expected to be seen are Eland, Gemsbuck, black wildebeest, blue wildebeest, hartebeest, zebra, springbuck, duiker, buffalo, impala,  warthog and more.

Our hunting safaris are aimed at those who wish to have a full African experience. My lovely wife Vera, and I, cater to individuals, groups or families, specializing in rifle or bow hunting. We focus on good service, good food, and atmosphere. Our main lodging is on the farm Uitvlugt with further excellent lodging facilities on all concessions where we hunt.

African Wild Side Safaris has some brilliant hunting package deals or we can tailor-make your hunting trip with value-for-money safaris that fit the hunter's requirements. Days on safari, species choice and an extended holiday are all up to the guest. While being over here, experience Kruger National Park, elephant rides, bungee jumping, ziplining, and fishing. All just between one hour to two hours away.

Our mission is to provide clients with the best possible safari adventure South Africa has to offer and my goal is to ensure that every person visiting African Wild Side Safaris has an amazing experience. We look forward to hosting you on the experience of a lifetime!

You only have one life, live it…. go hunting!
