Since 2005 , Hercules Safaris launched itself into the professional hunting and safari industry , with confidence and conviction. Hercules Olivier (founder) , realised that he would have to start hunting/guiding professionally sooner than later, as the hunting grounds was just to attractive to stay away from, and as a young man, his budget could not support such an irresistible passion for the wild.
The company initially started as a plains game predominant safari provider, and then took a swirl into the neighbouring countries of South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe , on a more Dangerous game heavy pursuit. This steered us into doing Both Plains game and Dangerous game , by bow , rifle, handgun or muzzleloader , for our clients , at any permitted time.
The past 15 years has been a humbling journey of growth for the company, which is well known throughout the USA and Canada today.
Still guiding frequently , Hercules aims to maintain the specialised one on one time , with all clients. Groups no larger than 10 people at a time , are adopted into the main camp , to secure attention to detail. Main camp Mokwaripa is based in the limpopo delta of south Africa in a Malaria free zone. Main camp consists of 6064 acres of hunting land around camp. We have adjacent 100 000 acres of hunting space available for your safari. The Waterberg district is very famous for the massive greater Kudu hunt and is the favourite area for bow hunters to harvest them. Exclusive hunting dates are kept, for those who wish to be in camp alone, or with their own comrades , family or friends , for the specific time of their hunt.
Hercules is also a musician and enjoys spending time around the campfire, playing guitar and entertaining guest. Nothing beats a campfire with live music, a cocktail and some good old African hunting stories.
