THIS IS WHAT YOU CAME FOR…
...there’s a decision to make and only seconds to
make it - what you do now may save your
life…could even make you a hero
…is in two parts: you and the man standing next to
you. He is the one who has read the track, the
wind, the steaming dung, he is the man who has
counselled you, whose skills brought you here and
finally fashioned this moment. You’ve dreamt of this
for years and wondered how you would handle it,
well, the imagining is over - the dagga boy is right
in front of you and is about to sort you out.
Christo asks that you spend time reviewing your
many options along with the highlights in the slide
shows and then talk to him - for that will be the
beginning of a plan, your hunting plan, the plan that
will make this safari the most exciting of your life…
THE OTHER CHALLENGE - THE GLOBAL ONE AND HOW
...to fairly represent the impact of hunting on the
land and hunted wildlife populations of Southern
Africa and ultimately across the planet.
MABULA PRO SAFARIS PRESENT SOME FACTS
Global communications make it easy to teach,
advise and counsel and are used here to sum
The value of huntable wildlife populations
has grown enormously in recent years.
Driven by growing global demand for
hunting, South Africa’s unique flora and
fauna wealth has drawn the greatest global
These market forces have stimulated both
government and private interests in a co-
operative effort to prepare and return under
utilised and marginal land to its original
As in any competitive environment - benefits
flow from tighter control over the well being
of the hunted populations and the land they
occupy. Wildlife management programs,
developed and pioneered in South Africa are
now in use internationally
The steady improvement of vast tracts of
land in South Africa promises to gift future
generations with land holding the kind of
wildlife populations that existed - before the
‘old style’ hunters arrived - many centuries
Christo and Stella Gomes created Mabula
Pro Safaris - building into its operational
ethic behaviours and structures
consistent with the long term
sustainability of the hunted wildlife
populations in their many reserves.
Mabula Pro Safaris only offers hunting in
conservation areas that form part of an ongoing
wildlife management program and that includes
our own wildlife reserves. Only huntable surpluses
are offered and all hunting is done by fair chase or
‘walk and stalk’ with all activities adhering strictly
to the Professional Hunters Association of
Southern Africa’s Ethics Code. Christo’s business
is a long standing member of this association
whose mission is the protection, conservation and
sustainable use of South Africa’s natural
resources - through its focus on the promotion of
ethical hunting throughout its hunting membership.
Over the years Mabula Pro Safaris has built
strong relationships with a number of excellent
safari outfitters whose home bases and hunting
concessions are further afield in Namibia,
Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. These
associations extend Mabula Pro Safaris wildlife
reserves and together provide an unrivalled offer.
Your safari really begins with a call to Christo.
He is uniquely placed to turn your dreams of an
African safari into a reality so vivid you’ll return to
Africa again and again. He will create a magic
blend of diversity and pace with combinations of
big game hunting, wingshooting, photography and
fishing - you make the call.
All game hunted is either turned into gourmet
meals in Christo’s safari lodges and camps,
fed to the vultures with some always being made
available to disadvantaged communities in the
area being hunted. No part of any animal is
Come hunt with us! Join us in the dust of a
moving herd of buffalo - it will electrify you.
It will excite every nerve you ever had!
You gotta try it!
There’s no habitat in Southern Africa that
has not felt the stare of a lion, nor a night
entirely free of their grunting roars.
There’re few places that have not felt the
thunder of a running herd…
Christo will be somewhere in Zambia,
South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, so why
not join him and find your moment in
