Hunting South Africa - This is the most popular hunting destination for first-timers to Africa, offering a splendid range of plains game species. Almost all hunting in South Africa takes place on fenced private land.
The TOPS List was introduced in South Africa in 2008 by the Department of Environmental Affairs and stands for 'Threatened Or Protected Species'. The TOPS List includes several popular South African hunting species, which are indicated on the South African Hunting Species list below...
If you want to hunt any of these designated species you must have a special TOPS Hunting Permit for each animal. You must tell your hunter in advance if you want to hunt a TOPS animal and he must get the permit(s) before you start hunting. The permit will specify the hunter's name & address, the location of the hunt and a permit validity period.
You, the hunter, if you successfully hunt a TOPS animal, must sign the permit at the end of your hunt. If you don't, an export permit for your TOPS trophy will not be issued. When signing, carefully check all your contact details are exactly correct on the permit. If there is any discrepancy, the hunt may be investigated and your trophy shipment may be delayed.
It is illegal to hunt any TOPS Listed animal without a TOPS Hunting Permit in hand. Do NOT hunt any of these animals if there is no permit present at the time of your hunt. Do not be lulled into a false sense of security with promises of getting the permit later.
