Stormberg Concession

MOUNTAIN TERRAIN & OPEN PLAINS

Walking and stalking at Stormberg

The Stormberg Concession terrain is mountainous and is situated in the Northern parts of the Eastern Cape of South Africa.  This area has witnessed a number of battles in both the Boer and Frontier wars.  The altitude extends up to 7500 feet above sea level.

Hunting in this area can be considered as proper ethical hunting as there will be mainly walking and stalking due to the strenuous terrain. Hunters here will be exposed to long range shooting, so a good flat shooting rifle with variable scope is advisable. Cool temperatures can be experienced in this area; therefore it is advisable to bring warm clothes. The days can be temperate, with cold mornings and evenings.

The Stormberg Concession is 8 000 acres of Mountain Terrain and open plains, offering spectacular views. This concession is situated approximately two and a half hours from East London. This Concession is home to large herds of Mountain Reedbuck, Springbuck and some magnificent Blesbuck.  This is also home to the very elusive Grey Rhebuck or Vaal Rhebuck, which always makes for a very exciting and challenging hunt. The Grey Rhebuck has the reputation of being one of the most difficult small antelope to hunt in South Africa, lots of walking and stalking will be needed to get this elusive animal.

Accommodation is a traditional farm house style lodge that has an open plan kitchen. There are three double bed rooms with two en-suite bathrooms as well as two bedrooms perfect for youngsters/kids.  The Stormberg Concession will make a great 7 to 10 day safari combined with one of the coastal properties. By doing this it adds to your African experience as you are able to see different landscapes and habitats of a variety of animal species.
