Wing shooting in South Africa –
A hidden gem!

Wing Shooting with Heritage Safaris has garnered high praise due to the meticulous organization and detail that go into preparations of our shoots, being closely compared to similar experiences in Argentina. Our shoots take place outside of Bloemfontein City. In advance of the client arriving, our professional staff is hard at work pinpointing flight patterns and blind placement to ensure a high quality experience. Attracted by the broad fields of sunflower, maize and wheat, the fast moving Rock Pigeon and Dove provide abundant wing shooting opportunities.

We offer classic wing shooting for the true scattergun enthusiast with a delightful in-the-field prepared meal for a midday break. Because of the recurring abundance of birds there is no bag limit and shooters can expect to make between 300-500 shots per day.

The best season for wing shooting in South Africa is between Beginning of March to June.
