Wing Shooting Safaris in South Africa

South Africa is a Hidden Gem for Wing Shooting!


Wing Shooting with Heritage Safaris has garnered high praise due to the meticulous organization and detail that go into preparations of our shoots. The main target is African Rock Pigeons, which are found in phenomenal numbers. These birds are considered to be one of the most challenging birds in the world of wing shooting due to their uncanny speed and unpredictable flight patterns.

In advance of our client’s arrival, 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. Because of the recurring abundance of birds there is no bag limit and shooters can expect to make between 300-500 shots per day.

On a typical wing shooting safari the day begins with a delicious freshly prepared breakfast then off to the fields. There is a morning shoot followed by a delightful in-field prepared meal for a midday break.  After lunch there is a 2nd shoot and finally back to the lodge for sundowners and bonfire snacks followed by a mouth-watering dinner and lots of laughs and stories about the day.

The wing shooting season in South Africa is best between the months of March to July. Please enquire about our wing shooting packages.
