Our objective is simple and clear – to promote hunting in Africa. And everything we do, focuses on this central mission. We believe that for the passionate hunters they are either hunting, or spend their time wishing they were hunting. This publication helps them get through that time when they are not actually in the bush. Our reader is more committed, more passionate and has tremendous interest in just about everything to do with the African safari.
Our offices and bases are in Canada, and in South Africa and we are the only magazine of its kind to attend international hunting EXPOs, publish and distribute both in Africa and in the USA and host our own hunting expos. Our team of dedicated staff are based in Montana, Ontario, Johannesburg and New York.

So when it comes to Africa and hunting, if you are trying to reach a serious buyer be it clothing, art, guns, ammo, hunting outfit, optics, taxidermist, booking agent, charter company, insurance or any other hunting accessory – your decision to select our publication and ancillary products would be a great choice!
