Based in South Africa in the Eastern Cape Province.

The hunting areas range between flat, open thornveld savannah, open grassland, rocky hills and densely wooded bush. Hunting is mainly from March to October, which tends to be cool and dry.
Daytime temperatures are warm to hot, whereas at night it can get cold and a warm jacket would be needed. However, during the day temperatures can reach 30°C. The summer rains start in January, ending in March.

The South African areas were previously stock ranches. There are no inhabitants on the land used. The main hunting lodge is on 60 000 acres and the property has a perimeter game fence. Bow and rifle hunting is catered for, and it is in a malaria free zone.

Tam Safaris is home to three of the Big Five – lion, rhino and buffalo. The new world record white rhino was taken last year, and vita-dart hunts of rhino are done as part of a Tam Safaris rhino management programme. This is a unique experience and a great way to complete your Big Five. New stock is introduced to enhance the gene pool and some managed hunts are conducted. Their most important goal is to ensure good trophies and that the client has a memorable hunt. The minimum hunt offered is seven days.

Tam Safaris has two hunting camps. To give complete comfort for hunting clients, the sophisticated elegance of the up-market accommodation, with no luxury or detail spared, ensures personal attention and care from the hosts at all times. Each private suite is complemented by the artistic safari-style decor which emphasizes the hunting surroundings. All have en suite bathrooms, flush toilets, hot and cold water, constant electricity and are fully air-conditioned. If there is a power failure there is a back-up generator. There is also a swimming pool, a boma, satellite TV, landline telephone as well as mobile phone and free Wi-Fi coverage. A maximum of 10 hunters can be accommodated at any one time.

The trophies once dried are stored separately and tags are used for identification. There is also an abattoir with a cold room. All the skinners have 2 to 10 years experience.
