“For a Lifetime”
Russell and Julie Lovemore started “Safari Trails International” in 1998 and from its humble beginnings it has become a major player in the Southern African hunting industry. Offering hunts all over Southern Africa, with South Africa and Mozambique being the main focus.
Russell is a sixth generation South African rancher who started hunting at a young age, having been introduced to it by his grandfather. Russell has been hunting professionally since 1996 and has gained vast experience in both plains and dangerous game. He has hunted in South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Cameroon.
With experienced and seasoned professional hunters, you the hunter, are assured of a great safari. Our aim is to provide each and every hunter with an ethical, fair chase hunt that will not only provide a challenge but also great trophies and memories and experiences “For a Lifetime”
Safari Trails International (STI) holds the hunting rights too many thousands of acres in the Eastern Cape where we can offer over 40 species to both the first time hunter as well as the seasoned Safari hunters. Although based out of our lodge on our Family property, we also utilize a range of other beautiful lodges and camps allowing us to spend more time hunting and less time travelling. We have always encouraged family hunts and welcome young hunters and first-time hunters.
It is time again to expand STI and we are currently in discussions with our good friend and well known professional hunter and outfitter Andrew Harvey of “Andrew Harvey Safaris” to form a partnership. Andrew and his wife Mandy will certainly bring much expertise to the benefit of Safari Trails International. We hope to finalize the merger within next year and look forward to working with them.
STI is also busy with negotiating a deal to obtain our own hunting area in Mozambique, this will enable us offer a few additional species such as leopard, Lion, Elephant, Crocodile, Hippo and more. The tiger fishing is also world class in this area. Keep a look out for further news.
We look forward to getting to know you and share our campfire with you, soon!!
