Welcome to Safari Trails International

Providing each and every hunter with an ethical, fair chase hunt that will not only provide a challenge but also great trophies and memories “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.

In 2014 Andrew Harvey of “Andrew Harvey Safaris” and Russell Lovemore decided to merge the two companies as one. They have had a long standing friendship and have supported each other for a good part of 20 years in the hunting industry and after much research and consideration on how to maximize our quality of service and our companies to be one of the best in the business, we decided the best way would be to merge the two companies together.

Feedback from our Guests

I would like to THANK you all for making our trip to SA a wonderful experience! The Doramus / Burnell family had the time of our lives! Don’t think I would change anything, except maybe my shot at the warthog!  Debbie and Christy from Gracy Travel – Absolutely fantastic! Russell and Julie, your hospitality was fit for a king! We enjoyed time at your camp with your boys. Brendon, and Mike, our tracker, with their knowledge of the African flora and fauna were great and a treat to be with too! Spending time at Hellspoort Valley Game Farm was an unforgettable experience…

I recently completed a plains game hunt with Safari Trails International in the East Cape of Africa. In one short word I’d describe the hunt experience and stay at Majiki Lodge as FANTASTIC! Despite having traveled extensively and hunted many other locations and game, this has been, by a wide margin, the most extraordinary hunting trip of my life. And one of the most extraordinary locations to visit. My hunting friend and I will surely return again and I highly recommend Safari International with Russell Lovemore and his team…

Thank you both for making my “Trip of a Lifetime” more than I could have ever imagined. Russ’ expertise in judging game animals in the field afforded me the opportunity to harvest “above average” trophies which I will enjoy forever. His Team of assistants made my hunting time safe and comfortable. My Thanks to Julie for being the perfect host with first class accommodations and gourmet style meals. Most of all, I want to thank you for my new heartfelt respect for the animals of Africa and the hospitality of the people there…

The hunting at Safari Trails International is exciting and challenging with lots of animals and excellent chances for success. With Russ’s hunting experience and knowledge of his land, which has been in his family for 7 generations, and surrounding ranches, confidence is high. Russ is down to earth, humble and hardworking and will do everything he can to put you on good animals. The lodge and lodging are first rate and a very nice place to bring your family.Spending time with Russ, his better half Julie and their two boys, Chad and Mitch, is a great benefit of hunting…

Since our trip to South Africa with you I have been asked a million times, “did you shoot that Zebra in Africa?’ or “what is that animal? Where did you get it?” Shortly after everyone wants all the details of our trip, specifically who we went with and how the hunt went. I am always happy to tell them that we went with Russell Lovemore, Safari Trails International, and had an amazing time. Not only did we see lots of game and take some great trophies, of which were my wife’s first trophy animals ever, but we got to spend some great evenings around the dinner table and the fire pit…

After much deliberation and a great recommendation from friend and hunting icon Jim Shockey, we chose Russ Lovemore and Safari-Trails International for our first African adventure. My non-hunting wife Debbie, scout/tracker/ skinner Mike, tracking dogs Fudge and Diesel, Russell and I spent a week hiking, duck-walking, knee-crawling and belly-crawling all over Handfield Farm and other nearby properties, bowhunting walk-and-stalk style for zebra, impala, gemsbok, wildebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck and duiker…

Since I was out of high school my dream was to go to Africa and hunt a Buffalo and sable. Well all my dreams came true with Russ and Safari Trails International. In life there are events that come and go, but the 3 weeks that I spent in Mozambique with Russ are as vivid as yesterday.Not only did I get my target package animals but he put me on many more including a 16′ Nile crocodile.Not only will I cherish my trophies and memories forever but I will return to hunt again and make new “memories for a lifetime.
