Clay Pigeon Shooting
Clay pigeon shooting is the art of shooting at special flying targets thrown by an electric trap, known as clay pigeons or clay targets, with a shotgun.
Activity includes a professional guide, a demonstration briefing and lesson, weapon and ammo, ear-guards, and clays.
Besides their natural beauty, the hills on the reserve are home to one of the most ancient art galleries in the world.
With the help of the of one of the most ancient art galleries in the world, the rock paintings found in the hills on the reserve give us a glimpse of the inner workings of the Bushmen (San) people that inhabited the area in the Middle Stone Age, over 70 000 years ago.
These paintings are by far the oldest form of art and tell stories of their hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Other treasures discovered include tools, pottery, and weapons. Old versions of a chess game can be found carved in to a lot of the rocks in the same area.
The paintings provide not only beauty and fascination but also a glimpse of the inner workings of the Bushmen society, and when accompanied with the knowledge of your guide, are sure to make for an incredible story.
Deep within the property, the Chifumbaze Ruins can be found built onto the edge of a mountain cliff.
Once home to the monarch of a tribe living over 600 years ago, the ancient palace was estimated to have been surrounded by 5 meter high walls and spanned over at least 500 meters of the mountain.
Constructed without mortar, it is a miracle that parts of this archaeological treasure still remains today and serves to remind us that we too are just visitors to this beautiful land.

An eco-educational safari offers a hands-on experience of the practical conservation efforts that take place on the Reserve, such as rhino security, anti-poaching operations, game management, and veterinary observations to name a few.
Our eco-educational programs are lead by conservation expert, Níall Beddy, who joined Greater Kuduland Safaris in 2013. Níall is a trained field guide with a background in wildlife monitoring and research and runs various conservation initiatives on the Reserve. His passion for conservation inspired him to launch an eco-educational program to educate guests on the important pillars of the natural eco-system.
Greater Kuduland has always put conservation first and with Níall's knowledge on this topic we hope our guests leave the Reserve with a stronger understanding of the important relationship between hunting and conservation.
