Welcome to Johan Calitz Safaris
High-End, Elite Safaris
Johan Calitz Safaris was established in 1987 in Botswana, Africa. Johan has been hunting for over 40 years and shot his first elephant and buffalo at the age of 14. With hunting being a huge part of his childhood and an absolute passion, he opened his first hunting company in the early 1980’s and then started Johan Calitz Safaris in 1987. Johan Calitz Safaris had five hunting concessions in Botswana and specialised in dangerous game in wild, un-fenced areas. Johan Calitz Safaris has expanded its operation over the last few years to the rest of Africa. Andrew Walker and Wikus Groenewald, experienced professional hunters, joined Johan and created a three man team of passionate and dedicated hunters.
Years of Experience
Johan Calitz Safaris was established in 1987 in Botswana, Africa.
With over 30 years of experience we promise to provide our clients with quality, first-class safaris.
2021 was a season to remember! After an 8-year ban it was great to be back in the Botswana wilderness walking amongst giants and stalking herds of buffalo that came together in the thousands. We hunted elephant, buffalo, leopard, eland, kudu, impala, zebra and steenbuck. We came out of the season with some exceptional trophies.
Our average ivory weight was 67Ibs and Johan and Wikus both managed to find some huge bulls that weighed in over 70Ibs. The biggest elephant hunted in our concession was 86Ibs. Ronnie also guided an elephant hunt where the ivory measured over 86 inches. One of the largest buffalo shot in Botswana this year was guided by Andrew in our concession, this old duggaboy had a spread of 47 inches.
2021 was a great season and we cannot wait to see what 2022 has in store for us!
