Bulgaria is famous for its strict game management policies, that over the decades have resulted in some huge trophies of a high international standard. This applies to all of the common European game species: red stags, fallow buck, mouflon, wild boar and roebuck.
We have an exclusive agreement with one of the country’s finest districts - a wonderful area in the Stara Planina mountains, with a luxurious lodge, which with facilities such as a spa and massage, is also of interest for non-hunting companions.
In addition to the excellent individual hunts for game bearing excellent trophies, it is also possible to arrange really exclusive drive hunts on this hilly district of some 29,000 hectares. We have had a number of groups hunting on this district and these hunts have always been wildly successful. This is the district for the hunter who has the goal of securing a really fine trophy. There are not many places in Europe where you can find top class specimens of four different species of game that can all be targeted on a single autumn hunt.
