Rudi Bellingan is a qualified Electrical Engineer and completed his studies in 1998.

Full time Professional Hunting quickly took over and so started my career as an Apprentice PH, freelancing to some of the biggest outfitters in SA. I have successfully guided most of the Plains game and DG species in and around South Africa.

Aloe Ridge Safaris has concessions in other parts of Africa, including great Leopard and Buffalo areas in Zimbabwe. Good relationships with many Ranchers ensure that I have top quality trophies available throughout the year. We hunt a combination of high fence areas as well as low fenced or open areas. My hunting areas total in access of 200 000 acres with new concessions added every season. I spend many days scouting my areas, trying to secure the best quality trophies for my clients.
Our large hunting areas offer of all types of terrain, from Bush veld to open plains, and will accommodate hunters young and old. Aloe Ridge Safaris is situated 2hrs North of Port Elizabeth in a safe, Malaria free environment.

Hunted with Rudi at Aloe Ridge last year and found it to be top shelf.....I will hunt with him again. Feel free to contact me as a reference and ask me about my hunt. Hunted April of 2017 - Hunting was amazing. First class operation. Harvested 8 trophy animals. Feel free to contact me as a reference if you want info on my safari.
I have spent four safaris with Rudi Bellingan, we have shot more than fifteen types of games together. Each hunting provided me special experience. I could experience that Rudi was a professional hunter with high professional qualities, he is determined, good-humored, intelligent and a great organizer.

About to go on my 3rd Aloe Ridge Safaris hunting trip. To say this is a hunting trip is an understatement; all animals are top quality; the time spent in the field; at the lodge and the company with a guide like Rudi it's an experience that any passionate outdoors person can appreciate and guaranteed that you will go to South Africa as a guest and leave as a friend for life.
My safari with Aloe Ridge Safaris was phenomenal! Rudi made our entire experience top notch including the high quality animals we hunted, the food, interactions with local people and he really customized our time with him to meet our every need/request! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Aloe Ridge Safaris and Rudi!! Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about my experience...two thumbs up! I had the most amazing trip w Aloe Ridge Safaris. Rudi was absolutely amazing! I had never hunted before and only intended to get one animal, but ended up getting 6! I know I could have not done it without him. He was so good to us and always accommodated me and my husband. By far the best vacation I've EVER had. Looking forward to my next safari and It will ONLY be with Rudi!
" I am an experienced African DG hunter, having previously hunted with Rudi in 2009. We decided to celebrate my 70th birthday with my wife on a PG hunt at Aloe Ridge Safaris. This was one of the all time best hunts of my life. Rudi is the consummate PH and host. The game was plentiful and diverse, the living quarters were superb and the food, cooked by award winning chefs, incredible. It was all spot, walk and stalk fair chase hunting on a beautiful concession that was easily hiked. I cannot recommend Rudi and Aloe Ridge highly enough. We were so satisfied with all aspects of the experience that we are planning a return trip next year. Do not hesitate to book with Rudi; you won't be disappointed." "I returned to Aloe Ridge Safaris, to Rudi Bellingan. Last year, I hunted with another outfitter(P.H) which gave me a basis of comparison. If you wish to have a top quality hunting experience i suggest go to Aloe Ridge Safaris with Rudi. Breathtaking surroundings, delicious meals and lots more. Thank you for the quality trophies Rudi! Next year I'll come back to hunt with you!
