Classic 28 day African hunting safari

Classic 28 day African hunting safari with Hunting in Africa Safaris

Robert Ruark was not the first African big game hunter from overseas to hunt dangerous game in Africa. What set him apart from everybody else was his ability to put words to writing to the extent that the reader could smell the wood smoke, taste the Cape buffalo stew and see the southern cross with the naked eye 10 000 miles away from the bushveld.

The abilities of his PH, Harry Selby, became legendary over time and he is still recognized as one of the all-time great white hunters of the African continent.

African hunting safaris in those days were much longer than they are today and with this hunt we are trying to recreate to a certain extent what Ruark and Selby experienced in those days. Of course our vehicles and air-conditioning systems are much better than during those days and we certainly prefer it that way.

Within the limitations of human encroachment we will strive to offer as an authentic African hunting experience as possible. Hunting elephant in Zimbabwe is on the menu as is leopard hunting. Cape buffalo can be hunted in Zimbabwe or South Africa. A lion tag is easier to come by in South Africa and a true walk-and-stalk hunt can be promised. The other trophies in this hunt are available on either side of the Limpopo and should be taken as they present themselves.

We look forward to having you on this epic hunt with us. Smell the wood smoke? Join us for a taste of the Cape buffalo stew.

On this hunt we will be hunting dangerous game for which you will need a minimum 375 caliber rifle. This hunt is usually scheduled between South Africa and Zimbabwe and specifically excludes all airfares and or chartered flights. A close approximation can be given for charter flights which you are welcome to pay direct. If more economical commercial flights are available you will be advised to the effect and your travel agent can book the flights direct.

The hunter must be physically fit to participate in this hunt as a lot of walking is expected and hunting days can exceed 16 hours on a regular basis. Join us on our Classic 28 African hunting safari experience in the old style with modern air conditioning and hot showers.

Bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa with Hunting in Africa Safaris

Best Cape buffalo bow hunting opportunities in South Africa offered by the best Cape buffalo bow hunting outfitters in South Africa and Hunting in Africa Safaris.

 

Here are some Cape buffalo bow hunting tips when bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa

  • Average shooting distance when bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa – our bow hunting hides (known as bow hunting blinds over here) are seldom further away than 19 to 23 yards from your trophy Cape buffalo

 

  • Draw weight for bow hunting Cape buffalo – any increment greater than minimum draw mass may be used. Any draw weight equal to or greater than 95 lbs is recommended for bow hunting Cape buffalo. However, we are more interested in the Kinetic Energy (KE) than the actual draw weight of the bow.

 

  • Best broad heads for bow hunting Cape buffalo -  broadhead should be a one-piece broadhead which must be resharpenable and at least 220 grains in weight. A 2-blade fixed cut-on-impact broadhead has the best penetration abilities and you will be needing it

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting Cape buffalo: broad side shot – Cape buffalo have a rather large vital area when thinking about bow hunting shot placement. On a broad side shot it is recommended to place the arrow right on the shoulder of the Cape buffalo in line with the front leg, one third of the way up from the bottom of the chest to the hump on the back. This shot will result in a high heart / lung shot leading to the Cape buffalo expiring in the least amount of time

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting Cape buffalo: quartering to –  such shots are not recommended

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting Cape buffalo: quartering away – on a quartering away shot care should be taken not to attempt to have the arrow penetrate through too much stomach content. However, a quartering away bow shot on Cape buffalo can be placed by bisecting the angle formed by the front feet into a position one third of the way up from the bottom of the brisket to the top of the back

 

  • What is the cost to bow hunt Cape buffalo in South Africa – we have set the Cape buffalo bow hunting prices for the 2014 African bow hunting season at $ 14 950-00 less 10% all-inclusive of trophy fee, daily rates and other hunting associated costs

 

  • What is the best time of year to bow hunt Cape buffalo in South Africa – we suggest the best time for bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa would be between May and October lasting from the early dry season to the end of the dry season.

 

  • Kinetic energy required to bow hunt Cape buffalo in South Africa in foot-pounds (ft / lbs) – minimum kinetic energy required for bow hunting Cape buffalo is 80 ft / lbs

 

  • Minimum arrow weight required when bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa in grains (gr) – a minimum arrow weight of 880 gr to 900 gr is suggested with an overall minimum arrow weight of 700 gr

 

  • Broad head weight for bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa in grains (gr) – the broad head used for bow hunting Cape buffalo should be a fixed 2-blade cut-on-impact type and have a minimum weight of 220 gr.

 

  • Do not use mechanical broad heads on these extremely tough animals

 

  • The shaft of the arrow should be thinner than the ferrule of the broad head

We look forward assisting you on your South African Cape buffalo bow hunt.

This shot will result in a high heart / lung shot leading to the hippo expiring in the least amount of time.

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting hippo: quartering to –  these shots are not recommended because hippos have their massive heads down many times obscuring the vital frontal shot placement area

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting hippo: quartering away – on a quartering away shot care should be taken not to attempt to have the arrow penetrate through too much stomach content.

Our lion bow hunting prices are pre-determined in different categories so you know what you are in for before the hunt commences. An option to have your lion bow hunt professionally filmed is available for your consideration.

 

Here are some lion bow hunting tips when bow hunting lion in South Africa

  • Average shooting distance when bow hunting lion – we hunt lions ethically and on foot. Your average bow hunting shot on lion is in the region of 20 to 25 yards. Please bear in mind we may be charged at that short distance leaving the Professional Hunter no option but to defend the people by taking a shot. In such an event the lion is considered to be your trophy, but on the upside, we have never had to do this in the past

 

  • Draw weight for bow hunting lion – any increment greater than minimum draw mass may be used. Any draw weight equal to or greater than 95 lbs is recommended for bow hunting lion, or any bow that will yield the recommended KE

This shot will result in a high heart / lung shot leading to the lion expiring in the least amount of time.

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting lion: quartering to –  on a quartering to shot it is recommended to place the arrow midway between the angle formed by the front legs, approximately where the neck joins the brisket. These shots are mostly risky and should only be attempted by experienced bow hunters because a lion has a tendency to look sideways at irregular intervals which could lead to an arrow hitting the jaw region. We want to avoid this at all cost.

 

  • Shot placement when bow hunting lion: quartering away – on a quartering away shot care should be taken not to attempt to have the arrow penetrate through too much stomach content. However, a quartering away bow shot on lion can be placed by bisecting the angle formed by the front feet into a position one third of the way up from the bottom of the brisket to the top of the hump on the back

Lioness hunting package South Africa

Lioness hunting package South Africa with Hunting in Africa Safaris

Lioness hunting is by no means easier or safer than hunting lions. A lioness is temperamental at best and can decide to charge unprovoked. Together with Cape buffalo cow and the African elephant cow, the threesome is commonly known as the bitches of the bushveld. In better words we prefer to refer to them as the bad ladies of the bushveld.

Lioness hunting is done precisely in the same manner as for hunting lions. They can be baited or their tracks can be followed till reaching them. Either way the hunter is sure to feel the same adrenalin rush and sweat when hunting lioness on fair ground.

Cape buffalo cow hunting package

Cape buffalo Cow hunting package with Hunting in Africa Safaris

Hunting Cape buffalo cow is by no means any different to hunting a Cape buffalo. On the contrary, with young calves in a herd both hunter and Professional Hunter need to be alert. This is a guided hunt for African dangerous game and according to law the Professional Hunter needs a dangerous game hunting license.

Commonly referred to as one of the bitches of the bushveld (we tend to call them bad ladies in public) they tend to act according to their nicknames. Known to have charged many a hunter unprovoked a hunter must have enough gun to stop a Cape buffalo charge, even if a cow is hunted. Cape buffalo cows are equally as dangerous as Cape buffalo bulls.

Hunting in Africa Safaris offer affordable Cape buffalo cow hunting packages that will enhance the feeling of being in danger while we ensure your and our safety. The Cape buffalo cow hunting prices are what you see. We do not charge you more because we take you to the best place to hunt Cape buffalo. We merely charge you the cost of the Cape buffalo hunting safari as advertised. Once you are picked up at the airport we will take care of you till we drop you off again at the end of your African Cape buffalo hunting safari.

Minimum caliber for Cape buffalo – it is law to use a minimum 375 caliber when hunting Cape buffalo. The best caliber for Cape buffalo would be the largest caliber bigger than 375 you feel comfortable handling. We suggest any 400 caliber and bigger.

  • 1 X 1 hunt – a hunter is guided by his own dedicated PH. Also known as one-on-one. The daily rate for a 1 X 1 hunt in South Africa for plains game is $ 390-00 per day (2013) for the hunter, excluding any daily rates for companions or trophy fees.
  • 2X1 – two hunters share the services of a PH between them. Also known as two-on-one. The daily rate for a 2X1 hunt in South Africa for plains game is $ 320-00 per day (2013) per hunter, excluding any daily rates for companions or trophy fees.
  • The daily rates of non-hunting companions on a plains game hunt in South Africa are calculated at $ 180-00 per non-hunting companion per day depending on the level of comfort required.

 

Advantages of a 1 X 1 (one-on-one) hunt

  • you have the full attention of your dedicated PH
  • in the event that your hunting partner wounds an animal that needs to be tracked, you loose hunting time on your side. On a 1X1 hunt you do not loose hunting time because of someone else’s bad shot

 

Advantages of a 2 X 1 (two-on-one) hunt

  • hunting is slightly cheaper per person because you are sharing the services of a PH
  • you get to share experiences with your hunting partner
