When it comes to hunting wildlife in South Africa, bow hunting is considered to be the most satisfying method of all. It takes true hunting skills, preparation and patience to ensure the reward of that precious trophy animal you ultimately longed for. All our blinds are in an outstanding condition, exclusively set aside with Bow Hunting in mind. Animals would generally move into these areas more often, due to the ‘low-human factor'.
As experienced hunters, we have learned that bow hunting can be very time consuming, compared to hunting with a rifle. Adequate positioning of the animal and the hunter need to be put into place at close range with many environmental factors playing against you. We use a combination of traditional and modern methods to determine the best areas of some of the target species beforehand, in order to provide our clients with multiple opportunities.
At African Frontier Safaris we consider clients to be our friends and understand that many questions arise whilst planning your Safari. Whether it relates to the hunt, like shot placement for example or just what to pack for the trip. We are dedicated to guiding our friends on the right path and therefore encourage you to interact with us for peace of mind.
Hunting Season and Climate
Hunting takes place year-round in the South African Republic. Of course, consideration should be given to the reversed seasons in the Southern Hemisphere. February-April the vegetation is lush, as the raining season comes to an end. The daily temperatures are moderate to high, ranging from 28-40 degrees Celsius (82-104° F) In June and July, it is mid-winter. The daily temperatures may be around 15-20 degrees Celsius (59-68° F) but a cold front is not uncommon during this time of year. At night it is cold with temperatures regularly below 0°C (32° F). During this period, there are hardly any leaves on trees and bush, which results in good visibility. The weather starts getting warmer again in mid-August. September is the official start of Spring, with moderate daily temperatures, but still cool in the evenings. At the beginning of October, the heat starts raising again, until January, which is mid-summer.
