Bow Hunting with Safari Njema
Bow hunting is one of the oldest methods of hunting in Africa, long before rifles were introduced. It’s very challenging but also very rewarding! The most commonly used bows today are the “long bow”, “re curve”, “compound” and “cross bow”. If Bow hunting is what gets your adrenalin pumping, then we are the company to hunt with.
We offer bow hunting for plains game as well as dangerous game. Our PH’s are experts in their field, with years of experience, hunting the vast plains of South Africa, the wild bush of Tanzania and the swamps of Mozambique and Botswana. We have a variety of areas in South Africa for bow hunting, each one very different from the other, with over 35 different species. The areas we use, cater exclusively for bow hunting, thus the animals are more relaxed when hunting them over a waterhole than they would be in an area where rifle hunting occurs.
The bow you use for hunting is very important if you want to achieve success. You have to be comfortable with your draw length and the poundage of your bow. The minimum poundage for plains game is 50lbs and for dangerous game we would suggest something bigger like 70-80lbs, preferably. We use pit blinds, ground blinds, tree stands as well as walking and stalking. Our blinds are mostly over waterholes with a distance of anything between 10-30yards.
Walking and stalking is one of the most challenging ways of bow hunting. It takes a lot of patience, camouflage and hard work, but when that magnificent trophy is lying on the ground after a successful stalk and a good shot, nothing will ever come close to that feeling again. Whether it is plains game or the Big 5 your after, let our Professional Hunters take you on the hunt of a lifetime.
