Our hunting safari in South Africa will be tailored to your needs. You’ll hunt with a top notch PH, stay in a 5-Star lodge, and enjoy exceptional trophy quality on a huge ranch. The average concession is huge with miles of mountainous terrain, interspersed with valleys and river bottoms, you will be amazed at the number of plains game animals you see. You will be hunting high trophy quality animals. South Africa has over 30 huntable species, including the dangerous 7.

We offer both rifle and bow hunting on this hunting safari in South Africa.

A truly amazing place to hone your bowhunting skills. Bow hunting is mostly done over a waterhole and the shooting distance varies between 25 to 30 yards. Weather permitting, there is always the option to try spot and stalk bow hunting. It is always rewarding when you manage to harvest one of these wary animals on foot. When rifle hunting the day begins by driving around in search of game or alternatively fresh tracks, once the game is spotted the final approach is done on foot.

The best time to hunt is debatable.

The hunting season usually starts between March and November with June and July being the prime time. You will enjoy hunting the mild South African winters.

  1. SA Hunter

    Great Safari in South Africa, taking a nice cape buffalo, sable, nyala, zebra and blesbuck.

  2. Tom W.

    I have no words to describe my plains game safari in South Africa, and the unbelievable top notch quality of my African mounts.

  3. Gloria Gott

    I’d encourage you if you’re on the fence to take that leap of faith and go to Africa! You’ll fall in love with it.

  4. Shawn McDonald

    I trust Outdoors International’s opinion and will definitely book another hunt with Outdoors International. This was an amazing safari!

  5. Robert Gillow

    It was a Great learning experience for both of us, as I was one of the first Traditional bowhunters they had at camp. They were extremely interested in my equipment (from my longbow to my stone arrowheads) and how to set up hunts for future Traditional bowhunters. WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING!

  6. Dason Lasater

    This is my first guided hunt, but Botes was amazing. He was able to keep me encouraged and motivated, and he suggested I hold out for true trophies. I would rate him an 11 on a scale from 1-10.

  7. Brye Mangum

    Thank you to all the PHs and staff. I made some new friends and will be back to see them 100%.

  8. Brad Pouliot

    It was the most exciting hunting any one can imagine. Hunted day and night. The entire staff did everything they could to make the adventure a success. Can’t say enough about our PH, De Wet. He worked his butt off so that we could harvest all the animals we wanted. Even hunted with a bow. I would recommend Outdoors International and De Wet for sure.

  9. Jose Marin

    We had a great hunt in different concessions in South Africa for cape buffalo, kudu, zebra, blesbuck, impala, blue wildebeest, duiker and bushbuck.  The outfitter knows his business!

  10. Scott McCall

    My hunting trip to South Africa was amazing. I was treated with great hospitality, and saw animals every day. The hunting was great.

  11. Justin Harkins

    I went to South Africa with my friend Mark Pearson. Our Safari in South Africa was an amazing trip. De Wet and his guys were absolute professional. I feel went way above and beyond to make sure that we got all the animals we were after.

  12. Chris Matson

    It was a 12 out of 10 experience! Incredible time!

  13. Thomas M. Driskill Jr. COL USA (Ret)

    This was our fourth time hunting in Africa, and they not only beat the pants off all of our other hunts, but exceeded our grandest expectations. We have a ton of specific stories of individual hunts and tracking, but you’ll have to experience it yourself to understand that. Please plan on a nice gratuity for all, because they deserve it and that’s part of hunting in Africa.
