There are numerous great places to hunt, but in the hearts and minds of many bow hunters, there is only one ultimate hunting destination: South Africa. Hunters from all over the world visit the country occupying the southernmost part of the African continent to experience the paramount hunting safari. The number of species that one is allowed to hunt in South Africa is unmatched anywhere else in the world. The key species to hunt are the big 5 - the buffalo, lion, leopard, rhino and elephant - and the plains games species include animals unique to southern Africa such as the kudu, springbok, warthog, black wildebeest, blesbok, waterbuck, blue wildebeest, and bushbuck. Hunting in South Africa is possible all year round, but as a result of the summer heat and rain, the best and most popular period is from April to September.
