Why Bushmen Safaris
At Bushmen Safaris, we know what it takes to provide a quality bow hunt. Your trip will be designed to provide the ultimate South African archery experience.
We offer a rare degree of exclusivity. Upon arrival you will be met at the airport and driven to the ranch. Hunting will commence the following day and continue until the final scheduled day in which you will return to the airport. It is the evenings, while sitting around the fire sipping your favorite drink that you will relive the day’s hunt and the spirit of Africa will embrace you and give you an experience you will always treasure.
Our Premium Bowhunting Package includes 10 hunt days and full service amenities. If you would like to add extra hunting days or rather, explore South Africa tourist opportunities, we can work with you to coordinate your entire trip to suit your needs.
In 1986, Bushmen Safaris developed an "archery only" hunting conservancy with restricted hunting pressure to ensure greater bow hunting success. As an owner-operated outfitter, Bushmen Safaris is set up for the archer.
DARK OF THE MOON
Bushmen Safaris schedules our hunts around the premium “dark of the moon” cycle. Compared to hunts occurring during the full moon phase, this has shown a proven increase in the age of trophies taken providing increased hunter success.
WILDLIFE ONLY HABITAT
All cattle, cross fencing and concrete watering were removed in 1986, allowing for a "wildlife-only" habitat. This all-natural setting assures excellent genetics and higher-quality trophies. Hunting is Bushmen’s number-one priority.
SCI RECORD BOOK
Bushmen Safari Hunters have taken 12 World Records, 63 Top 5 placings, 115 Top 10 placings, and 335 Top 25 placings. Bushmen's hunters continue to take high-scoring trophies as a result of limited hunting pressure. "Dark of the moon" hunting, superior genetics, and an excellent habitat without cattle all combine to help produce these trophies.
Bushmen Safaris has an 80% record for return bow hunters over the past 15 years, which just goes to show that our high-quality experience is worth a return visit! Our hunts produce an exceptional number of shot opportunities, high-scoring trophies, ideal habitat, optimal blinds, and a high-success rate. Our bow hunters come to the ranch as clients and leave as friends.
BLINDS / HIDES
Bushmen Safari’s blinds have been developed to improve our hunter’s success. Sixteen hides both elevated and ground are located on natural watering holes; they are four-sided and complete with roofing to restrict scent and allow for hunter movement. Each blind has two openings—one for the bow-hunter and one for a video camera. Our large variety of hides reduce pressure and allow hunters to enjoy a variety of hunt areas throughout their experience.
Bushmen Safaris has a full-time management team in the United States. You won’t have to deal with vastly different time zones or language barriers when making the arrangements for your South African Archery Hunting Adventure.
