Many bowhunters dream of bowhunting in exotic locations such as Africa. At Bushmen Safaris, we are ready to help turn your dream into a reality.
One of big misconceptions about hunting in Africa is the cost. Many believe that the time, expense, and resources necessary to take that trip to the Dark Continent is not within their reach. But booking hunting trip to Africa might be more attainable and affordable than you think.
When you consider the number of animals you can realistically harvest on the hunt, coupled with the incredible experience of visiting Africa, a plains-game package is actually one of bowhunting’s best values.
Ranging around $7,000, a plains-game package can give you the opportunity to hunt multiple animals for less than the cost of some guaranteed-tag, private-land elk hunt in the U.S. Over the course of your stay, it’s possible to pursue five to seven animals — think kudu, impala, zebra, gemsbok, blesbok, springbok, warthog and wildebeest. Plus, additional animals can be added to most packages on an a la carte basis. So, if another species shows up within bow range, you can take advantage of the opportunity for the cost of a simple trophy fee.
