The Bushmen Safaris reserve has been exclusively archery only since 1986. We are owned, operated, and set up for the bow hunter. Great genetics and low hunting pressure have resulted in a high number of record-breaking hunts at Bushmen Safaris!

"I’ll tell you what it is! It’s the best experience in quality animals, meals, and people one could ever come to expect on an African Safari. Step back to a time when your PH treats you as a friend and a hunter rather than simply “the client.” When searching for the right outfit for my African Safari, I researched for two years and concluded that Bushmen was the choice for me. One thing is for certain in hunting, you get what the hunt brings you! On my Safari with Bushmen, the hunt brought me 10 beautiful animals, the buffet of the finest meals and a wealth of new friends. If you’re on the fence of a choice of safaris, look no further! Seriously, look no further! You will not be disappointed."

“I have to say, my hunt at Bushmen Safaris is the best hunt I have ever been on. I was able to get every animal that I wanted on the hunt. The staff at Bushmen Safaris was wonderful and made me feel like family. This hunt is definitely a must do for the hunter that loves to bow hunt. Also, my wife accompanied me on the trip and is not a hunter but had an awesome trip. The staff made her feel very welcomed.”
- Steve Evans
“The room accommodations were perfect the bed slept great, the showers were great, there was plenty of hot water and pressure, and the breakfast, lunch & dinner was awesome. The facilities were very nice & clean and kept up, the staff was very friendly, in the bush we saw lots of animals and the trackers were very nice and friendly which made me feel like I was part of the hunting team. I enjoyed riding with the staff to go track and view the property which was very beautiful. Best vacation I have ever been on.”
- Tracy Evans, Non-Hunter
“I'm 82 years old, this is my 19th time in Africa, and this was my 132nd African animal. I've never in the 19 times that I've been to Africa seen or experienced a place like that. The blind are exceptional, and the hunting conditions are perfect. Overall this is the place to be if you want to experience an African Bow Hunting adventure of note.”
- Bill C.
“The time has come to return to the real world. Can't say enough about Bushmen Safaris. Rina, Johan, Gert and Francois are the greatest!! Them and the staff took such great care of us. Just like family. The food and accommodations are fantastic. The hunting is phenomenal, so many animals to watch and enjoy. Can't say enough about this place! Just an all-around amazing experience! Thanks so very much!“
- Dave
“Bushmen Safaris was well worth the 5-year wait. I loved my time here and can’t wait to go back. Everything from the welcome to the hunting experience was well thought out. The lodge, food, and ranch are top-notch, and the animals are so well managed. It was honestly an experience of a lifetime. The PH’s are incredible and got me every opportunity to fill my dream list. I’m super happy with my animals. I can’t speak highly enough of this place. We’re already planning our next trip with them.“
- Jocelyn A.
“This was my first hunting trip to Africa. Like many, I had grown up reading about the plains game and hunting in Africa but was not sure how that would work for a bow hunter. My friend found Bushmen's and after meeting them at shows and conversing online we decided to hunt with them. I have been on several hunts, many of which claim they cater to bow hunters, but this was one of the very few where that rings true. The water holes and blinds are setup perfectly for archers. The shots are reasonable, and you can see the animals as they approach. There is plenty of room to move without being seen, and ample room to draw and make a good shot. A bow hunters paradise. The other factor is opportunities. The animals in the ranch are plentiful and we saw animals every day we were there throughout the day and of many different varieties. The animals are free to range over the ranch, but there are many opportunities to shoot every day. The last factor is the staff. They embody the professional in PH. They walk you through judging the animals and shot placement, which is key for African game. They want you to be successful work hard every day to give you opportunities. After the shot they have an expert tracker find your animal. I am still in awe at their ability to track game through the brush. I cannot recommend Bushmen's strongly enough for anyone considering an African bow hunt. The facilities, opportunities, and staff will not disappoint!“
- Jimmy & Erin
“Thank you, Johan and Rina, as well as Gert, Francois, JP and all the staff for an incredible experience for the Hunter and non-Hunter! The property, accommodation, food, variety of animals to hunt and observe, were all amazing! I was so thrilled to see giraffes almost daily! As the spouse of the Hunter, I was a bit nervous about how I would spend my days, but it turned out to be the perfect amount of relaxation with random days of activity and always animals around at the lodge waterhole. The rides around the bush to join Steve for a photo shoot were the best (and the day at the spa was special too)! It's been like hanging out with family!“
- Christie
“The Bushmen experience is second to none. I've hunted all over the world and this has been my favorite hunting trip to date. Dani was excellent in organizing the pre-trip details until Rina and her team executed on everything upon arrival. Johan and Gert are exceptional in the filed making sure of a successful hunt. Bushmen will be an annual trip for me.“
- Justin
“My experience at Bushmen Safaris was simply amazing. The staff was more than friendly and ran like a well-oiled machine. Rina, Johan, and Gert were extremely knowledgeable and helpful with any questions I had. The accommodation was 5 star and the home cooked meals wanted to make you not put your fork down. There was lots of game and plenty of mature animals to hunt. The blinds that they have for you are top-notch as well. The fact that they only allow one hunt per month April-October and small groups make the animals never overhunted. If you are looking to hunt in Africa go hunt with Bushmen safaris you will not be disappointed.“

“Great experience! 10 out of 10!”

“This outfitter, Bushmen Safaris, is top-notch. They paid attention to detail from the time they picked us up at the airport until the time they dropped us off. They treat each other as family, and with respect, and they treat their clients just the same. The food and hunting are fantastic, as well as the atmosphere and accommodations. Not only do they take care of the hunters, but they also take care of those on the trip that don't hunt. They genuinely care and make an investment in their clients. They've definitely made an impact on our lives“
- Dawn & Randy
“The food was terrific, professional organization, well managed place, plenty of animals, and being here with family was great. Family atmosphere always.”
- Ray Culey
“I have had the privilege of hunting Bushmen's Safaris Ranch a number of times over these past 24 years. It's been an incredible, ethical "bow hunting only" region that has provided both me and my family with wonderful memories and experiences! One will see more numbers of wild game on this 22 thousand acre facility than any other I've been to! The amenities and the warm family hospitality is unparalleled in my global traveling experiences. I give Bushmen Safaris my highest recommendation! All the FOOD is Amazing!!!! You and anyone you take will have "The Time Of Your Lives" there.”
- Cary S.
“My number one priority, when booking with an outfitter is, “how is the hunting?”, and let me tell you that the hunting at Bushmen's is fantastic. I want to get up early, hunt the whole day, and that is exactly what I got. I am not overly concerned about the food or the lodging, but both were excellent. The blinds are spacious and well thought out, with most of the yardage in the 20-25 range, and it was great seeing all the different animals at every blind. Hunting only 10 days a month really gives the animals time to relax coming into the waterholes. The sheer number of animals was crazy good! I left a few off my list so I could go back. The past reviews that state, “you come as a client, and leave as family”, are true. Gert, Johan, Francois, Rina, Keystone, Chili, and the rest of the staff are so professional, helpful, nice, and so knowledgeable about all the animals it really makes you want to never leave.“
- Steve

“Bushmen Safaris is top notch! This place is a diamond in the rough. The accommodations and service were excellent. The staff is well organized and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best it can be.

“Bushmen is at the pinnacle of of any bow hunter's career. I harvested 10 trophy animals in 10 days with 10 arrows!! It's the trip of a lifetime....and then some.”
- Robert L.
“I hunted June 2015 at Bushmen. The number and quality of the animals is exceptional. I liked that the various species are comingled throughout the property so that I had various species coming to the water every day throughout the day. In addition to the trophies taken, I had ample opportunity to get lots of video. The permanent structure blinds are roomy and very comfortable. This was my second trip to Bushmen.”
- Robert M.
"Amazing! As a novice hunter with no plains game experience I was nervous about checking off this “bucket-list” dream. To my delight, the professional hunters and their guides were incredible – I never felt intimidated or out of my comfort zone. More importantly, my bow hunt was a complete success!!!"
- Mike R.
"Once you decide to hunt South Africa with a bow, the decision to hunt with Bushmen Safaris is an easy one. They are simply the best. If you want an experience that transcends hunting, one where you create lasting memories and friendships, choose Bushmen."
- Greg B.
“Our first trip to Africa to hunt at Bushmen Safaris-not truly knowing what to expect! Believe it when we say-our stay was phenomenal!!! From the greeting at the plane, until they dropped us back off at the airport! Management goes above and beyond to accommodate their clients, rooms were spacious, cleaned daily & very comfortable. Staff are always friendly/respectful -and meals were amazing!! (Dinner & lunches included game killed—there delicious!!). Each blind was top notch-with a variety of animals every day-no matter which one you were in! The Bushmen Safaris facility is exceptional, and we are leaving with their team now a part of our family!!“
