Lindile Safaris offers you a Bow hunting experience of a lifetime! Bow hunting is probably the most exciting and challenging way to hunt. The type of bow most commonly hunted with by international clients is the Compound bow.
Although we also have clients coming with re-curve, longbows as well as crossbows. Ensure you have the correct bow set up for African game, we advise on fixed blades or tried and tested mechanical broadheads. Ensure you bring enough arrows and broadheads as they may break or get damaged when hunting.
Broadheads which work well are Rocky mountain titanium as well as the Muzzies with a weight of 125 grains.
Most of our blinds are custom built and located near water points and salt licks with a shooting distance of about 25 – 40 yards. Walk and stalk is also possible but can be extremely difficult and time-consuming as most of our animals move in big herds and because of the thick vegetation.
We also make use of pop-up blinds at game trails. The best time for bow hunting in South Africa is from May to September as most of the cover formed by the trees are gone this time of the year which makes spotting the animals much easier. This gives you time to study the animals and spot a good quality trophy.
When importing your bow to South Africa we recommend that you make use of a strong and good quality bow case to protect your bow. At the airport you will simply just collect your bow at the luggage carousel.
Please note that expandable broadheads are not legal to use in South Africa.
