With 50 years combined experience, the hunt is conducted under strict and responsible rules, and we pride ourselves in our high standards and hunting ethics.”
Cape buffalo hunting in South Africa is best between April and October as the weather is dryer and cooler. The visibility is also better this time of year.
Hunting will be done by tracking big bulls from water holes or spot-and-stalk. The safari vehicle will be used to locate tracks. Once a good track is found, you will leave the vehicle to track on foot.
Cape buffalo hunts are guided 1-on-1, plus trackers.
One of the benefits of South Africa is that there is a 100% success rate.
I have personally hunted with this team of PH’s and can’t recommend them highly enough. They have almost 50 years of combined full-time experience hunting dangerous game in the African bush and can give you the hunt of a lifetime.” -Shad Wheeler
Trophy quality is very good with high success rates on cape buffalo bulls averaging 38 inches. 44 inch bulls are possible and have been taken.

There’s not one bad thing I could say about this South Africa safari. The hunting was off the hook, with LOTS of game. The people were great, the PH’s were fun, friendly, and professional. The food was spectacular, as was the lodging. It was the trip of a lifetime for me and my son. Cory […]
I went from being on top of the world, to the pit of despair in about 1.5 seconds. Suddenly I could hear Botes’ (our PH) voice cutting through the fog of disbelief and utter horror, saying “nock another one, nock another one, you got this.” When I snapped out of it I realized the big […]
