Hunting Season
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 Method
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.

Success Rate
One of the benefits of South Africa is that there is a 100% success rate.

Trophy Quality
