Hunting Eland in South Africa
By: Bushmen Safaris

South Africa has long been a special destination for bow hunters from around the world because of its abundance of species, quality infrastructure, and incredible accommodations.

One of the animals that brings scores and scores of hunters to Africa is the Eland, the world's largest and slowest antelope. The Eland also has the endurance to maintain a trot indefinitely and can jump an 8-foot fence from a standstill. Both males and females have horns that spiral tightly, though female horns tend to be longer and thinner. The Eland is the animal most often depicted in the early rock art of East Africa. Even today, it still holds an important place in the mythology of some southern African tribes.

When you come to Bushmen Safaris in search of an Eland to add to your trophy wall, you can be assured that the Bushmen Safaris has one of the best hunting concessions in South Africa. During your time here, you will be hunting one-on-one with experienced professional hunters that will help you identify the very best trophies, ensure your safety, and maximize your hunting opportunities.

Besides the Eland, the species taken at Bushmen Safaris include the Blesbok, Greater Kudu, Gemsbok, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Black Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Nyala, Waterbuck, Southern Bushbuck, Impala, Warthog, and Springbok. The average African hunting safari at Bushmen Safaris consists of 10 to 12 full hunting days, and during the evenings when you are re-living the day’s hunt, the spirit of Africa will embrace you and give you an experience you will always treasure making you realize why Bushmen Safaris is South Africa’s bow hunting expert.
