Know Before You Go: Setting Up For Success
By: Bushmen Safaris

Here are some additional details about the Bushmen Safaris facilities to help you get ready for your trip to our wildlife conservancy in South Africa.

Archery Only
As an owner-operated outfitter, Bushmen Safaris is set up for the archer. In 1986, we developed an "archery only" hunting conservancy with restricted hunting pressure to ensure greater hunting success.

Dark of the Moon
Bushmen Safaris commissions one hunt per month, occurring around the premium "dark of the moon" cycle. Compared to hunts occurring during the full moon phase, this has shown a proven increase in the age of trophies taken providing increased hunter success.

Wildlife Habitat Only
All cattle, cross fencing and concrete watering were removed in 1986, allowing for a "wildlife-only" habitat. This all-natural setting assures excellent genetics and higher-quality trophies.

SCI Record Book
Bushmen Safari Hunters have taken 12 World Records, 63 Top 5 placings, 115 Top 10 placings, and 335 Top 25 placings, which is more than any other outfitter in the world. Bushmen's hunters continue to take high-scoring trophies as a result of limited hunting pressure.

Return Hunter
Bushmen Safaris has an 80% record for return hunters, which goes to show that our high-quality experience is worth a return visit! Our hunts produce an exceptional number of shot opportunities, high-scoring trophies, ideal habitat, optimal blinds, and a high-success rate.

Bushmen Safari’s blinds have been developed to improve our hunter’s success. Sixteen hides both elevated and ground are located on natural watering holes; they are four-sided and complete with roofing to restrict scent and allow for hunter movement. Each blind has two openings—one for the bow-hunter and one for a video camera. Our large variety of hides reduce pressure and allow hunters to enjoy a variety of hunt areas throughout their experience.

USA Staff
Bushmen Safaris has a full-time management team in the United States. Each and every question or concern you may have prior to your hunt will be handled by experienced hunters. After your hunt, we will help you follow-up on shipments from the RSA, making sure that your fees and care are appropriate.

Bushmen Safaris offers superior on-site accommodations, once-in-a-lifetime photo and video opportunities, and amazing park tours such as Kruger National Park and the Lion Park in Johannesburg. From wine tasting in and around Cape Town to relaxing around the pool at Bushmen, we offer a superior experience for the non-hunter.

A $2,500 deposit reserves your hunt and you pay the balance at the end of the hunt, guaranteeing that Bushmen Safaris accurately represents its hunts. Bushmen has a proven history, which allows us to provide low cost hunts without cost-cutting the quality of the hunt. Your deposits are safe with Bushmen Safaris.
