This is a fabulous destination to hunt a Cape buffalo cow on a 70,000-acre hunting concession in Northern Limpopo. This is your chance to hunt two old buffalo cows at an affordable price. With a massive property including 22 well-built bow hunting blinds, this is a hunting destination that should not be missed.

THIS IS NOT A PUT AN TAKE AREA! All animals are born here and live their lives here!

 

The Buffalo Cow Hunting Area

This massive 70,000-acre hunting concession in Northern Limpopo is located near the town of Tolwe. The terrain is relatively flat but features thick bushveld typical of northern Limpopo.

This is one of the largest hunting concessions in this part of South Africa.

There are thousands of animals on this concession and with this type of surface area, it is unlikely that you will hunt the same area twice. There are over 20 waterholes, so the property has the water resources to support thousands of animals. And they are here! I saw 400-800 animals each day and had constant action at the blind even on the full moon in March.

 

 Cape Buffalo Cow Hunting

A typical day hunting Cape buffalo cows will begin with a good breakfast and driving on dirt roads looking for fresh tracks. The tracks on the roads are a better indicator if the tracks are fresh or not than those found at the waterholes. Once fresh tracks are found, the skilled tracker will be utilized to begin following the tracks until you catch up with the buffalo and are able to assess their size. You will be looking for older cows that are past their breeding prime. The oldest buffalo are usually the smartest buffalo, so you will need to be at the top of your game! Buffalo cows may also be hunted from a blind overlooking a waterhole for those with difficulty walking.

You should be in good shape for this hunt, as it is likely to involve a significant amount of walking!

Other animals are available after your Cape buffalo cows are in the salt. See the following price list for additionally available animals:

BOW BLINDS

This property features a good mix of elevated and permanent bow blinds strategically situated on waterholes. The waterholes feature salt licks. No feeding is done unless there is a drought, as enough animals are present that feeding is unnecessary.

BEST SEASONS TO SPOT AND STALK CAPE BUFFALO COWS

The outfitter advises October - March when the bush is green and thick for better concealment. But those months are hot. You need to be able to handle the heat in the warmer months.

Recommended and Minimum Rifle Requirements for Buffalo Cow Hunting

A minimum caliber of 375 is required for this hunt.

As with most buffalo hunting, shot placement is critical.

The 4-Star Tented Buffalo Camp

The camp consists of a centrally located main lodge building situated on the top of a hill with a commanding view of the surrounding bushveld. The camp features 4 luxury large tents with en-suite bathrooms and showers. All of the windows are screened for ventilation and feature two large beds. The units feature infrared gas heaters for cold nights and individual gas-operated hot water heaters. It is hard to tell you are in a tent. The tents are covered with two separate rain flys for ventilation and to keep the sun off of the tents.

Tented Camp BedroomTented Camp Tent and canopied Deck

The tents are separated well away from the other client tents for privacy and each tent is built on a large wooden deck with a railing and comfortable outdoor seating.

There is also a 5th permanent chalet that features two beds.

The maximum number of hunters and observers at this camp is 10.

GETTING THERE

Most clients will arrive in Johannesburg and overnight at the AfricaSky Boutique Hotel. If your flight arrives in the morning, the outfitter can pick you up and drive straight to camp. But if you are arriving in the afternoon or early evening, I recommend that you stay overnight and drive to camp the next morning after breakfast. It is about a 4-hour drive. That way you get 2 nights of good rest before beginning your dangerous game hunt.

 

This is the place to hunt if you want to hunt a Cape buffalo cow in South Africa. The outfitter has the place, the animals, and the experience to make your Cape buffalo cow hunt successful.
