Bow Hunting in Africa

Bow hunting in Africa is one of the greatest adventures that the modern day bow hunter can experience.  Many African countries have legalized bow hunting and have rapidly growing bow hunting industries.  Most African countries allow plains game hunting with a bow.  There are at least three African countries that prohibit hunting dangerous game when bow hunting in Africa. Namibia currently does not allow dangerous game to be hunted with archery equipment.  Zambia also does not allow bow hunting for dangerous game and prohibits the use of crossbows altogether.  Tanzania does not allow dangerous game hunting with a bow.  Tanzania also doubles the license fees and area permits if a hunter uses a bow.

The number one destination for bow hunting in Africa has to be South Africa.  South Africa allows the use of archery equipment for both plains game and dangerous game hunting safaris.  Additionally, South Africa offers a wide array of huntable species that are located in a variety of terrains.  The game ranches of South Africa have welcomed bow hunters and several of these game ranches have converted to offer bow hunting only.  This lack of gunfire keeps the animal populations rather calm and aids in getting the bow hunter within shooting range of his quarry.

Namibia is also a popular destimation country for bow hunting in Africa.  Although Namibia does not allow crossbows or archery hunting for dangerous game, a sizeable amount of outfitters offering bow hunting have emerged.  Due to Namibia’s dry climate, hunting the waterholes can be a productive way to harvest a good bag of plains game.  Namibia requires that an outfitter that offers bow hunting be licensed and certified to provide this service.  Their facilities are inspected by government officials before they can begin conducting bow hunts.  Namibia is the only country where a cheeta may be taken with archery equipment.

Other countries such as Mozambique, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Cameroon offer excellent spot and stalk hunting for both regular and exotic plains game species when bow hunting Africa.  Bow hunting in Africa is truly an archer’s dream!


"I booked the hunt through John Martins, the owner of Discount African Hunts. It was a smooth transaction and he provided me with good and accurate information."

"This 10 day package safari was a fantastic experience. I learned many new hunting skills and made new friends.  I would go back and do it again in a heartbeat.  I'm going back. That says it all. Thanks to Discount African Hunts for setting me up on a fantastic plains game safari."

"Best advice I can give is don't let the word DISCOUNT scare you. I was skeptical but I have hunted all over and I can tell you these trips are top notch! Everything was described accurately, no surprises. I took 9 trophies - almost every one made gold medal. I would highly recommend John Martins and Discount African Hunts. I already have another trip booked with them and I am looking at 2 more. I got everything I wanted and saved thousands doing it!"
