This outfitter has a 100% success rate for this hunt!

This is the hunt in the high sawgrass that you see on TV.  Ivan Carter films many segments for his Carter’s War's TV show here.  Many other TV personalities film shows here each year.  This outfitter has created one of the greatest conservation success stories on the African continent  and you will hunt in an area that is filled with free-ranging game,

This free-range hunt for Cape Buffalo will take place In Mozambique on Coutada 11, which abuts the mighty Zambezi River.  This is the concession where you see Ivan Carter working closely with the outfitter’s anti-poaching teams on Carter’s Wars.  Dozens of TV programs have been filmed here and the story of the outfitter building the buffalo herd from a mere 600 to over 20,000 Cape buffalo make this one of the greatest conservation success stories on the modern African continent.

Using specialized swamp vehicles to access the wet areas in the high saw grass that the buffalo frequent is an experience that is as unique as it is wonderful.  Coutada 11 abounds with game and is truly a hunting nirvana. Although not an inexpensive hunt, the hunting experience here is as good as there is on the African continent.

The Free-Range Buffalo Bow Hunting Area

This outfitter has over 5,000 square kilometers of official hunting concessions in Mozambique. This hunt will take place in Coutada 11 which is situated on the mighty Zambezi River. There are 22 huntable species ranging from the diminutive suni to the mighty African elephant.

Buffalo roam the open flood plains and swamps in herds of several hundred.  There are over 20,000 buffalo on this concession. Sable roam in large herds of over 100. There are 4 distinct land types here consisting of sand forests, tropical savannah, swamps and floodplains.

The Cape Buffalo Bow Hunt

This is a traditional spot and stalk hunt.  With archery equipment you will stalk to within 35 yards of your trophy. A typical day starts at around 0300 hours.  It is about a 1.5-hour drive to where they stop the vehicles and transfer the gear to the amphibious tracked vehicles.  It is then about a 2-hour drive in the bivy (amphibious vehicle) to where the buffalo hunt will begin. You will look for the birds that follow the big herds that roan this concession. Once the birds are spotted you will begin your stalk on foot.

The area is swampy, so you will get wet and muddy. In the later season knee pads are recommended as the ground can get hard on the knees when crawling to get up close for a shot. Once you get to where you can visually inspect the herd for an old hard-boss bull, a plan will be made to stalk him. Bow hunters will typically crawl into position and wait for an opportunity. This style of hunting will give you several opportunities to take a shot at your buffalo. The outfitter has experienced a 100% success rate due to the large amounts of buffalo that are present in this area and the skill of your PH and trackers..

Once your buffalo is down they will quarter and cape the animal and then load him in the back of the bivy for transportation back to camp. This is an unbelievable opportunity to chase free-range Cape buffalo on one of the best buffalo hunting concessions in Africa. After your buffalo is in the salt, other plains game animals are available.

"I spent weeks visiting websites for outfitters in Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, comparing pre-made packages and regular fees. In the end, for a 7-day, six animal hunt with my son as an observer/hunter, John Martins had the best price."

"I had the hunting experience of a lifetime. And I have a real need to go back. I made many new friends from South Africa, Australia and the USA.

I strongly recommend both Discount African Hunts and this outfitter. John Martins set me up with a great outfitter, answered all my questions and made sure I had all my paperwork in order A to Z."

"This was my first trip to Africa and can positively say it will not be my only one. Words simply can not describe the events of the hunt.  I hunted with both longbow and compound and took a total of 12 animals.  I speak volumes to Discount  African Hunts. These guys know the ins and outs.  Thank you for my first Amazing African Adventure!"
