    Well Aziz, you can hunt more than one place easily.
    There are lots of farms within easy driving distance of JHB. 3 hours or less.

    Bow hunting might be interesting in October. Spring time.
    It will be pretty though.

    Bird hunting in spring time?
    Not sure there will be much availability there.
    Much better opportunities in the fall and winter.

    Good luck.

    Welcome to AH Aziz,

    You don't mention which country you're from but I suspect you may run into problems taking meat back home as most countries do not allow the import of meat products. Also; most Outfitters I know of keep the meat of trophy animals hunted and their prices are structured accordingly. I'm sure you'll find one who will accommodate you in this regard but I suggest that you first check on the rules pertaining to the import of meat products into your country.

    I can echo what Brickburn said about bow hunting in October. Chances are good that it will rain at this time of year which will negatively impact on the success rate with bow and arrow. And you will be out of season for game birds in October too.

    Best,

    Hi BRICKBURN

    thank you for your reply
    do you advise me to go to any other region in south africa by car which will combine both the hunting and site seeing, or to go to suggested places.

    If you only have two weeks you are best to concentrate your efforts on a general area.
    There are a huge variety of ecosystems in RSA.
    Depends what you want to see???

    Many outfitters have numerous concessions to hunt (or big enough places to get lost on).

    Most tourists love the Garden route.. Lots of hunting in the Eastern and Western Cape.
    Leave from Cape Town or Port Elizabeth

    You can get to Kruger from Joburg.
    It will take up a day to get there. (basically)


    Within a four hour drive of Joburg are huge areas within 6 provinces
    (Many of the outfitters on AH have concessions within this range):
    Gauteng, Northern Province, Mpumalanga, Free State, Kwazulu Natal, Limpopo.


    Good luck.

    Hunted Africa...are there other continents to hunt?

    Aziz,

    Ive got a couple outfitters that I'm sure would love to host you for a bowhunt in October. I myself will be over there October 1-10. Depending on how late into october you go, it might rain but the earlier portion should still be dry...really dry....great for bowhunting!

    PM me if you are interested in a bowhunt. One outfitter is only an hour from the airport and caters to bowhunting only.
    Tom
