Welcome to the site. I went on my first bowhunting safari to South Africa last July. I had the time of my life. You have definitely come to the right place to do some research. Let me know if you have any questions.
Here is a link to my hunt report: ndbwhnter is back from South Africa
Hope you have a great time and I can't wait to hear your stories and see come pictures.

Welcome to the forum,
First thing to do is decide fence or no fence. And if fenced how big? Some propertys are 5,000 acers or less, some are over 100,000.
Second: whats more important? Big trpohys or sweeping vistas. Example in general the limpopo brush country has big horns but is flat and brushy like texas. Not much to see. On the other hand places like the Eastern Cape and Namabia have facinating scenery.
Another thing to consider is the kind of experince you are looking for. RSA is very modern with a high population, cell phones work pretty much everywhere. Not the wild africa you have read about all these years. Parts of Namibia are vast desert scrub with a very low population.
The possibilitys are many, do alot of reasearch !!!
Heres 3 outfitters to give you an idea of the differences:
Infinito safaris: eastern cape
Dries visser safaris: Limpopo
Allen chillers namibia (no fence)I have walked in the tracks of the elephant, heard the lion roar and met the buffalo on his terms. I shall never be the same.

Welcome fellow bowhunter.
I am a very experienced North America bowhunter, but like you I am also planning my first bowhunt in Africa. Everyone is so helpful on AH. They are not only willing to share a wealth of info, but very sincere about helping with any questions. Ask away. Don't forget to click on the "shot placement gallery" It's a great resource so you can learn shot placement on African game.When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.
