    Buffalo hunt special:

    We reserve a small part of our buffalo quota in Bwabwata National Park for our elephant hunt clients every year, but it so happens that this year most of the elephant hunters do not want to add a buffalo, which left us with a couple of buffalo left to sell.

    These hunts normally sell at US$ 27 500 for a 10-day hunt, all inclusive, but will be available for a limited time at US$ 22 000 for an all-inclusive 7-day hunt, or for US$ 21 000 for a 2x2 hunt. The hunts will be guided by either myself, or Fred Bezuidenhout. A 50% deposit secures hunt, and the rest payable in transfer, cash or credit card at the end of the hunt. This price is comparable to a 7-day conservancy buffalo hunt, but on one of the very best areas inside a National park, so they should not last long.

    Our hunting area, Bwabwata National Park East, holds exceptional buffalo, and may be one of the only places in Southern Africa open to hunting where you can be really picky about what kind of bull you want to shoot. In fact, we on average see more than 10 shootable bulls per day when hunting buffalo. We have seen dagga boy groups of as many as 27 in a herd, all post 10-year-old bulls!

    Personally, I prefer to hunt the really old ones, even so, our average over the last 2 seasons have been in the low 40’s, but if a hunter wants to try for something spectacular, there are some real monster buffalo around. Realistically, we will be looking for a 42 inch- 12 year and older buffalo.

    [​IMG]


    As can be gathered from above, a reasonable fit hunter can shoot a buffalo virtually every day, but we tend to look over 40 to 50 bulls before we take a shot, so it is a lot of actual buffalo hunting before you pull the trigger. I am so confident that a hunter will feel like a kid in a candy store, that if we cannot show you 40-50 mature buffalo bulls, I will give your day fees back! (That is, if you are a fit, able bodied hunter, not a blind or handicapped person!)

    As the terrain consists mostly of woodland, it is a track and stalk hunt, or a spot and stalk hunt. It is totally different from most of the Caprivi hunts, in that we don’t hunt floodplains for buffalo, we hunt them in the 670 000 acres wooded area of the National Park. Our conservancy buffalo hunts are similar, but you have much less opportunities in the conservancies than in the park, one of the reasons the price is a bit higher.

    These hunts can be done from March to end November, with June to November the best time due to visibility. Accommodation will be in our camp on the Kwando river, with lots of elephant, hippo and red lechwe sightings right around camp. The camp has limited Wi-Fi, and all the creature comforts to make it suitable for wives as well. (Some of them may even be the main hunters!)

    Limited other game may also be available to add at trophy fees only. They include (while quota is available):

    Hippo (one left) $ 5000

    Spotted hyena (one left) $ 4000

    Eland $ 2500

    Kudu $ 1750

    Zebra (other nearby area) $ 1500

    Impala $ 700

    Warthog $ 400

    Steenbok/ duiker $ 250

    To add an observer for the full 7 hunting days and 2 travel days, add US$ 1575.

    To add a cameraman to film your hunt, add US$ 2500 for the full period, including editing.


    Pick up and drop off point is either Katima Mulilo (Mpacha airport has 4 flights a week coming in from Windhoek), or Kasane (Botswana, which is serviced daily from Johannesburg). If a hunter comes via Kasane, we will need his gun paperwork no later than 7 days before he/ she arrives. If a hunter wants to borrow one of our guns, we will have the following available:

    .375 H&H CZ550 with synthetic stock and 1.5-6x 43 Schmidt und Bender on.

    .416 Rem mag Mod 70 Winchester with 1-4x24 Swarovski

    .404 Jeff (Mauser M98) open sights

    .450 Rigby (M98 Magnum) with open sights

    .500 NE Verney Carron with a Doctor Optic red dot or open sights

    (All available free of charge provided that if you break it you buy it…)

    If I left out any details, or if you would like to discuss anything more about this option, please contact myself (Karl Stumpfe) on karl@huntingsafaris.net or Colleen on admin@huntingsafaris.net .

    Oh the Caprivi Strip! One of my dream hunting locations! I think that’s a pretty good deal for the location.
    Those are some nice raggedy old buff!
    Good luck on selling this!

    Johnnyblues, that is 100% your choice. Just remember that as in all things in life, what you pay is what you get... We can also offer cheap buffalo hunts (and by cheap I mean below 10k), but choose not to as I have worked too hard to build up a name of a quality outfit.

    Caprivi is a great and unique place. Lots of Buffalo there. I took mine from a herd of 500! I’d love to hunt with Fred someday. He was managing the camp while I was in Caprivi. Lots of good campfire stories from him!

    I have to agree with you @Philip Glass, Fred is a great person... He is a superb Professional Hunter and he has a wealth of knowledge! One of Namibia's best.
