    That completely depends on your wishes and how you would prefer to bow hunt. Hunting from hides over water, food sources, or mineral licks is the preferred method for most bow hunters visiting Africa for the first time simply because this method offers the hunter the most shot opportunity at the most different species in a relatively short time span. That said, you are welcome to hunt spot & stalk exclusively if that is your preference. We encourage our bow hunters to get out of the hides and stalk as much as possible when conditions dictate.

    As a western bow hunter you are obviously aware of the additional challenges spot & stalking demands. You will be much more limited in your shot opportunities stalking versus hunting from the hides, stands, and blinds. As long as you are realistic about shot opportunity and up for the challenge, we will stalk as much as you prefer. There are also certain species that are much more conducive to be hunted spot & stalk. Your PH can advise accordingly with respect to those that are easier than others to stalk.

    As far as what you will see hunting from the hides? Likely a steady parade of multiple species all taking their turns to come in a drink or have a lick of salt. It is not uncommon to see a dozen or more species in a half day session in a hide, not including birds, rodents, reptiles, varmints, and small predators. It is rare to have more than 5-10 minutes go by without a new critter coming in to see whats going on at the water hole...

    Yeah it’s great country and people. Thanks on the ram took me 17 years to draw the tag. Spent 30 days in the hills before I took this ram. Tried bowhunting for 2 weeks unsuccessfully before I got serious and got the rifle out :)
