Incredible Hunting & 2 Beautiful Lodges

The species diversity at Bambisana is excellent!

This is a world class destination to hunt buffalo. Here the bulls tend to hang in small groups (2 to 3) and some prefer their own company. Buffalo are shy animals by nature and prefer to stay out of sight and out of mind. If there is thick vegetation on offer, this is where they will be. The plentiful water points mean they don’t have to travel much, making them challenging to find. Interestingly enough, buffalo have no trouble in rugged rocky terrain and enjoy living in mountainous country. This is why we have come across a number of bulls living secretive lives in the mountain range on Bambisana. As is the case everywhere we hunt buffalo, we do prefer to NOT hunt out of breeding herds and focus on pursuing bachelor groups or single bulls.

There are some huge Kudu at Bambisana too. You can bump into a monster Kudu at any moment anywhere on the reserve however they never come easy! They are not named “The Grey Ghosts” for nothing! Although not the rule, the Kudu rut normally takes place between April and the end of June but can start earlier or later depending on the condition of the cows – which is linked to rainfall. This is obviously a great time to hunt Kudu, but the brush is thicker at this time. Quite frankly, a big Kudu can be taken at any time of the year in Bambisana. Late season has less cover, and the game may be moving more because food is harder to find which means the bulls may need to travel more.

Hunting here is not a walk in the park. It is not a shooting gallery! Hunters coming to Bambisana must be prepared to work for their animals, sometimes having to put in several stalks on a species before being successful. Don’t get me wrong, the hunting experience is awesome but it’s not just a case of “I like that one, I think I’ll take him”. It doesn’t work that way here. We are also properly set up to offer bow hunters a hunting experience second to none. Several waterholes are equipped with properly set up bow blinds positioned within bow shooting distances. If there are bow hunters out there dreaming of a quality experience and a fair crack at some good trophy animals, this is the place for you! Birdshooting is also on offer!
