Buffalo Behavior

Buff on the floodplains are easy to get upon but if they make it to the scrub or see you coming they vanish fast. They can walk faster than us by a mile so if the guide says we need to get over there fast, be prepared to run as walking is too slow and you won't catch them. If the buff gets hit and makes it to the scrub you better be prepared that he will charge at you when you go in to get him. Bulls are basically the same in character.

In the event of a charge:

  • Hold your ground
  • Be ready and listen to your guide and your surroundings
  • Focus on the bullet impact point, make sure it hits the spine or brain box as chest shots are fairly ineffective
  • Remain calm and think spot, spot, spot, spot
  • Immobilise it

    How a hunt will be conducted for Buffalo

    We hunt on foot so you can expect to walk on uneven ground for half the day. Be prepared to be able to walk at least 6 km per day in hot dry conditions. Each animal is different and will require a different hunt style so being able to keep up with the guide will be very advantageous. A reasonable level of fitness is required to make the hunt enjoyable. We will try our best to get you everything on your trophy list but it is not always possible. The fitter you are and the more you listen to your guide the better your chances of having an enjoyable and successful hunt. Ultimately, we will tailor the hunt to your fitness ability but please understand that being fit, in these hot conditions, will help you to enjoy your hunt.
