hunting-south-africaBow hunting is conducted throughout the year and is available for all plains game species on our price list. Please be sure to book well in advance at Arc Africa Hunting Safaris.
Different varieties of blinds are used in South Africa and include elevated blinds placed in strategic areas and ground blinds closer to watering holes.

hunting-south-africaTree blinds are placed strategically along game paths. Hunting on bow hunting concessions means that the animals are generally more relaxed but patience and skill is required to hunt your trophies successfully. It is recommended that your bow hunting safari be slightly longer than a typical rifle hunting safari.
