There are two main categories of hunting we offer, namely rifle and bow hunting. 

Rifle Hunting

  • The 30-06 is the most popular according to statistics and manufacturuers
  • The .375 H&H and the .458 WIN are mostly used for big game hunting
  • The 7mm REM and .270 WIN are popular when hunting large plain’s game (long distance)
  • The .243 WIN, 223 REM and 222 REM are popular when hunting small plain’s game

Besides using a legal calibre for a specific specie, the best calibre remains the weapon which you hunt with the most and have the most confidence in.

Hunting is conducted throughout the year but the majority of hunts are conducted from April,  through into November. Please be sure to book well in advance at Arc Africa Hunting Safaris.
