It can be hard for a beginner to calculate a budget for an African hunting adventure. Some of the prices seem too good to be true, others may sound prohibitively expensive. Most outfitters list only “daily rates” and “trophy fees”, sometimes a “package tour”. There’s a long list of things that are “not included” in these costs, and some that are not even mentioned there (like air fare). What are the “other costs” and how much can the total price of the trip come down to?August 17, 2017 All said and done: What’s the bottom line for an average South African hunt?
When to hunt Black Faced Impala?
On game farms you can hunt Impala almost a year round, but in some places December and January may be too hot for comfortable hunting. The best time to hunt any species of Impala is May, when, during the rut, the biggest males fight for dominance.The rest of the African winter, June to September, is also a good time for a plains game hunt.
Hunting methods All hunting methods (5)
Impala inhabits shrub and savannah type habitat well suitable for spot-and-stalk hunt. This is the method preferred by trophy hunters, because after the animal is spotted, the hunter and the PH usually have the time to estimate the trophy quality and make the decision whether the hunter wants this particular animal or not. It’s best to hunt Impala in the morning or in the evening, when the diurnal antelopes are most active. Impala are social creatures, so when making a shot, take care not to hit more than one animal. Bowhunters may also try hunting the antelopes from ground blinds or elevated stands positioned over waterholes.

Impala is a graceful, beautiful creature, especially a big, mature buck with his long, lyre-shaped horns. These horns grow all over the creature’s lifetime, and make a spectacular trophy. With its delicious flesh, Impala pleases not only the eyes, but also the taste buds, and is a popular object not only for trophy, but for meat and biltong hunters, too. South African game farms made an invaluable contribution in preservation of many species, and they are financed only by hunter’s payments.
