Central African Savanna Buffalo are a water-dependent species so the starting point of most Buffalo hunts is from either a watering point, mud wallow or mineral lick. First, the trackers will search for fresh spoor before taking off after the Buffalo. During the dry season, you may be in for a long walk before making contact with the herd or some dagga boys. In the wet forest areas, walking distance may be shorter but the tracking process can take a little longer before you catch up to your quarry.

Why hunt Central African Savanna Buffalo?

A walk and stalk Buffalo hunt must be one of the most satisfying hunts when the challenge of the hunt all comes together. Besides the adrenaline rush that goes with this hunt, it is amazing to watch the trackers at work. No matter the size of the Buffalo, they all come with an attitude. Shot placement is paramount for a successful hunt otherwise you could become the hunted when following a wounded Buffalo. Many hunters have been ambushed during these follow-up operations. They also make great shoulder mounts that will bring back many safari memories.
