JKO Safaris provides exceptional bow hunting opportunities in Africa tailored to archers of all skill levels. It is crucial to understand that precision is paramount in every shot, making the following information instrumental in determining the species and methods suitable for bow hunting in Africa.

According to regulations, a compound bow with a minimum draw weight of 50lbs is permissible for plains game, but we strongly advocate for a bow ranging between 60-80lbs for optimal results. Dangerous game requires a compound bow with a minimum draw weight of 95lbs, a recommendation we too, agree with. Other bows permitted in South Africa include Long Bows and Re-Curve bows.

Preparation is key before departing for Africa, and JKO Safaris ensures your readiness by taking you to a range for skill assessment before the hunt. Our focus is not only on providing you with the best chance of success but also on the well-being of the animals, prohibiting any unnecessary or chance shots.

Concerning broadheads, you have the flexibility to use any type at your discretion, but fixed blades generally prove most effective across Africa. Given the toughness of African animals, optimal penetration to the vitals is crucial for success and ethical hunting practices.
