Hunting Bushbuck In South Africa

About the Species

Bushbuck forms part of the Spiral Horned family and is the smallest of the family in South Africa. Males tend to be slightly redder than the dark brown of the southern species, but darker than the northern bushbuck. This species has keen senses and is very alert. Males are very aggressive and have been known to attack when wounded.

About the Hunt

Males make for extremely good trophies with thick black necks, shiny coats and very majestic horns. These are very impressive animals, which offer excellent walk & stalk hunting opportunities. The largest Limpopo bushbuck measured 54-3/8 inch, and was taken in South Africa in 2008.


Limpopo bushbuck range along the Limpopo River valleys in Botswana, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. However, it is known that one of the best places to hunt trophy Limpopo bushbuck in Africa are the north-eastern region of South Africa. The Limpopo bushbuck lives in a much drier area than its nearby cousins, and is seldom found far from water.
