­­­­­­Hunting experience at Matlabas Safaris: At Matlabas Safaris Limpopo farm you can hunt up to twenty two species of wild game. We also have a North-West province concession that offers species that are not available in the Limpopo province. During bushveld safaris typical shooting distances vary between 80 and 200 meters (260 to 650 Feet). Depending on the species being hunted any rifle from a 30-06, 308 and bigger may be used. For hunting larger species such as Buffalo a .375 or bigger is required for safety, we recommend something that can pack at least 500 grains of lead. We recommend the use of a 4x32mm telescope or bigger. During the hunt you will at all times be accompanied by a Professional Hunter and a tracker, who’s focus is making your hunt pleasant, interesting and safe. Their knowledge of the bush and animal behavior will prove invaluable as you stalk your target. Our Bowhunting blinds are strategically placed for maximum opportunity for an average shooting distance between 10 to 25 meters (35 to 82 feet). Our permanent blinds are spacious and well camouflaged with slots and spotting holes specifically suited for bow hunting. A professional hunter will at all times accompany you while in the blind. We also conduct bow hunting by traditional walk and stalk methods.Click here for quick link country guide.
