Bowhunting in Tanzania
Beginning in 2005, the government began issuing bowhunting permits. Tanzania may be the most expensive country in Africa today with day rates many times more than other sub sahran African countries. “The other reason it is more expensive there is that the Government license fees for bowhunting are 30% higher than that of the rifle schedule.” This country has tremendous opportunity but again few operators with the experience to conduct bowhunting. I have identified one where a bowhunter can’t go wrong.
The famous Selous Game reserve and Masailand are two wild areas that most African hunters dream about seeing. There may be no better place in Africa to pursue Cape buffalo and the big cats than the Selous, while Masailand holds the special East African species like the Gerenuk and the Lesser Kudu as well as the Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelles.
