Hunter Comments -->>>

Just returned from our second trip to African Arrows. Our first trip wildly exceeded our expectations. . . and we showed a complete lack of self-discipline, shooting 8 animals, all of true trophy quality. It was evident that African Arrows is committed to the highest standard of trophy herd management.

Our second trip exceeded even the first. The trophy list this time was going to be much more difficult. And we were 100% successful, including a walk and stalk hunt that resulted in taking a 16.5" bush buck and a night sit that was successful on a bush pig.

Bottom line is if you want a true bow hunting experience in South Africa, there is no better outfitter. Period. In camp, it's like being there with your best hunting friends. Prices are very, very reasonable. Saw one post here about "hidden fees" not sure what that was all about, since any additional costs were tips and a voluntary conservation fee ($20 per animal), as far as I experienced. Service is beyond every expectation. Food amazing. Lodgings so good I want to live there.

The Nels and their entire staff are committed to making your trip the best it can possibly be.
