Africa Hunt Lodge allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest Trophy and World Record Class South African Gemsbok. The Limpopo Province of South Africa is the premier destination in the World to hunt the Gemsbock. Year round, we offer hunts for awesome Trophy Gemsbok. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Gemsbuck in South Africa, which makes it a suitable trophy year round. 

Our hunters typically hunt the South African Gemsbok in conjunction with a 7-10 day African Safari. One of our Experienced and Licensed Professional Hunters will be your guide during your Gemsbok Hunt. We typically hunt Gemsbok Safari Style, Spot and Stalk, or by Still Hunting if you are a Bow Hunter. We can accommodate all methods of Hunting for Gemsbok including Rifle, Bow, Black Powder, Crossbow or Handgun. We can accommodate hunters of any age and experience level. 

The Gemsbok which we hunt on our South Africa Concession are some of the most beautiful in the World. You can expect a 35+ inch Gemsbok Bull or Cow on average when hunting with us, with some each year exceeding 40 inches. 

We also offer hunts for Golden Gemsbok and Ivory Gemsbok. These are rare color variants of the common African Gemsbok.

The Gemsbok (Oryx gazella) is a large antelope native to arid regions of southern Africa.

What do Gemsbok look like:

The Gemsbok is known for its long, straight horns that can reach 47 inches! It has a black and white pattern on its face with a black stripe running down the nose. The coat is a gray-brown color, and they have black and white markings on the legs, along with a long black tail.

Gemsbok Habitat:

Gemsbok are well adapted to harsh and arid environments, like savannas and deserts, and they can survive long periods of time without water. They do this by obtaining moisture from the vegetation they eat. 

Gemsbok Diet:

Gemsbok are herbivores, primarily grazing on grasses and leaves. They also will eat any thorny shrubs, roots, or tubers. They supplement their water intake with wild tsama melons and cucumbers that give them the moisture they would get from having access to water. 

Gemsbok Behavior:

It’s very hard for predators such as lions and cheetahs to prey on gemsbok because of their great agility and speed. Their horns (with are present in both male and female) are also used for defense against predators. They are able to endure high temperatures in their harsh environments, and their skin reflects the suns rays. Gemsbok are very sociable animals that form herds of 10-40 gemsbok, led by a dominant male.

Reproduction of Gemsbok:

Gemsbok usually breed every 9 months, depending on water availability. The gestation period lasts about 270 days and they give birth to 1 or 2 offspring. The mother will hide the offspring for 6 weeks after birth, then the mother and calf will rejoin the herd.
