Africa Hunt Lodge allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest Trophy Class South African Waterbuck. The Limpopo Province of South Africa is the premier destination in the World to hunt the Waterbuck. Year round, we offer hunts for awesome Trophy Waterbuck as there are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Waterbuck in South Africa.

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

The Waterbuck which we hunt on our South Africa Concession are the biggest in the World. You can expect a 26-28 inch Waterbuck on average when hunting with us, with some each year exceeding 30 inches.  Africa Hunt Lodge has taken multiple World Records since 2010 with different methods of hunting.

The Waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus) is a large antelope species found in sub-Saharan Africa.

What do Waterbuck look like:

The color of the Waterbuck is reddish-brown with a lighter colored throat and underside. Only the Waterbuck males have long and ridged horns that curve backward. Waterbucks are easily recognized by the white ring marking around their rumps. 

Waterbuck Habitat:

Waterbucks are commonly found savannas, grasslands, and woodlands throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. They inhabit areas that are close to water such as rivers, lakes, marshes, or swamps. 

Waterbuck Diet:

Waterbucks are primarily grazers, they eat coarse grass and will occasionally browse leaves from different trees and bushes. 

Waterbuck Behavior:

Waterbuck are active during the early morning and late afternoon, while they are seeking shelter from the heat during the day. Waterbucks are known to stand in water to escape from predators, they are strong swimmers that can flee into the water when threatened. Waterbucks are found in small groups consisting of females and their offspring and a dominant male. 

Waterbuck Reproduction:

Waterbuck breeding peaks during the rainy season, and after a gestation period of about 8-9 months, females will give birth to a single calf. Calfs are hidden from predators in dense vegetation for the first few weeks.
