Premier Australian Water Buffalo Safari Hunt

Adventure Description

If you are interested in a premier, authentic wild Australian Outback hunt, this is the outfitter & hunt for you. This premier outfitter has thousands of wild water buffalo on their concession. Finding them can be hard work, its not a walk in the park. Their concession, Arnhem Land, is like another country within the tropical Northern Territory, it is situated well east of the city of Darwin and massive Kakadu National Park. Arnhem Land consists of almost 100,000 sq km of wilderness and bush country (36,000 sq miles).. the size of Hungary or Portugal! Arnhem Land has a few small towns around the coast, but 99% is bush, no farms, no fences, no sealed roads. A place where time stands still. This outfitter operate in NLC s19 licensed concessions in Arnhem Land, ensure correct Company and Guide licenses, and safari clients carry their NLC Access permit for safari hunting, and International Visitors Firearms License. To put it simply, this outfitter does it right, and they have earned respect as a trusted hunting consultant and safari operator. Your ultimate experience will take you on a rare journey into this outback wilderness, of flood plains, wild bush, escarpments, scenic rivers, streams and springs. Arnhem Land is one of the worlds last frontiers, where some aboriginal people live off the land in small communities, hunting, fishing, local jobs and following traditional values. When it comes to accommodations, this outfitter utilizes moveable camps that are located near excellent numbers of Buffalo. This outfitters passion is the older traditional ways, so real hunters will enjoy classic safari camps, green canvas tents, wood tables, green canvas and wood safari chairs, lanterns, and a step back in time. Arriving back to camp, safety first, ensure all unloaded rifles are stored. Then relax as the snacks and cold drinks appear... the first may not even touch the sides. Off with the Courtney safari boots, and time for a breather. The assistant already has the shower water heating up. The dust, sweat and dirt is washed off after the sun has gone. A new person with rejuvenated muscles will appear, and a good meal of specially charred steak and crisp vegetables, complimented with a South Australian cabernet sauvignon or merlot. (liquor license is required). In the Outback, the night sky is amazing, as the Southern Cross appears amongst hundreds of bright stars. Hunters discuss the excitement of the day, new hunt plans, fine rifles, calibers, and hunting all over the world. When it comes to the Arnhem Land concession, it is a big, minimal tracks, many 100s of Water Buffalo, and plenty of exploring. A variation of fantastic wilderness, outback country, escarpments, good creeks, rivers, streams and springs for our tropical safari camps, and for the 4x4s to explore. You will see small and larger herds of Water Buffalo, lone old Bulls and small groups of Buffalo bulls, some Scrub Bull (wild ox, toro), and occasional Wild Boar. With luck you may also see Dingo, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Emus, Fresh Water Crocodiles. It is not easy hunting, as this country is vast and rugged, and you have to find the Buffalo. This outfitter does not have a network of tracks, no dams, no troughs and no hides, this is wilderness. Explore by rugged 4x4, then hunt on foot with your classic double or bolt rifle at hand. The Banteng safaris are in north west Arnhem Land, the NLC licensed WS concession is productive walk and stalk hunting, from a classic tented camp. It is a much smaller concession, but has good numbers of wild Banteng, these are a beautiful species, and also dangerous game. As mentioned, these safari areas are NLC s19 licensed land use areas, and NLC access permits are required. This is a true dangerous game hunt, this outfitter’s professional hunters and clients have stopped over 35 charges of Water Buffalo, Scrub Bull, and Banteng coming fast. Asiatic water buffalo bulls weigh between 700kg and 900kg, and even up to 1000kg (2200lb). Like most wild animals they can appear calm or run off, yet if wounded or cornered Water Buffalo can be just as tough and nasty as Cape Buffalo. Yes a charge is very rare, it is often unexpected, and adrenaline can make a wounded bull seam unstoppable. This outfitter also has had cows suddenly charge to protect their young, and have seen other bulls charge to protect a downed bull. This all being said, this outfitter backs every hunter with a seasoned professional hunter that carries high caliber back-up firearms to protect each hunter if anything were to escalate on the hunt. This hunt is ultimately ran an orchestrated by a preferred outfitter that has been planning safaris and guiding clients for 28 years, old style safari, full-time, honest and ethical. Annually, they welcome back many repeat customers. If you’re interested in learning more about this exceptional safari hunting adventure and would like to book this adventure in the coming year, give us a call today!
