Water buffalo hunt
The game reserve has a very high number of buffaloes. The Australian buffaloes are very bullet-hard and comparable to the African cape buffalo, if not even harder. The recommended minimum caliber is 338 Win Mag. The buffalo hunt is carried out with the help of SUVs or ATVs, either fresh tracks are found crossing the street or you can see single bulls standing in the plane. After the buffalo is spotted, he is stalked on foot to get a better look. The shooting distance varies from 20 meters in the thick bush to 100 meters in the open planes.
The horns of a full-grown bull measure from tip to toe 95-105cm, with a length of 68-90cm per horn. The weight of a water buffalo is usually 700 to 800kg with exceptions of up to 1000kg.
Wild boar hunting
Our partner has one of the highest populations of wild boar throughout Australia. It is not uncommon to see 100 or more pigs in one day. The hunts can be done very well as a supplement to the buffalo hunts.
The grassy plains are ideal habitats for the wild boar, which also weights of up to 140kg. The hunt is usually done early in the morning and late at night. The tusk length of the boar is exceptionally good and ranges from 15cm-25cm, the strongest hunted boar to date had 30cm (2005)!
The accommodations are all air conditioned and equipped with ensuite bathrooms. The on-site chef prepares meals including local venison, prime Australian beef steaks and Barramundi fish fillets. Meals such as breakfast and lunch can be taken both in the dining room and on the 270 degree terrace overlooking the plains.
There are a number of rental weapons in different calibres available on site (Blaser, Sauer, CZ Brno, Ruger, Beretta), 375 H & H for buffalo, 308 for wild boar and 12 gage hunting shotguns. The weapons are each equipped with rifle scopes or optics.
If you want to bring your own weapon, we will help you with import permits.
Transport to the hunting area
Transport can take place both by road and by air charter. You will be picked up at the airport upon arrival or by the hotel. The journey takes about 2.5 hours from Darwin to the hunting area. If you are interested, a propeller machine can be chartered for an additional fee, then the journey time will be shortened to 25 minutes.
There is a year-round hunting season and the best time is from the end of April to the end of November. The best climate is from May to September during this time it is usually dry with a very low rain probability. Temperatures vary from 14 degrees at night to 32 degrees during the midday sun. The Australian summers are hotter and wetter.
