Hunting the nocturnal African Civet cat definitely offers you one of the most exciting hunts while you are night hunting in Africa. The Civet is hunted by spot and stalk tactics along with safari style spotlighting. They are not much seen during the day as they spend most of their days sleeping in dense vegetation then wake up at sunset to start hunting for prey.
The African civet is one of the largest members of the mammal family known as viverrids, with mature adults weighing up to 20 kg. It has short, dense fur that is a greyish colour, with black spots arranged in rows along their bodies. Their legs and about 2/3 of their tail is black, with about a third of the base of their tail having striped markings. Their face is solid grey except for a white muzzle and black markings around the eyes that lead down the face.
The African Civet cat is mostly active during midnight and early mornings. Therefore, you and your professional hunter will go out at night with a spotlight to hunt this predator.
When hunting at night, it is of greatest importance that you have the right rifle at hand. The best Civet cat hunting caliber is a lighter caliber such as a .223 or similar as it is a small, soft-skinned animal. Hunting African civet in South Africa is also suitable for bow hunters.

It’s not just the doing of a thing, but how one does a thing that at the dusk of memory takes one back to the sharp moment of action and then a whiskey and a fire shared with a trusted PH ... that is the true and the beautiful essence of “Safari,” at least for me.
