Hunting golden wildebeest in South Africa is for the hunter who has hunted here on several occasions. Walking and stalking methods works best early in the morning while the animals are feeding. Golden wildebeest hunting is a riveting and often demanding hunt, as these animals are very alert and will flee immediately if they perceive a threat. At Somerby Safaris we offer excellent hunting areas with stunning golden wildebeest trophies. We will go above and beyond to find the perfect golden wildebeest trophy for your trophy room back home. Our professional hunters have years of experience in stalking and taking down these beautiful beasts and will guide you on an exceptional and successful golden wildebeest hunt.
The golden wildebeest is a rare variation/mutation in colour from the blue wildebeest. These beautiful antelope have a specific golden colour, often with dark brown vertical stripes across the chest. They are strong and muscular with a golden beard and mane and round, curved horns and pointed ears. A mature bull weighs approximately 300 pounds and stands up to 50 inches tall at shoulder height.
Golden wildebeest thrive best in open plains, and will often be found grazing on the savannah.
Hunting golden wildebeest in Africa with less than .270 caliber is not recommended. On your golden wildebeest hunt, the flat shooting .300 magnums are the best option.
When hunting golden wildebeest, aim to position yourself for the side-on shot. Place the shot up the back edge of the front leg and aim approximately four inches above the point of the elbow. This particular shot will take heart and lungs.

Absolutely one of the best hunting experiences of my life. For anyone looking to book a serious African safari, do not hesitate to contact Somerby!
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.
