When hunting klipspringer in Africa, this oftentimes forms part of the Tiny Ten challenge. Hunters who enjoy the mountains and the challenges that come with mountain hunting will find klipspringer hunting to be a must. The art in hunting these fleet-footed masters of the rocks is to get into glassing positions without being detected. Hunters can expect shots to be long with steep gradients at times. Klipspringer hunting in South Africa can be quite challenging but with Somerby Safaris, you will be guided and assisted by your professional hunter all the way. We have the absolutely excellent areas for klipspringer hunting and these hunts are conducted in the Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Western Cape, North West and Eastern Cape provinces of South Africa.
The klipspringer is a small and stocky antelope. Ewes are slightly larger than the rams. Only rams have short horns, which are ringed only at the base. Klipspringer have smallish rounded ears positioned far back on the head, and with noticeable dark inner markings. The coarse-haired coat is variable in colour with shades of grey, yellow, brown or red, with marked white underparts, chin and lips. A prominent feature is the large, black pre-orbital gland. The klipspringer has an average shoulder height of 22 inches and average weight of 40 pounds.
Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Western Cape, North West and Eastern Cape provinces of South Africa.
Klipspringer have a restricted habitat preference, namely to very rocky environments of mountainous areas and koppies. This allows this nimble-footed antelope to escape from its predators.
When hunting klipspringer in Africa, the best caliber to use is the .22 centerfire. The .243 Winchester, any of the 6mm calibers, and the .270 are great options as well for klipspringer hunting.
Klipspringer hunting shot placement can be different depending on bullet use. Expanding bullets call for a shot that is aimed behind the shoulder. With solids, keep your aim point farther forward. If a frontal shot presents itself, place it low in the chest area.
