Tsessebe hunting in South Africa is best done by spot and stalk methods. Trophy tsessebe are found in fairly open areas and near water in the late afternoon. With bowhunting, the best bet is to hunt from a blind overlooking water. Somerby Safaris offers excellent tsessebe hunting in prime area in the Limpopo and Free State provinces. Our outstanding areas are what set us apart from the rest and our experienced and skilled professional hunters will ensure a tsessebe hunting experience that will not only be exhilarating, but that will also end in a beautiful and unusual looking trophy.
Tsessebe bulls have a mass of 308 pounds and measure 40 inches at the shoulders. Both sexes grow horns, but those on bulls are heavier. When viewed from the front the horns appear typical 'halfmoon' shaped. It has a dark face with purple blotches on the shoulders, whereas the withers and upper body are reddish-brown. Tsessebe are the fastest antelope found in Africa and can attain speeds of over 90 km/h.
Limpopo and Free State
Trophy tsessebe can be found in open savannah woodland with adjacent grassland and surface water.
When hunting tsessebe in South Africa, a flat shooting rifle will be needed. Use a minimum of a .270 Winchester with quality expanding 130 grain bullets. The 7mms or 30 calibers will deliver excellent results on your tsessebe hunt, especially when combined with 180-grain bullets.
Aim for the inside of the closer shoulder of the tsessebe on your African hunting safari.
