Review of Nick Bowker Hunting South Africa

April 2021

Review of Nick Bowker Hunting for an unforgettable african hunting safari
African Hunting Safari - sable antelope trphy

It took me nearly 68 years to determine I could actually hunt in South Africa. And it didn’t require being a millionaire to make it happen. I took 8 trophies and was treated like a king. All this for less than a guided Montana Elk Hunt. a far lower percentage of taking just one trophy class bull. Don’t get me wrong. I will never stop chasing the great Wapiti in my home state. I have 400+ bulls hanging on my wall; however, South Africa is the answer when it all comes down to the hunt of a lifetime.

Low Fenced African Hunting

March 2020

Gemsbok low fenced African Hunting
Accommodation for Hunting with Nick Bowker

“Hunting with no fences or low fenced African hunting (meant to control sheep, not the wild game) was a priority. Nick’s hunting areas fit the bill. The numbers and variety of animals blew us away.”

African Cull Hunt

November 2019

One horned Nyala shot in a cull hunt.

“I saw a posting on another website for an African cull hunt package for twenty animals. The package included five trophies and fifteen culls.

The animals in the package were Springbok, Impala, Blesbok, Mountain Reedbuck, and warthogs. I did not care about the trophies.

I didn’t know what to expect of a cull hunt. Once I saw on TV where someone had a portable shooting bench, and the TV made it look like a shoot and stack them up.

I got the impression that it was a “lesser” form of hunting. It turned out to be the same as trophy hunting. The difference being multiple tags, and your “trophy” has different characteristics.”

My first African Hunting Safari

October 2019

Warthog trophy shot. An African Hunting Safari, the stories of vast lands.

“A Hunting Safari in Africa, the stories of vast lands, and a variety of many animals. In 2019 my friends invited me on a trip to South Africa.

A trip I am glad to have been part of. Nick Bowker runs a quality operation, laid back, easy-going, friendly accommodation, and great food.

From Day 1, it was “Hakuna Matata.” Morning coffee, to scanning the ever-changing landscape for trophies to be had.

A grand brunch, a good nap, great company, back to surveying the countryside for more trophies.

To top it off with stories and tall tales of the daily adventures, wine and dine and start all over the next day.”

African Hunting Safari Plains Game Hunt

October 2019

Kudu trophy. I had the opportunity to make that dream a reality finally.

“Growing up, I was an avid reader. “Green Hills of Africa” by Ernest Hemingway and “African Game Trails” by Theodore Roosevelt were always favorites.

I had a deep passion for hunting from an early age. Hunting the dark continent has always been a dream.

This last fall, I had the opportunity to finally make that dream a reality and booked a plains game hunt with Nick Bowker.

I chose to hunt with Nick because he runs a low-fence, free-range operation.

The second reason was the African hunting safari cost was unbeatable.”

First Time African Hunting Safari

October 2019

Impala trophy. While I was after Kudu, my wife had never shot a rifle outside of two rounds.

“My wife and I decided to take our honeymoon to South Africa for 2 weeks.

We got the opportunity to stumble across Nick’s website while planning, and he was one of the few Professional Hunters that offered single day hunting.

Outside of the other great African hunting safari packages that he has advertised.

Nick and his brother greeted us at the airport and took the short 2-hour drive to his family farm.

While I was after Kudu, my wife had never shot a rifle outside of two rounds at a target more than a decade ago.”

Armando’s fifth African Hunting Safari

October 2019

Lechwe trophy shot on an African hunting trip

“Armando was back with his wife Roberta for their fifth African hunting safari.

Previously Armando had made hunting trips to Namibia, the Limpopo region, and the Eastern Cape.

Armando was looking for high-quality Lechwe, Nyala, Waterbuck, and Bushbuck trophies in a free-range environment.

I was on hand to meet Armando and Roberta at the Port Elizabeth airport after their long trip from Italy and drive them back to the lodge.”

African Hunting Safari – The Czechs arrive

August 2019

Hunting safari in Africa. Nick is an Outfitter with more than 25 years of professional experience.

“Rob Bowker collected us from the airport in Port Elizabeth.

I was returning for a 2nd African hunting Safari with Nick Bowker.

After having an excellent previous experience with Nick, I was keen for our next adventure.

I was keen to bring my friend Andre for some free-range hunting in South Africa.

Nick is an Outfitter with more than 25 years of professional experience and had offered a fantastic 7 animal trophy package.”

Our African Hunting trip with Nick Bowker

April 2019

Kudu trophy shot on a African hunting trip.

“It was 7 years since our last hunting trip to the Eastern Cape South Africa with Nick Bowker Hunting.

I was with my buddy for our second trip with Nick. We wanted to go after some different animals this time.

We also wanted to hunt a few of the same animals as our first time in South Africa. On the last trip, we had had fantastic Kudu hunting.

In 2012, both of us took a Kudu, Mountain Reedbuck, Springbuck, Impala, Warthog, and Blesbok.

Nick has very appealing 8-day seven animal hunting packages available for South African Plains Game.”

My African Hunt

May 2018

Waterbuck trophy shot on a hunting safari in Africa.

“While touring their quaint log home, Thomas showed us his African trophies.

You know one thing leads to another, and a year later, Thomas and I are on an airplane to Africa. Wild! My first African hunt.

Our host, Nick Bowker, and his brother Rob, rugged 5th generation South African “farmers” of English descent, were most gracious and met us at the “Oliver Tambo” Airport in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.

A small airport on the order of Colorado Springs.

Guns, ammo, luggage all right there and a great relief after nearly 24 hours of flight from Minneapolis, Houston, Atlanta, Johannesburg, and Port Elizabeth.”
