African Bowhunting Adventures was created with one goal in mind – to give bowhunters from across the world the hunt of a lifetime. Africa is a dream destination for so many and we pride ourselves on making it a reality.

Danie Geel, the owner and founder of African Bowhunting Adventure (ABA), is a passionate bowhunter and has been hunting with a bow for 15 years. His dad took him on his first hunt at the age of 3 and he successfully hunted his first animal at the age of 5. He then hunted a Cape Buffalo at the age of 11 and soon after discovered  a new love and passion for hunting with bow and arrow. Since then, he has taken more than 45 species with the bow including multiple Top 10 SCI trophies with a World record and several #2 and #3s.

Bowhunting is still relatively new to a lot of outfitters and land owners in Africa and that’s exactly why it is so important to go with a company that will place you in ideal situations for a bowhunters and understand your unique requirements.

“I started ABA to exceed in the expectations of all bowhunters, whether it is a hunter who wants to hunt the normal plains game species for the first time or even a more advanced hunter with the Tiny 10 or even some of the Big 5 in his/her sights.”

African Bowhunting Adventures are currently operating in South Africa, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia and Namibia. All of our locations are verified to be bowhunting friendly and we have done everything within our power to give you, as a passionate bowhunter, the best possible opportunity on your specific trophy. Our areas specialize in the more difficult species to hunt with bow and arrow.

I have hunted in Africa for over 20 years and the past 15 years mostly with bow and arrow. I understand that a Bowhunter’s needs are different than that of a rifle hunter. I live by the philosophy that a rifle hunter has already taken the shot where our stalk starts.
