Melody African Safaris do a lot of interesting and exciting hunts which the African lynx or Caracal is one of them. Dogs are used on this hunt and usually we start the hunt early morning with sunrise by listening where bushbucks bark. We then let the dogs loose in that area and they start searching for the sent. The sent of the lynx can only be picked up by the dogs while the grass and ground is still wet from early morning dew. Once the dogs pick up the sent they will tree the lynx where it will be shot with a shotgun.
Another one is the Blue duiker. It�s the smallest antelope in Africa and weighs about 12 � 15 lbs. Dogs are also used on this hunt. They stay in very thick bush and cover. The bush is divided into blocks with roads that have been made by hand. The dogs are let loose and with the help of a few beaters they walk through the bush and that pushes the blue duiker to run across these roads and will then give the opportunity to shoot him also with a shotgun.
Two other animals which are different in our area are the Kudu and Bushbuck. They are both much darker and prettier with definite stripes and markings on them. The bushbucks are almost black.
