Northern Zimbabwe Safari (All in Cape buffalo $14,500)

Outfitter #280

April – November

Hunt Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, sable and a host of other plains game in arguably one of the best Zambezi Valley safari areas with a highly respected safari in Africa today. Bags can be varied with good populations of kudu, warthog, bushbuck, baboon, hyena, zebra and many other plains game animals.

This operator is very serious about anti-poaching and keeping quotas well below what can be sustained in the area to insure great quality and quantity of hunt able animals. Their year-round anti-poaching program has a serious track record of catching and obtaining convictions, thus making their area very unattractive to poachers.

They operate 5 safari camps, all of which are very clean and comfortable, and the food is amazing. Four of the camps are chalets, and a main open-air bar/lounge/dining area, and the other makes use of luxury East Africa style tents with on suite bathroom facilities. Everything in camp and all equipment are kept in top-notch condition. The camps are generator powered for electricity (220V), and laundry is done each day, so you can pack light.

Buffalo hunting is done by tracking and stalking. There are fantastic numbers of buff in the area, and success rates over the past five years has been over 98%. This operator really stresses taking old, hard bossed bulls and letting younger bulls walk, even if they have great horns. The average buffalo will be 37-38”, but a number of 40”+ wide bulls have been taken each year. Each PH is very experienced in all of the Big 4 and conduct numerous buffalo hunts each season.

If the season is right, and you tag out early, there are opportunities to do some tiger fishing on the nearby Zambezi River.

Elephant bulls average 35-40 pounds but 60 pounders have been taken from time to time.

100% success on tuskless elephants.

80% success on leopards

98% success rate on hard bossed buffalo bulls over 5 years.
