Feb – Nov
Sable hunting in the famous Matetsi region is world renowned for its trophy quality. This region varies from the mixed woodland, rolling hills and vleis and was the favorite hunting grounds of Fredrick Courteney Selous in the late 1800’s and has been mentioned numerous times in his book A Hunter’s Wanderings in Africa.
Cabela’s Outdoor adventures has been sending our clients and employees to this hunters paradise for decades. We have the experience to recommend the best areas for you to bag your trophy sable, the ideal time of year to hunt, and even the rifle you need to make the shot. Trophy sable in this region average 40″+ and our PH’s have won “Best Sable” three times from the Zimbabwe Professional Hunters & Guides Association with their largest sable going an incredible 47.5-inches.
From our years of hands on expertise we are able to tailor make safaris to the specific trophy requirements and needs of the hunter. Other key species in this region are Cape buffalo, leopard, kudu, zebra, impala, hyena and warthog to name a few.
