Feb – Nov
Zimbabwe safari in the famous Matetsi region which is world renowned for its trophy quality of elephant, lion, Cape buffalo, leopard and sable. 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. Our PH’s have a combined 50 years on the ground hunting experience and understand the vital ingredients for a memorable and successful hunt. Zimbabwe is their home and it makes a huge difference working directly with Zimbabwean born PH who is properly licensed and has the current local inside knowledge and hands on experience. Their personal set of skill have yielded great trophies consistently for Cabela’s clients. Through many years of partnership, boots on the ground and our PH’s expertise we are able to tailor make safaris to the specific trophy requirements and needs of the hunter.
