ALONG WITH PHOTOGRAPHIC (TOURING) PACKAGES
This PH grew up in the hunting industry in Namibia and became the youngest qualified big game professional hunter in Namibian history and he is also one of the few PH’s that has hunted all the big five. He has the hunting rights on their concession consisting of 400,000 wild African acres and his family also owns a 17,000 acre high fence reserve within the concession where hunters are able to pursue animals that are not indigenous to Namibia, although 90 percent of the hunts take place on the free range conservancy.
These safaris include pickup and return to Windhoek Airport, concession area fees, PH, gun bearer, tracker, skinner, camp staff, field transportation, daily laundry service, accommodations, meals, alcoholic beverages in moderation, soft drinks, field preparation and delivery of trophies to export taxidermist.

Luxury accommodations are in a typical African savanna setting with all rooms having en-suite bathrooms and located about 70 yards apart overlooking a natural waterhole that is frequented by many species of wild animals. They also have a family unit with two bedrooms and a private connected sitting room. The lodge has the dining area where traditional meals are prepared mainly on the outside barbeque under thatched roof with many of the meats from the day’s harvest. Evening drinks are enjoyed around the campfire each night after hunting.
They also offer big game safaris in the famous Bwabwata National Park consisting of 1.5 million acres of untouched wilderness known for large elephant bulls, incredible numbers of cape buffalo, hippo, crocodile, and a large variety of plains game.

FREE RANGE CAPE BUFFALO $19,750 ALL INCLUSIVE
SOUTH AFRICA BALULE AREA OF KRUGER CONSERVANCY
7 DAYS TRADITIONAL TRACKING ON FOOT
BULL ELEPHANT $38,000 ALL INCLUSIVE 8 DAYS
These restrictive permits are acquired through the Kruger Conservancy with the purpose of harvesting 10+ year old mature bulls in the 36 to 38 inch range. Sometimes this takes course over several days, but most hunts are successful in 3 or 4 days. Past SUCCESS HAS BEEN 100 PERCENT, but in the unlikely event the hunter would not get a buffalo $10,000 would be refunded. Hunt will include all licenses, permits, trophy fee, 1×1 PH, skinners, camp staff, accommodations, catering, laundry, day rate, taxes, and airport pickup.
Here is a premier free range cape buffalo hunt for old mature bulls with the possibility of seeing the “Big 5”. In our opinion this 50,000 acre portion of the Greater Kruger Conservancy area is as good or better than most other Africa destinations without the travel problems or getting your trophies shipped back home. This is your classical cape buffalo hunt, where you and your PH and trackers find fresh spoor of old mature bachelor bulls “Dugga Boys” (they try to target bulls 12 years of age or older) and proceed on foot to hopefully get the opportunity to take or pass the buff.
7 day hunt for buffalo guided 1×1 is $19,750. Camp accommodations are very nice and personal. The main building has 4 private cabins near a well-frequented water hole where hunters can see or hear elephants, lion, hyena, leopard, or a host of other wildlife. Once you have taken your buffalo remaining days can be spent at camp or visiting Kruger National Park.
On the normal 7 day hunt many buffalo hunters spend their remaining days hunting the Umkomaas River Conservancy located only about an 8 hour ride from the buffalo area. The Umkomaas is 160,000 free range acres of relatively thick hilly country that harbors exceptional nyala, bushbuck and greater southern kudu, along with other indigenous species of plains game such as bushpig, grey duiker, giraffe, eland, reedbuck both common and mountain, blue and black wildebeest, warthog, and waterbuck. Accommodations are the traditional tented camp with en suite chalets, electric blankets, if necessary, with indoor and outdoor showers making this a great experience. Most hunters add on 3 days to make this hunt an awesome 10 day safari. The travel day and day rate are included on your 7 day buffalo hunt and when you surpass that the remaining 3 days are priced at only $400 per day plus trophy fees on additional animals. This area produces the highest quality and numbers of free range nyala and cape bushbuck hunting we have experienced anywhere.
Hunters are picked up at the Johannesburg Airport and driven 4 hours to the buffalo camp at no charge. Limited buffalo openings are available and best dates would be from May to late September.
ELEPHANT HUNTS are restricted to about a 35 pound limit and success has been 100 percent on bulls of that caliber.

NUMBER 1 BUFFALO AND LEOPARD DESTINATION
MOZAMBIQUE TROPHY BUFF HUNTS $26,000
7 DAYS HUNT 40 INCH PLUS BULLS
LEOPARD/BUFFALO 14 DAYS $64,800
This is arguably the best buffalo hunt for exceptional trophy bulls and big leopards with 100 percent past success on both, but it is expensive. The Sabie Area of southwestern Mozambique bordering the eastern boundary of the Greater Kruger Conservancy probably is the best buffalo hunting in all Africa. Free range area that typically has good rains resulting in an abundance of animals, including the Big 5 that you can expect to see during your safari.
7 hunting days is $26,000 and includes all the permits, concession, and community fees along with the normal safari amenities. This area also has some exceptional Greater kudu and Limpopo bushbuck, Sharpe’s grysbok is also endemic to the area. This hunt is for old mature bulls and hunters wanting a 40 inch or better buffalo. Success has been 100 percent.
Leopard hunting is super limited and there is only one leopard tag for this area resulting in extremely big toms with past success at 100 percent and cats are typically taken in daylight hours.
This safari can also be combined with a free range plains game hunt on the South Africa side in the Umkommas River Conservancy as it is only a 7 hour drive.Hunters fly into Johannesburg and take a short inexpensive flight to Maputo, Mozambique where you are met and driven 4 hours to a wilderness buffalo camp.

NAMIBIA 14 DAY LEOPARD $29,000
BOTSWANA 10 DAY LEOPARD $44,735
BOTH CONTINUES 100% SUCCESS
This Namibia PH went 5 for 5 on nice male leopards in 2022 continuing their 100 percent success rate.
2021 finished with 6 hunters taking 6 big toms. Expect to hunt long hours in the blind as they want you to take a nice trophy tom as much as you do. They utilize trail cameras and once a good cat is spotted a blind will be built normally 70 to 100 yards from the bait.
Luxury hunting lodges and tented camps with en suite bathrooms along with daily laundry, fine dining accompanied with the finest cuisine and a variety of spirits.
Price breakdown is 14 hunting days plus 2 days $14,000, tag $5,000, trophy fee $10,000 totaling $29,000. Pre baiting is recommended at an additional $2,000.
Hunters fly into Windhoek where they are met and driven to camp.
They also work with a BOTSWANA outfit that conducts LEOPARD HUNTS WITH DOGS and bushmen and you can stay until you kill! Success has continued at 100 percent going 4 for 4 and pricing is broken down for a 10 day hunt totaling 12 days at $11,610, 14% VAT tax $1,625, bushmen trackers and dogs $5,000, Resource Utilization Fee $11,500, government license fee $5,000, trophy fee $10,000 totaling $44,735.
