Buffalo

Buffalo are the most popular and arguably also the most dangerous animal that can be hunted on a safari in Africa. It is not called “Black Death” without reason. It is very important that you are accompanied by an experienced Guide to ensure your safety when hunting the most unpredictable member of the Big Five.

Crocodile

Crocodile are not the most popular of the dangerous game animals that can be hunted in Africa. They do, however present a very challenging and enjoyable hunt that will test the marksmanship of any hunter. Shot placement and patience is of utmost importance when hunting crocodile.

Elephant

As a result of closing down elephant hunting in countries like Botswana, Zambia (and for American hunters in Mozambique) the availability of hunting these giants became restricted. Populations in Southern Africa are still very stable and in some areas there exists a substantial over population of these largest of the African mammals. Elephant can be hunted in the wilderness areas of Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Mozambique as well as areas surrounding Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Hippopotamus

Hippopotamus can be an extremely dangerous animal to hunt. They spend their days wallowing in waterways and dams. These sanctuaries are normally left at dusk to graze in the surrounding area. If threatened, they will instinctively return to the water and present a grave danger to anyone in their path. Most of our hippo hunting is done in Mozambique on a 7 day package hunt, or as an add-on on buffalo and crocodile hunting.

Leopard

Leopard, also known as the silent killer, presents the most difficult dangerous game hunting safari in Africa. These most elusive of the African predators are solitary and mostly nocturnal animals. They will normally be hunted over bait, a process that requires a lot of patience. Once the hunt has been successful though, you are sure to treasure your leopard trophy and memories as one of your favorites. CITES permits are very limited and bookings to be made at least 12 months in advance.

Lion

Lion hunting is banned in Botswana and Zambia. It is permitted in Tanzania with an age restriction of minimum of 6 years old. Lion is also hunted in Zimbabwe (bait), and in the Kalahari region of South Africa. The sandy soil of the Kalahari region provides ideal terrain for tracking the lion on foot - a very dangerous and exciting hunt. This is an adrenalin-filled experience never to be forgotten.

Rhino

White rhino can be trophy hunted in South Africa, following very strict permit issuing procedures. Each rhino hunt is accompanied by a representative or representatives of local nature conservation, to ensure the hunt is conducted in accordance with legislation. These animals do not occur in great numbers. If, however, they are trophy hunted, the proceeds greatly benefit the conservation of the species.
