Your questions matter to us! What would you like to know about Botswana Dangerous Game Hunting?

Our First-Hand Experience

We first hunted in Botswana with this outfitter about 6 years ago at their home lodge for plainsgame with a bow.  When Botswana reopened dangerous game hunting, Clive was well situated to secure some of the finest hunting lands for dangerous game hunting.  The staff, PH’s and quality of game is exceptional in every way.  In our opinion, this safari company is all around a sound operation and at a great value for the experience.

Enjoy hunting with one of the finest safari companies in Africa that has been in the safari business since 1995.  Dangerous game hunting for elephant, buffalo, and leopard is open and legal in Botswana!  We are offering hunts in 6 of the best government concessions in the east and in the west.  The areas have proven high success rates for all of the listed species.  Your hunt will be spot and stalk hunting foot for elephant and buffalo and then for leopards you will either blind hunt or hunt with bush trackers and dogs.

All three species can be combined for an amazing hunting adventure and some plains game animals are available during your hunt.

As you can see in the photos area, you will be staying in authentic tented lodging with a great camp staff and veteran Botswana professional hunters as your guides.

Should you wish to have your own exclusive camp we can arrange this, please enquire at the time of booking.


Leopard hunting:

We offer high opportunity leopard hunts.  Though there are plenty of cats in our areas, we have chosen to only hunt a limited number of cats in order to ensure a higher success rate.  Leopard are hunted in two different ways depending on the area available.  Bustrackers and dogs or over baits. The eastern areas are over baits and the western areas are with dogs.

Leopard in these areas are typically in the 140-165 pound range with the largest at 200 pounds.  Most cats are taken in the late afternoon on safari.


Cape Buffalo:

Cape buffalo hunts are all spot and stalk with the expectation of a 38-40” buffalo.  Expect to walk a number of miles each day on this amazing hunt.


We have the rights to some of the most amazing concessions in Botswana with an astounding success rate.  Our elephant range between 50 – 75 pounds with 93 pounds being the largest to date.  All hunts are conducted on the ground and you can expect to walk 6-8 miles a day during your hunt.

Western area 60-75 pounds
Eastern area 50-60 pounds

The CH8 concession is situated within the Chobe district in north-eastern Botswana, bordering the Maikaelelo Forest reserve in the east and the Kazuma Forest Reserve in the north. The terrain is flat, sandy and verdant mopane forest. The concession is 295,000 acres. 3 hours drive from Kasane. Airstrip is available for charter flights.
