The untamed wilderness of this unique country makes Zimbabwe still one of Africa’s top hunting destinations. Formerly known as Rhodesia, Zimbabwe is a 150,820 sq. mile landlocked country between the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers. It hosts not only breath-taking savannah and woodlands but also large bodies of water such as Lake Kariba and the famous Victoria Waterfalls.
Our trophy hunting season is all year round, but with the best hunting days during the dry, sunny, winter months (May to September). Average temperatures range then between 7°C and 20°C (45°F and 70°F) in comparison to summers that can be hot and humid (25°C to 38°C / 75°F to 100°F). Most hunting takes place in three different types of areas namely governmental hunting areas, tribal hunting areas and private hunting areas. Most of these territories are unfenced and open.
We also offer another amazing property in Zimbabwe known for its majestic elephant bulls while Lake Kariba is home to excellent trophy crocodiles and hippos.
When it comes to wing shooting, several species of duck, geese, partridge, guinea fowl, pigeon, dove and quail are available for hunting.
