About this hunt

The basic package consists of 6-7 nights with 5-6 hunting days (depending on flight schedules) for one (1) person hunting 5 Hippos. It is possible to add extra hunters as well as hippos to the package. We can accommodate a maximum of 4 people (hunters and observers) and 9-10 hippos per hunt. Observers are welcome to join us but may not participate in any hunting activities, however, they may observe the hunting activities. You will be accompanied by a Zambian registered professional hunter and one or two nature conservation officers. The hunter can expect to shoot at least one (1) mature bull while the remaining quarry will be determined by the nature conservation officer and may include females as well as young bulls. The tusks (canines) and a sjambok of the biggest hippos may be exported at an additional charge. With special arrangement, the skull can be exported. Accompanying the hunters will be a retrieval- and slaughtering team. The hippos will be skinned as soon as possible, and the meat and skins shipped to processing plants, thus providing the local communities with job opportunities and food security. Permits for this hunt will be issued by the Department of National parks and wildlife (DNPW). It must be stressed that this is a problem animal management hunt and not a trophy hunt, although tusks and sjamboks may be exported if so required.
