Where to hunt East African Impala

East African Impala dwells in lightly wooded areas, savannah and bush and of East Africa, including Tanzania and Kenya. East African Impala does not differ much from the Southern Impala in looks, behavior and biology. However, the trophies of East African Impala tend to be significantly bigger than those of the Southern variety, which is why the trophy record books have different entries for them. East African Impala hunting today is open in Tanzania.

It can be hard for a beginner to calculate a budget for an African hunting adventure. Some of the prices seem too good to be true, others may sound prohibitively expensive. Most outfitters list only “daily rates” and “trophy fees”, sometimes a “package tour”. There’s a long list of things that are “not included” in these costs, and some that are not even mentioned there (like air fare). What are the “other costs” and how much can the total price of the trip come down to?

When to hunt East African Impala?

Typically, the best time for Impala hunting is the rut, which usually takes place in May. However, the hunting season in Tanzania doesn’t start until July. Any part of the Tanzanian hunting season is good for plains game hunting, but the end of the dry season, in August-November is usually preferred.

Impala inhabits shrub and savannah type habitat where a hunter and the PH can see far to spot the animals, and yet there’s enough cover to stalk them. Their diurnal habits make Impala one of the best quarries for spot-and-stalk hunting. Hunters should be aware that Impala is a social creature, and the herd will get together in a tight group if alarmed. Here the hunter faces a risk that the bullet may go through the animal and hit another one that’s standing behind it, resulting in violation of hunting rules as the hunter may not have a permit for another Impala.

Why hunt East African Impala?

A safari in Tanzania is an experience every hunter will be proud to have under his or her belt. The country blessed with comfortable climate in the dry season, amazing landscapes and abundance of wildlife, no wonder it attracted so many great hunters of the old times. A bread-and-butter Impala will hardly be the main objective of a hunter on a Tanzanian safari. And yet you can hardly miss hunting this iconic, elegant and graceful animal once you’re there. If you’re planning a safari in Tanzania, be sure to add Impala to your trophy list!
