About hunting in Africa
For the hunter seeking a wide variety of game animals, beautiful country, century-old hunting traditions, and the spice of danger, hunting in Africa is an experience unmatched anywhere on Earth. Whether you choose to hunt plains game in southern Africa or take on Cape buffalo and elephant in the wilds of East Africa, a hunt on the African continent will create memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. More than a dozen countries in Africa offer hunting in some form. The countries in southern Africa, especially South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe, are visited by the largest numbers of hunters. Hunting in these countries is accessible and affordable and provides an outstanding experience, especially for the first-timer. East Africa, especially Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Mozambique, holds large wilderness areas and good numbers of dangerous-game animals such as lions, buffalo, leopards, and elephants. Safaris in this region are true to the tradition of the luxury tented safaris of the mid-twentieth century. Safaris in western and central Africa appeal to experienced African hunters in search of very challenging game such as bongo and giant eland. Most hunting in Africa is conducted “safari-style,” where hunters drive around the hunting area in open-topped vehicles searching for game or tracks of game. When game is sighted, hunters stalk on foot, or when fresh tracks are spotted, hunters disembark to follow on foot, sometimes for many hours. There are a few exceptions, such as leopard hunting, which is usually conducted from a blind over bait. With such a wide variety of terrain, countries, and game animals to choose from, hunting in Africa holds something for everyone.
