Where you will hunt

Territory

Several exclusive private hunting camps in the Zimbabwe lowveld are situated in the south east of Zimbabwe on the old Pioneer wagon trail between the famed Tuli Block and the Shashe River. This area is known as the Bubye Valley Conservancy which is privately owned and run. The conservancy is huge with no internal fences and is without a doubt the best all-round hunting area in Zimbabwe – it contains Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino and Cheetah, many more species. You simply will not be disappointed. All species will be hunted in the same area – we will not have to move from place to place thus involving costly air charters.

Success seems to go hand in glove when hunting with John.

10.0 of 10

John knowledge of the game and other animals in the bush was very good. My questions about birds terrain and hunt process were answered with the complete story. The diversity of wildlife observed was amazing. There were plenty of animals other than ones hunted to observe. John has the knowledge and the drive to successfully complete your hunt.

The biggest disappointment was having to end the hunt. To leave this area of such a wide variety of game would have been depressing if know making plans for a future hunt. The price is not cheap, but then again I've found you get what you pay for.

My favorite part of hunting with John is learning about professional hunting strategies and seeing all of the wild game the Bubye offers.

Going back to work after unwinding from internet services. The connectivity in the bush is limited and can be expensive.

Trip of a lifetime

Admittedly, you pay a bit of a premium to hunt on the BVC with John, but the money is well spent! We saw loads of elephant and lion while hunting buffalo. Really neat experience. John and Issac truly are legends. Why not hunt with legends?

Hunting, accommodations, food, company was all first rate.
