Botswana Plains and Dangerous Game Hunt #318

Botswana Plains and Dangerous Game Hunt #318

good-kudu-300x225 Botswana made the mistake of closing all hunting in country in May of 2014. At that time, their elephant herd was estimated at 130,000 animals and its’ Okavango Delta was considered to be their premiere hunting area; If not perhaps one of the best in the world. Their then President Ian Khama closed all hunting; largely in a mistaken belief that it would allow them a way to better control the illegal ivory trade, –and gambling that tourism would replace the loss of hunting revenues. Many predicted the crash of the herd within 10 to 20 years. Fortunately, in May of 2019 they reversed course and re-opened hunting, including elephants and other dangerous game. Once the safari companies left, there were no poaching patrols to protect the elephants!

We are excited to be able to once again offer our Hunt Nation clients some truly premiere Botswana plains game and dangerous game hunts. You will be immersed in a true, unparalleled hunting adventure alongside one of Botswana’s most experienced Professional Hunters, plus native Kalahari Bushmen and his professional camp staff. A true African experience!!  And bargain pricing including free day in and free day out, free pickup, no charters and no taxes!! And very reasonable day rates for non-package hunts.

PLAINS-GAME-CAMP-300x203 One of our clients had this to say after two hunts here:
“He has hunted Botswana for 17 years, and after the ban he now has his own outfit. He specialized in Dangerous Game before the government shut the dangerous game down. He has done over 350 elephants and 200 leopards — all in Botswana. He is fantastic guy and PH. Runs a first class operation. Plains game hunts take place in Ghanzi (3 hours south of Maun), with access to well over 100,000 acres. I liked the beautiful safari tented camp with its’ main lapa area for meals and drinks. Also 2 chalets were built last year giving the client choice of accommodation. This area is excellent plains game hunting on large areas. All game is naturally occurring. Camp consists of Safari tents with 2 new chalets giving client option of where they want to stay. Trophy quality here is exceptional. Especially kudu eland and gemsbok. Kudu here is extraordinary, and the 2019 smallest was 54 inches with largest being 59 inches. In camp a guy from Alaska stated he has hunted all over Africa with 21 trips under his belt and he will not hunt anywhere else for plains game. ”
Matt E.

The rich diversity, and abundance of unsurpassed quality of trophy species is only part of what makes this operation a must return destination for so many. In addition to his plains game area, his Okavango area is a massive 250,000 hectares (roughly 600,000 acres). Home to thriving herds of buffalo, elephant, antelope and cat species it is guaranteed to give you an exclusive hunting and viewing encounter as only the Okavango can do.

Our May 2022 husband and wife clients reported on their hunt:  We arrived home today after a great week on our Botswana hunt. Everything was good from the PH’s to the room to the wonderful food. Would heartily recommend this outfitter. We called in jackals one night using a caller. We ended up getting 8 animals and even got a bonus lynx one night that was killing baby impalas. Thank you so much! You’ve never steered us wrong yet. Rick and Susan L.

70-pounder-outfitter-watched-for-20-minutes-1-300x200 PH States: This photo was taken on Tuesday morning while we stood with this 70 pounder for 20 minutes on this concession. We only had the one day to drive around before we had to be back in Maun for the results of concession tenders. This area is loaded with elephants. Before the hunting was closed we ran 85% success rate on Leopard. I expect it will be the same or better. I have hunted all of these areas for 17 years and there are plenty.


76-pounder-1-204x300 Your host and PH, is the essence of a true hunter. Born and raised on a farm in the Kalahari bush he found his passion and honed his skills from an early age becoming one of the most experienced and knowledgeable dangerous and plains game hunters in Botswana. He has led over 350 elephant hunts and 200 Leopard hunts. Beginning his professional career in 1996 he has spent over 20 years in the industry pursuing his dream of building the best safari experience in Botswana. Botswana is a country rich in tradition and culture and that is readily apparent here. Your PH is proud to continue to hunt with native indigenous people, many of whom he was raised with! This gives you a hunting experience unlike any other.

New for 2024 will be a brand new luxury lodge on a ranch that has not been hunted for 40-50 years. It borders the central Kalahari park and the hunting should be fantastic. Hunters will now have 2 ranch options mostly based on what time of accommodations are preferred.
