Zimbabwe Dangerous Game and Plains Game # 258

258.1  Over 30 years experience in Zimbabwe hunting dangerous game and plains game, means you are hunting with seasoned veterans who know the game and the country, and know it well. This outfit, and its PH’s have a sterling record, compiled over many years of professional hunting.

They have two locations. The first is in the world famous Save Valley Conservancy in the South East Lowveld of Zimbabwe. The Save Valley Conservancy is just under 1 million acres in size and is reported to be the largest private wildlife area in the world. The area is renowned for its big 4 hunting as well as a huge variety and abundance of plainsgame. There is a wide diversity of habitats including open acacia woodland, mopane woodland, thick riverine vegetation and broken granite outcrops. Black and white rhino are likely to be seen during your safari there.

Their second location is sometimes considered to be one of Zimbabwe’s best hunting concessions. It is called the Sengwa Research area. It is located in the North West portion of the country in the Gokwe District. It is exactly half way between Harare and Victoria Falls. This offers a great opportunity for incoming guests to visit the world famous Victoria Falls en route to their safari. Vic Falls has to be seen to be appreciated. And with the US dollar so strong against the nearly worthless Zim Dollar, spending time in the Falls area is not expensive, and there are some wonderful hotels and restaurants.
This truly beautiful area consists of huge floodplains and rolling plateaus. The wide variety of terrain from Mopane woodland, jesse, sandveld ridges and huge vlei’s provide wonderful habitat for huge resident herds of elephant, buffalo and plainsgame. Obviously plentiful prey allows for a good population of the big cats.
Elephant trophies average between 40 and 45 pounds with the occasional bull over 50 pounds being taken most years. Tuskless cows are also plentiful and these safaris are close to 100% successful. The best times for hunting the bulls are early in March through May and late in September and October. Tuskless cows are better during the drier months of June through October.
Buffalo are plentiful and are best during the drier months of June through October.
The big cats are best hunted during the cool months of May through August. All cat hunting here is done during daylight hours and is therefore a great opportunity for the hunting purists who prefer not to use artificial light.

The Camp in the Save area is situated on the banks of the Turgwe River in the heart of the Save Valley Conservancy. It has six luxury stone chalets with the typical thatch roofs and includes en-suite bathrooms. The dining area is continuous with a wooden deck that offers stunning views of the river. The camp is shaded by a canopy of giant nyala berry trees.

The Camp in the Sengwa area consists of three East African safari style tents . All are what you would expect of a quality operation, with en-suite bathrooms and all the necessary conveniences for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. A central dining area on a big bluff overlooking the Sengwa River provides a wonderful and scenic evening relaxation spot.

Finally, they have a pretty little guest lodge in Harare for their clients. The rate per night is around $125 and includes airport transfer, all food and beverages and shopping trips within Harare. This helps you get a night of rest before jumping off for the bush.
