Safaris in Tanzania

BUFFALO HUNTING in the SELOUS GAME RESERVE

The Selous Game Reserve probably has the biggest buffalo population in Africa. Since 1992, our main PH Peter Dafner has had an astonishing 100% success rate on Cape Buffalo: a very good reason to book your buffalo hunt with us. All other species on a 10 day license can be hunted.

We offer outstanding option of SHARED license, base of 2×1

The following special rates are based on a shared 10 day license* option, either for a 7 day hunt or a 10 day hunt.

Leopard Safari

LEOPARD Safari, on a 12 day hunt. According to Tanzanian regulation, cats can only be hunted on a 21-day-license, so all arrangements for a 21-day safari are included.

All other species on a 21 day license can be hunted except for 2nd and 3rd buffaloes, elephant and lion.

 Elephant Safari

ELEPHANT Safari, on a 14 day hunt. This kind of safari is offered to hunters wanting to take a great tusker. Trophy size limits for elephant are in place in Tanzania, soivory has to weight at least 35 lbs or measure 65 inches per tusk. The elephant population is large in the Selous, but old bulls are always a challenge to find. Great distances must often be covered to get them. Tracking a big tusker is not very strenuous due to the flat landscape, expect however long walks to catch up with him. All other species on a 21 day license can be hunted except for 2nd & 3rd buffaloes, lion & leopard.

Classic Safaris

21 day safari

For elephant, lion, leopard, buffaloes and plains game. This kind of safari is offered to hunters wanting to take big cats (lion and leopard) and a great tusker. Trophy size limits for elephant are in place in Tanzania, so ivory has to weight at least 35 lbs or measure 65 inches per tusk. The elephant population is large in the Selous, but old bulls are always a challenge to find. Great distances must often be covered to get them. Tracking a big tusker is not very strenuous due to the flat landscape, expect however long walks to catch up with him. Hunters will make the choice between elephant or lion, and leopard. All other species on a 21 day license can be hunted.

28 day safari

It’s a classic East-African safari to hunt the big four, elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard. Just the way Ruark liked to do it. We offer this kind of safari for the experienced hunter who intends to take a wide range of game in the Selous Game Reserve. This extended duration is very important to maximize your chance to harvest big trophies. Hunting on foot takes time. Some stalks take only a few hundreds yards, some others take hours, especially on buffalo and elephant. Be prepared.

Observers

  • Observers can experience the thrill of the hunt from the comfort of our 4×4. They can share in the anticipation, the frustrations and the victories toasted at the end of each hunting day.
  • Observers often enjoy bringing a video camera to record the hunt.

South Africa is well known as a nature lovers’ paradise, beautiful scenery and a large variety of fauna and flora will keep you busy while the hunt is on. As South Africa is considered to be “the world in one country” there are many things to do and see. Be sure to inquire about the many excursions that are available in your choice of hunting area. Arrangements can be made to spend time in some of South Africa’s major game parks like the “Kruger National Park” or the “Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve” or in any other South African private game reserves should you be interested. Hunting season all year round.

Tanzania This is possibly the ultimate hunting experience today in Africa. It is also a great place for touring with lots of excursions available, ranging from a photographic safari in the Ngorongoro crater to visiting the well-known Zanzibar Island.

Hunting season is from 1st of July to 31st of March.
