Hunting dangerous game in Africa is one of the world’s enduring great adventures.  Hunting an animal that can turn the tables on you to where you become the hunted is the ultimate thrill for those who seek hunting’s ultimate challenge.  Dangerous game hunts on the African continent offer the greatest hunting challenges available in the modern world.  While fraught with danger, hundreds of big game hunting safaris are conducted in Africa each year.  And a handful of fatalities occur every year as the hunted can quickly become the hunted.  One wayward shot can put the whole hunting team’s lives in danger.

Hunting dangerous game occurs for 7 primary species, the big five plus the hippo and the crocodile.  While each animal offers its own challenges, it is the big five, consisting of the Cape Buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhinoceros,  that are the most sought after hunting trophies by the modern day African big game hunter.  The taking of the big five is considered the pinnacle of big game hunting and is a milestone in one’s hunting career.  Many hunters never go back to plains game hunting once they have experienced the challenge and thrill of dangerous game hunts in Africa.

Most begin their big game hunting by booking a Cape buffalo hunt.  Cape buffalo are typically the most affordable of the big game animals.  Hunting Cape buffalo can become addictive, and many hunters return year after year for dangerous game hunts to experience the thrill of stalking the Cape buffalo in Africa. 

The next most affordable dangerous game hunt in the big 5 is the leopard.  Dangerous game huntsfor leopard are done by baiting and hunting from blinds, or by utilizing dog packs to tree the leopard.  Hunting from a blind requires a large amount of patience and the ability to remain absolutely still.

Dangerous game hunts in Africa for lion, elephant and rhino are fairly expensive and many times require a journey to an area that is difficult to reach.  Since all three of these animals face pressure from many fronts, permits are somewhat limited and are closely controlled by government regulations and international treaties.  Nonetheless, most hunters dream of dangerous game hunts to the jungles of Africa for one of these species of dangerous game.


"I cannot thank you enough for your advice on booking this 5-star hunt. We had a great hunt!  Our PH was the best! Everything was just as you said it would be. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciated all of your help. Please use me as a reference for anyone you are talking to."

We could not be more pleased!"

"This was our first time to Africa and it was incredible. We were able to harvest all the animals on our wish list and they were fantastic quality trophies.  I would recommend this hunt as you are only about 2 hours from Johannesburg. Thanks to Discount African Hunts we connected with an awesome outfitter and took some great trophies!."
