Exotic Plains Game Hunting Safaris in Ethiopia

An exotic plains game safari in Ethiopia offers an opportunity to take a wide variety of plains game species, several of which are only found in Ethiopia.  Due to high government trophy fees, an exotic plains game hunting safari in Ethiopia can be one of the more expensive hunts offered in Africa.  Ethiopia is a densely populated country that features a unique and distinctive culture.  An Ethiopian hunting safari is considered by many to be the hunt of a lifetime, especially if the target is the elusive mountain nyala.

The mountain nyala is one of Africa's nine spiral-horned antelopes and is a must for those seeking to complete the African spiral-horned slam.  With only an estimated 4,000 mountain nyala remaining and limited quotas being available, this is one hunt that takes some significant advance planning.  Only 5 licensed Ethiopian outfitters currently exist, and some of them book up years in advance.  The Menelick's bushbuck and highland forest leopard are two other animals that may be taken while hunting high in Ethiopia's mountains. Highland forest leopard are not importable into the US.

Other species unique to Ethiopia include Abyssinian bohor reedbuck, Abyssinian bushbuck, Abyssinian greater kudu, Neuman's hartebeest, northern gerenuk, Salt's dik-dik and Soemerling's gazelle.  Species that are not unique to Ethiopia but may also be hunted include Chanler's mountain reedbuck, East African Defassa waterbuck, lesser kudu, serval, bushpig, warthog, Guenther's dik-dik, southern Grant's gazelle and giant forest hog.

Ethiopia offers diverse hunting habitats.  In addition to the mountain hunting, the Omo Valley is a prime destination for many hunters seeking to harvest some of the plains game species found at the lower elevations. Biye Bahi is a desert hunting area where species unique to desert environments such as the Harar dik-dik and the golden jackal may be hunted. An exotic plains game hunting safari in Ethiopia is truly a hunting experience to be cherished, as it is unique on the African continent!


"I had the hunting experience of a lifetime. And I have a real need to go back. I made many new friends from South Africa, Australia and the USA.

I strongly recommend both Discount African Hunts and this outfitter. John Martins set me up with a great outfitter, answered all my questions and made sure I had all my paperwork in order A to Z."

"I booked my crocodile hunt in Mozambique through Discount African Hunts. The hunt was great and my wife and I really enjoyed the service provided by the outfitter. Everything was done very professionally and the outfitter and his group went out of their way to provide us with a wonderful experience and a great time.

If we ever go back to Africa, I am sure that we will contact Discount African Hunts to set up another hunt with this outfitter."

"I was hunting with my son and my batchmate from school. We had an experience of a life time and will definitely repeat the experience again. The weather was perfect. We shot Kudu / Zebra / Wildebeest / Impala / Red Hartebeest / Blesbuck / a day of bird shooting." 

"We took back  memories for a life time  and will surly recommend the experience to other hunters."
