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!


"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!."

"In August 2014 I took a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts in the Northwest Province of South Africa. The PH's worked hard to customize the hunt for me as I wanted a challenging stalk ending with taking the lioness at close range by an open sighted double rifle. They exceeded my expectations as 12 miles of tracking ended with me shooting the highly agitated lioness at a distance of 25 yards with a couple of rounds of 450 NE".

"I highly recommend a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts."

"I looked long and far for a good deal on a lioness hunt.  By far, Discount African Hunts had the best price.  I had the hunt of a lifetime and took a beautiful lioness at close range with my bow.  The Professional Hunter was first class, the lodge was first class and my whole experience was unbelievable.  I will book with John Martins when I return to Africa to hunt leopard  in Zimbabwe.
