Exotic Plains Game Hunting Safaris In Tanzania

Tanzania offers some of the best exotic plains game hunting in all of East Africa.  No one area offers all species, and Tanzania is a vast country with a poor road system.  Safaris must be carefully planned so that the targeted species are found within the hunting concession that one has chosen to hunt.

One of the better areas for exotic plains game hunting is an area in northeastern Tanzania called Maasailand.  Maasailand is known for its “East African” antelope.  These include the lesser kudu, East African impala, Gran’s Gazelle, Thomson’s gazelle, southern gerenuk, Coke’s hartebeest, fringe-eared oryx, eastern bohor reedbuck, Chanler’s mountain reedbuck, white-bearded wildebeest and Kirk’s dik-dik.   Fringing Maasailand are the topi antelope and a variant of the Gran’s gazelle known as Robert’s gazelle.  East African eland and rarities such as Abbott duiker and East African suni can also be found in certain areas of this region.

Central Tanzania features the Rungwa and Kisigo Game Reserves which are both excellent hunting areas.  Although primarily a big game hunting destination for leopard, buffalo and some lions, there is a good population of southern antelope species. This area offers some of the best sable and roan hunting in all of East Africa.  Sables in the mid 40’s and upwards are occasionally taken in this region.  Other common exotic plains game found here includes the East African impala.

The Selous Reserve features mostly the southern variety of exotic plains game but does offer the Lichtenstein hartebeest, the Nyassa wildebeest and the East African eland.  The Selous is known as more of a big game hunting area and plains game takes on more of a secondary role to the world-class dangerous game hunting that is found here.

Peter’s gazelle, puku, defassa waterbuck, and Lelwel hartebeest are also found in Tanzania in certain areas.  With this wide variety of exotic plains game that can be hunted, Tanzania stands out as one of the greatest exotic plains game destinations on the 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 would recommend this hunt although I would recommend John at Discount African Hunts even more. Areas can get hot and cold but John always knows the hot spots to send hunters." 

"Totally recommend!"

"First, I wanted to tell you the buffalo hunt with the outfitter you booked me with was great! The PH took me to a farm where there was a good herd of buffalo and I shot a 40” old dagga boy. I could have taken another one a bit wider, 42”, with hard bosses but he did not have that old rough beat-up look I was after."
