Full Bag Safaris in Zimbabwe

Full bag safaris allow a hunter to take four of Africa’s big five game animals.  Only the rhino is not currently hunted in Zimbabwe.  Therefore, to complete full bag hunting safaris in Zimbabwe, the lion, leopard, Cape buffalo and elephant must be taken.  Taking  full bag safaris in Zimbabwe will also require that the full array of plains game are available.  Many of these plains game trophies will become the bait that is used to lure in the lions and leopards.  Zimbabwe offers both good trophy quality and is probably the most affordable place to hunt big game in all of Africa

Full bag safaris in Zimbabwe target an elephant, and Zimbabwe is a great country to hunt elephant in, as several areas have an excess of elephants.  Many of the top elephant concessions in Zimbabwe are next to Zimbabwe's national parks.  Cape buffalo also make up a key component of  full bag safaris in Zimbabwe.  Zimbabwe has good herds of Cape buffalo and produces some great trophies every year, although the average buffalo taken by hunters in Zimbabwe runs in the 35-37” range.  Areas next to the national parks consistently produce some of the better buffalo that are taken in Southern Africa each year.

Leopards are part of  full bag safaris and Zimbabwe currently offers some of the best and most affordable leopard hunting in Africa.  Zimbabwe receives the largest CITES quota for leopard of all of the African countries that allow leopard hunting.  Zimbabwe also allows dogs to be used in some areas which increases the odds of success for a leopard hunt significantly.  Add the fact that Zimbabwe allows the use of artificial light when hunting leopards, and Zimbabwe becomes one of the best places to attempt taking all four big game animals on a full bag safari.

Lions are also on quota in Zimbabwe and the lion hunting in this country is pretty good.  Although quotas aren’t large, there is a stable huntable population of lions in many concessions, and again, Zimbabwe offers some of the most affordable wild lion hunts in modern Africa.  Although this country does not have the plains game populations it once had, sufficient quantities exist to fill out  full bag safaris in Zimbabwe.


"I spent weeks visiting websites for outfitters in Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, comparing pre-made packages and regular fees. In the end, for a 7-day, six animal hunt with my son as an observer/hunter, John Martins had the best price."

"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!."
