The Discounted Leopard Hunt Areas

This discounted leopard hunt will either take place in the West Nicholson area or the Marula area. Both areas are known as some of the best leopard areas in Zimbabwe. The West Nicholson hunting area is 30,000 acres and has consistently provided good-sized leopards for this outfitter for many years. The area is a 3-hour drive to the Southwest from Bulawayo. I have personally hunted this general area and took a leopard that killed a villager there in 2021. There are lots of leopards in this area.

The Marula hunting area is close to Matobopas National Park and therefore receives spill-over animals from the National Park. That provides the food to maintain a healthy leopard population which includes some big males!

The terrain consists of thick wooded areas mixed with open grasslands with rocky granite koppies and rivers scattered through the areas. This makes the perfect habitat for large leopard and these areas have produced some monsters that were over 17” SCI. This outfitter has been professionally recognized for taking many of the biggest cats taken during year.

LEOPARD HUNTING METHODS

Your hunt will begin by either shooting some bait animals or by checking the baits if you had arranged for pre-baiting in advance. Once a suitable male cat has been identified on a bait by trail camera, A blind will carefully be constructed to give you an unobstructed view of the leopard bait. Then you will sit in the blind from late afternoon until midnight or possible latter.

A typical day’s hunt will consist of a quick breakfast and then departing camp to scout for leopard tracks and to gather bait that is required to keep the baits fresh. After returning for lunch, you will continue hanging and checking baits and may hunt other animals when not doing the bait run.

Once a suitable male cat has been identified on a bait by trail camera, a blind will carefully be constructed to give you an unobstructed view of the leopard bait. Then you will sit in the blind from late afternoon until midnight or possible latter.

This hunt will occur on private land, so using lights at night during the hunt is legal!

This will continue daily until a leopard is harvested. After you have taken your leopard, other animals are available depending on the area you are hunting leopard in.

THE LEOPARD HUNTING CAMPS

The camp you will stay in will depend on the tag that is issued for the leopard hunt. The outfitter has tented or thatched-roof tented camps in both hunting areas that feature comfortable beds and in-suite bathrooms. It is also possible that you will stay in a nearby lodge if it proves more convenient to the leopard hunting area. Camp power is provided by generator. There is no cell phone service or internet in camp but periodic trips to a hill where you may receive service and data can be arranged.

GETTING THERE

You will fly to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe where you will be met by the outfitter. You will then drive from 2-3.5 hours to the camp, settle in and sight in your rifle. Your hunt will then begin in earnest. After the last full hunting day, you will depart camp and return to Bulawayo. You may need to stay overnight an additional day to facilitate taking and receiving the results from a Covid-19 Test.

Testimonials

"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.

'It was the most exciting hunt I have ever been on. We stalked a small bachelor group for a few days before I shot a mature cape buffalo with my Browning 375 H&H.'

'This was my third hunt with Discount African Hunts and each one has been fantastic.  I don't think I would book my future African hunts with anyone else.'

"This was my first trip to Africa and can positively say it will not be my only one. Words simply can not describe the events of the hunt.  I hunted with both longbow and compound and took a total of 12 animals.  I speak volumes to Discount  African Hunts. These guys know the ins and outs.  Thank you for my first Amazing African Adventure!"
