This is your chance to Elephant Hunt in Zimbabwe with one most experienced big game outfitters in Africa! This outfitter is one of the oldest and most reputable dangerous game outfitters in Zimbabwe, and operates in one of the best dangerous game concessions in Zimbabwe. The hunt will take place in the Gonarezhou region of southeast Zimbabwe, which is one of the last remaining trophy elephant concessions in Africa where a 100 # elephant is a real possibility!
The hunting areas consist of 660,000 acres and have unfenced borders with Kruger National Park and Gonarezhou Park. Giant tuskers come out of the parks at will. The average elephant shot here historically has been over 50 lbs.
In 2014, the average has been over 70 lbs! A 122# was taken here in 2015. That is the largest bull taken by a hunter in over 30 years!
One hundred pound Elephant are possible and do get shot here!
You will arrive in Harare, where you will be met by your PH and driven to the lodge that will serve as the base for your hunt. Four different lodges are used due to the massive size of this hunting area. The lodge that you will stay at will be determined by the peak elephant density and activity at the time of your hunt.
Charter flights from Johannesburg to the concession and back are available for $4,500 - $5,500. Some savings may be achieved by scheduling hunts to share flights with hunters traveling in the opposite direction.
This is the best trophy bull concession in all of Africa! Bulls are currently averaging over 70 lbs!
