NOTE: The USFWS has signed a consent order where it has agreed to resume processing elephant import permits including those from Zimbabwe!. 

The best time to hunt these areas is February -  April while the elephants are coming out of the maize fields to feed on the maize. In recent years, many of the biggest bulls have been taken from July - November. There really is no bad time to hunt this area other than when the Limpopo river is flooded.

This is your chance to Elephant Hunt in Zimbabwe with one of the 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

Recently, the average has been over 65 lbs!  A 122# was taken here in 2015. That is the largest bull taken in Africa by a hunter in over 30 years!

One hundred pound Elephants 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. Two 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 approximately $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 65 lbs!

Gonorezhou Trophy ElephantMassive Zimbabwe elephant ivory

               These elephants do exist!                       This could be you!

This outfitter’s success rate on elephants in Gonarezhou has been over 70% over the past several years!

This area of Zimbabwe is also known for its trophy Cape Buffalo which can approach the 50” mark. The average taken in this area exceeds 40”.

Other animals are available per the Trophy Price List sheet.

This hunt will be conducted from a rustic lodge that features in-suite bathrooms and the facilities are designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Your PH will be a highly experienced dangerous game PH that has led many successful elephant expeditions in the past. This Elephant Hunt in Zimbabwe will be conducted on foot. You will locate large bull elephant tracks and then follow them until you can catch up and can assess the ivory. There are large herds of elephants here, allowing stalks that take you up close to large herds of elephants.

The best time of year to elephant hunt in Zimbabwe is the early season of January through June during the maize cropping season when the bulls come out of the national parks to raid crops. Many of these hunts take place at night and are some of the most exciting hunts for elephants on the planet!

Success during these prime months runs 90%

With that being said, there is no “bad time” to hunt elephants here, as there are just too many elephants in this area! Other good hunting months are August through November.

So what are you waiting for? Isn’t it about time that you put a trophy tusker in your game room?

"I booked my crocodile hunt in Mozambique through Discount African Hunts. The hunt was great and my wife and I really enjoyed the service provided by the outfitter. Everything was done very professionally and the outfitter and his group went out of their way to provide us with a wonderful experience and a great time.

If we ever go back to Africa, I am sure that we will contact Discount African Hunts to set up another hunt with this outfitter."

"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!."
